7 Quick Takes Friday

Thanks to my Mama for sending along these Advent Calendars this year:

I've never quite seen any like it... and I really loved it!

I have made no actual resolution to follow through...
someone on Facebook shared this link and I got a little excited.
So, I researched how to best clean my sink (which has a lot of hard water stains),
came up with this blog post,
This may look like other people's before posts, but for now, 
it's a step in the right direction for me. 
And, I know what my next step will be... an old toothbrush!
(And yes, I also worked on clearing our counters... It didn't stay perfect, but I made progress!)

Dear Facebook,
I realize that you've removed messenger from your app.
Maybe you could actually remove messenger from your app,
so that I stop seeing "We've moved!" with a hampster image every time
I accidentally go to the option on your menu bar.
And no. I won't download your stupid extra app. Thankyouverymuch.

George discovered this week that I can snort like a pig.
He's way beyond delighted.
Did you know I was this cool, internet?
He now occasionally looks at me and breaths heavily through his nose,
hoping I'll make a show of my amazing talents.

Do you ever run into this? We have songs at church that are written in 4/4 time, but when written, are written such that they mimic another time signature like 3/4?
I very much don't understand why you wouldn't just write that song in 3/4.

People, we have beautiful snow here.
But actually, more than that... we have biting cold temperatures.
Yesterday, I discovered that the defrost function is useless when it's -4 degrees out.
That windshield, when warmer than the air, will melt the snow and then freeze immediately, ruining your view of the road. It's better to stay cold. Crazy.

Brian and I watched The Hundred Foot Journey this week and I had more fun than I've had watching a movie in a long time. Highly recommend it.

Happy Weekend to you!


  1. Love it! Thanks for an updte on life. Love the counters! My favorite thing is clean counters! I need a cabinet for my growing appliance collection. Haha

  2. LOVED hundred foot journey too! Happy New Year!

  3. LOVED hundred foot journey too! Happy New Year. I enjoyed taking all my Christmas decorations down and starting the year with a fresh, clean house. It's of course only temporary, but I'm enjoying the break from the impending clutter...😊
