Re: Basically it's the weekend!

Seriously, don't be embarrassed. The books are "classics" here, but I highly doubt they are in Europe. Basically memoirs of a pioneer girl. There was a TV show back in the '80's with Michael Landon as the father. Your girls might think it was fun if you read stories to them at night.

Re: Basically it's the weekend!

One caveat about the Little House books....they are at times pretty racist. For Native Americans they say things like “red-brown skinned,” “snake eyed,” “smelly,” and “wild” men. Also that is indians dont know how to use the land so it is good that the farmers are doing it instead. Also refers to African Americans as "darkies"
It is a contextual thing. If MH wants to read them we will read them but have a time and place discussion about them.

I slept in and I still feel really tired. For goodness sakes. I am marking away. Ru has gone back to bed and E is doing some art with new supplies that he got for his birthday.

It is evident that Ru is not up to groceries today. I really dislike doing groceries, but off I go!

I hope Ru is feeling better too. I had no idea she'd been exposed that often

Nap time is lovely!

We had more snow but it was warmer today (0C) so it didn't make much difference.

I love making massive batches of soup. I freeze them for emergency dinners. And everyone here loves soup so they are always thrilled when it turns out to be a soup day.

Shopping done! There weren't too too many people, which was good. Now everything is home and unpacked, and we (E and I) are having pirogies for supper. Ru isn't eating, obviously.

I am looking forward to a big piece of chocolate cake when I am done eating. Then I need to do a bit of planning for the week. All my marking is done, thank goodness.

I have no freezer room Janine so I can really freeze a lot of leftovers. We will eat it for dinner tomorrow night and then I will pack some lunch portions for me and if there is still more I will send it out to MIL
