Bookclub Highlights

Our January book was Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver

I think all of us felt inspired by this book to bake more, cook more, taste more. Some of us even want to try our hands at canning and cheese making.

Zelda pointed out that the section on BSE (aka mad cow disease) could have been expanded -- the big scare is over, and this disease rarely makes the news any more, but the devastation is still continuing. She backed that up later, sending out e-mail linking to a really scary articles.

How did we end up discussing our children's underwear? I think it's funny that two of us have had the experience of folding the laundry and slowly realizing, "Hey! There really should be a lot more underwear in here!" That pales, though, next to having a child who rebels against undergarments altogether, and takes them off and hides them in the blink of an eye. Yes, it's fun to be a mother.

Overall, an enjoyable evening discussing a book we all were glad to have read.

Thanks, Vivian.

I have threatened the youngster that if he misses "it" again it will be mentioned on my blog. Let's see if he'll push me to that.

I tagged you. Come take a look!
