Monday–Just Blogging

Just got finished stringing some green beans my mom brought me for supper.  It’s nostalgic to do it, but man, am I glad for store bought green beans!  I started sitting out in the sun, but it got too hot in about fifteen minutes, so I moved to the breezy porch.  Aaah–what long summer days are for, I suppose!  Getting ready to go see if I have my first garden zucchini for supper!

Feeling very rested today.  Got to sleep in uninterrupted this morning.  Finally!  My sleep has been very interrupted in the mornings lately.  Seems to throw me off all day.  I must be going to bed too late.

Did some Cricut tests today, hope to post those results soon.  Some fonts and doodlefonts print fine, but best to do in advance during chores and have for projects…they take too long for the Cricut to draw them “on the fly”.  In any case, still so unique that I keep buying them.  I like having things different than on the standard Cricut cartridges, and I like paying a lot less for them. A lot quicker to get trendy designs to use fonts than to wait for a cartridge.

Well, off to see what else I need to be tackling!  I hear the buzzer to the drier going off!

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

Please know that I am not posting as an expert, but as a fellow traveler. I recommend that you research and double check things on your own before taking any advice or instruction from this site.  Information is given in good faith for the time period in which it was written. I am also an affiliate of the Sure Cuts A Lot software, for Cricut, which means you don't need Cricut cartridges to cut any font or .jpg on your computer.  I get some pocket change for introducing you if you choose to buy it by clicking on my site.  And we all know I need more cardstock, so I do appreciate it.  I sometimes review other products for a fee, but I am not required to give a positive review, and post honestly as to my experience.  I hope you find this useful.
