What I am learning this week:
- When you plan a big party, remember to double-check to see if your mother-in-law’s invitation got sent. (I am in the process of making this right.)
- Little people listen more than we realize. When I asked my children today during American History, “What do you remember about Deism?” I didn’t expect eight-year-old Gianny to be the one itching to answer: “It’s the belief that God set the world in order and then went away until judgment.”
- Drones are cool and come in two main styles: quadracopter and hexacopter. People who get to review drones online are very cool. People that blow things up using household materials are possibly even cooler. And, I was just informed that the King of Random just flew a drone online for the first time. That’s cool colliding with awesome. (This information was generously handed to me by my 13-year-old, who offered me the pleasure of watching a 7 minute drone video. I am a blank slate when it comes to knowledge of drones, so I learned a lot.)
- Gardens eventually die. Looking out the window this morning, I saw the bittersweet view of a frosty garden. I mourned my basil and zinnias for about five seconds and then was grateful I wouldn’t have to battle the tomato slugs anymore. I gathered what I could. Photos attached.
- The last peach in the bowl is always the most precious and sought after. I could divide it into 12 tiny slices….or just eat it myself after everyone is in bed. 🙂
