New favorite toy: menorah, er, “mah nee nee” // New favorite dinner: matzo ball soup!
Oi there, hello my dears! Another week has come and gone and we roll ever onward into this holiday season. I’m so excited! Everything’s stacked on top of each other this year, just BAM! BAM! BAM! one after another. Hanukkah, then Solstice, then Christmas, all in a 6-day span. Woo-Hoo! It’s going to be a busy weekend . . .
So, you may or may not know that I am slowly (VERY! SLOWLY!) working on a side project: CompassionateFamilies.com. This will be a comprehensive web resource for all things veg*n family, from pregnancy through to the teenage years. It’s going to be RAD, featuring static resource pages, a blog that’s made up mostly of individual contributions, and a whole honkin’ discussion forum for people to meet and help each other out. Like I said, RAD!
But it’s going to be a while. In the meantime, here on Bonzai I’ve backed off on writing specifically about veg*n pregnancy and child-rearing, because I’ve wanted to “save” that stuff for Compassionate Families. However, I’m thinking of changing that. I have an idea for a series, called “My Vegan Pregnancy”, where women share their own personal experiences. Anyone interested in submitting their story? Contact me! info AT bonzaiaphrodite DOT com.
And now, one big fat cherry of gratitude to top off another wonderful week. Le Love List!
1. It’s heeeeere!
Rawesomely Vegan, the uncookbook that I contributed to, arrived in the mail this week. It’s so purty! I can’t wait till it’s officially on sale mid-January!
2. I’m Featured in VegNews!
I’m in the current issue of VegNews (which isn’t quite out yet? I think?) I haven’t actually seen it – just this picture – but apparently it’s a full page (???). It’s for a new feature where they ask people to give a little write-up of their most recent vegan-related reads. And they asked me! Squee! So crazy.
3. This Video.
No really, just watch it.
Alright guys, now it’s your turn – tell me what you’re loving this week!
My darlings, this happy little post will stay at the top of the page all weekend, so stop by any time to leave your Love List, ask a question, or offer some feedback! Or if you’re new, please introduce yourself and say ‘Oi!’! This is your community, so get involved!
Happy holiday prep, happy weekend, and happy happy days to you!
