7 Quick Takes

  • Our parish does Stations of the Cross every Friday during Lent, which for some reason, I've only remembered to go to once!  Let's hope I remember to go tonight, I think it's a wonderful devotion, and I really enjoy doing it.
  • My chickens are in their new home!  I'm sure they'll enjoy it, but we will miss them, especially little Bessie.  
  • I'm reading Solace in Suffering, writings of Thomas a Kempis for my reviewer program, very good and appropriate for the Lenten season.  I should have a review up soon!
  • Finn is getting big!  He's 5.5 months old now.  I love him bunches.  (His sitting on my lap chattering away and slobbering on my arm as I type).  His sisters are pretty enamored with him, too.
  • I renewed my Curves membership!  I had great results with them before, and only quit to help save money.  It's frustrating how much weight I've got to lose, after working so hard after dd2 to lose it, but it will come off (I hope!!)
  • I also started reading the Wheel of Time series (fantasy genre, if you're unfamiliar!)  I'm almost done with the second book, I really enjoy the series so far.
  • Ready for this cold to be OVER!  I'm sick of it!  I want some spring weather!  I want to get my garden tilled and planted, and put away winter coats!  Bah!

I'll have to check out the Wheel of Time series. I'm always looking for good reads.

Please oh please post pics of Finn when you can..or email them to me, LOL! I love seeing how babies grow and change and all..he was so adorable the last time you posted pics!

I loved Curves when I went, as well! I am SO not a gym person..geez..hate it..don't like the mingling with all the males, and people seemingly obsessed with themselves! I just wanted to lose weight, and Curves was great..hope you have great success again!

Glad your chickens are in their new home..sorry you had to get rid of them.

I'm totally with you on the cold. We got faked out a couple of times, and the kids played outside nearly all day, and I opened the windows. Now, I'm dressed like Spring, because I refuse to admit it's still cold..yet, I sit here freezing...lame! I'm ready to get out and work in that garden, too!

Great to "catch up" a bit with you! Pray you have a great day!
