Tuesday Getaway

Today I took a little trip to the big O and tried to switch a sweater I’d bought too big for The Girl last Sunday.  Turns out buying a size larger for her wasn’t such a swell idea.  Unfortunately, BG had tons of the, the O had none left in her size.  Grrr.

I did manage to get an ink tag off a jacket I’d bought for her in Nashville last week they’d forgotten to remove.

I got a new rug for my back entry (which I’d check on runners while I was there…kicking myself, but was doubting myself too much at the time on color to think of that.  It’s a brown and black and turned out just the right size…a big smaller than the last, per The Hub’s advice.  He was right!)  I may have to employ Susan’s investigative services–I’ve used my shopping gas money allowance for a while!

In my “purging the blue” from my now greenish kitchen, I also found a black trivet and spoon holder at Target.  Yeah!  Now for painting a big blue square left on the ceiling around the ceiling fan!  THAT is going to take some doing.

Bought some skin toned markers and new glossy paper to experiment with…why didn’t I think of using that glossy photo paper I hate in my printer rather than buying more?  Just thought of that!

I went to Panera bread…took myself to lunch.  Broccoli Cheddar soup and some honey wheat bread and sweetened ice tea.  On a cold, windy day, it HIT THE SPOT!

I turned the music up load and sang my way home, and nobody told me to turn it down.  Aaaaah.

Men were out doing major tree timming every few miles…we had to stop and wait for clearance.  I was glad to follow another vehicle who seemed familiar with the speed zones and traffic, makes that trip so much better!

I had a headache by the time I got home…and my son is constantly asking me about guitar chords (his BF is learning, so now he’s inspired.  He keeps whacking my guitar on everything in site, but I won’t complain…love that he’s trying…just not in my headache zone).  He’s back…he just wrote a song he wants me to hear…(“That doesn’t sound right,” he says”yup, better without the pick”.

Took Goldilocks to the dentist today for her first filling, she survived, nervous all last night and today.

Time for laundry and hopefully some time in my craft room tonight while The Hub is at a meeting!

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
