Home Again!

We are back! The past couple of days we have been relaxing and recouperating from our time away. It was a good time away - hubby received his degree, we got to see some people we haven't seen in many years, and we got to see some family.

It was a busy vacation, there always seemed to be something going on. We were very glad to return home to relax a bit. The kids were too. The weather has been absolutely gorgeous, so we've been outside a LOT. The kids would live outside if I let therm! Ethan has been enjoying the outdoors, really his first time exploring on his own.

I have been exercising my green thumb by weeding my flower garden. I am determined this year to keep up with the weeds and try to make the garden look half decent, and I have won the first battle! - Me: 1 Weeds: 0!

Last year, a couple of the ladies in the church helped me get the garden area cleaned out. It hadn't been taken care of for quite a few years. So there is much less work to be done with it this year, it just needs some flowers and maintenance.

I am just finishing up the first trimester of this pregnancy! It really has not been difficult so far. I have determined that I absolutely cannot eat grains or sugar if I want to feel my best. My tummy gets all bloated and I feel really yucky if I have eaten much of them. (my neighbor is determined that I'm having twins... I just chuckle and say "we'll see..." sheesh.) I stayed away from them for the past 2 days, and this morning I felt the best I have in a looong time. Today was a bad day, I went to a ladies tea, and one lady made gluten free cookies for me. And I made carrot-raisin bread. Oh well, try again tomorrow...


I've got more to share, and I hope I can keep up with this blog a little better now that things are settling down and I'm feeling better. But that will have to be all for now!


  1. Glad you are feeling better and glad to have you feeling better and posting again!
