7 Quick Takes...

This is my first time to link up with Jen at Conversion Diary!

I finished this amazing book last week:
My Sisters the Saints by Colleen Carroll Campbell

I cannot say enough good things about it.  It is absolutely beautiful and so real.  Campbell draws on the experiences of certain saints to help her through life's challenges.  It has a lesson for all in its depth, honesty and conviction.

We might be seeing a bit of this soon (with snow):

if we head to the cabin for a little R&R.

And we'll definitely see this in the next week:

It is calving season here, and lots of baby calves are on their way!  Life is about to get a little busy :)

We lost this guy:
Our dog Cocoa, who we got when Carter was just about a month old, has vanished.  He's been gone for about two weeks.  While I'm not the biggest animal person, I miss him.

--- 5 ---
Any of you NFPers out there heard of this drug: Lysteda?  I've been told that it serves to treat those with heavy/painful periods without the use of hormonal contraceptives.  May be a blessing!

Carter and I are planning to make these next week for our weekly baking venture!

I know I've mentioned this before, but I can't get enough of Brother Francis.  These little 25 minute animations are amazing!
