Christmas traditions

Life lately

Sarah is contemplating what it means to live seasonally and how to approach winter with a positive attitude, as inspired by these two podcasts.

The tree is now up in Abby’s house, much to Plum’s delight. When she is not gazing in wonder at the Christmas lights, Plum is now practicing her new skills–pushing to a sit and army crawling.

Reading lately

Sarah’s needed a break from heavy books this week and did a reread of Veronica Roth’s Divergent.

Abby is working through Salt, a collection of poetry by Nayyirah Waheed, which she has found to be both powerful and challenging.

Christmas traditions

‘Tis the season! We start by reliving the traditions of our childhood, then on to college, the newlywed years, and end with the traditions we are creating for our own children.

And as promised, a link to the pallet tree at Sarah’s house.

Eating lately

Abby cooked a whole chicken in the Instant Pot. So easy and delicious.

Sarah discovered this recipe for roasted cabbage with bacon. The perfect way to use up the cabbage from her CSA!
