{35}: DC

"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week in 2013."

On the Range
August 27 - September 2, 2013

{On the Range} is my weekly series where I discuss what we're doing, reading, and eating. It's a little bit 52 project and other photo projects, and a little bit {Did you Read?} and {In the Ranger Kitchen}.


My week...

  • We made our annual trek to DC to visit our friends David and Caroline and let our kids play together. I used to dream about having two generations of friends in one room, so it's great for me to see it actually play out in real life.

Media

  • Design Mom offered a refreshing and simple mom's take on the Miley incident. But if you want to delve into deeper issues like feminist solidarity and minstrelsy, see this deeper reflection on Jezebel's GroupThink.
  • Historical fiction is quickly becoming my favorite genre. I just finished The Paris Wife and loved it. Before that I loved Sarah's Key. Here's an NPR story that recommends more historical fiction choices for the summer.
  • The Bloggess sums up the quirkiness of bloggers well.
  • Segregation is gone, but that doesn't mean integration has happened. This map is a beautiful way to represent the demographic facts.
  • The Onion's fake explanation is generally better stated than the real one could be, as is the case for this CNN.com discussion about Miley Cyrus and the VMAs
  • I'd like to read this book, even if it means no more shopping at H&M
  • Interesting take on consumerism in children's books. I think shelves and bins are not a bad idea, but I agree with the author that they could have covered the donation and purge of stuff too.

Meals
  • Thanks to Elle, we are pumping ourselves up to make a bunch of these freezable meals. Sweet potato shepherd's pie or lentil curry, anyone?
