I am writing a little update about our lives this last week. This may be more for family and friends but feel free to read along.
We got possession of the house last Thursday night so we decided to have a little picnic on our floor. The picnic was a lot of fun but the aftermath of this already prepared food was not a hit for me. Hours later, I ended up with severe abdominal pain and what I believe was some type of parasitic or bacterial infection. It was awful. I had moments where I could barely walk. Needless to say, we have such loving and caring friends who were SO helpful and insistent that I not carry boxes etc. It is not easy watching your friends carry out your dirty laundry baskets, dog's bed and dusty furniture.
My youngest is continually asking me to dig up worms, help her find more lady bugs and chase frogs. In the picture aboveshe had just run in from outside to show me her latest bug find.
I am finally feeling 100%. Today I learned how to properly pick and store apples. I can't get over these fruit trees and am looking forward to creating some more fall recipes ;)
