Local Salvage Groceries This Week

I LOVE going to a local grocery salvage-goodwill type store.

It totally makes my day every time I go.  I get to try out new products, new brands, and it reminds me of foods I like, but don’t tend to buy at the store on a regular basic, but will, for less than a buck a box, without the bother of coupons (and you all know how I love me some good coupons!)

Also pictured somewhere are a little roll of  Mexican wafers 3/$1.00.  They are like fortune cookie flavor, only flat, in a wafer.  They are crispy, and oh so good with a glass/cup of tea! I’ll be getting some more probably.

Also a box of “Pumkin Gingerlies”  (pumpkin ginger chews, 70% organic, 100% natural, No Transfat.)  They were an NASFT Outstanding Cookie Award finalist, whatever that means.  It also says “Cookies with a Cause” on the package.  I’m not sure what that means exactly either…I know what cause cookies have WITH ME!  😀

Okay, so on the BACK of the container, it says, “Buttery pumpkin and spicy ginger…crunchy outside and chewy within…for a super-delicious treat, serve warm over vanilla ice cream.” (I plan to try that!)  Also, they placed “2nd in 2001 in the Outstanding Cookie Competition at the International Fancy Food Show, a Contest judged by over 100 of the world’s most respected “foodies”.

When shopping salvage, always check the date on the boxes; sometimes a great date matters, sometimes, it doesn’t matter if it’s a month over.  You decide.

Okay, back to my iced tea, Mexican cookies, and foot massage (note to self, hide from children or I’ll never see it again) for two minutes before I have to run out the door again.

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)

"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
