My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs. My links above are all new and current.

I have only positive things to say about Permission to Mother, an autobiographical account of a thoughtful mother and clinician who courageously writes from her heart, soul, brain, and personal experience; who is open to change in her views and opinions and is not guided by the safety of rules of any group or the status quo; she is guided by love and openness to the experiences life brings her and her family. Her process benefits her and those around her and those who read her words. And to add to that, the writing style and story telling ability here make it a very enjoyable read speckled with both the humor and seriousness of life. ~Laura Keegan RN FNP, author of Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy

Gorgeous Day Today

Today must have been the most gorgeous weather ever. I hurried out to the Farmer's Market this morning thinking it would get super hot by noon. I won't be able to pick up my produce at co-op this week, so it was priority to stock up today. To be honest, I have fallen in love with the locally grown mixed greens. My kids are even eating salads now!! There is such a big difference between the freshness of the local produce (picked the evening before) and anything, I can get at the grocery store.

Our farmer's market is on the water. See the photo in the right navbar. The boys like to snack on fresh bread or boiled peanuts (but they like my boiled peanuts better, yeah!!) while I pick out produce.

The market is not really that close to us and it takes up a whole morning and I can't make any other errands on the same outing because the food would spoil in the hot car.

However it was so pleasant and refreshing outside today. I remembered that the U-pick hydroponic farm had a special on strawberries this weekend and so the boys and I headed to pick strawberries. We picked about 15 pounds! Yum, Yum, Yum. Lot of pesticide-free Strawberries.

After getting home and unloading. Scott, David, and I, got on our bikes, went to the playground and enjoyed the rest of the day outside.

Today we've had our yummy salads, strawberry milkshakes (with almond milk), strawberry dipped in (my kind of) chocolate, and fresh bread. I put some stuff in my dehydrator. I made Raw Brownies (Scott approved). My windows open. The breeze was lovely. John worked about 12 hours today. He missed the fun. This was suppose to be the first day of our break together, but the doctor covering for him had a family emergency.

None of this was what I had planned for today. So much to do for holidays and getting out of town..... oh, but it was so nice to play all day worry free.

Our day was completely opposite of yours...
I think it was just what you needed. A day to relax and think about nothing but fun with the boys!

Sounds like today was your day! Much needed, I'm sure. Glad you were able to relax and spend some quality time with your boys. They must be happy to have your full attention again.

Congratulations on a gorgeous day. We are snowed in here. Church services today were canceled. After shoveling last week's foot of new snow from the driveway yesterday, today there's a good 8 inches right back in it. My Adirondack chairs in the back yard are nearly smothered in snow! Only the tops of the backs are peeking out of the drifts. No one is going anywhere if they can help it. The temperature outside right now is 8 degrees, and the furnace is barely keeping it at 66 in the house. We are about to start a fire in the basement to help keep the house warmer. The wind chill is -7. There. Now... doesn't your beautiful day sound even better? (-: lol.
