Quick Takes (11)

The veggie garden is doing well this year.  And as I write this, I realized I forgot to turn the hose on.  It won't be doing well for long if it doesn't get water!  It's not a big garden, but we have a nice variety of plants.

I think I mentioned the Goodreads website once before.  On the explore tab, they have drawings for books.  I just won my 14th!  I certainly have a lot of reading to do.  I've won mostly fiction and am looking forward to checking out new authors.

A friend recently started his own blog.  I've know Michael for over twenty years and we've seen each other go through a lot of life changes.  He's a talented writer with a funny sense of humor.  If you're looking for something very different from the Catholic/infertility/faith blog scene, check him out.

Who knows about your blogs?  Have you told family or friends about them?  Only DH and one friend, who also deals with IF, knows about it.  I struggle with wanting to share it and keeping it my thing.  How did you decide whom to tell?

I was looking for something in the basement a couple of weeks ago and came upon this lovely lady - my first baby doll.  I think she's so ugly she's cute.  Notice the missing hair.  Apparently I found the hair pretty tasty and often ate it as a baby.  Mom had proof positive that's what was happening when she changed my diaper!

The mulch still isn't done.  Will it ever be???  Where, oh where, are the mulch fairies?

Have a great weekend!


  1. I haven't told anyone in real life I'm blogging, and I pretty much hope they don't find out! I find it's scary enough putting myself out there on the internet, without the pressure of worrying what my friends and family will think about what I write.

    Love that Chesterton quote - thanks!


  2. Love the quote by Chesterton and like Maya, I haven't told anyone about my blog except my hubbie. I'm thinking about telling my sister. She is probably the only one who would understand....The veggies look great- yum!
