Over at Me & My Quilts, I found this quote, “so you see, imagination needs moodling – long inefficient, happy idling, dawdling and puttering”… that she had copied from a book written in the 1930's by Brenda Ueland: If You Want to Write: A book about Art, Independence & Spirit. I can see why Julie wanted to remember that phrase; I love it, too. Julie, however, took the next step and began a series called Mindful Moodling-- what a great idea.

Yesterday was "get the new crowns" day. But they assistant left in a cord, and I have to go back. Not good...I hate going to the dentist and having to go back really annoys me.

Laddie has a doctor's appointment (stress test) at 7:30 this morning. So...Marty will pick me up at 6:45 in order for us to get to the Cottage, get Laddie, and get to the doctor's in time. This will be, as always, a minimum of four hours. Possibly longer, if things go as usual, and we spend as long in the waiting room as we did on our last visit to the cardiologist.

Yesterday, Fee and I went to Bass Pro, and I got a new pair of boots. Love 'em. Then we went to Copeland's Cheesecake Bistro. We made a meal of appetizers (fried eggplant for me and a crawfish dish for Fee), then we passed on the cheesecake for dessert and went for the white chocolate and almond bread pudding. Now, that is heaven on a fork.


  1. I read Ueland's book when I was in my glorious twenties and it spoke to me then. She is timeless, I'd say.

    And you always have some great leads to other sites...thanks.

  2. K -- I'm going to have to locate a copy! This one quote is so perfect, I'm eager to hear what else Ueland had to say.


Good to hear from you!
