I'm reading through the Building a Better World in Your Backyard book, and some quotes really jumped out at me...so I thought I'd try making them into memes!

What are your favorite quotes from the book (or from Paul in general)?

I don't think this quote was from the book, but it was too fun to pass up!

(I found some really fun pictures of Paul in this thread, and this picture seemed perfect--it's like he's just about to say "so I can be even lazier.")

Exactly! And, the grass can be the "playing field," too!

This one was fun. My husband said I nailed "the mommy meme" style perfectly, .

I really love the bits about clothes drying, and couldn't resist making this one!

Nobody try to read the "recipe"! I had fun making it up, and I'm hoping the cursive font covers up the fact that photoshop doesn't have spellcheck!

Not quite sure I like the image, but it's hard finding good ones to fit the awesome message. EDIT: I made a second version. Is it better?

Yeah, but how did the squirrel get in there? Was it because of the tiny ad?
