Things I have read and enjoyed: The Missing Year of Juan Salvatierra.
Things I have read and not enjoyed: pregnancy books. The tone see-saws between the apocalyptic and patronizing, and they don't seem to offer much beyond a catalog of everything that can go wrong. We checked a tall stack out of the library and didn't find a winner in the bunch. We'll just have to go the old-fashioned route and trust the doctor.
Things I have seen and liked: musical drawings and prints at the Cleveland Museum of Art; turquoise pebble earrings; patched jeans; recipes for beautiful and intimidatingly healthy food.
I am also laying plans to increase the number of overalls and rompers in my collection. They are very kind to expanding midsections.
