New Years News

Happy New Year everyone!

I'm happy to admit at last that I'm pregnant, due in June. That's why I haven't been posting very much at all this past fall/winter season, as I've been barely managing to feed my family, keep my own food down, and make sure everyone has relatively clean clothes to wear. Cleaning and most other weekly and daily activities have been put to the wayside, as has regular posting, commenting, and responding to comments! My apologies, but growing a small human in those first couple months is hard on me!

Also, besides the not-having-much-to-talk-about that comes from not doing a heck of a lot other than laying on the couch, have you ever found that when there is a huge secret that you aren't sharing yet, you just can't find much to talk about? Yeah, that's me. Can't find much to talk about even if it kills me when I've got a secret that I'm dying to share but just not quite there yet!

So, now that you know, we can move on to other things!

I'm excited to share the latest project we've got going on over here, a play kitchen for Little M's third birthday! I'm not quite as far along making it as I would have liked, although I've got all or almost all off the pieces cut and sanded. However, since her birthday is this coming weekend, complete with a sledding party with some of her little friends, I have a bit of work ahead of me to get it assembled and prettied up...

Falling off to sleep dreaming of garden plans

Last night I was awake for a bit in the middle of the night, and as I drifted off to sleep I realized that I was planning out where the corn and tomatoes would go in the garden next year. I then realized how strange it was that I was thinking of the garden instead of planning out Christmas presents or events, and how it was strange to be thinking of next years garden when this past years garden is barely even covered with snow... But that's where I was at apparently!

I've received a few seed catalogs in the mail, and have leafed through them although I haven't yet started marking anything, or started a list of the seeds I will need for next years garden. I know we want to add Arugula. And I'd love to increase our garden space by putting up a new fence by Little M's playstructure, although that likely won't happen in the spring and will likely be a project for the following year. I am looking forward to starting the garden planning come the new year though, something fun and green to make the snowy cold days of January and February sail along faster.

Hope you all are enjoying the Christmas season and savoring the slowing down that winter brings.
