six word fridays: this much i know

13 08 2010

that i don’t know enough but…

brining a turkey makes it juicySix Word Fridays
reading is a gift of discovery
chocolate heals the soul (it’s true)
spinning classes = torture disguised as fitness

my lovely daughter loves the wind
i can go through labour…naturally
the importance of my family’s needs
and the equal importance of mine

social media opens your personal network
mixing jasmine, mint, green teas = delicious!
taking risks is a good thing
but cliff diving? a bad idea

learning everyday…from successes and failures

{edit: I misspelled green tea as “grean” tea so have corrected it. I have also added the fyi note below.}

“the importance of my family’s needs
and the equal importance of mine”

This is so true, and I loved discovering it tucked into your prose amongst the other more practical things, like spinning classes and turkeys!

Have to agree on taking risks… and the cliff diving. That made me laugh.
These sentiments are so anchored to truth. I really enjoyed this!

Go through atural labor? Me, too!
Brining a turkey, never done that.

Belinda – i seriously recommend brining a turkey the next time you find yourself facing one. you can cook it til it’s crazy done and it won’t dry out.

I’m out of chocolate!! Now that’s something I can do to make my soul feel better. Pulling on jeans to go to the store……….You are the best! Love this post, and I really appreciate your comment on mine. I will survive. I always do, but kind words from a woman I have never met make it easier. So true about how social networking is a good thing – in moderation, of course.

Thanks……….cj

LOVE this so much: “the importance of my family’s needs
and the equal importance of mine”

And I’m glad I got to read your mom’s comment. I love when bloggers’ parents comment. So sweet. 🙂
