Seven Quick Takes - Vol. 2

This week has gone by so quickly.  I am out of town so this is a scheduled post so I am not able to link up but I wanted to do it anyway.  I was just over at Jennifer's blog Conversion Diary and she's on a break until June 21 so I doubt there is anything to link to anyway. 

I managed to escape the bird twice this week.  I was ready for him/her too.  I kept thinking it's just a it really going to land on me.  After I thought about it, probably it would have.  We had some a few years ago in our own yard and they would peck at the dog.  I remembered it right after I thought that it wouldn't really.

We are in Duluth for Grandma's 1/2 Marathon otherwise known as the Garry Bjorklunnd 1/2 Marathon.  I hope I finish. 
{And not look like I am dying.}

My kids are really into "running".  They like to go for a "run".  It's a 100 yard truck down the street.  BUT
They have a whipper snapper run this weekend.  It's a 100 yard dash for those under 7.  They get a little treat bag and a medal.  We will see if they want to do it.  Henry might get a little shy but if his "Kardee" runs it he might be okay.

My Grandpa is feeling better with his new medications.  He was retaining a lot of water.  I mean A LOT!  He took off 25 pounds!  Sadly his heart is working at 20% and when it gets to 15% he will be in real trouble.  I am very sad about this.  I hope to see him soon.

We watch Deadliest Catch on Tuesday nights.  This season has been bittersweet. 
We will miss Captain Phil.  Other than that we don't watch tv very much anymore.  We even get Netflix and the movies sit for a week or more.  Sometimes way more.  Probably should suspend that. 

My Bible in 180 days is going to take me a lot longer than 180 days.  I am currently 13-14 days behind.  I am not sure I will ever catch up but I am still trucking along. 

I am so tired I can't even think of another QT.  I really must shower and get to bed.  Tomorrow comes around as soon as I hit the pillow.  Except when it doesn't.  Here's something....remember when I said we don't watch that much tv?  Well, really we don't but there's a great commercial on right now from the inventor of Patagonia....I don't want to mess this up but I think the quote goes like this,

"You can't do something great, unless you do something"

Hope you have a great weekend!

PS.  Sorry, I didn't have any pictures today.
