We have been having a lot of restless nights as of late. The children seem to be taking turns sleeping and being awake. With three of them we are outnumbered and very worn out. We do the best we can. I drink coffee and take crazy pills. Sometimes I just cry. It is okay: Sometimes you just have to sit down and let it all out. I think some people forget that we need to do this from time to time. It is a release and a cleansing. I have done it more then I would like to admit since becoming a mother, but I think it may just go with the territory.
Last night was extra special. We had rain, thunder, lightning and tornados. Our children are very sensitive to weather changes. It was a lot like having a concert in our living room and the children hated the music being played. We all made it through. We are alive and together and the chickens are fine too. Craig found an egg in the middle of the run this morning. I can only picture one of the girls out scratching when thunder boomed and out popped and egg.
I am still not certain if the tomatoes loved or hated the rain. We will know better in a few days. Everything else is looking fairly well.
I was in the grocery store yesterday. Fish is becoming crazy expensive. I guess I need to get on the ball collecting materials for the tallapia river. I have a couple of plans drawn up. I have researched the type that do well in my area and you do not need a license to breed them. Now all we need to do is build it. That always sounds so much easier then it really is.
I have been working on a lot of projects and I am going to post some pictures for you all to see.
First I want to share with you a time honored tradition; Pizza! Yes, pizza. Gluten free pizza is one of the difficult areas of the life style. Most time you get strange texture, strange flavors, cracker like, flavorless, or just plain gross crust. I have two methods I use. I use Bob's Red Mill GF Pizza Mix or the recipe for Pao De Quejo. I would change the cheese to Mozerella and take out the dill. You can add any herbs and spices you like for a personal touch.
