7 Quick Takes Friday

1. Anyone want to guess what fast food establishment this menu belongs to?Daddy Buffalo treated us to ice cream from there one night this week. I could go there 2 or 3 times a week, but we actually 1-2 times a month. Mmmm....

2. My sweet little tomato seedlings are looking great! It's a good thing we don't have any pets, because I have loved those things like pets... lugging them around the country-side with me, making sure they get plenty of water & sunshine. I've transplanted them out of their little jiffy start-pots into cups and they've really taken off! I hope to get them out into the 'real' garden within a couple of weeks, along with squash seeds. I also hope to have a more detailed Garden Club Friday post soon, hopefully with lots more to show & tell! (To see other Garden Club Friday posts click the button above, or go

3. We've been walking in the woods again.
Alan likes to hold Dale's hand. Dale lets him.
That's not our dog in front of Dale's right shoulder... it's the neighbor's/landlord's. There are 4 of them. (Dogs, that is.) They like to go walking with us.
You don't see
many any wildlife critters while walking in the woods with 4 big dogs.

4. April is
National Donate Life month. More than 100,000 Americans are waiting for a life-changing (and usually life-saving) organ transplant. Over 1,800 of those are children. Please consider becoming a donor, and be sure to let your family know of your wishes to donate. Lives like Alan's are saved.

5. If you homeschool, or if you like doing extra stuff with your kids, or if you love children's literature, or if you like freebies (and who doesn't, right?) then you might be interested in this website:
Homeschool Freebie of the Day
A new freebie available for download every weekday, and a bonus 6th free download each week if you are on the mailing list. You never know what's going to come up from Freebie of the Day!

6. Whew. Coming up with 7 things is really hard. I have a hard enough time coming up with a topic a day for any blog post!!

7. Have you seen this video? Heard about this woman? Most likely so, considering it has been viewed over 22 million times. But just in case you haven't, you must. go. watch. It is absolutely amazing.
