I know it is backwards but think about it.
I was listening to a radio broadcast. One of those vacuous ones where they interview people on the street. They were talking about the snow. This lady meant to say ” you take what you get”. But in her nervousness she said ” you get what you take”.
This sounded more true to me.
I don’t think we get what we deserve. I think we get what we accept, what we settle for and most times this is perfectly adequate. If we decide to take it on the chin – that is what we will get. It only gets better if we make it get better.
You get what you take.
The old codger used to say ” I’ll take it. I’ll pay for it. But I’ll take it.”
So, reach high!
No reason not to. I did not reach for anything yesterday. I just moaned and carried on and shivered and achieved nothing.
I made scones though with the Frederick flour from the mill- cheese and onion. I am still refining the recipe – working with these stone ground flours is fascinating me.
The sun is going to shine today so I am going to get moving early.
