Like I said in my previous post, I’ve been feeling this sense of urgency – I want to move to our property! I’m tired of paying landlords, I’m tired of my husband being gone most of the day, I’m tired of having to ask permission to do things in the yard, tired of being limited in space, tired of not having a milk cow… I’m tired of lots and lots of things! Especially in the realization that gardening here is pretty much impossible, which is going to be harder on me as time goes on.
Gosh it’s been a while, huh! I wish I could say I’ve been busy busy and productive, but the truth is I’m just kinda hanging in there 🙂 I haven’t had the mental energy to put into writing much lately and we’ve been going through a lot of changes. Good changes, but things that take my brain in places and then I have no room left to write.
I’ve been having a slight problem this pregnancy. And forgive me if I refer to being pregnant on each post… it’s just that it’s a huge part of my daily life, and not in a good way. Dear Third Child of Mine, I know someday you will be reading this post and don’t think I am not excited about you. I am THRILLED about you. But pregnancy does not treat your dear old Mama very well. So my life at the moment consists of trying to survive gestation. (pic is from when I was having Ballerina Girl, btw – I am not nearly this huge just yet.)
Creamy tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich – comfort food heaven, right? Even better – it’s a kid pleaser! I’ve been on a quest for some time to figure out the trick to make homemade creamy tomato soup that is 1. from scratch so it doesn’t have all the additives and is CHEAPER, and 2. doesn’t curdle the milk.
Hello my wonderful kind readers! It’s been a while and I have to say I have missed writing. I still am not going to write as much but I am hopefully almost done with the “sick as a dog” part of pregnancy so maybe here soon I’ll pick it up a bit. Anyway… the other day I mentioned to someone that this was definitely my last baby, I can’t tolerate being pregnant again. She said “Never say never!”
Okay so maybe not super-secret. Well, actually it kinda is because I won’t be telling anyone on Facebook for at least another couple weeks or so. But I have told SOME people already so it’s not totally a secret.
Just because I was meaning to do this for a while but never got around to it. I’ve installed a couple new plugins – one is called Comment Luv which means from now on, anyone who comments and includes their URL in the comment will have a link to their latest blog post with their comment when it’s posted.
Being a little contemplative this morning, looking at my life and how I do things. I’ve chosen a lifestyle that requires a lot of work and time-intensive things. But the truth is, I can’t do it all. And I’m not just talking about our food, I’m talking about everything.
Seeds of Change is giving away free seeds for the cost of shipping. Yes, it’s really that easy! I ordered some yesterday, what a great opportunity to try some new varieties and get some seeds stocked up for, well, you know… the Zombie Apocalypse 😉
Sorry about the lack of postings. I have been fighting some headaches lately and a lot of other weird things in my body. I’ve been barely surviving the basic life necessities! Though I did get lots of seeds planted this last weekend. Anyway, I have nothing important to say except I hope I can get a decent dinner on the table tonight. Blech.
