This blog feels like it is slowly dying. You should see my page view stats! A steep decline! Ahh! But I have barely any motivation to write in here. I did take a picture of my breakfast this morning – Breakfast Quinoa! – but neglected to post it. Work and summer and life are just too busy! When I get home from work, the last thing I want to do is sit at a computer after being at one for 9 straight hours. The project – pursuing frugality and health – are still greatly appealing to me, but more on a “let’s think about this while riding the subway” sort of way rather than a “let’s post about this three times a day” sort of way. I haven’t been reading others’ food blogs either. It’s official: I suck!
But I am not fully abandoning this blog. How many blogs have whimpered out after 2 months? I am determined that won’t happen to this! I just need to get my mojo back.
In other news, I received the three books I ordered on Amazon! I read a bit of the hypnobirthing one, but really right now I am interested more in the Radical Homemaking one. Yes, I am giving birth in a mere 11 weeks (give or take) but my psyche has decided to skip the whole “birthing a human from my body” part and just focus on what it will be like to be home full-time with a newborn. Funny that!
Speaking of the not-yet-but-almost-a-newborn, he is doing well. He likes to jab, poke, prod, and kick and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Every so often, I can feel a body part (an elbow? a knee?) right near my belly button and it is the neatest thing. At my last midwife appointment, she said he was already head down. I wonder if he is still in that position? It is pretty nuts to have a person inside of you <– understatement.
I am trying to get back on the frugality bandwagon, even though I haven’t been tracking my spending. It’s not like I am blowing my money on diamonds and gummy bears or anything, but I always feel better when I stick to a budget. Call me Anal Retentive if you must (just not to my face, ok?).
Foodwise, I am about the same as usual. Lots of unphotographed peaches! I am actually overwhelmed this time of year, with the abundance of peaches and blueberries. So many things to possibly bake! Last night I made some blueberry muffins. I would like to make another peach crisp or cobbler. I have fantasies that next year I will try canning peaches, tomatoes, blueberry jam etc. This is something I think about every summer, and every summer I put it off to the next year…
Thanks for coming around even though this blog majorly lacks. As a present, I give you this:
Snooki makes everything better.
