Day 7: Printing and Laminating

Today's grateful feelings are brought to you by HP and Scotch. The brand, not the drink.

I rarely have ink in my printer, and when I do I want to print ALL the things. Today, those things were a couple of printables from Kendra at I chose the spiritual and corporal works of mercy, and put them in cheap frames by my kitchen sink. I thought they were fitting for the Year of Mercy!

Then I printed wallet(ish) sized copies of her Anima Christi and Memorare prayers and laminated them. I'm not much of a New Year's Resolution type of person, but I do want to memorize these two beautiful prayers this year, so I made the cards to stick in my purse, van, and any other random place I can think of. I'm pretty excited, since I rarely follow through on ideas like this.

One thing that helped was the Scotch brand laminator I got as an Amazon deal of the day last year for $17. I love it more than it is appropriate to love office equipment. 

So my three-part thankfulness today is that I have ink, laminating sleeves, and a husband home to buy me some "free" time!

Here are the links to the blog for Catholic All Year, and her Etsy shop, and Instagram. Because she's probably my favorite blogger and she's so talented!

Seven Random Things I Like

It's been a while, so I'm going to link up with Kelly at This Ain't The Lyceum  for 7 Quick Takes today! I present to you seven random things I like, and for which I am grateful today.

1. Lent! Time to repent! I do like Lent, and with a weird rib-area cartilage injury and a bad cold to set the pace, it's shaping up to be a really Lenty Lent. I'm using the Blessed is She Lenten journal for my daily prayer time and am trying...t r y i n g this 5-Minute sacrifice. I did fairly well at it Wednesday, and pretty crappy Thursday. So there you go. Onward and upward.

I will embarrassingly admit that it took me until my 35th year to realize that I don't have to read all the things on the interwebs, even if they are about a topic of interest to me. The webs are awash with posts about how to Lent, and but thank goodness I resisted the urge to click on all of them and just licked on this one by Jenny at Mama Needs Coffee. Of course you know I want to share everything she w…

I Am A Blogger: CWBN 2017 Recap

The last weekend in March I had the great pleasure of attending a real life blogging conference! Like a real blogger!
JacquiAnna and Susanna hosted the Catholic Women's Blogging Network Twin Cities get together at a stunning Summit Avenue mansion in St. Paul. Thirty-some wonderful Catholic women from the Twin Cities, the Midwest, and even Maryland joined up to talk blogging and really just to support each other and build each other up.

My friend Monica encouraged me to go, and I signed up on a bit of a whim, figuring that if I paid for registration I'd be more inclined to go. If I didn't have a mutual friend link to one of the organizers, and if a couple of my most favoritest bloggers hadn't been speakers, I'd probably have chickened out. 
In response to my evident nerves on the way, my husband wisely mused, "Well, if you're going to walk into a group of people you don't know, this is probably the best group you could pick." Catholic. Women. Fro…

Week 4: What's Saving Me Now

Inspired by this Modern Mrs. Darcy post, I thought I'd do a 7 Quick Takes: What's Saving Me Now edition (linking up with Kelly (hilarious today, BTW) because I like to pretend I'm a real blogger). I needed a reminder to stop seeing everything that's annoying, or angering, or just plain crappy, and see some good in my life, of which there is plenty. So without further ado:

My Out of Control Center from a few weeks back is standing strong! There's a big mess of stuff I need to go through hiding under my planner, but I've mostly been able to keep the island cluttered with only appropriate items like a zillion water cups, bagel crumbs and sticky spoons. In an apartment with a house's worth of stuff, the small victories matter! Read Aloud Revival book lists (found here). I'm loving the Read Aloud Revival podcast and book lists right now. They have boosted my enthusiasm for reading to the kids. I printed the annual calendar to mark off days we read aloud at l…
