3-Day Weekends...

,,, are heavenly, aren't they?  They just seem to go on forever, that is, until it's Monday afternoon, and you wonder what you did all weekend.  That's sort of the feeling I'm having, anyway.  I had an absolutely lovely afternoon tea at Lady Mendl's, which might be the most gorgeous tea salon I've ever seen.  It was exactly what afternoon tea should be, in my humble opinion.

I've yet to decide how I plan to spend the rest of my holiday, but I wanted to leave you with some quotes I've been pondering/enjoying lately.

"Faith is taking the first step, even if you can't see the whole staircase."
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

"One can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself."
- Leonardo da Vinci

"Accepting oneself does not preclude an attempt to become better."
- Flannery O'Connor

"Happiness depends upon ourselves.  To live happily is an inward power of the soul."
- Marons Aurelius

"The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time."
- Bertrand Russell

"When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering."
- Miguez Ruiz
