Heaven, I'm in Heaven...

Good Monday Morning to all!

Watching: Season 1 of 24 on DVD, a b-day present from H. One benefit to missing a show for awhile: one episode a night vs. having to wait for a specific day, once a week, all season. Go Jack Bauer!

Actual in-theater movies have gone out the window since the birth of the little guy. Go figure!

Reading: Currently between books, but recently finished The Ivy Chronicles by Karen Quinn. Anxiously awaiting the next book in the Weather Warden series by Rachel Caine.

Favorite Web Site of the Week: Andrea Scher's Superhero Designs. I have bought her jewelry and t-shirts, and have enjoyed her journnal/blog immensely, having lurked there for years. Andrea has written quite poignantly about her struggles with infertility, and has recently shared exciting news with her readers. (She also takes wonderful photos!)

Enjoying: Found while making a quick dash through CVS this weekend... dark chocolate miniature Reese's. Yummy!

New Name

So, the new name of this blog comes courtesy of my 80+ years old Grandma Marguerite. We visited family in Wisconsin at the end of April/early May, and got to introduce the baby to his Great Grandma. I was fussing over something or other that he was trying to put into his mouth, when Grandma rolled a German phrase off her tongue... something I can't really remember hearing in all these years. "It means 'dirt makes fat'," she smiled. Sort of the German version of eating a little dirt never hurt anybody... Something I'm trying to remember as I roll with this new stay-at-home-motherhood. Less fussing, more fun!

I'm going to have to ask her again about the origin of the phrase: "That's where the bear went in the buckwheat..."

Building me an Ark

I will have to hunt down the actual rainfall count, but yes it is raining again here in New England... The ground is saturated, and baby and I are starting to climb the walls as badly as when it was 16 degrees outside. On the bright side, it is supposed to clear tomorrow. Maybe.
