Some random thoughts for your Thursday:
1. I think it is a privilege to be able to teach my little one things I don't want to be forgotten. She has no idea why we put up the flag yesterday, but she clapped at it blowing in the wind and someday I'll teach her why we take a minute to remember the people who died on September 11. I hope her generation doesn't have a similar "where were you when" moment.
2. Apparently Amelia has a "friend" who is a biter. And a darn good one. You know the boo boo hurts when she doesn't even try to get the band-aid off. Given that a different "friend" is a scratcher, Amelia is looking pretty rough these days, poor thing.
3. I bought 22 pounds of peaches this past weekend. Fresh, local peaches are just about the best thing on the planet. I've been eating 2-3 peaches a day ever since I bought them and I still can't get enough. Though, seriously, there are probably still about 19 pounds left and I'm going to have to start getting creative about how to use them up. Has anyone tried peach fruit leather?
4. In case you didn't see it on my Facebook post, my friends over at Grain Crazy wrote a cookbook! Every time I go to their site I get inspiration on how to eat healthier. Check them out, and if you visit by the end of today you can still enter to win a copy of their cookbook here:
Have a great week!
