Thursday: The Day

March 12, 2009 at 12:20 pm 2 comments


This is the blooms up close outside my kitchen window.  Aren’t they crazy?


Working on my calendar.

Trying to gain some control of my crazy desk.  ARG!  A continual batte.

Planning weekend food–going through recipes.  Getting rid of cookbooks.  Cleaning the kitchen and bar.  Cleaning the inside fridge door.  Consolidating condiments.

Planning a grocery trip.

Watching HGTV.

Moving a photo that is too low.

Planning for son’s youth trip this weekend.

Nursing two boys who’ve had croup.

Nursing a ball of tension in my right shoulder blade–Day 3.  Avoiding muscle relaxer, I think it was making me feel–weird.

Trying to stay warm with another cold snap:  quilts, fires, coffee!

Trying to think of something I’m hungry for for lunch.

Still needing to get on the treadmill, get cleaned up, and get to a meeting tonight…this day seems too short suddenly.

What are you up to today?  What’s on your chore list this week?

    Post Office to mail a gift and some yarn.

    Wal*Mart for a few odds and ends.

    Found a neat canister I am going to use to keep hair brushes and combs sanitized.

    Finished knitting a super cozy warm button shawl. Wish I had enough to make all of my friends one. (Although it would be warm before I could finish!)

    Now thinking of some hot tea and catching up on my friends. 🙂

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
