Sunday Snippets

Sunday SnippetsIt’s time again for Sunday Snippets, that weekly linkup of Catholic Bloggers from across the web hosted by RAnn of This, That, and the Other Thing.  Sadly, this is the last week for Sunday Snippets but I hope to find some new linkups to join.
Things were pretty busy on the block this week!  I started off the week with a new graveyard post.
I shared some old but still popular posts this week too, of particular interest to Catholic readers. This one was for St. Patrick’s Day.
This one was in honor of St. Joseph.
Do you think fear might be ruining childhood?  I do, and I wrote a post about that.
I participated in the #1000Speak campaign, writing about bullying.
Finally, I shared the exciting news that my daughter had a story published in an online literary journal!
Thanks for visiting!  Please check out the other participants in the linkup.  You might find a new blog to enjoy!

Thanks for joining me for Sunday Snippets, a weekly roundup of posts by Catholic authors from around the web, hosted by RAnn.  If any of you would care to join in, please visit the link for instructions.
Partly because of snow days and partly because I’ve been away for the weekend, I’ve been able to write every other day this week.  Here’s what I’ve been up to:
I started off the week with my latest graveyard post, this one about a small family burial ground in the Smoky Mountains.
Next, I wrote a little tribute to Leonard Nimoy on the event of his death.
Finally, I wrote about lessons I learned from watching The Godfather.
I hope you like what you read and want to come back for more.  Please check out the other blogs at the link above.

Sunday Snippets

Welcome to Sunday Snippets, a roundup of Catholic bloggers from around the web hosted by RAnn of This, That, and the Other Thing.
My content is not explicitly Catholic this week (unless, of course, you consider celebrating the beauty of God’s Creation to be Catholic!), but at least I do have some content!  Being snowed in all week helped.
So, first up I did a roundup post about all the places my daughter and I walked in the fall that I had not gotten around to writing about yet!
Next, I wrote about our big success in finishing up 42 miles of trails in the South Knoxville Urban Wilderness.
Finally, I shared some of the places we have been walking since then.
That’s a lot of writing about walking in a week in which I have barely set foot off my porch.  I hope that you enjoy them and that they inspire you to get out there to do some walking yourself as soon as it’s safe to do so.  Happy Sunday and please check out the other blogs in the linkup!

Sunday Snippets

Since I actually wrote a few posts this week, I’m linking up with Sunday Snippets, RAnn‘s link up of Catholic bloggers from around the web.  Here’s what I published:
I started off with some tips for increasing followers and engagement on Twitter.
Next, I continued my series on my family’s experience with Obamacare.
Finally, I posted a long-overdue cemetery story.
I hope you enjoy my posts, and that you will give the other bloggers a look as well.

Sunday Snippets

I’m back for the first time in awhile with Sunday Snippets, RAnn’s delightful gathering of Catholic bloggers around the web.
Like many of you, I’m sure, I’ve spent a lot of time tweeting this week, sharing #whywemarch posts, rather than writing, but I did manage to get a couple of posts up!
First, this quick preview of Spring
Then, a book review (and by a Catholic author, at that!)
I’d also like to share a couple of timely old posts that I resurrected in honor of the events of this week.
Was Martin Luther King Pro-Life?
Not This Woman’s Issue
I’d love to hear what you think!  And be sure to check out the others in the linkup!

Sunday Snippets: A Catholic Carnival

I fell off the NaBloPoMo wagon in a big way, even failing to participate in my usual linkups.  So I missed Sunday Snippets last week, and will make up for it by listing two weeks’ worth of posts this week.
Sunday Snippets is a gathering of Catholic bloggers sharing their posts with each other and with their readers.  Please check my posts for anything you may have missed, and visit RAnn’s blog for the rest of the links!
First up is another post in my South Knoxville Urban Wilderness Hiking series.
Next I wrote about starting to write letters again!
Then I did a post about a very disturbing trend in assisted reproductive technology.
I wrote about a great new online shopping find.
Then I wrote about the May/Murray Cemetery.
Last night I wrote about a strenuous hike in Mead’s Quarry.
This afternoon I posted another short cemetery story.
And finally, I just added a picture to the My Sunday Photo linkup.
Thanks for reading!

Sunday Snippets: A Catholic Carnival

I’m linking up with RAnn of This, That, and the Other Thing for Sunday Snippets, that weekly famous gathering of Catholic Bloggers sharing their week’s posts.  This week there is no question of the week to answer (and yes, RAnn, I DO miss it!) so it’s straight on to the recap:
It’s the first full week of NaBloPoMo, and I’ve done pretty well–I did miss one day this week.
I led off the week with this post  about the elections. (Yes, I voted!)
Next I posted a little homeschooling update.
I wrote about another cemetery.
And because what I wrote upset some people, I wrote about it some more.
Then I wrote about another cemetery.
Finally, I participated in a weekly photo linkup.
I hope you will take a look at any you may have missed this week, and that you will check out the other linkup participants.
 
 
 
 
 

Sunday Snippets: A Catholic Carnival

Hello, and welcome to Sunday Snippets–A Catholic Carnival. We are a group of Catholic bloggers who gather weekly at This, That, and the Other Thing to share our best posts with each other.
Question of the week:  Who is your favorite saint?
Hard, hard question!  But I’ll go with St. Peter.  Why?  Because he was a gloriously imperfect human being who God used to accomplish amazing things.  Peter is constantly making mistakes but he has faith in abundance and that is the rock on which Jesus built the Church.  Peter is a reminder to all of us that as long as we have faith God can use us to further His will.
Posts for last week:
I started off with a piece on a local African-American cemetery and the importance of names.
I wrote a brief post to announce my intention of participating in NaBloPoMo, which means that my Sunday Snippets posts will have at least seven snippets throughout the month of November!
I linked up with My Sunday Photo.
Coming up this week:  more graveyards, more autumn walks, and perhaps a little something on voting . . . and who knows what else?  Thanks for reading!

Sunday Snippets: A Catholic Carnival

Maybe I should say Monday Snippets since I’m only just now getting around to writing it, but that doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, does it?  Anyway, it’s a weekly linkup of a group of Catholic bloggers hosted by RAnn, and even though lately my content is more catholic than Catholic, I like to join in!
Question of the Week:  Do you have any suggestions regarding the Rosary? Books? Audios? Ways to pray it?
All Saints 5
 
There is a Rosary prayer garden on the grounds of All Saints Church, where Lorelei and I go to Mass every Wednesday morning.  I haven’t said the Rosary there, but it’s a thought, especially since she and I will be studying all twenty mysteries later this year.
morning garden
As you might notice above, there’s no rosary shortage around here!  I’d like to be that person who says it every day, but so far I have failed at all my attempts at formal prayer.
Anyway, on to the posts for this week!
Last Sunday I participated in the My Sunday Photo link up.
Then I wrote a post about last Saturday’s walk in the Urban Wilderness.
I ended with another graveyard post.  And there are many more to come whenever I find the time.
Thanks for reading, and check out the other bloggers in the link up above.
 
 

Sunday Snippets: A Catholic Carnival

It’s been a lovely day and a busy Sunday which is not over yet, but I’m taking a few moments to link up with RAnn for Sunday snippets, a weekly gathering of Catholic bloggers sharing their week’s posts.
Question of the Week:  Have you ever tried the Liturgy of the Hours (Divine Office)?  Why or why not, and, if so, is it something you pray regularly? 
No, I have not.  I don’t have any kind of formal prayer routine, which is something I would like to remedy at some point.  If there is one things I would wish it is that I could be more holy. Sigh.
Now for the round up:
I was out of town from Tuesday night until Friday night, visiting my sister in Dallas, and despite good intentions I did not write a word while I was there.  I did, however, post a few things at the beginning of the week, which I hope you will enjoy!
A post about what’s going on in my garden right now.
Two photo posts, for new linkups I am participating in:  Silent Sunday and My Sunday Photo.
Thanks for reading!
