Tuesday

Coconut macaroons I made today for a Hockey Fights Hunger event. (The cookies were only used to fight the hunger of the participants; a canned food drive was the plan for fighting hunger in our community.)

Every time Abbott encounters an unfamiliar word, he finds out the meaning, and then I hear him use it in a sentence of his own before the day is over. Not a day goes by without my being inspired by him.

My (ten year old) niece ended her Christmas wish list with, 'PLEASE, nothing sparkly'. I love her.

We - Alexi and I - need a better system for choosing movies. It often takes us, seemingly, as long to select something to watch as it does to watch it. Seen anything good lately?

Happy Tuesday to you.

Yum!! Can we have the recipe? By the way, I'm really enjoying your blog! I found you through habit (which I also love). Thanks!

It takes us forever to pick a movie, especially since we're always trying to stream through netflix. I thought "Exit Through the Giftshop" was pretty good, as was "Winter's Bone." And we've been watching old episodes of a BBC show called Coupling at night (I'm pretty sure Friends was based on Coupling). Hope that helps! Have a great Thanksgiving!!

Your coconut macaroons look so delicious I could eat a few for breakfast.

We just borrowed Sweetgrass from the library and enjoyed it. http://sweetgrassthemovie.com/

Thanks for the recommendations!

Karen: thank you. And I just added a link to the coconut macaroons. I actually use the version in Molly's book, A Homemade Life, but the blogged version is similar.

I have been scrolling down, catching up, Lecia. I love how your boys look like they are such good friends. Abbott inspires me, too.

We choose movies based on previews or movies we liked leading to other movies. It is hit or miss.

We both really liked The Adjustment Bureau, The Tourist (although I don't care for Angelina Jolie as an actress), and Love & Other Drugs

We just watched "Anthony Zimmer," a French romance-thriller with Sophie Marceau and Yvan Attal. It was suspenseful and beautiful.

Those look really yummy!

And the question of the day is which brilliant parent or teacher taught your son his vocabulary habit. I think that is genius!
