Farmer's Market season is well under way, and we are enjoying weekly trips to our local mare=ket for things like sweet strawberries, peas, asparagus, organic chicken...and sausage rolls! Our gardens and existing fruit plants are all flourishing!! I've had two wild raspberry harvests this week, the pear trees are laden with fruits and hey, look, we grew a cucumber!
We are in the throes of all that accompanies having a one year old in the family:
Seeking out, conversing with and interviewing potential child care providers
Deciding on the details for a first birthday party!
Scheduling a one year wellness appointment - so curious as to how this boy has grown the past few months!
Making the necessary plans to get myself back to work come August. Yikes.
Sneaking a million extra minutes of cuddles and kisses to make up for all the one's I'll miss in a few short weeks...
I tested out Honest wipes and dipes bundle, and sadly I was NOT impressed with the results. :( I heard SUCH great things about their absorbancy, and fit, but sadly, I have found them lacking. We are so blessed that our wee man sleeps through the night - but that means we need a diaper that lasts up to 12 hours. So far, the only diapers I have found that are up to the job are yucky, smelly, chemical laiden Pamper's. I had high hopes that the Honest dipes would do the trick, but they barely make it through 4 hours without being soaked through, and gaping open. So sad! I'll be calling them to cancel our bundle subscription and talk to them about our issues...stay tuned.
I'm taking a breather from working on my novel to spend some time READING novels. It's been so darn long since I read a book, I needed a little insight, a little refresher as to what makes me tick, and what makes me twitch when it comes to fiction.
I'm in the process of auditing my instagram archives to have them curated into bound books! ChatBooks offers 6x6, 60page full colour books for $6! shipped! However, I have over 1600 photos in my instagram account, and there are a LOT from when I first started that are...cringeworthy. It's a long, slow process, but I would be devastated to lose those memories, so I think this will be worth the invest of both time and money.
What are you up to these days?
