Coping and catching up...

I have started to feel a lot better lately. I am still really tired, but I am getting the hang of what I can and cannot eat and I am not running into landmines near as often as I was even a week ago. I still cannot eat vegetables. Which is driving me crazy, but I am coping.

I have so much catching up to do. Garden, house, chicken coop, yard, flower beds, garage.... you name it, I have hours worth of work to catch up on due to the last two months of being under the weather. I started on the garage a few days ago... I realised quickly that I am not working as efficiently or as long as I used to. It made a huge mess for days, but slow and steady is the pace I am taking now, and it got done eventually.

The garden is doing alright on it's own, but the pathways are overgrown with weeds and grasses and there are a lot of things that have bolted now. Here is a walk through from yesterday morning:



I took care of a bunch of the weeds today and watered really well. I picked about 1/2 lb of strawberries and a bunch of lettuce, kale, and chard that was bolting which I fed to the rabbits and chickens. It is frustrating to only be able to do an hours worth of work at a time, but I am feeling so much better that I can't complain. The days are cool in the morning and beautiful in the afternoons. And I am taking advantage of every moment I can.

Hope you all are having a beautiful Friday!

It seems like by this time of the summer, the garden looks all over-grown and wild. I am not even expecting and it gets crazy and (at times) uncontrollable! I wish you all the best and I enjoy reading about your progress. It makes me feel that us moms are all in this together! Take care of yourself and enjoy those summer nights!

*Many Blessings* Erika
