Quick Takes Vol. #75

  1. Today is in the 50's and very spring-like which is nice ~ though Monday into Tuesday we had snow. I'm actually enjoying watching the seasons change ~ it is nice to begin to anticipate spring without being completely over winter.
  2. However it was in sense a very ill timed snowstorm as the last part of our roof repair was scheduled for Tuesday morning ~ quote our contractor "If we didn't have bad luck we would have no luck". Hoping for better luck in March!
  3. New favorite game of the Toddler, borrowing Dr.Dad's stethoscope and making us all take deep breaths as she listens to our hearts, back, arm, nose.
  4. Praying for the victims of the earthquake in New Zealand.
  5. Have largely sorted out my plans for Lent ~ book, and discipline, though still discerning options and ideas for almsgiving.
  6. Project Toddler Room off to a good start; the room is 80% cleared out, next step select bedding and coordinating paint color and pick up the bed.
  7. Plans for the weekend: Family birthdays!!
Please visit Conversion Diary to enjoy the rest of this weeks Quick Takes.
Happy Weekend!!


  1. I'm so glad I clicked on this post. If I hadn't, I would have remained totally unaware that it is warm out. In a state of disbelief I ran into the kitchen to check my little weather station thing. It's 58 on my shady porch. Yay!

    You're way ahead of me on the Lent preparations. I have books ready, but little else outside of my plans for crafts I will be doing with the girls. I guess I need to get moving.

    Thanks again for making aware that it's nice out today. I really need to start watching the news so I have a clue about the weather!

  2. Good job on the Lenten prep . . . you are so much more prepared than I am!

  3. Oooo, so jealous of the warm weather! We have windchills of -40 all weekend. Brrrrr.

  4. I was gonna say I was super jealous of your warm weather, then I read Young Mom's comment and realized it's not so bad here after all!

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Will you share pics of the room when it's done?
    Have a fun weekend!

  6. We have the opposite weather... it was warm earlier this week, now it's cold and snowy.

    Have a great weekend!
