Hey gals. I've missed you all. Welcome to the new moms. I am working hard here in our little mountain hide-away, pretty much the sole breadwinner right now as my husband works on his asthma. I pop in an read here and there but have almost no on-line time for pleasure activities. I miss you all.
I am finally putting some of my kefir grains to work on some fruit drink concoctions, inspired by all of you water-kefir gals. I think my husband can use any vitamins or minerals (and liquid too) that he can manage. THis will be an additional fun way for him to consume it.

me three. wow. Lately, I have felt like I could do anything. In fact, I took a big fall on Sunday after bringing in eight wheel barrow loads on firewood. I went out to get some starter wood, sun wasn't up yet, hit an icy stair and flew head first down the railroad tie stairs. My shin and chin bore the brunt of the fall. I took an inventory, had all of my teeth and limbs, got up and got the starter wood and went to the chiro the next day. My reaction was definitely part of this new me -- I was amazed at my body's musculature in being able to recover so easily. I didn't cry, was a bit shaken at first, and then a bit proud. It's pretty cool.
