I haven't written in quite a while, mostly because my life in the last several months has been almost exclusively work and sleep. This time of year in Alaska, it seems that people lose their minds. We have had a huge increase in reports of child abuse. Also, over the winter, I really didn't have much to write about. The garden was quiet, and covered in snow, and not much got done on the house itself. So the blog has been quiet. But now the snow is melting, and the sun is shining. It got up to a sunny 45 degrees the other day, so I put on capri's and sandals. We have lots of tiny onions, leeks, and garlic growing in our south facing dining room window. James planted a few carrot tops, and they are getting leafy, and we are hoping that they will go to seed for next year. We have lots of plans for this summer. We have about 5000 square feet of garden to get ready for planting as soon as the ground thaws. We want to put a fence around the garden, and an addition with bedrooms for the kids on the house. James is considering digging a well. And we need to build a chicken coop and rabbit hutch. It is probably too late to build it for chickens for this summer, but we can build it this summer for chicks next spring. So it looks to be a busy summer. I'll keep you posted.
I am a forty-something happily married Alaskan woman with 4 children. I have struggled with my weight for a long time, and I finally lost 42 pounds and kept it off, thanks to Take Shape For Life. Because it worked so well for me, I am an independent health coach with Take Shape For Life, and I love having the opportunity to help people lose weight and become healthier. I love to knit and I have developed a love of yoga and running.
