Oy, I'm so out of it...

This article explains why I couldn't find as many outdoor "cultural" activities last summer!
Hmm... sad, but true.
 
So I'm planning our little doses of outdoor culture for this summer and the offerings seem nowhere near as rich as past seasons:
~ Cooking Fire (this weekend - Abi wants us to go tomorrow; Sara wants us to go on Sunday... Ted thinks Abi may win this one)
~ Dusk Dances (July)
~ Dream in High Park (all summer - and I've emailed them to see if I can volunteer)
~ Dusk Dances (August)
 
And that's it?!?  Maybe I'll poke around a bit more.
 
Suppers!
 
Tuesday: 
Elisheva's friend Shula came over, so we were all (mostly) on our best behaviour
~ Homemade pizza
~ Homemade creamy mushroom soup (deeelishus)
 
Wednesday (ie today):
~ Pasta with salmon, no idea yet what kind of sauce
 
Drove down to Riverdale with the littles this morning to catch the milking.  We actually got there on time (10:30) - yay!!!
Naomi has been crying and crying all day, so I put her to bed right away when we came home (after nummies), but now she is just lying there not sleeping, and miserable bc she hasn't had lunch yet... what am I supposed to do?
I think the big kids' screaming is really seriously undermining her healthy, positive outlook and making her even borderline depressed.  Who wouldn't be if every single day started & ended with screaming and fighting?!?
 
I want to send YM away; far, far away when he's like this.  These kids deserve a peaceful household.  They all do, including him, but if he's the source of disturbance, well... it's just not fair.  :-(

Are Jews an "underrepresented community" in children’s publishing?

I applied for a writing award yesterday. I'm not going to get it, but that's not what I wanted to share with you. Here's what I wanted to share. This box:   I stared at this box for a long, long time. And then I decided not to check it. Even though I believe people like me truly are underrepresented, we probably wouldn’t fit the definition in other people's minds. Why? Well, because we're European. Because we are white. Because as everybody knows, Jews control the media. (do we???) If anything, some people say, Jews are over -represented in publishing. And yet. Some definitions are careful not to include people like me. Like this random definition from the State of California which defines underrepresented for some very specific business purposes as: "an individual who self-identifies as Black, African American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native, or who self-identi
