7 Quick Takes Friday


I'm a HUGE fan of Conversion Diary. I even have a post in the works all about how I think it's so awesome, and how Jennifer and I could totally be friends. Yes, it's shaping up to be a bit stalker-ish. Anyway, she does this "7 Quick Takes Friday" thing and today, I'm jumping in on the action.

1.) I'm going to a big garage sale tomorrow at a church across the street from us. I'm so excited about this for some reason. (Extra exciting because my friend is going too!) I heart any sort of sale where I get to peruse other peoples' junk.

2.) About ten minutes ago, I found a huge, nasty black spider crawling on me in our bed. I started screaming and, in my haste to get away from said spider, knocked two cups of water over on my nightstand.

3.) Yes, I always have to have a glass of water when I go to sleep at night. Sometimes I end up leaving it there...and bring a new glass the following night. Kevin finds this highly amusing, the fact that I'll end up with a cup collection in our bedroom.

4.) Our peach tree is going to have peaches this year, which I am SO excited about! It bears fruit every other year, so we had peaches in 2008, but not in 2009. Yum! (I REFUSE to let the squirrels take a bunch of them this time, though.)

5.) Yesterday we played with friends at a fountain and then got ice cream. SO fun. But why is it that within about five minutes of getting his, my five and half year old son dropped it on the ground? Not even a cone, but a CUP of ice cream! No worries though, he just grabbed the scoop, stuck it back in his cup, and ate it. I've apparently raised some hearty kids. (That, or they're desperate for ice cream.)

6.) I just cannot begin to understand how someone can sit and watch a 3+ hour basketball (or football...or baseball....) game. Kevin LOVES sports. I hate them. This is probably our biggest difference. He'll often tape the game if he can't watch it live, and then he'll periodically rewind and tell me I need to watch this or that play, because it's SO impressive. Um, actually, it all looks the same to me.

7.) Last night I was doing some laundry, and a yucky smell was coming out of some of our vents. Ew. It smelled like...and this is SO GROSS...the thrift store. (Ironic because I was JUST talking to someone yesterday about how our nearby thrift store is really stinky.) Anyway, now that smell is in my HOUSE. What in the world?! I HATE weird house smells, and our house is old, but it doesn't smell bad. Excuse me, it DIDN'T smell bad. NOW it smells like the Denver ARC. Ugh.

So there's my seven random thoughts for the day. Have a happy Friday! I love Fridays!

I am a strange woman who will watch football, baseball and hockey for hours on end, but I totally get where you are coming from because I can't shop for more than 30 minutes or everything looks the same to me....tough place to be :). Have a great week!

The water on the nightstand...my husband calls me Two-Waters Kathleen because I am doing the same thing! Thanks for sharing that quirk because now I know I share it with someone else. And I have experienced many a cup of water tipping over!

As far as watching ball games...now I watch my son play baseball for hours...and I must admit, I like it. (Which is good since I am doing it often.)

(BTW, I got to your blog via favorite blog jumping (my friend's favorite and then a favorite from one of their favorite. This was my first visit.)

God bless!!
