My View, vol. 1: All the Birthday Cake

It’s been so long since I posted, but I had an interesting week, for once. 🙂

What I am reading: “Life of St. Teresa of Avila.” I wanted to finish it by her feast day on the 15th, but that didn’t happen. I’m also rereading “The Stand” by Stephen King. I started reading Stephen King in 5th grade (yes, I was that kid) I think my mom was kind of worried for a while, but those books are the first ones I remember staying up late to finish because I just had to know how they ended. Magic, really. It’s been about 10 years since I read this particular book and so far, it’s living up to my memories of how awesome it is/was.

What I am eating: Cake. All the birthday cake.

This week in history: I celebrated my 25th birthday on Sunday! I even got to spend the day with my family in my hometown, thanks to the kindness of a friend.

Prayers: For my little sister. For a friend’s job situation. For my job situation!

Next week I am going to: Crochet a pillow. Work on my knitting skills. Finish all my half-read books. Plan out some blog posts!

Linky love:
“There are reasons why ravens are creepy when they don’t even speak English. They’ve reached their famed position out of unusual intelligence and a grim diet. Ravens are attracted to a carcass for food, and are known to investigate gunshots during hunting seasons….”

This virtual Carmelite choir video has already made the rounds of the internet, but Teresa of Avila is my favorite saint, her feast day was last week, and I do what I want. 🙂


But really.

Have a lovely week!
