On my Nightstand

No serious reading material, as you can tell. The Joyful Community is about an intentional Christian community-- I've read it before, but before the kids, so I now have new eyes for how their community works. Then there's a montessori book, a massage book (for adults, not babies... a wonderful excuse to exchange massages each night), my journal, and a baby yoga book.

What are you reading? Any recommendations?

Hi Adele,

I'm (trying) to read Why People Don't Heal and How They Can by Caroline Myss. One of my favorites is The Sex Lives of Cannibals: a non-fiction, HILARIOUS story about a couple living in the middle of the Pacific.

I definitely can relate to a lot of what you posted the last week...the dog hair on the rug...natural toys...living simply...except: having a meal plan and available groceries. Most weeks I just plan one or two meals and live day to day otherwise.

Living on the edge for me is doing some activity that is totally unplanned (like a daytrip).

I mostly read fiction. In fact the last non-fiction I read was a Waldorf book on making your own toys for babies, that was an age ago.

I have just finished reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, which is a fiction loosely based around the German occupation of the island of Guernsey (one of the channel islands off the UK coast) during WWII. It was really great, I'm a sucker for that sort of historical fiction.

I need to look for some non-fiction type stuff really!

Ooh, thanks for the tips. Gives me a good excuse to visit the library.
