Well I had great intentions for blogging when I finally got my computer back…only to find out I’m pregnant and to follow that up with morning sickness. Yes, morning sickness is what I’m going to blame my lack of posting on. While posting is easy, photography isn’t when all I want to do is lay down and wallow in my own misery.
However, I have not been! …wallowing, that is.
I have been chasing around a very whiney, very constipated 13-month-old though, and napping when she naps (for as long as she will nap). The constipation is being fought with irish oatmeal, sweet potato, and prune juice. I think we are on our way to a more healthy bowel.
I just have a hard time blogging with no photos. I know that the blogs I follow don’t just have to do with great writing. In fact, if I’m honest, I really mostly read blogs to stalk other people(who I have no relationships with)s’ lives through their photos. If you have a blog without photos and I read it, you are either a friend/acquaintance of mine who’s life I care/am nosey about or…you are ridiculously funny. So the fact that I haven’t been able to post photos makes me feel like my blog won’t be read anyway, so why bother…right?
But I feel the need to type, and here I am typing. Without photos.
Joe and I have both been frustrated homesteaders this week. Due to a storm, all our corn was rained on and fell over, not to be saved. Our tomatoes are plentiful, but blighted from a lot of rain early in the season. Hopefully our potatoes will fair better. Insects seem to be feeding on our other crops. However, our beans and summer squash are doing quite well.
I’ve been wanting to make lots of things from veggies either from our own garden or from things picked up at the farmer’s market, but I’ve been really useless in the kitchen these days. My mental ambition forgot to translate to the physical. Oh right…icky tummy.
On a happier note, we are hatching our own eggs, and they should be ready to break out at the beginning of September (in a little over a week). I’m hoping morning sickness will be over by then and I will be ready with my camera. I’m super excited for Piper to watch little chicks hatch.
Things I’m looking forward to getting to after the sickness passes are:
- every maternity tutorial from this blog
- baby/infant knitting
- canning & pickling
- pie baking (I’d love to get this book!)
- january pig butchery
Hope to be back soon!
