Top of the Morning October 16



Welcome Monday beginning of a fresh new week.  Hope you enjoyed your weekend.

The weather here is still perfect-o. Rolled out my hoodie collection and am enjoying wearing them again.

Love having the doors and windows popped open and crisp fresh air filling the house.  That and hearing all my fabulous chimes doing their thing through the openings.

I gathered these for today’s “goodie” click list of laughter, inspiration,  food-for-thought .

Beginning with :
Things you should never say in an elevator.  I laughed hard at all!  Two in particular… The guy guy dressed up like an undercover someone & the sorry I have to do this right now.
Funny stuff.

SUPER GLUE (!)  I’ve read some of these things about Super Glue once upon a time and I’m gonna  put a little tube in my carry bag  to have it easily accessible.  Never know when a situation might present itself.

If someone in a crowded room says, “What I could use right now is some Super Glue,” I’ll jump into save the day mode and whip out the little tube from my bag and say, “Voila!”

THE CREEPIEST PLACE TO VISIT IN EVERY STATE – ’tis the Spooky season.  Fun to read about, but you won’t catch me actually stepping foot at one of these places!  Never been much of a scare-thrill seeker.  ha

Pumpkin Burrata Baked Ziti is on my to-make-list! 
I consider myself pretty savvy about food and knowing my way around a kitchen;  however, I’ve never been introduced to Burrata.  So I looked it up.  Totally sure now that I’ve seen what it is, I’m gonna to use it in some great recipes.  If you didn’t know either – here’s what Burrata is (( click )).

WOW!  French Onion Dip … and the whole caramelized onions magic happening via the oven?  Game changer!

The Polish Dumplings — Trifecta!  mashed potatoes, butter and cheese tucked into little finger food!  I’ve never really been in on doing the rolling out dough thing (wish I was !!).  However, I’m definitely gonna get my rolling pin out of the pantry drawer, dust it off and make these dumplings.
Too fabulous sounding to resist!  AND I’ll make plenty so I can freeze some for another day.

PECAN*PUMPKIN*BARS … says it all.

Loved and laughed at the true-that reasons why grooming dogs costs more than US getting a hair cut.

HELLO!  Never going back to cleaning my tub/shower on my knees again.  Who knew?  Now we all do.

Candid Camera – gotta love these cool people who didn’t know what was up, but took it in stride!  Role models one and all!

Thanks for popping by this Monday mid-way thru October and giving us a read + thoughts + comments + sharing.  Grateful.

Here we go –
Click and Enjoy!

“Skipper, a special message just came in for you from the admiral,” the sailor said to his captain and saluted.  “I have it right here.”

“Read it to me,” the captain ordered.

The sailor read, “You are without a doubt, the most conceited, self-absorbed, EGO-MANIAC ever to command a ship in the Navy.”

The skipper responded, “Have that communication decoded at once!”

For some people, it’s all about them.

For others, it’s all about you.

Like author Leil Lowndes says,
“There are two kinds of people in this life.  Those who walk into a room and say, ‘Well, here I am.  And those who walk in and say, Ahh, there you are.'”

Which are you?  Are you more focused on getting your own needs met, or on easing the burdens of others?  Are you mostly trying to make yourself happy, or are you interested in the happiness of those around you?

Albert Einstein reminded us that “life isn’t worth living, unless it is lived for someone else.”  And toward the end of his life, he removed the portraits of two scientists:  Issac Newton and James Maxwell from his wall.  He replaced them with portraits of Mahatma Gandhi and Albert Schweitzer.

Einstein explained that it was time replace success with the image of service, because the greatest success of all is when we realize that it’s not all about us and the greatest happiness is to be found when we share the happiness of others.

    Regarding Daymaker’s comment on Albert Einstein: “Life isn’t worth living unless it is lived for someone else.” Wow, for me anytime Einstein is mentioned, my mind perks up. Einstein was a GENIUS yet obviously thought of others. I recall at the end of his life (1955) a student working on his doctorate asked Einstein was their anything left to write a dissertation on? Einstein answered, “Yes, find out about prayer.”

      That’s cool, Marty. I’ve always been an Einstein quote fan. For years an Einstein calendar was my
      Christmas gift request. Great black and white photos with thoughtful quotes.
      Thanks for reading us and sharing a comment.

    Pumpkin pasta and pumpkin bars – yum yum yum!

    Very interesting about Einstein. And refreshing. In a time where science and religion don’t often peacefully coexist, it’s good to hear that so prominent a scientist also had a deep faith.
