Keep Cool

“It amazes me that most people spend more time planning next
vacation than they
do planning the rest of their lives.”

Patricia Fripp

“Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and
like it.”
–  Russel Baker

“Summer is the time when one sheds one’s
tensions with one’s clothes, and
the right kind of day is jeweled balm for
the battered spirit. A few of
those days and you can become drunk with the
belief that all’s right with
the world.”
–  Ada Louise Huxtable 

“Our fear of death is like our fear that summer will be short, but when we
have had our swing of pleasure, our fill of fruit, and our swelter of heat,
we say we have had our day.”
–  Ralph Waldo Emerson

And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.            ~F. Scott Fitzgerald


About Theresa

I live in an old farmhouse in upstate New York (no, *not* the big city!) in the country with my family, two dogs, two calves, and two horses. I love to cross stitch, quilt, read, and look at needlework blogs :) and I love coffee *and* tea!
