The Words and Wisdom of Doris
July 24, 2010
If you take the time to read some of my sometimes wildly long product descriptions, you’ll find embedded stories about how I stumbled across fun products that I bring to Darn Good Yarn-ers!
Ever since watching Julie and Julia, it’s made me fall in love with my kitchen. No, I’m not making everything Julia Child’s style because I don’t have a defibrillator in my dining room. But I do like putting an apron on and chopping stuff and experimenting.
Actually, I have a funny story for you! Last weekend, I made gluten free chocolate chip cookies. For me, they were light, sort of like thick crepes. It was perfect for me. I said to my husband Mike, “You must have one! These are the best cookies ever!”. So, he starts eating it. I tell you, he had the saddest “Cookie Eating Face” I have ever seen. He said, “You said these were the best cookies ever’. Ouch…. I guess I needed a couple of more sticks of butter, some lard, maybe deep fried them and it would have been good!
So, a girl needs an apron. In my case, aprons. Enter, Doris! I found her wonderful aprons on etsy!
Darn Good Yarn now sells a couple of wonderful items she makes just for us crafters too:
But this morning, Doris emailed me and a few sentences stuck out in her email that I wanted to share with you:
remember, all the work can wait for a day – one must take time to enjoy themselves. I didn’t learn that until I took early retirement and I almost learned it the hard way. Now – I believe that 1/3 of our time should be work, 1/3 of our time for family and 1/3 of our time to just simply enjoy life
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! ~Nicole
