Lovin’ The Quick Cheese Quesadillas!

June 15, 2008 at 9:18 pm 2 comments

Mmmmm.  One of my new favorite treats this summer is a quick and easy cheese quesadilla.  A little butter spray, a skillet, and two slices of cheese broken up and spread between the layers.  Mmmmm.  Crispy, gooey, goodness!  And pretty low-fat.

I just about have the two older ones ready for camp!  I’ll be entertaining Red and living up the high life with him this week. 


Compared to church last Sunday–today, two weeks in, I didn’t have to wear sunglasses in church today–light from windows or overhead fluorescents no longer bothered me.  I could read all the screens without much blur exceptlong scriptures up there still cause me to have to slow down –my general speed reading doesn’t work. 

Otherwise:  driving is comfortable now. 

I’m able to stay up later the last two nights…if feels GREAT to be able to stay up comfortably past 9PM!  I went to sleep last night marveling over the panels on the doors to our bedroom.  I could see all their detail by the nightlight pouring from the bathroom.  I was not one to sleep in contacts, so I’d really never seen that before that time to day in this house. 

I woke this morning and saw.  I saw more than I was distracted by haze or blur.  It was a great Father’s Day. 

I’m planning major self-evaluation checkpoints at July 4th (1 month), our Anniversary on the 11th (just because), the start of school in August (3 months), and my birthday, September 1st (4 months).

    I commented a day or so ago about how we seem to have the same foods on our minds this summer and guess what…that continues to be true! I have made several cheese quesadillas this summer as a quick alternative to the usual turkey sandwich. I use shredded chesse instead of slices, but otherwise make them the same way. I also enjoyed putting some left over rotisserie chicken in a couple of them and dipping them in light sour cream. Yum!

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
