Take 295

7 Quick Takes Friday 
--- 1 ---
You guys. Malta. I'll have to do a separate post over at my European world wide web home (CouchvonRot), but here's a little drool-worthy happiness:
--- 2 ---
I read the readings from the Bible before church this Sunday... You know, mostly for me since everything is in German... We read 1 John 4:7-10 and George responded...

Jesus is so nice. He changes my world.” 
--- 3 ---
Meanwhile, while I was gone in Malta, Brian called to tell me that Jesus (George) was in our coffee table (an old chest) and Mary (Rowan) was watching over him. These are serious small wins for me in the catechesis realm. hah. I want to work harder at catechesis, but I'll take any win I can get!

Do you ever "Fine [Your] Friend" on the Apple App and find your friend drowning in water? Maybe it's all the canals and water in Hamburg, but I regularly "Find Brian" and worry that I've "Found my drowning friend".
--- 5 ---
Do you share your "Activity" rings with anyone for your Apple Watch? I've enjoyed this, but I have to say that the sarcastic/negative/competitive responses always annoy me... You click, "Reply" when your friend finishes a workout and it suggests responses like, "That's all you got?" Thanks, friends, for never responding with that particular one to me! haha. 

Because YES. That IS all I've got. Thankyouverymuch.

You know what the saddest thing is? Ok, maybe not THE SADDEST, but dang if spirea bushes trimmed into squares isn't the worst idea. Ever. Look at how beautiful they are when they aren't trimmed! Floating confetti! Swoon!

This week was a big week at work--I did some major events management planning and I'm very happy to have that event behind us! Three cheers for blogging with popcorn and Paw Patrol with my team Couch! ... Yes. on a couch.

Happy Friday!
