Before anyone begins to think that I've either dissappeared or abandoned this blog, fear not. The absence of new posts during the past few weeks is because of a very happy and unexpected change of plans. We're having another baby! The new baby is due on April 11, 2010.
The past few weeks have been a bit rough- lots of nausea. I've been physically capable of little more than napping and drinking lemon-ginger or spearmint tea. I haven't been able to focus on much other than adjustments for this pregnancy, which is why there hasn't been a post in a while.
However, this news only brings the need to become more self-sufficient into sharper focus. Nothing is more important to us than securing a future for our family that can withstand the possible circumstances, such as economic collapse, pandemic illness, oil, food and water shortages, etc., that hover on the horizon. Not only do we seek to withstand such possibilities, but to thrive in the face of them.
And now, for another cup of spearmint tea.
Live better, a little every day.
