Thursday, November 15, 2012 hang with Isabella

...since she has not yet returned to school.

What's a girl who's been home sick for so long to do?

A little writing....

She's on Chapter 2 of a book she is writing...for fun.
 and some light reading? article on little Malala
I don't know about you but when I head to the doctor's office I take this opportunity to catch up on the latest gossip with the stars.  You know things like...US Weekly or People Magazine.  I think Isabella misread my memo on choice reading materials at the doctor's office and picked up Newsweek instead.

I, of course, was catching up on Facebook (on my phone) when my nine-year-old asked for the definition of blasphemy when I realized this err.  After looking it up, because I couldn't give her a good definition off the cuff (on my phone), I decided I had better catch up on my current affairs as well....sigh.  So much for catching up on the latest gossip on which famous soccer moms attended their kids soccer games (e.g., Reese Witherspoon) this past weekend....

This all got me thinking that maybe Mark's genes have been shining through a little too much lately in my dearest I wanted to impress a few of my own influences on her....

So we:

  • watched a movie while we did some knitting (multi-tasking), 
  • folded some laundry, 
  • went out to lunch 
  • rounded out our quick afternoon outing with a stop at Starbucks.

Movie.  Lunch.  Coffee.  Three things guaranteed to make one feel better.

Whereas reading and writing...are bound to give a person a headache.


  1. I like the way you think! Too much reading and writing are bound to give you a headache!

  2. I hope Isabella feels better soon and gets back to school!

    What are the knitting projects that were worked on?

  3. Poor little kiddo; because she's sick and she's boring. Reading, writing, looking up words in the she yours?
