7 Quick Takes

  1. Despite the lingering virus, it has been a wonderful week full of cuddles, picture books, and snowflakes. That and Veggie Tales videos. Not a bad way to spend a cold week with colds.
  2. I love blogging. The primary goal is to keep a record of our children's growth and our family's adventures. It is only recently that I have realized that I also depend on the blog as a connection to the outside world. I have never made friends easily; staying home has made it even harder in many ways. I cherish the connection with other SAHMoms that I have built over the internet.

  3. With that in mind, I am resolved to write more consistently. As much as the artificiality bothers me, I have instituted an editorial calendar to keep myself on track. Expect a post like this very Friday, Unplugged and Montessori posts on Monday, a book post on Tuesdays, a preschool "how-to" on Wednesdays, and a snippet from our lives on Thursday.

  4. You ever wonder what Google thinks of you? Type your name, plus the word "is" into the Google search box. See what pops up for popular search terms. Here are my results.

    **** is:
    • a guy
    • male
    • a trap
    • pregant on neighbours
    • still with hef

    My name is not very common, so it shouldn't surprise me that so many people wonder about the gender. But the pregnancy thing? Very weird.

  5. I try to use one new recipe every week. This week I am making my own pierogies using this recipe. Other than the carb overload, doesn't it sound delish?

  6. Naptime is coming to an end, and - alas - blogging must too. I leave with our now ritual art gallery snapshot.
