7 Quick Takes Friday – Vol. 50

7_quick_takes_sm1As usual, Conversion Diary is hosting 7 Quick Takes Friday. Check out some of the other Catholic bloggers’ posts!

1. Loreena McKennitt
The most exciting news from last week is that my husband and I attended the Loreena McKennitt concert at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa (seventh row center) and we were fortunate to be able to get backstage passes to meet Loreena (thanks so much, Aynne and Carne). I’ve been a fan of hers for about eight years and I listen to her music while I’m writing. She is a wonderfully warm person and was kind enough to pose for a photo. You can read more about the concert here.Loreena

2. More Photos from Backstage at the NAC
Here are a few more photos backstage at the NAC; the first is a photo of Loreena’s dressing room:

3. Stealing Jenny Free
This Tuesday and Wednesday, December 11 and December 12, Stealing Jenny, my third novel, will be FREE on Kindle.

4. EWTN Bookmark Appearance
This past August while I was at the Catholic Marketing Network Trade Show in Dallas, Texas, I was interviewed (along with a group of other Catholic Writers Guild members) by Doug Keck for EWTN’s Bookmark. Some of these short interviews will air this Sunday at 9:30 a.m. You can watch via cable, live streaming on the internet or on satellite. Here’s the link: http://www.ewtn.com/bookmarkIMG_0366

5. Donkey Bells by Catherine Doherty
I recently posted a beautiful article by Catherine Doherty entitled “Donkey Bells.”

6. Blue Lights
This photo was taken last year after freezing rain turned our blue lights into blue icicles.

7. Carol of the Bells at ADHS (2009)
It’s Christmas time again, so I’d like to share this video of my husband and two of my sons performing “Christmas Eve at Sarajevo” or “Carol of the Bells” for the ADHS students and staff back in 2009.
