After the weekend: sled rides, reading, music, and a recipe.

This little face. She had changed so much the past month, it seems like her personality has really developed and she cracks us up, all the time.
{seven month post on the blog later this week}.

We got a bit more snow over the weekend. It just kept drifting down.

Christmas gifts from mom and dad. I so love these. I'm still deciding if I want to use them as bookends, or just leave them right there, just as they are.

Sunday morning brunch. Egg and Pepper Casserole.

The Midget is slowly starting on some solids. I've been a bit hesitant on starting her on food, but she just wants to eat like the rest of us so badly, that I've been giving in and letting her have small amounts of fruits and veg.

Sunday afternoon we took Adri over to small park across from our place and she had her first sled ride. She absolutely  L O V E D it! 

A childhood friend of mine wrote this song below (and is the one playing the guitar and singing in the film). I've been listening to it, and loving it a lot these past few days.

We have snow falling outside, and it's gotten pretty chilly overnight.
Adri is watching Baby Einstein, and I'm drinking coffee right now. As soon as I'm done typing I have laundry to put in the wash, a package to send out, dinner to start (Adam found this recipe* for Polish Sausage and Cabbage Soup, so I'm making that tonight) and books to read :)

Have a lovely Monday!

*Crock Pot Polish Sausage and Cabbage Soup.

2 cups potatoes, cubed and peeled
4 cups cabbage, shredded it fine
1 carrot, shredded it fine
1 large onion, chopped
2 teaspoons caraway seeds, crushed (optional)
1-1/4 lb Polish sausage, cooked, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/2 inch slices
4 cups fat free chicken broth or you can just use water
black pepper and salt to taste

Place potatoes, cabbage, carrot, onion, caraway seeds, sausage, pepper and salt in crock pot. Pour broth over all.
Cover, cook on low for 10 - 12 hours or high for 5 - 6 hours.


  1. Oh I can't believe she's eating food already ! Where has the time flown? What a cutie! Lovely gifts from your parents. So sweet! Thankyou for the recipe, sounds good! I'll have to check that song out. Keep warm!:) Christina
