Hello, and welcome to Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival. We are a group of Catholic bloggers who gather weekly to share our best posts with each other. To participate, go to your blog and create a post titled Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival. In it, discuss and link to your posts for the week--whether they deal with theology, Catholic living or cute Catholic kids. I'm mostly a book blogger so my posts are generally book reviews, some Catholic, some not. Make sure that post links back here. Once you publish it, come back here and leave a link below.
We also have a yahoogroup; signing up for it will get you one weekly reminder to post. Click here to sign up.
Question of the week: Do you find these questions of the week to be interesting or useful? In other words, should we continue having them? My answer: I've gotten some interesting answers to some of the questions I've asked but the concept as a whole doesn't seem to have taken off like I'd hoped. In other words, I'm on the fence which is why I am asking you, the participants.
I've been off work all week so I've had time to read and blog. Actually I've done a lot more blogging than than reading. My foot is feeling better so I was able to take my youngest to Baton Rouge to Build A Bear. On the way home we toured a plantation home. Here are some pictures:
I hadn't planned to stop at the plantation so the only camera I had was on my old cheap phone.
What did I blog about this week? I was trying to get out of a blogging funk so I decided I was going to try to do a week's worth of memes or link-ups. I started on Thursday with Booking Through Thursday, in which I listed my best reads of the year. On Friday, I did Seven Quick Takes and I included a list of the Catholic books I'd read this year in that post. On Saturday, I tried a new (to me) meme, Saturday 9. This is Sunday's post. Monday, I'll join Shelia and the gang for It's Monday, What Are You Reading. Anybody have any favorites for Tuesday and Wednesday? Another thing I did was join some reading challenges. You can read about them here. Finally, I posted one book review. It is a book about prison life and while the main character is Catholic and her faith is important in the book, it isn't considered faith-based fiction.
