I'm Nadine. Thanks for stopping by. The floors are creaky, the kids are loud, but the door's always open and the coffee's always on.

Make yourself at home.

Weekend Reading Vol. 6: The Crown and Dirty Coffee Cups

Well. This week happened. (I tried to write a sentence here, but it turned into a meandering rant about hate and love and fear and 'What-the-heck, America?' My heart hurts.)

Two highlights:

1. We took Ursula to the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair and she got to meet real live baa-baas and moos!

2. We watched The Crown on Netflix. And drank all the Lagavulin.

You gotta make the best of it, right?
