7 Quick Takes Friday


1. My Thanksgiving was small and nice. I used much of my mother's silver for the first time. *That* felt weird but it was rewarding to be able to use it for my small family. I kept expecting one covered silver dish to be filled with sour kraut. Its a good thing it wasn't because no one would have eaten it!

2. I think I'm mostly over my flu. I still am very aware of the need to rest, though.

3. We are boarding the dog today in preparation for going to my bil's and sil's tomorrow. I always miss her when she's boarding at the vets. She got throughly spoiled yesterday at Thanksgiving.

4. I may put out the Advent stuff today. We'll see how I feel and how motivated I am. I don't think I'll be up to it after travelling on Sunday, and, I have *lots* of Advent stuff, so I figured I'd better start it today.

5. Won't be meeting ds's new gf this weekend. A change of plans necessitated ds going to Pittsburgh instead of her coming to visit him. But we will be meeting her eventually, I'm sure.

6. I'm growing my hair out. It's in that in between stage where it won't do anything by itself, which is the only way I will get my hair to do anything at all. I still haven't really decided what the ultimate hair style goal is either.

7. It is beautiful and sunny out which is a wonderful change. I'm going to have to make a point to get outside. I haven't really been outside much at all since I've had the flu. Wow, that's a bit anti-climactic, isn't it?!

1. Mine was small and peaceful. Very nice. Sounds like you went all out with the silver!

2. I am so glad you are feeling better. I have prayed so hard and worried a little too (mostly turned it over to prayer though).

3. Sweetie will be just fine at the vets. She'll appreciate you more when she gets back home -- once she gets over the grudge she will hold. Rascal was spoiled yesterday too -- but just because; no boarding for him at this time.

4. I hope you feel well enough to at least put out a little Advent stuff. I know coming back home to it will make you feel good.

5. I didn't know there was a new gf. How'd I miss that?

6. Me too. It can be frustrating. Yesterday I used my husbands Pert shampoo and my hair actually cooperated!

7. Getting outside is a very good idea. I suppose it doesn't count if you are running from you car to the next appointment? I need to get out there and absorb the wonderful sunshine.

1. Life is short. Use your silver. Wear your pearls.

2. Symptoms are mostly gone except for fatigue.

3. Dh said that Sweetie was cooperative but sad. We'll be glad to get her back.

4. I did put up most of my Advent stuff including my mom's Manger scene on my mantel. Its nice to see it up there.

5. They haven't been together that long, lol!

6. I'm using the generic form of humecresss at the moment.

7. Well, night is falling and i didn't really get outside today. Tomorrow is another day.

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
