My camera is broken. It’s been broken for a while, but I only just figured out that there’s no fixing the blurry pictures. Good thing for my sister-in-law, huh?
I am trying my best to whip through Catholicism: A Journey to the Heart of the Faith, by Fr. Robert Barron, but I’m not having much success. That’s not because it’s not a terrific, fabulous, amazing book. In fact, I stand behind what I said the other day: it’s one of the best books I’ve read this year. So if you haven’t already put it on your to-read, to-buy, to-own-and-share list, do it!
All of a sudden, I’m seeing SANTAS in the store.
How can this be?
Christmas is MONTHS away, right?
And…isn’t ADVENT first?
Seeing as how I have a book designed to help you with your Advent, you would think I’d be prepared.
Especially since it’s newly available and I have some talks, interviews, and other Advent-preparation-themed things coming up in the next couple of weeks. You’d be WRONG.
I’m taking my own Advent advice from last year, especially as it relates to doing only one thing, not comparing myself to others, and smiling.
Pray More Novenas is a site after my own heart. You don’t have to rely on your RSS reader or even your ability to check the website: novenas can be delivered straight to your inbox. I hear rumor that there’s an app in the works too, and I am ALL OVER THAT, lemme tell ya!
I discovered this site last year, and though I don’t get the emails (inbox overload, anyone?), I have a good friend who has been praying along since I first mentioned it.
So there you go. Good stuff.
I shared this on Facebook and Twitter, but I nearly forgot to give myself credit for my “first” pie crust.
Apple filling, of course.
My mother-in-law did the work, and though I “helped” (especially with the eating part) and though she counts it as my first pie, I am itching to try my hand at this in my own kitchen.
(By “itching,” I mean “in a few weeks when I have to” and by “in my own kitchen” I mean to imply that I plan to have my mother-in-law standing nearby to rescue me!)
