Spend the Afternoon

"Spend the afternoon. You can't take it with you."

~ Annie Dillard ~


  1. Can't put it any plainer than that! Great advice.

    Ahh good idea. Now how shall I spend it...

  3. Is this sort of like..redeeming the time....

  4. Oh, I wish I could spend the afternoon with you! Instead I've tagged you to play the middle name game. If you don't have one, you can choose any name you like ;-) The miniature tea set is adorable.

  5. What an awesome quote! And if you want to read an amazing essay, read Dillard's "Living like Weasels." It's one of my favorite things to read aloud...either to an American Lit class (juniors) or even to adults. I've even shared it with Bible study groups... For a great collection of essays, read her Teaching a stone to Talk. As you can see, she's a favorite of mine...

  6. Well this past weekend I spent Saturday afternoon and part of Sunday afternoon with my granddaughter, so they certainly weren't wasted afternoons! The memories will be nice for both of us. She loved the little tea set as much as I did!
