For the Friday du jour, I bring you my 7 quick (or not so quick) takes with a bit of company girl coffee thrown in. Or tea, cause coffee takes too long to make!
First, I bring you my cup of tea.. literally. This tea is a great find that I found at Kroger. It’s just the “nice” store brand (Private Selection). And look, it even has the Good Housekeeping seal! I didn’t notice that before. I like loose leaf teas that have more dimension to them than just the normal, ground up packet. If I had my way, I’d only drink loose leaf tea.
I’ve been spending a lot of my “free” time reading the book Sarum by Edward Rutherfurd. It’s the “novel of England” but it’s really more a novel of Salisbury, or the Stonehenge area for us Americans. It’s really interesting and about 900 pages long. Hopefully it’ll last me another week or two!
I love my husband. I really do. But I especially love that when he wants something he usually comes up with a way to make me happy too. Case in point: he needs to use the desktop computer more. I prefer using a desktop if I have to type at all. I can use the netbook if I’m just reading things but if I have to type, it is a desktop I want! So my dear, darling husband’s solution is to put up a second computer. He’s also doing this for very cheap. My new computer (which he is building himself) will be made out of a bunch of random parts that make no sense to me and will sit on a nice black desk with a cool shelf from Walmart. By the window! I’ll be able to look out the window! As soon as the project is complete, pictures will be taken.
I finally have my short bookshelf by my big book shelves. We really needed a few more shelves and this also gives me a cute place to put flowers or pictures or some other decorative nicknack that is sitting in a box or closet somewhere. As soon as that’s done, pictures, I promise!
The super bowl is this weekend and my fantasy football quarterback is going! Go Saints! I am also baking cakes to look like their helmets. Can’t wait to get that done!
As Lent so quickly approaches I encourage you to check out Pope Benedict’s (or B16 as I like to call him) Lenten Message 2010. It’s on the subject of “justice” which I think is a great one for moms to mediate on as we are called every day to mete out justice, whether in the form of who gets the extra cookie (mom, of course. ;)) or in introducing our kids to their true “due”: the love God has for them.
I’m trying to decide what my new habit is going to be. In January I managed to establish a habit of taking a daily vitamin (it’s a prenatal). Have any ideas for me?
