Quick Takes vol #37

  1. New trick for dealing with my increasingly picky eater; load up her high-chair tray, give her a sp-ork and walk away (aka do something else in the kitchen). Apparently when no-one is prompting her to eat and she is allowed feed herself as messily as she would like she is hungry.
  2. Yummy beef stew for dinner last night; definitely stew & soup season!
  3. Want it to stop raining
  4. Fun with pronouns: After being chased a few times during which someone probably said something to the effect of "Gonna get you", Elisabeth now shouts while running "Gonna get me"
  5. Now that she has a growing understanding of the concept HOT, have been offering sips of my drinks; so far warm apple cider and chai. She seemed to enjoy both and I bet she might enjoy hot chocolate with plenty of whipped cream of course.
  6. Have ordered and received photo cards- now the dilemma: Christmas Letter or no?? Opinions welcomed!
  7. Plans for the weekend: Yard-work (if the rain ever stops) and grading

  1. Fully agree about the rain!

    We've been having lots of soup, lately, too. So comforting...

    I love Christmas letters, but they can be tedious to write. Do one if you can work it in, but don't stress about it. That's my opinion! :)

  2. I love to hear how people are doing, especially when friends are separated by several states. =) But I say it's up to you: if writing a letter will be fun and make you feel accomplished and connected and all, then go for it. If it will add to a pile of holiday stress, skip it. Above all, don't feel you owe any card or letter or whatever to anyone: do what you can and do what you enjoy. =)

  3. One item on my 101 in 1001 list is to send a Christmas letter. Now that it's time, I have NO idea what I would write.

    Dear friends and family,
    Just read the blog.
