  • Go to Store  School to see Cats Video
  • Paint Store
  • Grocery
  • Return Flooring Samples
  • Supper
  • Deal with Cell Phone Issues
  • Work on Study
  • Declutter
  • Try Paint #2 in Great Room (Not sure I want to live in yellow every day…not sure if I’m a “yellow” person.  I’m more of a khaki-beige person).  Hmmmm.  It pushes us a little, but I’m not sure I want to be “pushed” in the family room where I live all the time.  I can take some risk in other areas.

    Supposed to read “SCHOOL”…with all the “stores” in mind, I can’t think straight! I don’t know how you do it, Kim!

    I have a yellow dining room, and I LOVE it!! Mine is a butter-yellow (took some convincing of the hubby – i think he thought i wanted the color of the butter TUB…not the color of the butter inside). It really is a neutral-y color!
    I also have a good friend who painted all of the main living areas of her house (living room, dining room, kitchen) a beautiful antique-y gold. I don’t know that I would have been able to do it, but once I saw the house and how warm/inviting it is…I thought it was great!

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

I recommend that you research and double check things on your own before taking any advice or instruction from this site.  Information is given in good faith for the time period in which it was written. I am also an affiliate of the Sure Cuts A Lot software, for Cricut, which means you don't need Cricut cartridges to cut any font or .jpg on your computer.  I get some pocket change for introducing you if you choose to buy it by clicking on my site.  And we all know I need more cardstock, so I do appreciate it.  I sometimes review other products for a fee, but I am not required to give a positive review, and post honestly as to my experience.  I hope you find this useful.
