Making Homemade French Toast & Random Thursdays

October 30, 2008 at 9:01 am 3 comments

Man!  I woke up feeling like a freight train hit me this morning.  My elbows hurt!  My head is stuffy.  I’m achy. For the second time in all history, I took my kids to school in my bathroom and slippers. Got dressed to take Boy Wonder just because I needed to find some Sudafed, and fast.

While there, found children’s Dimetapp for half off, bought three…ah!  To be well stocked on that makes me very happy.  We go through that stuff this season.

Rite Aid also had General Mills cereals BOGO, so I stocked up on two of the kid’s favs.  Ah!  Easy mornings!

They also had some very cute tan recycleable bags with some artsy trees and flowers on them.  I bought two.  Now, remembering to get them in the store with me!

French Toast: I did manage French Toast this AM…it was really good.  So glad the local Foodliner carries a bag of fresh thick sliced bread (called French toast, but you can use for anything)!!!  It makes great French Toast and you just can’t buy it anywhere else.

So, no great Martha Stewart magic here, but I beat 2-3 eggs, add a bit of salt, and add a touch of milk (not too much or it soaks into the bread too much=squishy).  Dip the bread on each side and cook on a griddle. We sprinkle them with a powdered sugar shaker (the one from Pampered Chef is my fav). Mmmm.

Tasks: clean out my closet for the carpet people, get ready for Halloween, check on Boy Scouts situation, clean laundry room, clean kitchen, declutter, hope to hear from Mom, look for replacement hamper, take a nap.

    I add vanilla and a dash of cinnamon to the eggs before dipping the toast in it to cook…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
