Whew. A Full Day.

Well, so today didn’t get the level of devotion or complete organization that I was hoping for, so no “after” pictures just  yet…but I hope to keep knocking those areas out.   I got my bedroom declutted, my bathroom decluttered, the mudroom decluttered, the TV area decluttered and vacuumed, my sewing material pile gone through, and had Boy Wonder take the trash to the burn pile.  I also had the kids help me go through our marker and pencil box to sharped and dispose. My desk is still not there.

We also had friends over for a couple hours, stopped by the grocery, and got half of Boy Wonder’s list tackle, and had Kroger chicken, corn on the cob, zucchini & squash, and homemade sweet rolls I made with the bread machine yesterday for supper.  I didn’t have bread flour, so they were heavier than I like.  I want to try again.

We still have another playdate I’d like to fit in before school starts, but hopefully we’ll get it all in!

Turns out, the hub came home and said, “Guess what?  I didn’t have to work this weekend.  I had the schedule mixed up or they changed it.”

So, that’s a bit of a bummer considering I didn’t go to the conference.

But, I think my house really needed me, and he needed help with the floor, so I’m going to try to have some special time doing something the refuels me tonight!

What are you doing for you to refuel yourself this week?

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
