We are still here

Deep in school. Deep in cold (you can hear things snapping; the main consolation is it's too cold to snow much). Deep in getting some other real-life small responsibilities ironed out.

Tonight's dinner: Wieners baked on a combination of baked beans, kidney beans, ketchup, molasses etc.; baked potatoes, salad, and you're on your own for dessert. Mama Squirrel was busy all afternoon making sense of the desolation formerly known as our school room/rec room.

Book most recently finished: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (borrowed from Grandpa Squirrel). Melissa Wiley had a whole discussion about this several months ago on her blog, and of course I missed it at the time, but you can still enjoy the comments. Not for kids (lots of horrors of war), but otherwise awesome--how could I not like a book revolving around Charles Lamb's Essays of Elia? If you liked 84, Charing Cross Road, you will like this, maybe even more.

Watching: Quantum Leap, Season One, with Mr. Fixit. Again not for kids (at least the couple of episodes we've watched so far), but enjoyable--I used to watch this show a lot when it was on, but it's been awhile.

Waiting: to see if The Apprentice gets her G-2 license tomorrow.

Of course she will.

There was a reason we videotaped her at six months playing car in a cardboard box.

(Good Luck!)
