Kids ~ Feeling Better ~ Determined to Put Up some Garden Bounty
She has now learned how to boil noodles, prepare and boil potatoes, make stove top tuna and noodle etc. I'm pretty proud that this blessing came out of this.
I can't wait to be sharing some beautiful and happy homesteading photos soon.
Today, the girls are checking my garden. Even though my eye infection is not completely healed, I am able to assist in the kitchen. I am told the tomatoes are in full force, so I told them to hold off a day or two (if they could).
Today? They'll check three things. If there are any to harvest, they'll both get lessons on freezing two of them. The third is the berry bushes. This makes me feel very happy. Very.
After I got over my "panic attack" last night (of all these tests), Hubby convinced me we are looking for anything that is compromising my immune system. I am just a sensitive person.
Although I won't be crocheting anything this small (stitch-wise), my goal is to relax with some handiwork next week. And teaching the girls how to use the tomato sauce machine.
I can tell you I slept better than ever last night, and the smaller spider bite is healing faster than I thought. The larger will take longer, but Hubby is insisting I "bubble wrap" it and take a motorcycle ride (for therapy, ha ha!).
My chickens have stopped laying eggs all-together. Not sure why, other than they haven't seen me. I do think I need to make a visit this weekend, and treat them. I miss seeing them. Too bad we don't have baby goats. That would be a huge dose of happy for me right now. Even toddler goats.
It's amazing what makes you happy when you homestead.
Thanks for all the well wishes, and happy thoughts. I really do appreciate them.
