Have a great weekend!
Read posts from lovely lady bloggers at Conversion Diary!
I haven’t been writing or posting.
I do have a few excuses that you might like…
For now, let me share some books I’m reading right now.
That’s really it right now.
Links go to my affiate shop on Amazon. If you want to buy the books, go for it.
Also, I highly suggest buying The Jesuit Guide. It’s intense. And full. I got it at the library and will be buying a copy myself.
Because I haven’t done this in a while.
Here’s what I’m reading right now. As we speak, The Collar is on my desk at work, actually.
So far, everything is SO GOOD.
The Food and Feasts is by some protestants, and I think they’re missing a lot of the symbolism of Catholicism in there, but it works. It’s very interesting anyway.
Peace! God Bless.
I am so far behind in reading the Catechism, you wouldn’t believe it.
I still get the emails everyday, but since they switched to the YouCat, I started reading from my copy of the Catechism. I’m on the Second Commandment… the scheduled readings are at the Seventh Commandment. Oh boy.
1. Use the weekend.
2. Read in the bathroom.
3. Read before bed.
I just kind of assume that everyone reads something before bed because I’ve just always done it.
If you don’t have books next to your bed, I highly insist you do this. It’s so much nicer to fall asleep with a book in front of your face as apposed to your phone or the TV.
Seriously, just read a few graphs. It helps you relax, and helps your eyes tire out while your mind slows down and your body relaxes.
Anyway, don’t try to force yourself to stay awake. Just read until you missed a word. Then stop. It’s OK.
Do it again the next night. You’ll be up to the calendar in no time.
4. Read while you wait for…
5. Slow down.

Where have I been?
writing, reading, book club, baking, finding a new apartment (not finding a new apartment yet), running, finishing C25K, running a 5K, training for a 4-mile run in August, watching, growing, planting, weeding, on the lake… it’s been busy.
I’ve been doing summer like I’ve always wanted to do summer. I’m the tannest I’ve been since I was a kid because I’m spending so much time out side – weeding the garden, reading, working.
I like it. I like being outside. I like being in the garden, I like dirt under my nails.
It’s been great so far.
I have also been trying to get back into writing some fiction.
I was going to submit to a competition last month… and I didn’t. I just couldn’t get around to doing a final edit after I had my boss read it.
I’ve been busy in the good sense of the word.
I don’t think I’ve mentioned this on here, but I’ve started a tumblr blog for all my fitness/running/health stuff.
I am by no means a super-fit or healthy person. I have a huge sweet tooth and I love peanut butter M&Ms. It happens.
If you’re into twitter and not so important ramble, check me out at jaderuns.tumblr.com. Or don’t. I’ll be OK.
Mostly it’s just to keep me accountable.
I want to make sure I’m running and doing the things I want to do.
I’m moving at the end of the month… still haven’t found a place, but I’m set on leaving where I’m currently at.
This will keep me away from the blog for a while yet still.
I just don’t consider this my priority.
After the move, my budget priorities are a new bed then a new computer… but I might have to suck it up and get a (new used) car first.
so a computer may be way in the future.
I just don’t have a lot of time to write blog posts at work.
And really, I just want to write and research for my posts at home with good coffee. 🙂
Pajamas not vital but good.
In other news Pope John Paul II is becoming (is?) a saint! wooooohooo! too awesome.
maybe this is important, I have been at my current news writing job for a year and three days today (Friday).
This is less important, I am going to buy a swimsuit and go swimming in my lake soon.
This month. There. I said it, I’m accountable for that. It should happen.
Here’s a photo.
To be honest, I edited this photo… there was a guy on a jetski in the middle.
Have a great weekend!
Make sure to check out everyone else’s posts at Conversion Diary! They actually post regularly, unlike me.
I just realized it’s a month to the day since I last posted. My apologies!
