…yet I find myself posting a few tidbits just because.

  • Three girls and a mommy are well, still have one girl sick and now a sick daddy. 
  • No weekend post from daddy.  It was not a good weekend here.  A bloody nose that lasted all day and well into the night (Brie, and it was a nasty one), feverish kids, snot everywhere, cold weather, and just-not-what-you-want-to-do with-your-weekend type weekend.
  • The purse is almost done.  So far I have ripped out one seam twice as well as other odds and ends for a total of over 100 inches ripped.  I used to think patterns were over-priced, now I am liking the idea of a pattern very much.  It is turning out a little larger than I would have liked, but I let my fabric dictate the size.   So far as the fabric goes, I am so pleased with the combo I chose, more so than any project I have done in a very long time.

My resolutions:

  • I am still doing Yoga at minimum once a week (trying to bump it up to two times but everyone keeps getting sick!  Also paying more attention to non-starchy vegetables.
  • The house is slowly getting re-worked.  I am seriously thinking of going all white.  Crazy with all these kids running around, but half the rooms need painted and paint cost less in 5 gallon buckets.  Closets and cupboards are being drastically reduced and a yard sale will be had as soon as the weather breaks.  The laundry plan, I’m still wanting to give it a go, but it hasn’t worked so far.
  • Currently I am reading Galatians, main topic being false teachers.  It is more enjoyable and definitely more relevant to today than I had expected.

How are you doing on your New Year’s Resolutions?

I’m still having blog issues, I’m pretty sure it is me.  Regardless, I had this nice crisp photo that I added my blog’s  name to.  As you can see up there, it is all blurry now…sigh.  At least it isn’t snow.  Seeing as how I look out at the trees blowing around like mad, water everywhere, and not a patch of snow to be found, I figured it was time to oust the snow and put up something green.  At least it makes me feel better!

Speaking of feeling better, today is day three of all four girls fevering and being miserable in their own way.  No other symptoms aside from a dry cough, for that I am thankful.   It’s not easy, especially for the twins as they just want me to hold them.  Not much else is getting done around here aside from hugs, movies, and books.  Could be worse, though, it could be one at a time, a week at a time.  That was what January was and so far I’m thinking this is a good trade.

Blueberry pancakes, just because:

under the weather

Jane and I are under the weather.  We are taking an echinacea, mint, and nettle tincture as well as broths and keeping warm.  Swollen glands, runny nose, slight fever…it all is slowing me down.  Who is going to soak grains then rinse and dry them, who will keep up with the rotating out of summer clothes, who will plan meals, watch the budget, and teach school.

Oh yeah, life keeps moving even when mom is sick…thankfully I have a husband who isn’t afraid to dig in and get his hands dirty.  Hopefully I can sneak a nap in here and there and I’d better be feeling good by Monday as my garage is smelling like a cider house in preparation for apple day!
