These are a few of my favorite things...
Without much else to write about - a bit of writer's block, I guess - I thought I would let you know things I like so you might know a bit more about me. These are coming in no particular order but just as they fall out of my head....
In regards to my faith life - I really like www.catholicexchange.com. At times, I even have a piece there but I really like the other authors as well. I am becoming more of a fan of St. Francis de Sales. We are pleased to have their 'retirement' home nearby so our parish often has these marvelous priests as weekend help. I am a big fan of praying constantly and can be found mumbling intercessions for my children as I pair up their socks.
In my free time (what a phrase that is coming from a homeschooling mother of 11!), I like to read, watch movies and just be w/ my husband. (boy, do I sound like a personal ad, or what??!!).
I like to wear skirts most of time unless it is really cold - like it is right now - then I wear pants. I also like cardigan sweaters - something that really annoys my 14 yr. old daughter who will now not wear them because they are 'mom clothes'.
I like to cook but I am not great (I tend to dry out meats if I am not really careful). I love to bake but rarely make time to do anything more than cookies or quick breads.
But most importantly, I really, really like being a mom of a large family, Catholic and married to my husband. And beyond that, whatever I may like or not like those items are the most important.
