QOTD: My girl, Frances the badger

December 6th, 2010

Frances (from “A Birthday for Frances”): “That is how it is, Alice. Your birthday is always the one that is not now.”

i love my blog and y’all. what’s up??????????

December 5th, 2010

here’s what is going on this weekend, and it’s all good:

1) since i’m taking a break from classes for, oh, the foreseeable future, I have some free time.

2) we bought PacMan Party and Just Dance 2 for the Wii and omg — we’re all four having so much fun. Especially with the old arcade games (PacMan, Galaga, Dig Dug). Our sweet little neighbor kid was over — he and Wacky Girl danced like mad to “Proud Mary” and it was so fun. “Soooooooooooo fun,” as my son would say.

3) Last night the four of us played Apples to Apples and it’s our new favorite family game (besides Wii). We giggled and just hung out.

4) Today I’m making Black Bean Soup, Asian Noodle Salad, and cornbread, three of our old favorites. (Corn Casserole actually sounds better, but plain cornbread with honey and butter will be more kid-friendly.)

5) i’m trying so so soooooooooooooo hard to not bake Christmas cookies and it is killing me. (just fyi.) (Edited on Tuesday to say: I don’t have to bake ’em — BlogHer is doing it for me. Ha.)




QOTD: Wendell Berry + Simon & Garfunkel

December 3rd, 2010

“…to defend and conserve oneself as a human being in the fullest, truest sense, one must defend and conserve many others and much else. What would be the hope of being personally whole in a dis-membered society, or personally healthy in a land scalped, scraped, eroded, and poisoned, or personally free in a land entirely controlled by the government, or personally enlightened in an age illuminated only by TV?” — Wendell Berry

and, one of my late father’s favorite songs:

“…once my heart was filled with the love of a girl/
I held her close, but she faded in the night/
Like a poem I meant to write/
And the leaves that are green turn to brown…”

Everybody out there, i hope you have a great weekend.
