Quick Takes Vol. #77

  1. Happy Feast of the Annunciation: I don't believe it is known what time of day the Angel Gabriel visited Mary with the news of her pregnancy, but in my case both times I discovered in the morning, and in the case of my pregnancy with Liam: after C. had left for work ~ at least for me it gives the day an interesting twist to have something that big that only you know.
  2. The start of solids foods is going well, once he came to understand the whole spoon concept. He has so far enjoyed avocado, squash, cereal with bananas, and currently pears; up next: green peas.
  3. My observance of Lent has not been going as I hoped with less time for reading, prayer and journaling; though it occurred to me that perhaps an important Lenten lesson is to learn to carry the cross how it is given to you ~ especially when not in a way of your choosing.
  4. Small vent: Sweden has apparently not gotten the memo about crib mattress fitting all toddler beds. The bed we got from IKEA is about a foot longer; luckily I had bought the mattress they suggested with the bed as we are moving Liam to the crib, but as I had already bought bedding elsewhere I didn't get bedding when we bought the bed ~ leaving us for a fews day (till I could get back to the store) with a bed with no bedding. Am I the last mom to know about this?
  5. I am happy to report that she has (mostly) successfully been sleeping in her new room now for almost a week. Still need re-arrange the furniture a little, but project New Toddler Room nearly done!
  6. Despite waking to flurries yesterday; with daffodils and forsythia blooming and tulips coming up it is starting to feel like spring around here.
  7. Plans for the weekend: Cleaning & adding to my 40 bags in 40 days goal, and a remembrance of family. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
