- I felt certain, about ninety percent of the time, that I was supposed to be doing something important but couldn't remember what it was.
- The groundhog, apparently announcing his readiness for spring gardening to begin in earnest, showed up at the front door on Monday morning. I declined to invite him in.
- It is possible that April 12th, 2012 will go down in infamy as the day that my family ate approximately one billion snickerdoodles. Vegan and gluten-free, yet somehow, they were still awesome.
- This is wildly self-indulgent and completely lame, and I know it, but I got sucked into reading a bunch of my old blog posts last night after the kiddos were asleep. It was kind of like reading a forgotten diary that I'd stashed under the mattress or something. This one made me giggle. And, this seems like a lifetime ago, but is a total favorite. That student is in middle school now, but we still exchange occasional (and hilarious) emails.
- Zak started showing serious interest in eating real people food. So early! But his intentions are clear when he lunges at my plate during dinner and ends up with the edge of it shoved into his mouth.
- The lovely folks at Sparkle Stories (who live just up the road from me, actually) started offering trial subscriptions for only $1. If you aren't a Sparkle family already, you should totally become one. We especially love the Junkyard Tales and Martin and Sylvia stories. David and Lisabeth are incredibly talented and their stories are a great asset for the mindful parenting toolbox, let me tell you. If you want to try out Sparkle Stories, you can go to this page and enter the code SPARKLEFRIENDS to get the $1 deal.
- I don't know how many of you have already seen Heather's post about food and healing, but if you haven't read it yet, take a few minutes to do so. I guess it is no secret that I am spending a lot of time thinking about the family diet these days, so it was really interesting to read about a family that is farther along on the journey than we are right now. And comforting too.
