The house was cleaned today; of course, I am serving rice with dinner (this ALWAYS happens!). And I stepped on something that sliced a toe and now I am bleeding through band aids….
which made me think, should I go get this looked at? And then I was struck by how luxurious it even is that this is an option for me. It made me think of all the people of the world who don’t even have the option of medical care for a tiny little sliver of a cut and how lucky we are. I may be reading too much about Syria in the news and WW2 fiction.
which made me think how much I am enjoying a new mystery series with the main character of Inspector Gamache. Set in Quebec. I’m loving it.
which made me think of the amount of reading these kids get in a day (and why my voice is sore by bedtime). There’s a lot of read aloud happening these days (but Lily is volunteering to do with with the little people now so that is a great big joy!).
which brings me to the two kids in preschool three days a week. They are feeling the school days, for sure. When I pick them up they are flying high with excitement and then they crash. Their days are long and Emmy either naps and then struggles against bedtime or falls asleep while watching before dinner. Ollie cries because he is hungry and tired and overstimulated. But they love it. And they are sleeping and their colds are improving. And Benedryll at night is a good thing.
which brings me to my final random thought: cherry juice…or in my case dried cherries. Apparently cherries contain something that can aid in sleep. Like Benedryll aids in my sleep :-). So I am eating more dried cherries in my yogurt in the morning.
which brings me to a new recipe that flopped this morning. I tried a dutch baby, or baked pancake, for breakfast for the kids, and, well, it was a flop. We will have muffins or pancakes tomorrow and I will be redeemed. Everyone loves those!!
