*I'm wishing we had our own chickens. Our town allows up to four hens in your yard but hubby has said no. Just look at those pretty eggs! I guess I have to stick to trying to find farm fresh eggs from others.
*I'll be busy painting Becca's bedroom in the coming week. I'm finding all kinds of projects to keep my mind busy. If I'm exhausted at the end of the day (which I always am!) I am able to fall asleep much faster. A busy mind is the key to my survival these days.

*I'm getting back into cooking, though have a horrible time coming up with meal ideas and actually grocery shopping for them. Yesterday, at Sam's Club, I almost burst into tears several times. The last time we were there was on Jacob's birthday, picking out items for our camping trip. Everything reminds me of Jacob. I can't make his favorite food items yet: roasted chicken, mashed potatoes, baked beans. 

*It feels like fall today. I keep thinking it is July or August yet - I kind of missed this whole summer (much like last summer when we were in the hospital for 40 days). It's time to start pulling out our fall clothing. Maybe I can get all the bins organized in the process. It makes me feel sick thinking about putting Jacob's clothes away.

*I may take the kids to the Amish discount store today. I was able to stock up on a lot of organic and whole grain items for very cheap last week. It's a new favorite place.


  1. Thinking of you often. Sending love. <3 How is everyone else managing?

  2. the one good thing about NOT having chickens is you don't have to figure out what to do with them in 3 years when they stop laying eggs!

  3. At least, you don't have to clean after chickens :) These eggs look lovely though.
