Fresh from the Garden

I am getting into a bit of a routine now. I was able to get all my chores done yesterday in the morning and also made time for a 30 minute workout and a shower. Yeah!

I am having the grumpy/emotional/painful days of ovulation that started yesterday. This means a not nice Mommy to be around and eating good becomes more difficult. I had a struggle in the afternoon with my eating and did overindulge on food that I never eat. I hate the cycles that evolve when I overeat. I am sure all who struggle with weight issues know what I am talking about and there is no need to explain any further. I hope I do better today!

Last night I went out to weed the garden and found I had some produce ready to pick and eat. I harvested 4 cucumbers, (we all shared one last night, yummy!) 3 zucchini (small) and lots of green beans. Guess what we are having with our lunch and supper today?!?!?

A side note; we decided that adding a kitten to the family was not a great idea at this point so I was able to find a good home for her at our neighbours where we can visit and play with her as often as we would like. This made it a bit easier for the children to accept the fact that WE were not keeping her.


  1. Oooooo, so purdy!! Love those fresh veggies, Christine!

    sorry for the hard hormone day.. I struggle my worst on hormone crazy days too... keep pushing through... do what you have to to get through.. cry, journal, have someone take the kids for a bit.. go for a walk... anything to distract is good.

    Hope tomorrow is much much better for you!


  2. We've been harvesting similar veggies from our garden. It's fun isn't it? Sorry about the hormone days...YUCK! I find some months are worse than others. Enjoy your veggies!
