the weather report #4

rhythms of the moon the weather report

A Monday tradition where I share what I’m making, reading, learning about, listening to, and exploring this week.

  • In the blink-of-an-eye a baby goes from scooting across the floor like a drunken starfish, to figuring out how the knees work and how to alternate them successfully. Everyday I’m blown away by how incredible the human species is, but especially how brilliant my own little R is.

  • Years ago, my friend Kristen told me that she was rounding a corner at the grocery store and was confused when she saw a donkey standing in the isle. But not just any donkey- a seeing-eye donkey. Anyhow, I thought of that story when I came across this article about therapy cows.

  • I have a curiosity for all-things Japanese, and so am excited to make this recipe for Hokkaido Milk Bread. The insides look like a fluffy pillow and I’m intrigued.

  • I’m also trying to find an excuse to make these homemade Animal Crackers but I might be forced to make them without any special reason at all.

  • I’ve talked about the Clean Mama in other posts because her cleaning routine is so effective for those of us who hate cleaning, but I’m mentioning her again because she just published this post on putting together a little cleaning caddy for kiddos. How very Montessori of her.

  • Well, I really loved this little diy for fabric memory cards, but realized it’s Toy Story themed and I’m not so much a fan of that. But no matter, because you can use whatever fabric you want.

  • I’m reading a fascinating kid-lit book called Journey to England about 2 Swedish siblings whose mother goes missing and the journey they take across the ocean to England to find her. It’s another older book written in the early 60’s and set in 1885, and the reason it’s so interesting is because the mom and daughter are hair-workers from Dalecarlia, neither of which I know anything about.

  • For a truly great diy face scrub, try Growing Up Herbal’s recipe for this floral Microdermabrasion. Scroll halfway down the page to get to it.

  • And if we ever had any doubts about the natural capabilities of babies and toddlers, this video puts them all to rest. It might be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.

Okay, now you tell me what your week looks like in the comments below, because the whole point behind this new series is so we can inspire each other to grow and learn and do, so share away :)
