• Took a quick vacation. Pictures to come.
  • A tummy bug has been making the rounds.
  • Reading lots. (The Passion of Dolssa by Julie Berry: highly recommended!)
  • First yard work Saturday of the season. Red Chief is learning to mow. We cleared out the worst third of the garden (weeds already running rampant). Planting to come.
  • All the flowering trees in the neighborhood are blooming. 
  • Paper airplanes. Everywhere.
  • Tiger Lily sewed a doll pillow.
  • A big pot of minestrone soup and fresh French bread.
  • Playing Beethoven's 5th Symphony and Mendelssohn's Hebrides Overture with my community orchestra.


  1. Can I ask you an unrelated question? A woman on Facebook says there are no pro-breastfeeding pediatrician in your home state. Has that been your experience, bc I simply don't believe it.

    1. I have not found that to be the case. :)

  3. SO sorry about the bug.. Hope you all are feeling better.
    Busy around here too.. Trying to get the garden ready to plant and prepare for Easter dinner for kids.
    Have a blessed week.

  4. Ohhhh, minestone soup...Can I get that recipe? That is Ben's favorite. I would love to make that for him for Fathers day.
