O maior conquistador não é aquele que conquista grandes coisas, mas sim o que conquista as pequenas e as torna grandes!


Here's a dozen of my favorite things never to apologize for:


1) Never apologize for acting on your instincts.
2) Never apologize for being passionate.
3) Never apologize for being smart.
4) Never apologize for demanding respect.
5) Never apologize for saying no.
6) Never apologize for not embracing someone else's agenda.
7) Never apologize for disagreeing.
8) Never apologize for your faith.
9) Never apologize for your own sense of creativity.
10) Never apologize for ordering dessert.
11) Never apologize for being funny.
12) Never apologize for living your truth.

Every one of us casts a shadow.

There hangs about us, a sort of a strange, indefinable something, which we call personal influence--that has its effect on every other life on which it falls. It goes with us wherever we go. It is not something we can have when we want to have it--and then lay aside when we will, as we lay aside a garment. It is something that always pours out from our lives . . . as light from a lamp, as heat from flame, as perfume from a flower.

The ministry of personal influence is something very wonderful. Without being conscious of it, we are always impressing others by this strange power that exudes from us. Others watch us--and their thinking and actions are modified by our influence."

"Be very careful, then, how you live--not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity." Ephesians 5:15-16

Lemon Marmalade

 

  • 1 kg lemons
  • 2 kg granulated sugar
  • 1 vanilla pod, split, seeds scraped out and reserved
Top and tail the lemons. Juice them, and then slice the rinds as thinly or thickly as you like. I think thinly is better, but will allow you the freedom to choose. Put lemon mixture into a large pan, and cook gently for a few hours until the lemon rind is soft. The liquid will have reduced by about a third.
Add the sugar. Boil, and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Then boil rapidly until the setting point (* see note) has been reached. This took about 40 minutes for me, though start checking at 20.
Turn off the heat. Stir through the vanilla seeds, and pour into hot, sterilised jars (* see note). Seal immediately. Use within 2 years
NB: To check for setting point: when you start boiling the jam, put a saucer in the freezer to chill. After boiling for the required time, drop small dribbles of the jam onto the saucer and wait a moment. If, when you poke the puddle of jam with your finger, the surface forms a wrinkle, the setting point has been reached. To sterilise jars, wash them in warm, soapy water, rinse, and dry on a baking sheet in a low oven.

UK TEDDY AND CRAFT FAIR IN CATERHAM, SURREY.



I HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF GOING TO THE SPRING CRAFT AND TEDDY BEAR FAIR IN CATERHAM, SURREY WHICH WAS HELD ON SATURDAY THE 9TH OF APRIL. I FLEW IN ESPECIALLY TO MEET ALL THE GREAT TEDDY ARTISTS. I WAS EXPECTING TO SEE MORE ARTISTS BUT THE ONES THAT I MET WERE PROFESSIONALS IN THEIR WORKMANSHIP. EMELIA POLLARD OF HIGGYS BEARS GAVE ME SOME TRICKS OF THE TRADE.

I MET SASHA KLESHEVA AND ANN GARDNER AND THEIR TEDDIES. I ENJOYED SEEING ALL THE DIFFERENT CHARACTERS, SHAPES AND SIZES OF TEDDIES.

I ALSO MET DIANA HUBER-PERKINS OF H & G CREATIONS DISPLAYING HER BEAUTIFUL GREETING CARDS CREATED FROM HER ORIGINAL WATERCOLOUR PAINTINGS.
