Make sure you leave a comment on my Catholic Speakers Month post about Sr. Helen Prejean, so you can be entered in the giveaway to win a copy of one of her books, either Dead Man Walking or Death of Innocents.
So I got new glasses this week. I had my first eye exam in two years, and my perscription changed so I needed new glasses. What do you think?
I’m not sure yet. I loved, loved, loved my purple cat-eye frames.
Just finished cycle #5 trying to conceive. Am holding my breath, saying a prayer and jumping back on the TTC hampster wheel. At least I’m not waiting a year to call a doctor this time. Now I just need the NaPro doc to call me back! I am stalking her. No, really.
I think things might be quiet around here for a while. I am going to try and post once a week, and I am still plugging away on my Catholic social teaching posts. I just need a break from the computer. I am longing to read more, to spend more time in prayer, and frankly I need a break from the onslaught of (a) political bullshit and (b) pregnancy announcements. It seems like every time I sign on to the internet/facebook, I either want to punch someone, cry, or both.
Next week I am going to post a guest post from a lovely woman who was in my grad program at Loyola. She is working with an awesome community garden in Chicago, and she’s going to be doing semi-regular guest posts about sustainable eating and social justice.
Her post next week will be about “eating as a political act”. Get excited!
Please pray for a special intention. And if you’ve seen #5, no I am not pregnant. It actually has nothing to do with me, but if you could pray for it, I would be ever so grateful.
Have you seen Ravelry?
I signed up last fall and forgot about it. How stupid. Then I remembered how great it is, and I am back to crocheting like a crazy woman.
I am going to make an awesome teal toddler hat, a mustard yellow slouchy hat for myself, and bunch of things for the many, many babies in my life.
Crocheting is such a great stress reliever. Do you have a go-to stress reliever?
WOAH! I just saw what was here….and it was not what I posted. What I posted was a picture of a man sitting on a subway train wearing an outfit made entirely of crochet. Do not know what happened; sorry about that friends!
Hope you all have a great weekend! Go see Jen for more quick takes!
