7QT: It does not include heavy amounts of mental or physical exertion.

Y’all came in like gangbusters and recc’d some great spiritual reading. I have a little list going here, but the rest of the books are:

  • Life of Christ by Fulton Sheen
  • The Book of Saints for Catholic Moms by Lisa Hendey
  • Anything by Fr Jacques Phillippe
  • The Fulfillment of All Desire by Ralph Martin
  • Thousand Gifts by Ann Voscamp


You’re sitting there thinking, “What am I going to do with my Memorial Day weekend?” You could finish your Call Her Happy Stitch-a-Long. Or pester your husband to just quickly install a patio. You know, real quick. No big deal. Just slap it down.



If you could spare a few prayers: a man tried to abduct a girl from the school down the street from our house. I’m all sick feeling about it. We live in such a nice town, but this stuff happens all over. This was a little too close for my comfort.


Mike and I are on a documentary kick right now. So far we have watched Inside the US Secret Service, Jig, and Mystery of a Masterpiece. I have always loved me some real life not-sucky reality viewing. So, if you’ve got any more ideas, keep them to yourself. But seriously…

I love Ashley’s post on this. She’s got a master list going here.


Ashley also has this amazing life list that inspired me to make my own. I’ve got one in the works, but apparently putting it into action isn’t part of my list. Here’s a hint though: It does not include heavy amounts of mental or physical exertion.


Today is yer last day to enter the Sew Mama Sew giveaway. Love this day. Love the giveaways.

    My favorite Catholic book is The Lord by Romano Guardini. The chapters were originally radio addresses, so each one is (1) accessible, (2) relatively short ~15pgs, and (3) somewhat stand-on-its-own so you can pick up and put down the book without losing a huge train of though.
