It snowed today. All day. We ended up with about 6 inches which isn't bad at all considering it went throughout a majority of the day. It is absolutely beautiful! The Coop Girls, as you can imagine, are less than impressed. Actually, they're just downright angry. If you don't have chickens you are likely wondering how one knows if a chicken is angry. Well, they have a distinctive chatter and hum that is full of sarcasm mixed with absolute disgust. It was heard all day today.
We had a bit of snow last week too but I was home sick (again) and not up to enjoying it. It was some type of virus that turned into a sinus infection. And it's hanging on strong!
Being home sick gave me time to think about my general health, changes I've been wanting to make, and to watch documentaries. Documentaries that had to do with health. Good old Netflix! I decided to return to a primarily plant-based diet coupled with whole grains. I had researched Whole 30 a few months ago (similar to Paleo) and I just couldn't see it being right for me. So, I stopped eating meat, dairy, processed foods and sugar last week and haven't missed any of them a bit as of yet. I will still eat fish and seafood, whole grains and some "treats" made with whole grains and honey or maple syrup but primarily my meals will consist of fruits and veggies. I've had much more energy, don't feel as though I'm missing out on anything, and don't have to adjust meals too much in order to ensure J gets to continue eating what he likes too.
We got our next batch of chicks ordered. They are scheduled to arrive the second week in April. I'll be ordering veggie seeds this weekend. I'll need to purchase a few more fruit trees and vines this Spring as well.
On the homefront we've begun a small redo in the bathroom. This means that the unfinished dining room, which becomes a catch-all anyway, is full of stuff. Again. This drives me slightly crazy, if I'm being honest, and makes me anxious to get it done. Fingers crossed that happens next week. We thought we found the last furniture piece for the dining room but nope. Turns out it wasn't the right piece. Back to the drawing board!
How about you - have you made any big changes? Are you prepping for Spring already?
