Body Love. Food.

We received a wonderful gift from a friend the other day, 16 pounds of organic apples! Just like with sewing I have a season of canning food, from October through the end of winter (and just after Easter if I can get a good deal on closeout organic ham), and the season has begun. Today I happen to have an eager two year old as my helper. He helped me wash the apples and after I cut them he then transferred them into the crockpot, where I was turning them into apple butter.

Body Love. Support.

A few weeks ago I talked about my struggles with comparison while at church. Today I had the pleasure of attending church with my husband. This is a great rarity with his demanding schedule.

Body Love. Sewing.

I am just settling into a long evening of costume making. Gone are the days of just having a costume ready for Halloween. Now we have trunk or treat a week in advance and various other activities this week where costumes are “welcome” (although not at school). I have a strained relationship with sewing. I love what I can create with a sewing machine or needle and thread, but often get frustrated with the process.

Body Love. Freedom.

Whew, what fun! My preschool son had a field trip today and my two year old got to tag along. We went to a farm and stable to ride ponies, enjoy a horse drawn wagon, and see the other animals. My two boys were unimpressed by the chickens and rabbits since we have those here at home, but they really enjoyed the ponies! And while the chickens were not as crowded as say an actual chicken farm, they still seemed crowded compared to my ideals.
