- Aaaaand I’m back…again. Sorry for the hiatus, but there was some stuff going on in my life including not sleeping and having two thirds of my kids on antibiotics. Yay. The good news is that things have finally gotten back to
crazynormal. I’m going to try to play catch-up on the posts I’ve missed, but I don’t think I’ll be able to read all of them :(.
- In other news, my sewing machine is now repaired (which, to be totally honest, is another reason I’ve been away). I’m working on a post for tomorrow about what was wrong with it, my completed works and my WIPs.
- I’m starting to bring Elliot to daycare for short periods of time. He already knows everyone because he’s always with me when I drop off and pick up the kids, but this morning, I left him there for an hour and went for some one-on-one mommy Charles time at the nearby park. Charles was happy and Elliot was too. Next time, I’m planning on leaving him for the whole morning (up until lunchtime).
- Elliot is going to be a year old in a week (what!?!). I’m planning on making a mirror cake for his birthday because they look so pretty!
- I went for a run this morning and for the first time in months I felt no pain, not even the slightest little hint of it. The progressive program, PT exercises I do at home and treatments I’ve been getting are finally yielding some very real results!
- I had a bout of nostalgia yesterday and decided to check if two of the shows I watched when I was younger were on Netflix. They are! I’ll be watching Goosebumps and Are You Afraid of the Dark in the coming weeks. Please tell me I’m not the only 80s child who has fond memories of watching those.
- We’re finally going to be getting our windows replaced. I got a call from the company and they’re coming on Monday.
- I started learning Japanese with Duolingo last week. I’ve developed an interest in the language over the years from watching anime. It. Is. Hard! But, it’s so fun and interesting.
- Our plants are growing. The chives, thym and cilantro are doing great. The spinach that Charles sowed has taken nicely. Our string beans, lettuce and carrots have poked through the soil and our blueberry and raspberry bushes as well as our apple tree are showing signs of fruit production!
- Speaking of gardening, I found a really interesting book on Amazon. It’s titled: The Year-Round Vegetable Gardener and it it written by a Canadian who has managed to have fresh veggies all year-round at low cost. This is great as we’re slowly working our way to being more self-reliant.
What’s on your mind this Tuesday?
