Take 309

7 Quick Takes Friday 
--- 1 ---
"It's the most wonderful time of the year! [in Germany]":

Bier season is upon us! Maybe this is the year we'll actually observe the season and I'll buy a dress? Who knows.

Face painting at school is one of the all time favorites... It's not exactly my favorite because whatever paint they use... it's oil based or something and it gets. on. everything. I went to pick-up Rowan one day and she was covered in pink--her face, her clothes--everything. So, with a bit of an eyeroll, I asked her what she was... (Lion, butterfly, etc)... 

"PINK!!!" she declared loudly, with all her might.
Truth. She was a blob of pink. (And I just know this was her idea!)

And she couldn't have been happier.

I came across this pan in Lidl today... I was very tempted to buy it. I didn't. But I photographed it. It's kind of genius. 
It's divided.

George and I had a nice discussion about eating meat on the way to school this week. "Chickens have meat!" Yes, George, they do. That's the part we eat. They have bones, but we don't eat those. "I have meat, too!" he says, pointing to his arm muscles. "Well, actually, George, we call that muscle, because we don't eat people." 

I stand corrected. You're meat.

Yes. I just looked up the plural of T-Rex. And yes. It's T-Rex.

My husband commented that it's ridiculous (because of my tidy self), but I did finish reading "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up". I know I'm years behind the pop-culture (per my usual), but it was a short audio book and I enjoyed listening to it. 

And yes, as an obsessively OCD person who is constantly battling her home, I loved it.

But I don't talk to my house. Or thank my inanimate objects for serving me. And really, there's no way I'm wiping dry all of the shampoo bottles in my shower each day and storing them in the cabinet.

But yes, I look forward to decreasing paper clutter in my home and might go through another season of "Capsule Wardrobing". I'll keep you posted.

We had an overly exciting weekend last week with two social events and work on Saturday... I ended up getting sick and that progressed into a sinus infection. So yes, today is my day off. I've kept it simple with a long nap in the middle of the day and it has been so refreshing. I wish you the same recharge for your weekend, too!

Happy Friday!


  1. Meat is Murder!!...but murder is also murder. hahaha

  2. Want to take any guesses where my copy of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up is? hahaha. Yes I know where it is. I no the author would not approve!

    1. hahahaha! Well... I didn't even buy it--I just listened to it!
