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: 1Weeds: 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!
