Quick Takes (18)

Happy 6th day of Christmas!  I am so grateful that the season lasts 12 days so I can still work on celebrating it properly. 

As I’m writing this I’m “plugged in” to my iPod listening to my all-time favorite Christmas tunes.  It saddens me that the radio stations stop playing them so soon.  But then again, they start playing them so early.

My patron saint for 2012 is Our Lady of Guadalupe.  I shouldn’t be surprised, considering how she’s figured prominently in my life, but I am.  Guess there’s no such thing as coincidences, huh?  Get your saint at Conversion Diary.

How are you bringing in the new year?  Do you do anything special?  We’ll be at home, spending it quietly together, most likely with a fire burning and a glass of wine.

I’m thinking of trying to do Project 365.   It  consists of taking one photo a day to document the year.  I’m not sure I have the persistence to do it consistently, but I’ll give it a try.  I’m going to create a separate blog for it, and maybe I’ll even convince Himself to post to it now and then.  After all, he is the real photographer in the house.

 Someone at work told me about this video.  I laughed until I cried.  So funny!

  1. I love that video!!!!! I found it right before my surgery last month and I kept playing it in the hospital. I think the nurses thought I was crazy, but it really helped to make me laugh and calm me down!! Love it!

  2. Merry Christmas! I picked a patron saint too ... I love your saint and can't wait to see her work in your life in the new year!
