good thinking with the smoothies--i really need to make yogurt today! i've been putting it off and putting it off.

yay for gardens! what are you growing?
Well, I've got my herbs going - basil, thyme, sage, oregano, lavender, mint, parsley and rosemary. Then I'll do carrots, onions, radish, lettuce, tomatoes, spinach and collards. I'm a little late getting started, but the weather has been off, so it feels like Spring is just starting. Oh yeah, and my strawberries are perking up, too. Here's a pic of Scarlet in with the oregano and strawberries. And just another cute one.

Oh yeah, glad it worked!!!

my poor poor laptop . So while Desmond was wandering around upstairs before nap time, I stepped on my laptop and heard it go *crack*, so not a sound I wanted to hear. When I turned it on after he was asleep he has a huge spiderweb in the top corner and a nice long line through the rest of the screen. A new laptop really isn't in the budget either, so I think I'm going to have to live with it for 6 months to a year, sigh. Fortunately i only use this computer for surfing, but I can already tell it is going to be annoying.

My hinges just broke, so I have to hold up the screen. Needless to say, I'm on less and can't NAK anymore

It sucks bc I have so many things I want/need to do on it and much less time.

We got some (very expensive, non-organic) freeze dried apples, bananas and strawberries, and they were a big hit with all the kids (this is great as dd1 is *the fussiest* eater).

I remember a little while ago, a bunch of you were getting freeze dried food for the babies... where did you order it from?
Thx!

I get freeze dried food from just tomatoes, DS loves their bananas, strawberries, apples, peaches, corn, raspberries and blueberries.

We use just tomatoes too. We get them either on line or at whole foods when we make a trip to the big city.

I get Just Tomatoes through a coop, so cheaper for me
I can send you the link to join if you want. I think Kris and Anika are members too.

Maximom: cute cute pictures of Scarlet!!! I love the one on the chair

Tabrizia: hope the computer is working ok at least. Sucks to have to buy something new just cause of a stupid accident.

So - Scarlet is absolutely adorable, and I am completely jealous of your strawberries! They are my favorite, and I have had zero luck in growing them. Yummy!

If I could figure out how to multi-quote, I would, but arismomkoofie, our hinges broke not long ago, and it was only about $35 to fix it at our local computer place. May be higher somewhere else, but might be worth calling around.

Tabrizia, thanks for the diaper link. I kept typing diaper"wrappers", but finally figured out how to spell!

If anyone would like to share the secret of multi-quoting, I would be forever grateful.

DH wanted me to ask where because he can't find parts even for under $200... The flappy screen is killing me - I type with only my right hand and hold up the screen with my left :

Abby is a walkin' fool now. She just loves it and rarely crawls. I like it, but the mobility is getting to her head and she is into everything! We're still on the market, so we can do very little babyproofing...

The link would be great! Thanks!

Sorry to hear about all the injured laptops. Chloe is always crawling under the pc desk and yanking on wires so I feel like it's only a matter of time until we have our own damaged computer...

Dh says he'll look tomorrow, he thinks he still has their card (if not I'll find it). $200 seems high unless it's a different problem. It's ridiculous how much everything costs! On ours the screen just wouldn't stand up. We used books to prop it up - not very useful! I'll let you know.

Hi friends!

I buy one 'just tomoatoes' container at the market per week and forbid myself from eating it because it's so pricey. Ion's getting to where he can eat one in a few days. He loves the peas and strawberries the best. He keeps trying to get me to buy the pomegranate (putting it on the counter or running around with it) but it is a million dollars for a half-tub!

My boy has been sick all week I'm starting to feel bad for myself more than for him. It's been 4 days of only a couple hours sleep. He's flopping all over the place trying to find a way to sleep and still breathe. This morning he was laying between my legs like chair. I thought he was Gaea! Kitties won't sleep in our room because of all the wiggling and crying. The mucous is making him vomit. And he's still covered in bites. Ugh.
I'm pretty proud that I brought him to the doctor twice on my own by foot/cab/bus. Kam couldn't get off work.

Here are words that people who aren't me say Ion can say:
this
that
fish
kitty
cat
Gaea
Klaus
yes/yeah
Beka
bye
dad/dadad/dadadaddy

his new thing is taking us by the hand and taking us where he wants us to go, mostly outside

Thanks! It might be because the part of both of my hinges that cracked are part of the cover of the laptop. I'm thinking that I might try to find some sort of laptop stand that has a back, which would probably be cheaper than fixing it. At some point I need a new laptop. This one is *gasp* four years old. I hate the short lifespan of a laptop.

Abby has a fever. I gave her Tylenol because tonight was Ari's Pre-K graduation and I wanted her to be comfortable, but I'm going to let it return tonight and see how it goes.

All these sick kiddos!!! :
Romi is one of them, but what else is new? I swear my antibodies must uber weak cause my nursing her doesn't seem to help her at all :

We have a life insurance broker coming over in 30 minutes... I never knew life insurance was so complicated. I thought I could just buy it over the phone, but no, the have to come over and talk to you about the different products. I hope he won't try and sell us something, I hate that. I just want to cover the cost of the house in case one of us dies so the other one doesn't lose the house...

I played hookie from work today and went to look at electric bikes I've been doing some freelance translating on the side and saving that money cause I really want one and they're about 1200$ (I want one that folds). I'm gonna send dh to try them out before buying, but how cool would it be to ride to work instead of taking the metro??
This is the one I want

Abby is now in her baby swing! All she wants is to lay down - on me. Her temp is about 101 and I am sweating 'cause she is so hot! So... I pulled out the old swing. She is a bit too big, but seems to enjoy is as a change of pace.

just poppin in quick to say we (k, z, best friend and i) had an awful day. we drove 1.5 hours to burlington to get a bike for me i called ahead and was told they had the bike i wanted. we got there and they didn't. they didn't even have a bike the size i wanted for me to try out!!!??? grrrr. then we thought we'd head to a cool natural parenting store 1/2 hour away and got super lost. it was closed. didn't want to drive back through the city to eat (even though we were starving and the kids had spent hours in the car) so we tried to detour around btown and headed halfway home to my fave restaurant (open only fridays and saturdays). closed 2 days a year for "maintenance" and this was one!? kaylo started to cry...not a toddler cry but a very sad cry. we managed to find an ok place to eat but it was already 8pm and we were so tired and hungry. anyway...we were so bummed... (did i mention my bf drove 1.5 just to get to my house to make this trip and now she is driving home

doudat--cool bike! and crazy about the insurance...we need to get some too b/c we're buying our house and i'd like coverage in case something happened to one of us.

hanno--poor ion!! i hope he feels better soon!!! he's talking a lot now--zenon has regressed--he doesn't say anything now.

Abby felt better this am, but we were up for a lot of the night :

Her fever is now going up and down between 99 and 101, but I can tell she is feeling a bit better. It's so hot outside we are doomed to stay in today.

She just climbed in the baby swing by herself, so it seems she wanted to swing! she's munching on breakfast (Gorilla Munch) and drinking water now.

those are great pictures! i love the chickens all around too.
Well, we're back to rain, rain, rain. We had a great week with sunshine and I was going gangbusters on building my patio and garden, then just rain and cool. Good for strawberries and everything else green around here, but I just want some sun so I can get to work!

Sad morning - some critter got into our turkey pen and killed/ate 7 of them!!!! What a mess. We'll be setting a raccoon trap tonight. Dh is off to the feed store to pick up some more turkeys.

Scarlet's new favorite thing is putting Max's Bob the Builder tool belt and hat and walking around with a screwdriver or hammer, then sings "ba, ba, ba" - too funny!

Here's a couple from last week- sans toolbelt - but still cute! Baby Bob 1 and Baby Bob 2

Ooh, poor kitties and chickens...

Abby just spied a clean dipe on the desk and brought it to me. I laid it down and put her on top and she just smiled at me as I changed her. A big change from the crying I usually get! I'm going to lave dipes out more often

How cute! Hope she's still on the road to recovery, and feeling better.

I found the comp info, but after talking to dh, he said ours was just a rod that had to be replaced, so I don't think it would be any cheaper. Sorry to get your hopes up!
