7 Quick Takes Friday

--- 1 ---
I will like to start of with great news.  My little baby girl is now crawling! She is 9 months old and gets herself around the house.  Now I just have to keep the floors immaculate.

My husband started off with a bad cold this week and it looks like my oldest daughter is now heading that way.  This cold calls for my mama's recipe, caldo de camaron (shrimp soup).  My husband loves it and my daughter likes shrimp.  It is delicious and great for fighting a cold.  I will post the recipe on a later date.

I went to my sewing class this week.  I was the only student but it was the best class ever.  It was a one on one class and my instructor showed me all her tricks.  Here is my project (pillow).  Not bad for a beginner.

My mother let me borrow her sewing machine so I can practice but I eventually have to get my own. Her sewing machine is an older Singer but I do not like it.  I have been asking a few people and searching the internet for the best sewing machine in my budget.  I think I want to go with a Viking.  If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

I have had the worst migraine this week.  My husband thinks it is because of the heat or a sinus infection, either way, I am ready for this migraine to be over.  I think I need to finally go see a doctor about these headaches.  Maybe it is something I am eating or doing to myself and do not even realize it.

This past Sunday at Mass they handed out a LIGHTHOUSE Catholic Media CD-THE YEAR OF FAITH and Father suggested we listed to a new CD each week during the Year of Faith to help us learn and deepen our faith.  What a great idea!  I really like Lighthouse Catholic Media CDs.  They always have new CDs with great speakers at an affordable cost.  If your parish does not provide Lighthouse Catholic Media CDs, you should tell them about it.  It is a great ministry.

I really did not want to start off with the election but I guess I will end with it.  All I can say is God sometimes does not answer our prayer how we would expect him to.  He know what is better for us and our nation.  Our job is to stay faithful.  As Blessed Mother Teresa once said,“God doesn’t ask that we succeed in everything, but that we are faithful." We must remain humble and continue to pray.

Have a great weekend everyone!  Thank you for stopping by.
