7 Quick Takes Friday


Happy Friday, everyone! I’m joining Jennifer again in her 7 Quick Takes…


I’m over at 5 Minutes for Faith today talking about friendship and what it’s meant to me lately. Stop by if you have a minute!


Julie Carr had a post this week I just had to share. We’ve all heard about moms (or maybe you’re one of them) whose kids have colored on walls, furniture, or other “creative” places. Stop by Julie’s site and find out what happened this week when her house got suddenly quiet…
Speaking of quiet houses, I learned a long time ago that silence when the kids are home is NEVER a good thing (unless they’re sleeping). One time, my kids had friends over and things got mysteriously quiet. I looked around, trying to find the kids, and eventually did…in the pantry, huddled together on the floor, eating handfuls of chocolate chips. :)

On a more “business-y” note, I’ve mentioned before that I subscribe to ProBlogger. Darren posted some great thoughts this week from Andrew Rondeau about how to build credibility. Not only does it apply to blogging and writing, but I think it also applies to many other areas of life. Worth a read!

A quick note about comments: I love hearing from you. And I love being able to send a note back or pop by your site after you comment when I can. But–for some of you–I’m unable to do that because your profile is unavailable. I’m no techie, but I think if you go to your profile and choose to show your email and share your profile, access is enabled so others can stop by from the comments screen.

And about the weather: It got hot in California this week! I mean HOT. I know I might seem like a wimp because we don’t have humidity here, but I’m already finding myself thinking about the pumpkin patch and cooler weather, and maybe even some rain. Is it just me, or is anyone else already looking forward to the fall?

To end things on a perky note, I saw a post over at Pocketful of Bliss that inspired me. In fact, if I didn’t have a knee brace on, I think I would’ve run outside and done a cartwheel myself. Head on over there and have a look. Then go find something fun to do that makes you shout, “I’ve still got it!”

Make it a great weekend, everyone. Hope to see you back here for Mom-Monday. I’ll be having a giveaway you won’t want to miss!

Talk soon,
