7 Quick Takes Friday (Vol. 24)
Girl loves her hats

So, as of this writing, I am up to the letter N in the A to Z challenge, which puts me, oh, ten letters behind or so.  But, I will persevere.  It might take until summer to get to Z, but it's going to happen.
Disclaimer: I am a math nerd.  If you are not also a math nerd, you may just want to skip down to number three because this particular quick take will not matter to you whatsoever.  
There is a classic probability experiment called The Monte Hall problem.  It has always, always bothered me.  I never understood why the solution is what it is.  And then, I watched this video on Khan Academy, and the metaphorical light bulb was illuminated. If you have experienced this same problem, I highly recommend watching this video.  If you have no idea what I am talking about, sorry.  But I thought I'd let you know. 

While I am typing these quick takes, I am making my first attempt at oil pulling.  I'll let you know how it goes.  So far, delicious. 

It was my turn to pick the book club book this month, so we are reading this.  Lately, my book club has had the problem of not everyone reading this book, which informed my choice.  I figure, if we all start at the beginning, we'll have at least one story to discuss.  So far, my favorite story in the book is "The Summer People."

For dessert tonight, I am making Jell-o Cheesecake.  I've wanted to make it for a few weeks now, but I held off because it was Lent.  Judge away, but I love the stuff.

One of the funniest bloggers out there, Grace, had baby number 4 this week.  Congrats to her and many blessings on her beautiful family!

Finally, I want to give a big shout out to my parents and Kurt's who have visited us in the past two weeks and have watched the kids for date nights, washed hundreds of dishes, and general been great company.  Thanks Am, Jeff, Marty, and Buddy.  You are welcome back any time.

  1. What else should I be doing for 20 minutes while I oil pull (besides gag)?
