7 quick takes

I'm on Season 4 of Lost.  I am additcted to this show now, though I'm not liking this season as much.  But for all those people who love Lost, I dedicate this song to you.  I have not been able to get it out of my head.

New post at Virtuous Planet! This one is on Halloween. I know the holiday is still a few weeks away, but I wanted to give us all time to think about it and share ideas. I'm specifically asking readers to share how the keep the holiday in thier own home and if they have any great saint costumes. Come join the fun!

We are having a heat wave and I don't know if I like it. What about you? I want jeans and cardigans but instead the kids and I are all wearing shorts again. This is October - I want it cool!

 But maybe I should just shut up because Travis told me he heard some hard news about this winter from Brian Williams. Supposedly, the weathermen are suggesting that the Chicago area will have the coldest and hardest winter in the country. We're supposed to get double our normal amount of snow. Fortunately I live 3 hours south of Chicago, but I'm still thinking we may have a few more snow days this year.

So there's no time like now to start praying for perfect weather for the Behold Conference. Eek!

Okay, it's time to stop blogging.  My house needs to be vacuumed.

  1. Keep going with LOST, it's worth it. Thanks for the song (didn't even have to click on it, I was instantly transported to the hatch when I saw it) -- now it'll be stuck in my head too LOL! :)

    I commented on tour weather in my quick takes today too ;) http://littlebitsandpeaces.blogspot.com/

  2. I heard about the predicted horrible winter also...good thing I will be on maternity leave this winter!! Clark and I will stay inside the house nice and warm :)

  3. Your comment about Winter made me cry :'(

  4. I just looked up our weather for this winter and we're right on the edge of that "Worst of Winter" line. I guess if we get a White Christmas I won't complain too much.

    And I should be doing laundry! :)

  5. This has nothing to do with quick takes...but have you ever tried noisetrade.com? Free,legal music- mostly from indie artists trying to get their music out there. I tell you now because the Civil Wars (am I remembering that you like them too, or is it just Cynthia?) have a free live album up right now. Give it a try!
