“A silly proverb in my place is “that you should always treat your towel very kindly because the part that wiped your ass today, might wipe your face tomorrow.”“ – JACQUELINE OBYLKAKOCHA
Trust the lovely Jaque from a cooking pot and twistedtales Thoughts and Tales Etc..A Lifestyle Blog with a Zing.
I have been reading some of your lovely Bloggers posts this morning . I have also been feeling a bit not such a happy chappy of late.
So this proverb has some serious truth in it added with Jaque’s signature zing of humour injected into it. I wouldn’t have expected her to leave her mark in being part of my #FollowGreatFootsteps without making sure she made my facial expression contort
I would like to add that perhaps when we clean our cloth make sure we put it on a hotter wash and add a bit more softener- just in case. Better to be safe than sorry, right? 😉
Who doesn’t know this fine lady’s Blog?
She makes up her own quotes. She has inspired me to start doing my own.
She is full of wisdom and has a wicked sense of humour.
She does not come across as a lady who suffers fools gladly.
Actually she she may depends what they add to the pot. 😉
She is hard to pin down and I wouldn’t want to.
I’m going to let this Dame talk for herself. She does it so well.
“I am a gregarious, avid reader, who loves writing and telling stories”
Want a taste of how good she is with the written word?
HERE YOU GO A Poem about Me

“I am still a child of Evolution, with varied interests ranging from pottery, painting, photography and gazillion stuff that I would like to try out.”
Nigerian born, lives in Dubai. She is bilingual in French and English.
‘Ambitious and Delicious’ should be her spirit totem name.

Dame Jaque is a bit of a party animal. Wild and very welcoming and generous with her monthly spreads.
“At the end of each month, we have a blog bash, that offers the opportunity to meet, greet and mingle with other bloggers new and old.
It’s been a proven success that helps to facilitate better cohesion of bloggers as well as driving your blogs growth.”

Cats sleep a lot, don’t they?
I read somewhere they sleep for like 17-18 hours a day.
What could possibly be going on that they need that amount of sleep to function?
Oh if karma lets me have my way please can I come back as my Tatiana?
This is going to be a short post. I am exhausted but I ain’t no quitter so today I’m linking my love of quotes/idioms/proverbs with zee challenge.
“Let sleeping dogs lie”
Sounds like someone had a bit of forethought and common sense when this idiom sprung up.
I think it actually goes back to Biblical times..
That being said, the Book of Proverbs (26:17) says:
He that passes by, and meddles with strife belonging not to him, is like one that takes a dog by the ears.
In other words, the saying “let sleeping dogs lie” has its roots in the Christian Bible.
