Numnumom & Velveteen, those sound like great easy recipes. My oldest,Nick,would be all over the sweet pear treat! I am a big salmon lover & am always looking for new ways to fix it.Love the garlic too! Another easy recipe we do is Cheese & Apple Bagels, We take sliced bagels & top with a slice of cheddar & Granny Smith apples & broil at maybe 400 degrees. Yum!
Numnumom,Good luck! Here's hoping O is to come. If your temp is still down & you've got the EWCM you probably are pre-O. Your garden sounds great, I was too lazy to fertilize but did lay soil from our compost down initially & buried the occasional banana peel here & there. No,I didn't take anything for my cramps..just the cuddle cure!
I have gotten to the point where I just plant mint in containers! Otherwise it needs to be in a contained area. Oregano can almost spread like that too-but mint is the champion! I have sunflowers that the birds have "planted" we have birdfeeders all over & they drop seeds.I pulled most of them but have 2 nice ones...one yellow,one Mexican Sunflower which has loads of small red-orange flowers.I have a community graden plot -my tomatoes were sauce tomatoes & did O.K but the plot next to mine had out of control tomatoes and we were encouraged to pick some.
I always get so disturbed when I read/hear about children in trouble. I wonder how it somehow isn't picked up on by someone-school or neighbors. I know people like to pick on Hilary Clinton but I totally believe that "It takes a Village to Raise a Child". We all really should do what we can & look out for each others kids. Of course I don't know this particular story, but it seems strange as well as heartbreaking.
Up until a few years ago we had the postage stamp back yard with 8ft high weeds. We did manage a small garden after much work but our house was overlooked by a big apartment which we saw on the news one day as the site of the cities second largest cocaine bust! It wasn't a bad neighborhood either...pretty disconcerting!
Im wishing you lots of luck with your Femera. Does it make you feel differently? Are your temps different or do you have PMS like feelings?
It must be very frustating for you not to know when your period will return. It is strange what a large variation there is. With my 1st 3 my cycles returned around 9 months & I was nursing my 3rd exclusively NO food at all she wouldn't touch it. With my 4th I had a period at 6 weeks then would skip a few months then have another.My friend who has four always went about 2 years before hers started back. I guess a certain hormone level must trigger things.And then of course you can get pregnant without starting back up -ovulating first! Is the Vitex supposed to help your cycle start? What does it do?
How is everyone else doing? I have figured out my "if I were to concieve this month" due date and it would be June 17th the same due date as my first,Nick. So I am of course going to take it as a sign!
Now I am going to play in the attic & sort clothes as we have hit the seson change here. Good luck...reading back to the first page of posts we should have a tester or two or I have got some company in this boring part of my cycle.
