Sage Words Sunday a la Duo Posted on July 12, 2015 by unionhomestead Homemade Rocky Road was the perfect accompaniment – visually, contextually and who’s going to argue with the taste – to this week’s words from Dr Seuss. Job well done, Farmer and Princess; strike a pose! Share this:TweetEmailLike this:Like Loading... Related

I have always enjoyed Dr. Seuss and now my memory is jogged I remember that splendid quote. I am going to copy it out and put it up somewhere.
It’s always nice to be reminded it okay to be ourselves 🙂
Well I stopped pointing out parallels but…Dr. Suess is also a favorite philosopher at the Walker home and at the moment, I am studying art from Dr. Suess!! So my Dutch inquisitive mind (= downright nosy) is awoken…who is the beautiful Princess Nikita? xo Johanna
I know that Dr Seuss art with a Johanna twist will be an absolute knock out! Princess Nikita is The Farmer’s girl friend and a delight to have on the Homestead 🙂
Thanks! And how exciting to have a Princess added to the family. In the last couple of years, we have had several Princesses floating through the house here…some I was sad to see leaving, others not so much;0) So far, nothing serious. But it is exciting. Your Princess Nikita looks lovely.
I did not know that was a Dr Seuss quote. In the Navy when I was a very lowly rank, we were constantly being admonished by one particular Petty Officer – I don’t mind, and you don’t matter. So it took me a couple of reads of the chalk board to get the quote right in my head, but now that I have – what a difference! And this must be my morning for enlightenment because I’ve only learned now that Rocky Road can be a dessert – until this moment, I always thought it was just a type of ice cream.
Rocky Road is the ultimate in decadence! Save the ice cream for affogato, I say – which is we intend to use the little coffee set (which I have also been hankering after – hoping that no one else would snaffle it before I could justify buying it) for.
It’s amazing how, with a little spin, that quote can be turned from the ultimate put down to quite the pick-me-up.
Hard to disagree with that but not always easy to do it.
