Some exciting stuff is happening here on the half-acre homestead these days that I wanted to share. It seems like it has been a very long time since I’ve blogged about life around here.
My excuse: life with two little girls is busy! Also, my working from home is keeping me busy too.
The updates to report are:
Someone rolled over on her own and is getting so big so fast!! She is also six months old already and scarfing solids whenever given the chance.
Her digestive issues are still something I am trying to relieve and we just recently had her “birth trauma” confirmed in the form of a chiropractic evaluation and needed adjustment.
Remember, she was born with a nuchal arm (aka. her arm came out with her head). It seems we are on the right track with chiropractic adjustments and diet changes. I’ll blog more about the details in another post.
Oh and Adalyn’s hair is about 3 1/2- 4 inches long now. So crazy! She is making it seem like Everly was bald in comparison.
Also, spring has sprung in our garden and we are beginning preparations for another growing season complete with removing our cold frame window boxes.
We let the chickens forage in the empty beds for a few weeks to clean up the weeds, any dormant pests and also to spread some of their nitrogen rich poop around in the soil. LOL.
We said goodbye to a trusty friend (my infamous Isuzu, Amigo) and hello to a new ride that gets amazing gas mileage (a hybrid Prius).
We went from dropping $65 every four days to just under $35 every seven days for gasoline.
Are you jealous of our huge reduction in gasoline use with out new car? We now have a smaller tank and use way less fuel with the hybrid engine. Stoked!
The Amigo stopped running last summer and since then we’ve been down to one car here and we don’t totally NEED a 2nd car but it sure is nice to be able to get out and about again.
Nathan’s goodbye to the Amigo: “Rest in peace dear pink Amigo. Your 21 years of ridiculous service have been real. The cities of Flagstaff and Evansville will probably never see the likes of you again nor will they ever be the same. Adios Amigo… Adios.
This means us girls are no longer stuck at the house every day of the week. Everly is stoked her playdate/ social schedule can resume, mommy is glad to remedy the boredom.
Although, with the garden back in the swing of things we are curing boredom with outdoor chores again.
Also, I just got contact lenses and am no longer tied down by glasses. This makes me very happy. Yep, I’ve been in glasses for about 2 years now.
Wasn’t really wearing them as often as I should have and now with a grabby baby girl it is even harder. Plus, I hate not being able to use my peripheral vision in them so I made the switch and am pleased.
Oh and in less than 30 days I turn 30!! OMG. Times flies.
