hightailin' it

i am still on a break from the house. we are even gettin' outta here for a week.

i start school 2 weeks today. barf. by school i mean work. i love my work and i like how i feel at the end of the day and i know once i get into the routine it will all be good, but i would be a liar to say i haven't shed a tear the past few days. g is growing up and someone new has to come into her life and hug her when she falls, rock her to sleep, make sure she gets all her veggies and fiber, see her smile and laugh at something i will miss, teach her new things!!

o man. it hurts the heart to be a mommy. i do know that our situation is great, i have lots of time off and short days and she doesn't have to go to daycare, but it don't matter my friends, it feels sad.

anyways, it is good for her. she will flourish so quickly over the next year and i still take time everyday to smell her head and kiss her neck and hold her and keep those smells and feelings safe in my memory. o goodness, enough of this i am crying all over the keyboard.
i will post our trip to this market. the pictures should be good, and i will take pics of our bike rides and sunsets and scrumptious farm fresh meals.

on the outs

that's right i am on the outs with our house. we are taking a break, ol 37 and i. we need some time apart. they say distance makes the heart grow fonder. we shall see.
my poor dad. not sure how he is still standing on gods green earth. he drew me a pic of the trench that is in our basement at the moment. yep. a trench. there may have been a botch job, from way back when, on a cracked pipe that they thank goodness found now and not after all the work was done. we are a true example of the glorious surprises that come with reno-ing a house. i can't even begin to list the nightmares uncovered at 37 florence. so, no pics, no updates, no nada on the house for a bit.
i believe in my heart this break will be good and these disasters, once rectified, will make our house even more of our home in the end. i just have an end date in mind and it is not looking promising.
@#$%* trench.

on another note. friggin finally. this pic is a wee blurry but i must say it looks like g!!!
the family;)

chia seed puddin'

i found a new hearty snack for georgia. actually, we like it as well.
pudding made from chia seeds! yum! full of protein, omega 3's and 6's, fibre and so on!
plus it is so very easy which is my favorite type of recipe.

3Tbls of ground chia seeds
1 cup of rice or almond milk
1 tsp of cinnamon.
stir it together and divide into ramekins (this recipe makes 2 servings) place in the fridge for 40 min or leave overnight.
you can make chocolate by using the chocolate versions of these milks.
