The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. -Proverbs 1:7

Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost you all you have, get understanding.-Proverbs 4:7

1. I'm the kind of Girl Scout leader who has two troops (On paper. One is actually Alicia's troop.) and forgot until this morning it's "Thinking Day". Well, it was two days ago. In theory, they should go to some big "Thinking Day Shindig", but that isn't going to happen this year. The little ones thought about their world and ate French cookies. The big ones would just roll their eyes. Because the thrill of Thinking Day has evidently passed (about 5 years ago). I used to be much better at the Girl Scout thing.

2. Thinking about (and realizing) how quickly one can prepare a vegan meal if one doesn't go all crazy with it. Huh. Just throw some stuff together and call it good. (In this case, butternut squash, spinach, garlic, onion, rosemary, a splash of olive oil and a carton of vegetable broth.)

P.S. In my dream world, I'd be baking all of our bread. I'm sort of living there right now; in that dream world. We'll see how long it lasts this time.
