a new feature...

IMG_1485So I've decided that I should do a few weekly features on the old blog, to encourage regular posting.  I'm always seeking out new pieces of knowledge, so what better than sharing a "wednesday wisdom" feature?!  I definitely want to do a "friday favorites" feature.  Other features floating around in my head include "music mondays", "material mondays", "thrifty thursdays", and some sort of weekly recipe feature (which I'm not clever enough to name at the moment!).  What do you think?  What do you gals like reading about on blogs?  Maybe a "sunday funday", with optimistic motivational tips?  Well, lets just stick to Wednesday Wisdom for now anyway.
Since it's late, and I can't come up with anything more interesting off the top of my head right now, you get "word of the day".  It's a fun one!

Fund-raising was Cliff's bailiwick , anyway, and he seemed to have it in hand.
