7 Quick Takes Friday – Volume 79

7_quick_takes_sm1Summertime has arrived and I’ll be concentrating on two exciting new projects, as well as trying to finish the initial developmental edits on my upcoming novel, A Subtle Grace. Therefore, I’ll only be posting occasionally during the next two months.

But it’s Friday, so it’s time to connect with Jen at Conversion Diary for 7 Quick Takes Friday.

1. Beautiful Children’s Book
Where Did I Come From? is a beautiful new book by JoAnn Termini Pira, who not only wrote this wonderful children’s book, but also illustrated it.61wdgabaXYL._SX260_

2. Jersey Boys
To celebrate my mother-in-law’s birthday, I took her to see the stage musical “Jersey Boys” about the popular 60’s group, “The Four Seasons.” It was very entertaining, although I could have done without the bad language. It was non-stop singing, though, and the two and a half hours flew by. I highly recommend it (although it’s not appropriate for kids because of the mature themes and language.)

3. Violin For Sale
I’ve finally decided to sell my violin, which I began playing seven years ago. I enjoyed playing the violin, but could never find the necessary time to practice. This is a half-size child’s violin in pristine condition. It comes with neck guard, case and bow. If interested, email: ellengablehrkach(at)gmail.com.

5. Pro-Life Shirt
I like to “wear” my pro-life values and have no problem doing so. A few weeks ago, a woman I’ve never met before saw my shirt and immediately frowned and turned her back on me. Oh well. No one said promoting Gospel values would be easy.
