Peony’s seven quick takes



Pansy’s computer is broken and that’s why we haven’t been hearing from her. She is taking things day by day, and greatly appreciates your prayers.


This weekend, we’ll be celebrating the seventh anniversary of the blog! Any nominations for favorite posts from the past to reprint?


Look what I am having for a snack this afternoon:>
That’s Royal Rum coffee from the Mystic Monks and cookies from my oven, using a recipe I learned from my mom. Jealous yet?


In our eternal quest to Get It Together, Pansy and I are buddying up and using some of the suggestions in this book:

These ladies are Flylady’s mentors. The premise is to set up a sort of tickler file to keep track of cleaning routines and keep from getting sidetracked (something I’m very prone to.) In this book, they also have suggestions for getting kids involved in keeping up the house (one suggestion involves blaze-orange stickers and the possibility of docking points from siblings.)
So far, I’ve set up a little system of index cards to help me with meal planning. Pansy went straight to first principles and used her first batch of index cards to plan out daily prayers and devotions.


Oh, all right: Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe


Plug time! Check out Faith on the High Wire (and not just because Kathy links back to here.) I see she has a post up that mentions Pansy’s bishop….


Boy, did I feel smug reading the Washington Post after the March for Life: In the Metro section, Robert McCartney’s column began….

Iwent [sic] to the March for Life rally Friday on the Mall expecting to write about its irrelevance. Isn’t it quaint, I thought, that these abortion protesters show up each year on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, even though the decision still stands after 37 years.

Quaint? Quaint? You saw it first here in 2005:

(snarkily imitating a Washington Post writer) Imagine! After 32 years, there are still benighted souls out there who think abortion is… wrong! Doesn’t it remind you of those Japanese soldiers who fought in the jungles for 50 years after the peace treaty? It would be so… quaint, if it didn’t hit so close to home and if they weren’t messing up Monday’s traffic so. Good thing this was on the first page of the Metro section, even though this is an issue of national interest drawing protesters from around the country. And that praying thing, it’s just so creepy.
