Our local NPT station has been airing the Ken Burn's film about the Roosevelt's--Theodore, Franklin and Eleanor.  Of course, my love for history has had me glued to the screen.  Such a complex family, so many challenges, such a legacy.

One of Eleanor Roosevelt's remembered quotes is:  Do the thing you think you cannot do.  Like many in this busy, fast paced world/life, I have felt overwhelmed.  With a three day week end to enjoy, I am going to use Eleanor's quote to guide me and face some of the things (projects) I think I cannot do. 


  1. It's a great series and a wonderful quote. Tennessee was beautiful when we were there. i miss all the trees and green living out here in the west.

  2. Oh I loved that series! I was glued to the TV when I watched it too. The Roosevelts have always been fascinating to me. Love Eleanor -- such an amazing woman!

  3. Great quote. Haven't seen the series yet. Your flower pictures from your previous post are gorgeous! Enjoy your weekend!

  4. Can't wait to see what you do with the things you think you can't do. I love miss Callie May Calico's name.

  5. You go after it, my friend!
    I watched the Roosevelt series and enjoyed it very much -- that's great television!
