Quick Takes vol #9

  1. Today is the fifth anniversary of my dad's passing, I of course miss him.  This is the first year I've really reflected on the fact that Elisabeth won't know him in this life and what I will want to share about him as she gets older
  2. A favorite book about his favorite mountain to climb.  "Look to the Mountain" by LeGrand Cannon.  A nice book about colonial New Hampshire if you like historical fiction, which I do
  3. Daffodils are blowing!!! And I have hope of Tulips!
  4. Started Chesterton's "Orthodoxy", not yet really into it, may require a solid chunk of time.  Hopefully this weekend
  5. I have been so encouraged but how quickly prayer vigils have been put together for Stellan, the baby with a heart condition (chronic SVT).  Seeing new technology used in such a positive way is really heartwarming
  6. Still preferring to hold someone's hands when walking, E. has started grabbing both my hands and yanking with all her might to get me to stand up and following her where she wants to up.  Usually up the stairs.
  7. Need to get gates up!
