Coffee Time

by | Apr 21, 2008 | Quizzes | 4 comments

Aaahhh, peace, at last!! I finally have a little computer time. I’m sitting here with a deliciously warm cup of coffee, on this snowy April day, sorting through and organizing my digital photos while the kids play with Lincoln Logs and Tea sets in their rooms.

I seriously can’t believe how many photos I have taken since we bought our first digital camera. I do love having the benefits that digital photography provides, but one draw back, at least for me, is that I never seem to get the pictures developed!!! It’s horrible! I think I have had maybe a couple dozens pictures printed since Oct 2005! Maybe I should set a goal… Sort and develop one months worth of photos each week?? What do you think? What do you do?

It is so fun looking through these older pictures. Such wonderful memories! I can’t believe how much the kids have grown!

Anyhow, back to my coffee… The other day when I was waisting time over at Blogthings I got to hear just “what my latte says” about me… Thought now would be a good time to share:

What Your Latte Says About You

You are interested in only pure and simple pleasures. You don’t like to pollute your body or mind.

You can be quite silly at times, but you know when to buckle down and be serious.

You have a good deal of energy, but you pace yourself. You never burn out too fast.

You’re totally addicted to caffeine… but you like to pretend like you aren’t!

You are responsible, mature, and truly an adult. You’re occasionally playful, but you find it hard to be carefree.

You are sophisticated and daring, but you are never snobby.

Yep, that’s right… Gotta pace myself on dealing with the photos… And, Yes, I am addicted to coffee, even though I don’t like to admit it! Off to get another cup! 🙂

    Wow, your latte says a lot about you! I love what it says….no wonder we get along! Sophisticated but not snobby is perfect 😉

    I haven’t had a real photo printed in years!!! I am soooo guilty of this! I need to do the sanpfish website to help with my problem. I hear it is a great site, cheap to!

    Oh, I so hear ya!! We got our first digital camera for Christmas 2002, and we’ve taken close to 20,000 pictures. Is that nuts or what?

    We finally got scared of losing them all when our Kodak software got infected with a virus (happily, nothing was lost), and…got an external hard drive.

    That’s right; instead of printing or transferring to CD/DVD and deleting, we got more storage. I think it’s a sickness. I still want to get them off the computer, but it’ll take me the rest of the year, at least, to organize and transfer all of them.

    But I love the photos just the same!

    Oh my goodness, I so hear ya…just for this April Showers thing I’ve taken more than 1000 photos! In half a month!!!

    Granted tons of them are useless as I am really (really!) trying to figure out all the settings on my camera, but still! What in the world to do with all those photos?

    Oh, my dh brought home an external hard drive too, Eileen.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
