Happy July! Hope you enjoyed your Independence Day holiday and you’re movin’ through summer happily.
Here’s Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of the Best Summer Songs of All Time. It’s pretty all encompassing and I’m thinking about creating a Spotify play list based on it. Why not?
If you like sandwiches and you like books, The Sandwich Book is for you.
To all the stylish teachers out there, how about this guy? Teacher Dale Irby wore the same outfit for yearbook photos for 40 Years.
A few weeks ago, I showed an example of cool stuff made from trash. How about shoes made from tires?
My daughter and I went for a run this week while it was raining. Rain on a warm summer day is one of my favorite smells. What are yours? Here’s a grouping of someone’s I found on Pinterest: Kathryn’s Fave Smells.
I’ve found some odd stuff in our backyard, but never a Civil War cannon ball…..at least not yet.
A quote from Hemingway, who died this week in 1961:
“There are some things which cannot be learned quickly and time, which is all we have, must be paid heavily for their acquiring. They are the very simplest things and because it takes a man’s life to know them the little new that each man gets from life is very costly and the only heritage he has to leave.”
And lastly, a word from Nelson Mandela, which is timely as we just celebrated America’s Independence Day:
“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”
Enjoy your summer weekend!
