(Words to live by?  Spring is here!  It’s cool and damp here, today.  And, it looks like it’s going to rain most of the week.  We didn’t have any real April showers, so I guess we need to make up for that before the real heat sets in.  The next mowing is going to be a bitch though!  Be well and do good, friends.  Workers unite!)   —   YUR

Answer:  TAKE HER SWEET TIME

(It took me a minute to get that this was more about her attitude than anything else!  All tried and true clue words today, and four of the six jumbles came up as new.  We’ve definitely seen “wytten” and “greeem” before.  The answer letter layout was a wonderful jumble.  None of the four answer words jumped out at me.  I knew the first two words were either going to be be MAKE, or TAKE, HER, and then the pun hit me.  Pretty good.  The hubby needs to chillax!  I get that they had to be sugar cookies for the gag to really work, but I’m not a big fan of them.  I’ll eat them at Christmas time, because of the festive shapes and frosting and sprinkles.  But, otherwise, they’re a little too bland for me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
