Seven Quick Takes Friday--vol.1

--1--
I find it ironic that my "quick takes" post will probably be my longest post so far!

I am still learning about all the wonderful advent traditions out there. Should I try to pick one or two to keep from being overwhelmed? Will I feel guilty if don't do all of them? I want to help my family prepare their hearts for Christmas without feeling stressed myself.

I love getting mail. Personal mail, not junk mail and bills, those are not fun or uplifting. My mother-in-law sends me a weekly letter. I look forward to checking the mail each Thursday. There it is! A manilla envelope with a letter for me written on the outside of a small white envelope. Inside my letter are coupons she thinks I might use. Plus the Sunday comics from her paper for the kids. Some weeks there will be other little surprises too.

I like bamboo knitting needles better than metal ones. The metal kind seem cold and loud. Bamboo feels soft and warm and quiet, just how knitting should be.

Fridays are good because it is the end of the school week and because the kids and I go to Mass on Fridays at the Church on the army base where my husband works. It is a 150 years old and my 5 year old Anna calls it the "real Catholic Church". It also means that Tony might sometimes be able to join us.

My guitar has sat almost completely untouched since we moved here. This needs to change.

Wow. That was easier than I thought! Thanks Jen for hosting!
