The new kid on the block


It's been almost 2 months since our new little man arrived VBAC style, but as most anyone who is reading this, already knows, babies need 100% of your attention, and I was never a true blogger anyway.

It's Advent!


You have got to love The Piano Guys!



And Wow!
I'm a lover of a capella.

Wednesday at the Farmer's Market (plus some rambling)

It's another Farmer's Market post because that's all I'm capable of at the moment.

A couple of weeks ago, I was rear ended, and sent to the hospital to check on Little Bear while being put on restricted activities for a week.  (He seem's to be fine and I am back to regular activities.)  However, the stress of dealing with insurance companies has been really overwhelming.  I hate dealing with them.  I hate the feeling like they are just trying to do the most unfair thing possible and that I need to keep my guard up.  And I HATE that I have to run around getting the stupid car fixed, buy a new carseat, switch stuff over to a rental...... Ugh.  Too much activity for me at this stage of pregnancy and G's stage of being.

Did I mention that this is the THIRD time that someone has crashed into my car in the past 5 months?  It's like I am driving an invisible car or something!  I should not be allowed to ride in cars while pregnant.

Directly following that, I my left leg got so bitten be bugs over labor day (we went to my step brother's cabin for a day..don't worry I did a big fat lot of nothing because of my restriction) that I looked like I had a contagious disease.  It was horrible.  And the itching and the pain was killer.  If someone offered to amputate the 4 days it took to get over the hump, I may have let them.  That's how bad it was. It took a quarter bottle of calamine spray just for 1 application to the bites.  So of sticking to the allowed 3-4 allowed applications a day, I used the whole bottle in ONE.

But this is a CSA POST!


4 Small Apples
3 Tomatoes
1 Red Sweet Pepper
1 Cucumber
1 Acorn Squash
6 Sweet Potatoes

Fresh From the Farm: Yesterday at the CSA and Farmer's Market


I so need a better camera.
Or some photography lessons.
Or a kitchen with better lighting.
OR ALL THREE.

I probably need all three.

Anyway....  Here's the haul:

1 Nice Sized Eggplant (have I mentioned that Eggplant Parmesan is one of my pregnancy cravings?)
2 Tomatoes (Sorry, I already ate one...)
1 Cucumber (I now have a million, I need to can some relish before they go bad..)
2 Small Onions
1 Sweet Pepper
4 Sweet Potatoes
4 Small Apples
1 White Squash

I also bought:
1 Dozen Eggs (You only see 8 because once again,,,,I ate 2 almost immediately upon arriving home)
6 Large Peaches (I managed to hold off eating one until after the photo was snapped.)

It's going to be a yummy week!
