Still dealing with the remnants of a migraine. I had to work yesterday, due to 2 stores that had special projects, even though I should not have been driving ... ugh. So, I took today off to hopefully get rid of it. Starting to finally feel less pain.

Going through old emails and reading articles I missed and watching some videos I missed. Finding lots of good quotes, too.

“All plants are our brothers and sisters.
They talk to us and if we listen, we can hear them.”
– Arapaho Proverb


There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls.
George Carlin


You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.
Mark Twain


Great minds are always feared by lesser minds.
Dan Brown


Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.

Emma Lazarus

Birds are a miracle because they prove to us there is a finer, simpler state of being which we may strive to attain.
~ Douglas Coupland

"If we see a child who is two or three, perhaps four years old, we find a free human. Why is this human free? Because this human does whatever he or she wants to do. The human is completely wild. Just like a flower, a tree, or an animal that has not been domesticated--wild!" The Four Agreements Don Miguel Ruiz

His labor is a chant,
His idleness a tune;
Oh, for a bee’s experience
Of clovers and of noon!
–Emily Dickinson, American poet (1830–86)

Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.
~ Chinese Proverb

The moving Moon went up the sky,
And nowhere did abide;
Softly she was going up,
And a star or two beside.
–Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)

Finally feeling better. Just got everyone to bed. Kayla ran around for a while when I was changing bedding and filling dinner bowls. Ezra was supervising but got tired of the baby chasing him!
Ezra's tired of baby-sitting.
Kayla loves kale.
Kayla is 9 weeks old.
