7 Quick Takes: The Dodgers Are Losers Edition

7 Quick Takes

— 1 —

Seriously perfect. I was looking for Dodger GIFS for this post and came across this one…

Dodgers suck!

I consider this proof that God loves me and wants me to be happy. 😀

My horrible sportsmanship. Someone on Facebook called me out for my Dodgers-hating and told me I was a horrible sport. My response:

Duh!

Because I am Hermione, yo! I’ve been invited to join my school’s chapter of Phi Theta Kappa because I’ve been pulling a 4.0 for the last 4 quarters. I may or may not have fist-pumped when I got the email.

I’m dying. Talk about going out on top!

I cannot stop laughing.

All Soul’s Day. I thought I’d share this from The Episcopal Church’s Facebook page. (I recommend following them for the pictures coupled with prayers or Scripture they post twice a day.)

Because Loreena McKennitt. I’ve seen her perform this twice in concert.

Some more Loreena McKennitt. One thing she does well is set poetry to music. I used her version of “The Lady of Shalott” (Lord Alfred Tennyson) to memorize the last part of it for my 8th grade accelerated English class in 1994 and she is known for putting Shakespeare to music.

I especially love her version of “The Highwayman” by Alfred Noyes. It’s too bad she released it 4 years after my brother had to memorize part of it!

31 Days of My World As It Is Sung: What Sounds Fun to Me Right Now

31 Days of My World As It Is Sung

I’m having concentration issues tonight so I’m borrowing a prompt from this list.

What sounds fun to you right now

My definition of fun is different from a lot of people but…

  • Singing the Messiah with a ton of people
  • Going snorkeling
  • Going boating on the Sound
  • Singing just about anything with my church choir
  • A games night with friends
  • Doing homework with some of my classmates
  • 31 Days of My World As It Is Sung: The Simple Woman’s Daybook for October 29, 2017

    For Today…

    Simple Woman's Daybook

    Looking out my window… dark. It started out quite foggy this morning and it eventually burned off in the afternoon.

    I am thinking… about my coffee date with a classmate to do work tomorrow.

    I am thankful… for typos in the bulletin that lead to mirth during worship.

    One of my favorite things… sleep.

    I am wearing… jammies. Church this morning was my turquoise/black/white bokeh print dress, black cardigan, black camisole, black tights, and black flats. After that, it was a long-sleeved blue-green shirt and jeans.

    I am creating… folders, quick steps, and tasks in Outlook.

    I am reading listening to… various things online.

    I am hoping… I get stuff done in a timely fashion this week.

    I am learning… various things in Outlook.

    In my kitchen… pot roast, carrots, multi-colored potatoes, and salad for dinner.

    In the school room… I had a great time with Daniel on his class field trip to the pumpkin patch last week.

    A moment from my day… Our anthem from this morning.

    31 Days of My World As It Is Sung: Hurriedly Coming Up with Quick Takes!

    7 Quick Takes

    Tell me again about how the 50’s were awesome. Guess what? They weren’t if you were a housewife (or really a woman in general).

    — 2 —

    I love this. A phone number has been created for women to give to creepy men who come on to them. Seriously, I wish someone had come up with this when I was in college.

    A reading list. Laurel Muff did a fabulous job of compiling her favorite books about saints for Blessed is She. I may be adding a few of those to my TBR pile.

    — 4 —

    Interesting. This is thought-provoking. (It also reminds me that I need a haircut.)

    — 5 —

    Claudia Fragapane. One of the things I do when I’m having insomnia is watch YouTube videos and gymnastics is a favorite. The British have a surprisingly good team and Claudia is one of them. She’s the current World Championships bronze medalist on Floor Exercise.

    Halloween. Daniel’s school does a pajama day on Halloween (some of the kids can’t afford costumes but almost everyone has pajamas) and I honestly don’t really feel like dragging him to a couple houses on the cul-de-sac to trick-or-treat. I know… slacker mom!

    — 7 —

    My theme song. Maybe I should see if I could get this as my new cell phone number? 😀 (Just kidding — I also spell mine as “Jenni” not “Jenny”.)
