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: 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

Good Sunday evening and welcome to Sunday Snippets, a weekly linkup hosted by RAnn in which Catholic bloggers answer a weekly question and share their posts.  Y’all, if you haven’t been reading me for long I promise I really do qualify as a “Catholic blogger.”  For one thing, I’m a Catholic, first and foremost, which informs EVERYTHING I do, including blogging. 🙂  But also, even though lately my posts tend more towards health and exercise, if you look back you’ll find plenty of religious content.
Question of the Week:  Tell us what you like best about your parish.
My parish is Immaculate Conception, the oldest parish in East Tennessee.  The parish is 159 years old and we celebrated the 125th anniversary of the current church building just a few years back.

My family has been part of this parish for almost 70 years.  My parents were married here, as we were; I was baptized here, as were four of our five children; and all our children celebrated their First Communions here.  So what I like best would be my historical connection to the parish, and next would just be the way I feel when I am there:  Nowhere else do I feel as comfortable and at home.
Now for this week’s post.  Yes, once again, only one!
This week I reviewed The Relationship Project in my capacity as an Off-the-Shelf blogger for Beacon Hill Press.  I have a lot of extra commitments this week, but I also have a number of post ideas, so we’ll see what happens!
