Half way there!

Half way there to meeting the new member of our family, it is exciting and scary. I know that I have done it twice before but each time was different, as it should be. I have a doula this time around which I am quite happy about. Only 20 weeks left!

I haven't been blogging very much, the camera is still broken, and its just not as much fun when you can't take pictures :(

This week I planted 2 tomato plants in pots along with lettuce and herbs. It just seems like I would be feeding all the creatures of the forest if I was to plant the veggie garden in the yard. So right now it is over run with dandelions. I did plant the rhubarb that I traded a cinnamon bun for at the market. I have been told that deers don't eat it, so far so good. 

My mom and dad are visiting me for 2 weeks, they get here in a two days!! I have not seen my mom in a year, I wish they would move here and I keep trying to convince them, but that would be a HUGE move, across Canada. Mom said maybe in a couple years....fingers crossed. 

I made a really yummy poppyseed loaf the other day and wanted to share the recipe. Sorry no pictures, but trust me its GOOD!

Lemon Poppyseed Loaf

2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar

  1. Congratulations on being 1/2 there! I hope you are feeling well.

    I need to do some planting today as well!

  2. Yay for being 1/2 way done. I have 8 1/2 weeks to go! Lemon Poppyseed Loaf sounds good. I made Lemon Chia Seed Muffins last week too. :)
