7 Quick Takes Friday: Quickly

Check out the collection of other 7 Quick Takes Friday posts, hosted at Jennifer Fulwiler’s blog, Conversion Diary


Classes started this week. I’m exhausted.


Thus, this.



I’m restarting The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan. Because I thought The Lord of the Rings was too long, so the concept of like 13 books, and another dozen or so prequels isn’t daunting at all.

I have discovered a love of chicken and dumplings. I’m sure I was exposed to this delectable food when I was a kid, and just thought it looked like cat vomit or something and rejected it for the next 40-something years.

Oh, how I wish I had come up with a better comparison….


I am making an effort to drink more water. I’m mostly successful, thanks to a fancy schmancy grown-up sippy cup.

Took my lunch to work all week and congratulated myself for being a good girl. Celebrated with a Snickers candy bar.


I’ve decided to dust off my 35 mm camera and go back to taking fun pictures. It’s a shame to let all those lenses and filters and cool gadgets sit in a bag, unused. I wonder if I can remember how to load film?

  1. Hey! I have one of those fancy sippy cups too! I considered it my first line of defense against the unknown water supply in Papua New Guinea. Now it’s for removing that ucky chlorine taste. I have to admit, some days I’d like to return to the simplistic life when sippy cups ruled.

Hi! Wanna say something? Go ahead. Be nice.
