Quick Takes Friday

I have slacked a lot on updating this blog (not a great start to the New Year!), but I did manage to write a new post this week: The Hermit's Guide to Working Out.

I realized something odd the other day: whenever I pray the glorious mysteries of the rosary, I envision them taking place at my undergrad college campus. Weird huh? I guess it was college that I really started praying the rosary, so it sort of makes sense.

I had to chuckle when I saw this trailer at the movies last week. I won't lie: I might see it. 

My daughter has given up naps at 8 months old!  You would think that without napping she would want to go to bed earlier than 9:00 but not so, not so.

I have been trying to get into the book The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but I am not feeling it. So far there isn't a single girl character in it— tattooed or not— and I find myself snoozing through the detailed explanations of Swedish corporate maneuverings. Tell me there is light at the end of the tunnel or this puppy is going straight back to the library.

Anyone in the DC area heading to the March for Life? My brother (who is a religious brother in the Dominican order) is coming into town for the march with a group of students.

Brrr! Is winter over yet? On that note, I'll leave you with a warm and fuzzy picture:
Have a great weekend!


  1. That is possibly the cutest picture I've ever seen! Love it!!

  2. I think I'll netflix Cowboys and Aliens, too.
