Thursday. Vote for the Kitchen Floor Revolutionary. Who Would That Be?

Cleaning house when no one is home is the most boring enterprise.  It’s a good thing it’s so cold or I’d be outside working on my spring flower beds.  It’s never too early to look for sprouts, you know.

On the other hand, I’m sure I will be delighted when I am caught up from the holidays.


On the upside, I just made my very first cheese quesadilla all by myself, at 10:30AM.  It was very easy and very good, except I had no sour cream in the house.  Don’t be judging.  As I’m eating meals instead of snacking, I consider that a health food victory.  Small steps people.  Small steps.  We don’t want to rush into anything and fall head long into some deep pit of overdoingit.  That would not be a balanced approach to anything.

I’ve got it all figured out.  Totally.  Well, onto this kitchen floor.  Man.  I hate kitchen floor cleaning.  I have this idea where houses of the future will have “grate systems”…the floor will sort of open up to a grate and shake.  All matter on the floor will be dispensed of into some channeling system and flushed away.  Then, mopping will also not be required, though I’ve not figured out the kitchen car wash just yet.  Men can find a way to get the car washed without washing it and we’re still scrubbing the floors by hand.  There is a great injustice in this whole scrubbing the floor issue.  THAT should be an election caucus issue.  I might vote for someone who could rectify that.

    I would love that. I’m up to my eyeballs in laundry and dirty floors. I’m just now getting to the point where I can SEE the floors after putting stuff away for a couple days and they’re NOT pretty underneath.

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)

"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
