“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

... You Know ....

... there comes a time when life relaxes a bit.  Not often, but once in a while.  Of late, all things on the home front seem to be in a rhythm.  The Mr. is set with his retirement routine (much to my delight), he helps out around the home taking care of some of my former duties.

Our garden is snow free.  We've been in the gulf stream generated by the pineapple express bringing much warmer temps than normal.  While I don't boast much about this deviation from our normal winter weather since much of the country is below and beyond freezing, it has been a nice break for our area.  This is the time of year I usually drag out my mini greenhouse and start planting garden seeds.

Nathan is doing so well on the GAPS diet .. having been on it for about three months now.  Moodiness 95% vanished as well as a host of inflammation problems with his skin.  He no longer craves carbs, shoulders have gotten more muscular and broad, less and less night time accidents, and NO MORE EXCESS OBNOXIOUS GAS!

God is good!

Mrs. Mac,

Good to see you back!

Full retirement for the Mr., and now into a routine at home. I'm so excited for you.

We've been getting a bit of this cold weather. I was able to plant some onions outside, and put on the good old greenhouse inside for planting.

Have you started any of your greenhouse planting?

Enjoy your warmth!!!

I'm very excited to hear how well Nathan is doing and I'm hearing great things about GAPs. Just today on Pete Evans' fb page was a shared story from a mum about her son with autism and the journey and benefits of GAPs. Here is the link as I thought you might be interested.

Equally exciting is your warm change because I know how much I look forward to itwhen roles are reversed here. I never want to see our summer go and I can perceive the daylight shortening. Oh well. Today I am making tomato sauce.

All the best from me so far away x

SO glad to hear of the calm that you're currently experiencing. Here, it's hard to believe that spring will EVER come :)

Welcome back to the world!, well at least the blogging world :)
great to have an update and I am going to recommend your diet to a friend who will, I think, find it very useful.
