the chicken and the estate sale

hi there
this is not the post i planned for you today but some times things just happen...

trying to be uber efficient,  i spent an hour this morning prepping and cooking for dinner this evening.  popped it in the oven and continued working while the smells of roast chicken and vegetables and a bit of smugness wafted through the house.

but when a phone call comes ..  that says .. "I'm in the estate sale .. get here now!"
(the same sale we tried to get into yesterday 3 times.)

I did what I had to do >>
1.  hurriedly dressed 
2.  turned off the oven & took the chicken out (unfortunately left it on the counter)
3.  out the door

right,  the poor chicken ended up in the trash .. but, ..  the sale worth it!

just a few peeks for you ...

i'm so smitten with this little chest.

so how was your day today? 

ps;  and what's for dinner?

i'd like to share a quote that really struck me today from;

Man’s Search for Meaning, written by Holocaust survivor Dr. Victor Frankl:

"We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way."

hopefully we will choose wisely friends.
