Seven Quick Takes Friday

This is just for Laura. Last week she showed a photo of her amazing dust bunnies and I told her that her dust bunnies have nothing on the dust bunnies in a house with real bunnies. I don’t really like to admit that I’m not a good housekeeper, but I found this dust bunny last Friday evening near my TV stand.

I sometimes think I will find another bunny in one of these.

I missed watching the Pope fly to Castel Gandolfo, but I was able to see them closing the doors of the Castel. Although it was a bit anti-climactic, tears came to my eyes anyway. I am just praying that the Cardinals follow the true promptings of the Holy Spirit and elect a good pope to lead the Church.


We’ll miss you!

I’m praying for some more interesting things to do at work. I ask for work and usually they give me something that takes an hour or so. I want a meaty project.

How’s Lent going for everyone? It is trying me. I think that the little mortifications that I apply to myself are really helping me see what needs to change. I don’t want to change! I also feel a little spiritually attacked. This happens to me every Lent and I think it’s a result of trying to get closer to God. I must resist the temptation to say it’s too hard.

I’m proud of myself because I have planned out the dinner menu for the entire month of March. I’ll probably look back at it later and find it lacking, but for now I’m glad it’s finished.

I had to get gas in my car on the way to work this morning and it cost $60.02! I never paid $60 for a tank of gas before! I’m glad I’m able to afford this, but I wish I didn’t have to. I can think of a lot of things I’d rather spend money on.

I got an e-mail this morning from Matthew Warner about “Read the Catechism in a Year,” saying that for copyright reasons, they can no longer send out daily Catechism lessons to all their followers, and so they have received permission to do what they were doing, only using YOUCAT. I am sure YOUCAT is fine, but I wanted the meat of the Catechism. I felt a bit hoodwinked. They should have gotten permission before they started, and if they couldn’t get permission, they shouldn’t have offered to send out daily Catechism e-mails. I am a little consoled since I read the whole message and they said that they will have links to the Catechism lessons, but it means a little more work on my part. Oh well, it’s probably better so I don’t get lazy.

Have a great weekend!

  1. Wow, that is too bad I was liking the daily Catechism emails. I have the YOUCAT, CCC, and the other one. I just need to read them all. I should get the meat somehow. Maybe Fr. Thomas has a method to the madness? 😀 Have a good week and my Lenten season is becoming very tiring!
