Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Do it well or not at all.

6 Jan

Three Kings Day-The Writer Next Door-epiphany-reyes mago

This might as well have been my maternal grandmother’s quote, for it was her mantra to her grandkids. I heard these words all the time growing up, while doing my homework, cleaning my room, drawing a picture . . . I still hear her words today, although she is no longer around. Whenever I set out to do something I always try to do it to the best of my ability and I must always complete what I start. I’m grateful to her for instilling these traits in me.

Happy Three Kings Day!

I hope everyone is having a terrific Three Kings Day (Epiphany). Tonight it is going to be a chilly night here in Florida (60º), so we’re going to have hot cocoa with our Rosca De Reyes (Ring cake). 😉

Happy Three Kings Day! I found an article on the Huffington Post that explains a little of the history of ‘Three Kings Day’.

Whether you celebrate ‘Three Kings Day’ or not there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy the treats that come with the day.

Rosca de Reyes is a pastry ring eaten on ‘Three Kings Day’. It’s delicious and there’s a surprise hidden within. Try this recipe from Daily Dish.
