ONE: Religious Freedom is something that I treasure. This week I blogged about the HHS Mandate and also about the Religious Freedom Rally that Catherine and I attended. I do feel that this is an issue that all Americans should be concerned about--it isn't just a Catholic issue.
TWO: I recently started a crochet project using crochet thread--which is a first for me. The scarf is turning out to be quite lovely--if I do say so myself. However, it is taking so long! I actually began a baby blanket (with a thicker thread and bigger hook, of course) to feel like I was making progress on something. I guess that I am just too impatient.
THREE: Catherine has developed this adorable habit of "Cheers!" I have no idea where she picked it up, but now whenever she is drinking and she spots someone else with a cup she goes over and clinks glasses. It is so cute!
FOUR: I need to cull through my inbox. There are quite a few messages piling up that "need attention".
FIVE: Lent is almost over!
SIX: One of the "learning time" activities that I do with Catherine every day is to go through a couple stacks of flashcards. She is doing an excellent job of recognizing the pictures; when I ask her to find a particular one she generally is able to point it out. One of the sets that I got at the consignment sale is all insects--which she seems to like, but I actually find some of them kind of icky! (Can you say cockroach? Or earwig? Or silverfish?) Oh well, I guess if she likes bugs and such then she can be the one to get rid of them for me when she's a little older . . .
SEVEN: I really am enjoying having a blog. I am learning as I go--but I AM learning! My little blog hit a big-for-me milestone this week. I passed 10,000 page views (according to blogger). Another cool milestone is that one of my crafty posts was featured on another blog!
PS: In other bloggy news, my first ever giveaway will be ending on April 2nd--so you should sign up if you haven't already! ;-)
