Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth. Thomas S Monson

Sunday Sayings

"The only real stumbling block is the fear of failure.  In cooking you have to have a what-the-hell attitude."  Julia Child

Happy Birthday (August 15th)  Julia!

I'm a jump off the bridge kind of person..unless it's really jumping off the bridge. I think once you hit 60 you lose a lot of the fear to attempt something new (as long as it doesn't hurt your knees or hips-lol) It's not a mistake to fail, only to never try in the first place. I just read the car seat cover post Sue...that little one is precious!! and I love your husband's request :D I tell my kids (all in their 30's) that it's a miracle that they're even alive today. We didn't have seatbelts for a lot of years.
Have a great week!

My best cooking has been when I didn't have an ingredient and had to bunt. It is always scary, but I keep on doing it.
