back sleeping discussion

An interesting discussion on baby sleeping patterns the other day at Pansy and Peony. (They are linking to a discussion on another blog.) Pansy’s response: I never, ever, ever had a baby who slept on their back. Ever. I hate sleeping on my back. I feel like I’m suffocating, hence why I am up at […]

More on Madeleine L’Engle

Dom pointed me to a blog that linked to my earlier posts on Michael O’Brien back in July. Enbrethiliel says that she agrees with O’Brien’s evaluation of Madeliene L’Engle: I’m going to be a contrarian now and side with O’Brien, but not on the (surprisingly well-argued) charge of neo-paganism—even though I have good reason to. […]

more bang for your buck

A treasure I found today at �Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam�: The government recently calculated the cost of raising a child from birth to 18 and came up with $160,140.00 for a middle income family. Talk about price shock! That doesn’t even touch college tuition. But $160,140.00 isn’t so bad if you break it down. It […]

Commandments for Kids

From Dumb Ox Academy, a very funny post: Of the beasts of the field, and of the fishes of the sea, and of all foods that are acceptable in my sight you may eat, but not in the living room. Of the hoofed animals, broiled or ground into burgers, you may eat, but not in […]

how I got my blog name

Curiously enough, I haven’t ever written on this subject. But I came across a blog, Chelsea Morning, that is collecting stories. What a fun project! Wish I’d thought of it first. She’s asking people to write up an entry on their blog and then post a link on hers. So anyway, The Wine Dark Sea […]

more from the farmer’s market

Went to the farmer’s market again today. Fall harvest time is truly upon us. One booth was selling peaches. They had samples sliced on beautiful blue and white china plates. Nice presentation. I tried one and knew I had to buy some peaches. “Try these, they’re awesome,” I told Dom. “Now that’s what a peach […]

Isabella: sleep and bath

Since the last time I posted on her sleep patterns, Isabella has consistently slept through the night! She typically goes out between 10 and midnight and sleeps until somewhere between 5 and 6:30. So she’s getting somewhere between five and eight hours most nights. I’m loving the predictability and the extra sleep. Tonight I gave […]

Daughter of Time

I just finished reading The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey. Thanks to Julie D. at Happy Catholic for the recommend. (Her excerpt got me so hooked, I tabbed over to a new page and ordered it from the library right away.) A fun mystery novel, a real page turner. Unusual in that the hero, […]

Beginning of the End

This is how it begins: a speck of red on the driveway. What is That? It can’t be leaves turning already? But it is. The first falling leaves of autumn. Summer is almost over. Goodbye long days, sandals, shorts, swimsuit. I feel like we hardly saw each other this year.
