well for most of february we had beautifuls sunny days! then we had a dismal and grey march for the last 3 weeks. april started off beautifully....
but the last 2 weeks have been more grey and dismal! bleck! haven't started ANY seeds and the ground is still too hard for potatoes or onions. one great thing tho is that all of the garlics are popping up! woohoo! and all of the garlics we planted last fall came from our own bulbs - exciting stuff!
more exciting stuff - jambaloney goes in to the licquor store in our big city every 3-4 months. because he is always friendly with the tellers and because he always buys raffle tickets and then tells the seller or teller to put someone else's name, someone in the city who could use whatever is being raffled on - the manager always talks to him by name and always gives him some free stuff. we've gotten free baseball caps, t-shirts, shot glasses, beer glasses and this last trip the manager gave us these 2 cool coors light tocques. and based on the weather for the next week or two - we're still going to be needing them!
kids - don't ya just love poached eggs on spinach - yummeh!
well, try that combination blitzkreiged in the nutri-bullet and it's a whole nuther story. it's lumpy, gaggy mush. but i got to get a variety of nutrients in me on top of all of my juices and smoothies.
kids - remember how many times i have said i love mashed potatoes?
well how about baked potatoes with the middles scooped out, a ton of butter and spinach blitzkreiged in the nutri-bullet and again - more gaggy mush! if i can't bite into a blt sandwich soon - i will scream!
but my gums are healing up really well, one side more than the other because i had less teeth taken out on that one side so i have been doing "sideways" chewing of small pieces of banana and other soft fruits.
here's an awesome sunset from the other night.
and here's some delicious shepherd's pie...another of my favourite foods. that turn into a gloppy, mushy mess when blitzkreiged.
and look at the bass that jambaloney caught last year that we vaccuum-sealed and froze. can you even imagine how delicious that was blitzkreiged with the veg??? ga-rossss! but i force myself to eat it.
and just for your fyi - all of those plates pictured above are jambaloney's dinners and suppers. i wouldn't put you through the horror of seeing my blitzkreiged mush!
well, in backtracking and catching you up in my healing - i came home the first day from having the teeth removed and i was fine. ran around all week like a nut thinking i was healed. and then the big crash came. all of a sudden my jaws and gums were hurting like mad and i had no energy but i think that's normal after a major oral surgery. i'm back to feeling almost human again and well on the mend. and wanting to get some seeds started!
poor jambaloney's been work-work-working on his contract and crab season officially opened last week so all of our friends are back to work in this horrible weather.
hope you all are having a great weekend comin up!
