7 Quick Takes Friday (Vol 37)

1
We attended our third swimming carnival yesterday. Koala was magnificent as a timekeeper. I was so proud of our little girls. Jelly Bean managed to swim 25m of both backstroke and freestyle:) Princess competed in all four strokes; backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and freestyle and then she competed in the medley! All four again in a row! Our three boys swam their hardest, did their best and most importantly were good Sportsmen. As a lovely bonus all three won their Age Championships!!

Our Border Collie, Elowyn visited the Vet’s today requiring ear surgery.
PC went to collect her and was highly amused to be greeted at reception with, “Here’s Ellie’s Dad”

3
I’m re-reading “The Family Nobody Wanted by Helen Doss.” Written in the 1950s Helen and her husband adopted 12 children of ‘mixed race.’ So humorous and inspiring.

I received a black and white laser printer from PC for my birthday:)
We are all so impressed with the speed, cost great too. Only 2c a page!

5
I have lots of thoughts swirling through my head at present; theology, socialization and relationships are all clamouring for reflection and prayer.

6
I am drowning in clutter, I really, really am. However I know it would be more efficient if I wait until the cladding is completed in a few weeks and we have a massive re-organisation. But perhaps I’m wrong, perhaps I should tackle the problem now. What do you think?

7
I’m reflecting how special relationships with your teenage daughters can be:)
Mine is a delight.

    So glad your teenage dd is a delight – mine is too and I'm always sorry to hear of others who don't enjoy their dds.

    I'm a sort it out now 'cause it is driving me nuts person, but then that's why I moved so many piles of stuff during our 16 months of builders. Just think and live better with less clutter.

    Have a great week.

    I'm in the process of a massive de-clutter too. Right now I'm just trying to fill a bag at a time in no particular order, its all I can manage right now, and its GOT to be done!

    How lovely to hear from three new readers!! I've just been over to have a peek at your blogs too, new friends:) welcome{{}}

    RE the clutter, I probably am better to start some now so it won't be such a big job when we move the children in to the extensions.

    I have never heard of the book you metnioned in #3, but now I want to read it. As a child, I often said I wanted to adopt a child from every nation. At almost 40, I am preganant with my third now, and my son says he wants "sixty" babies, so I guess I better start thinking about adoption! 🙂

    "The Family Nobody Wanted " is my ALL TIME FAVORITE book! I first read it when I was 11 years old and have read it at least once a year for the last 27 years! My Husband and I adopted 2 little ones from India and I would love to adopt more if it weren't SO expensive. But if God calls, He will provide ( he did amazing things wit our India adoptio. We walk by Faith…
