I did try the children on plain mackerel, because they usually like fish, but the mackerel didn't go over well. A bit strong-flavored for them, I guess. Sadly, the fabulous fatty omega-3 oils made no impression on them. Back to tilapia for the munchkins.
The evenings are really sort of a blur of childcare; mostly nice, but also tiring, and impossible to get much done other than some housework. Ditto weekends. Which leaves the weekdays for classes, renovation meetings / research, writing. It's almost enough time, but not quite -- I'm falling even further behind in e-mail. I'd have more time for e-mail if I stopped reading or doing stained glass or knitting -- but then I'd be a big cranky monster and no one would be able to live with me. It's a dilemma.
Recently I've been on a YA fantasy kick; wanted to check out the competition, I guess. Enjoyed Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan -- reminded me a bit of the Naomi Novik books in world-flavor. Will read the sequel. Am on Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver now, which I have to say, killer graphic design on the cover. Also, I love her name. Liking the book too, although it's maybe a little over-the-top teen angst/love for me. But still good.
