Books -- reading and writing.
Home, cooking, the weather.
And whatever connections I can make between them.

Quaker Motto Calendar

Some of you may know of the Scattergood connection to this wonderful little wall calendar.

They are small. They hang perfectly over a writer's desk, a kitchen drawer, a bedroom chest. Or they tuck nicely into notebooks, totes, briefcases. 

The quotes are pretty ecumenical. You know those Quakers.
Everybody from Sirach (I'm sorry. I had to google that. I was raised in the Episcopal church and we didn't know much about Bibles...If all my friends hadn't been Baptists and Methodists and I hadn't regularly attended BTU and MYF and VBS, who knows if I'd ever learned a thing.):

"May the Lord grant you wisdom of mind to judge his people with justice."

to
Maya Angelou: "Let nothing dim the light that shines from within."

I've blogged about these before. Several times. 

For example
Here:  http://ascattergood.blogspot.com/2010/09/quaker-motto-calendar.html

And guess what? I over-ordered this year. I have a few motto calendars to spare.
If you'd like one, leave me a comment. I'll see what I can do!

(Depending on how many comment, I may have to draw names. Or see if my amazing sister-in-law, Marion Scattergood Ballard, has any extras to share.)

Let's let this run from right now until December 31st. Comment here or on FACEBOOK, and I'll add your name to the hat.

Thanks, and have a happy, healthy, productive, fun 2014!

Augusta, I need this calendar to help me mark the day your next book comes out. Also, 2013 wasn't a good year for me and I'm hoping this calendar will keep me mindful and positive during 2014.

You're entered, Sophie's Mom. But you'll need the next year to get my book's launch on it. Early 2015.
