A Day’s End

December 11, 2007 at 11:43 pm

Just sitting here, having completed our first homemade Christmas ornaments.  Aaaah, the joy of motherhood.  Such a delightful little warm feeling.

My green tea has warmed by bones on this 70 degree winter’s day, and I’m now enjoying my new favorite treat:  Wheat Thins: Toasted Chips, Veggie flavor.  Well, I WAS delightfully enjoying them until The Hub came over here just now, right here, in my zone, and started wondering out loud, in serious conversation “who ever corrupted the wheat thin”. 

I really think the man has got to learn to appreciate “The  11PM Snack/Bloglines Zone”.  Hmph.

Well.  In any case, I have to say that I am proud, once again, to have elicited such positive response to my new word for my man, “The Hub”.  I have begun to see it crawl around blogdom.  Ah, to be such a force of internet linguistics.  It’s a gift.  Such rich vocabularly.  Okay, so my son sang “holy infant so tender and vile”, I know.  They take after their Dad on that.

But, isn’t it a fitting twist of words I chose:  for my world so revolves around The Hub!  I love it.

Until he starts critiquing my late night snack, my blogline zone. 

I may have to revert him back to “hubby”, which, all in all, is not as flattering at all.

Okay, so enough of that.  Here’s my find of the night:  WARNING: email chainworthy content if you click here!  Pretty cute!  I realize after I start holidays why women prepare so many “snacks” to have laying around…otherwise, we never have time to eat a meal and that’s the truth.  I’m just wasting away.  The dryer is strinking my jeans, but that’s another blog entry.

Also while you are over there checking out the humor, note these awesome looking recipes:  Wild Rice Soup Recipe, and  This Amazing Sounding Cider Recipe (goodness by the microwaveable single-dose cup)

On another blog, don’t miss this:  I  want to print out these soup recipes contributed by readers over at BooMama last week.

So much to do, so little time!

An Ordinary Miracle: Sarah McLachlan Think for Yourself



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)
