The last four days I have had various blog post ideas running through my mind. While walking Lucy around, trying to coax her into sleep, I think about all that I want to blog about. I seem to be in a real writing mood lately, but hardly can find the time to sit down and do it. Now I have Lucy down for a nap but can’t really figure out where to begin, or what to write. Instead of some planned out post, I will share my weekend.
It has been relaxing. Friday I checked a bunch of books out from the library and have been able to do a lot of reading. One of the books I checked out was Dr. Sears’ The Baby Sleep Book. Yesterday while Russ played with Lucy I was able to read the chapter on napping. There were some really useful tips that I later put into use. I actually managed to get Lucy down for a three hour nap, which must be some sort of record around these parts. I laid beside her for about half of that time and started reading Nina Planck’s book, Real Foods: What to Eat and Why. I am only 100 or so pages into it, but I already highly recommend reading it. It is packed so full of information on the effects that our industrialized food system has on our bodies and the benefits of consuming things like raw milk and fresh and locally grown meat and produce. It really is a page turner.
The remainder of our weekend has been spent playing with Lucy and enjoying the nice cool (well, cool for August in San Diego) weather. Last night Russ and I were able to enjoy a meal together for the first time since I can remember. It ended up being around 8:30 PM, but it was so nice to be able to eat and have a conversation that wasn’t about getting Lucy to bed. It has been a really great weekend, I hope yours was as well.
