Three years and counting, I love you Aaron.
I wouldn’t be the person I am today if God would not have put you into my life.
Three years and counting, I love you Aaron.
I’m taking a stand, and making a change, it’s been a long time. I’m supposed to be in the prime of my life, I should not be this unhealthy and this out of shape. I have no excuse to be this overweight. And I’m changing because I choose to. Because I want to be around for my husband. I want to give my future children the healthiest start possible. If I told you how much weight I have gained since I have been married you probably would not believe it!
And in saying this doesn’t give people leave to “check up” on me every time I see them, there is nothing more irritating to me when five people in a row ask you the same thing. They might think they are the only one asking but keep in mind I might have already had a bunch of different people ask me the same question. “They just ask because they care” you might retort in attempts to ‘put me in my place’, well saying “You look good” is one thing, but when ten people in a row ask you the same question (e.g.”How’s the weight loss going?”) and make inquiries and accusations about your health let’s see how chipper you’ll be! If you want updates check out this blog please.
I haven’t made a total plan yet and I am debating on whether or not to share it.
Other than that I have not been posting as much because I don’t really have that important to share, I guess.
Piddly garlic turnout, probably because I didn’t cover them up with straw.
Three kinds of potatoes
Three kinds of onions
Tomatoes from Libby
Painted Lady Runner Beans
Yard Long beans
Flint Corn for Cornmeal
Plenty of herbs, medicinal and culinary
Peas in the greenhouse and Peas in a pot
Getting better at organizing as usual. But I’m not totally lost when it comes to making decisions anymore about keeping a house.
I have some projects that I need to do that involve paint.
Wasps and bees are everywhere! Ugh, that is the curse of having a house that has wood siding I guess.
Basil is still hanging around, he reminds me of his mother a lot.
Aaron has been talking about getting chickens for me. He says that if it was just him he would just get his eggs from the farm, but he knows I have been wanting some for awhile. There are also some ducks on Craigslist that I am interested in, also some pheasants…but I can’t get in over my head…yet!
I also have a few more endeavors up my sleeve but I’d rather not share them.
I think about my Grandma Gladys often in the summer not only because our birthday is coming up but I remember spending many days at her house in Munger. Dad would quiz us as we passed the different farm fields. “What’s planted in that field? What about that one?” Soon I learned the difference between beans, corn, beets and potatoes.
My parents must have really liked taking us places more than other parents and their children because we rarely got bored. We could keep ourselves entertained for quite awhile. There weren’t a lot of toys at Grandma’s house. There were stuffed animals that she kept on the back of her couch that I guess we could have played with but they gave me the creeps because they were set in the darker part of the living room. Sometimes I took my own stuffed animal with me but most of the time I would look through her jewelry, watch TV (all 5 channels) I never got to have an adult conversation with her. And it makes me very sad.
After our disappointment about not getting a house that was a good deal with more land, my house-seeking endeavors have taken me from local, to Iowa, to Montana, the Dakotas, Idaho and then aaaaalllll the way up to Alaska. So far my favorites have been Idaho and Alaska.
This week I will be camping out on the back property of my in-laws. Every year they camp to spend time together before the busy part of summer begins. Other than that I can’t really think of too much to tell you all!
Sorry for the delay in posts.
[Wordpress won't let me indent my paragraphs]Summer is getting closer, and we are prepping for the busy season. So far this year is going better than last year. My seedlings were a FAIL again this year, very dissapointing and embarrassing. But the greens, carrots, beets and peas growing in the greenhouse are doing well. The apple crop is promising. I plan on working the blueberry farm this year too, with Julie gone we are missing a valuable person (in more ways than one, we miss you Julie!), so, I probably wouldn’t be able to do as good of a job as she does but, I plan on helping in anyway I can, (how, about I use, more commas, in this sentence,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,can’t you see that I am not good with grammer and that I must be an idiot? [sarcasm] Oh well, my blog, my voice).
I’m expanding my blog to Youtube, I am FromSuburbToCountry1 here is my first video.
I am taking requests I already have a few ideas.
