FlyLady, Potluck, and My Birthday

August 29, 2007 at 9:18 am 1 comment

You just don’t see a title like that everyday. 

Okay, so FlyLady and I are hanging out. 

1.  I don’t need a shiney sink to make me happy every day.  If it’s just under control, I can deal.  Mid morning seems my best clean up and shine time.

2.  I may or may not follow my evening schedule.  It just depends on whether the family will float okay without it or not.  Last night, I went to bed at 8:30.  I was very tired.  I took a couple naps yesterday.  The drainage this chick has is beyond fun.   I’m singing on Sunday.  I don’t know the song.  No…the sink is not the priority of the day.

3.  I will declutter.  I’m not exactly sure how to get rid of all these “floaters” around my desk, but THAT is getting to me and would make me very happy to see changed.

Right now, I have to make dish for a lunch pot luck, get a bath, fold some laundry, and get going:  Chicken Tetrazzini is what I’ve decided on.  It’s recognizable, and my family loves it last week: 


1 can cream of chicken.  1 can cream of mushroom, chopped up chicken, cooked spaghetti, celery salt, salt, warm all together in microwave, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  Stick in oven until cheese browns a bit, but not so long that the spaghetti gets crispy…nobody likes crispy spaghetti.

Finally, my birthday is not until Saturday, lest I threw you off last week.  Still plenty of time to send me an ecard or tell me how wonderful I am.  My email address is

Okay, that’s all.

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
