This is my first "7 Quick Takes Friday".
I am working to change my life of "sloth" one baby step at a time. I don't have children, and there really is no excuse for the state of my house, mind & soul. ;o)
For the house, I have rejoined Flylady. This will help with my "flight plan" for getting my house under control while (gasp!!) learning to become more organized. I might even learn to make a list or two and not lose said list....we'll see. There could be hope for this SHE who was not BO yet. (for definitions of those acronyms, you need to visit her website) ;o)
For my mind, I will begin reading books written by the saints. Well, OK I admit to starting quite a few, but I never seem to finish since I would rather read good Christian fiction...oops! Because of this I will work on *finishing* and applying the knowledge gained in said book to expand my mind, which could help my soul too. ;o)
For my soul, we plan to continue making frequent pilgrimages to the Shrine of the Divine Mercy. I will add daily reading of the Bible and praying the Rosary. I already am completely faithful to the Chaplet of Divine Mercy (one good habit gained over the past year....thanks Mom!!). I have also been listening to Fr. Corapi on CD to and from work. He sure does make the time pass quickly, and I feed my soul at the same time.
I had a peaceful week at work; my manager was on vacation, and my projects are humming along nicely. I should be finished with them by Sept 3rd, which is my last day of work--hopefully for a long time.
It's hard to believe that summer in winding down here in the NE and fall is right around the corner. Thankfully, it is still warm, but other than at night the AC isn't on as much. I'm looking forward to all the fairs (Big E is the BEST!!) and other fall "stuff".
One last thought....I sure hope I start meeting more wonderful Catholic ladies through blogging. I don't think I write much of anything worth repeating, but it is fun to share thoughts and laughs with "like-minded" people. Gosh, does that read like one of those "ads" in the free paper? LOL!!!
Happy Friday to anyone who may wander over here. Please say "hi". I'm looking forward to meeting you. God Bless!
