I have really struggled over the winter months, I've felt low and food has not been a priority for me. I tried to track or find some way out but I always fell back. I know I can do this and summer is going to help me. I love fresh salad, veg and fruits and I love to grow them in the garden. Last year gardening was out of the question with a newborn to take care of.
Amelia's first birthday is in a few weeks and I am working hard on getting the garden ready for her to play in. Her Aunty is buying her a swing and Nana and Grandad are buying a Wendy house. We have no idea what we're buying yet but whatever we choose we need the garden safe and fun for Amelia. This means I can get going with some growing too but it has to be on a smaller scale than before. In previous years I have completely filled the garden with all sorts of edible plants and a few flowers. As much as I love flowers I prefer to eat the plants I grow!
As the spring is coming in I find myself craving the tastes of the garden and I am already spending a ridiculous amount on salads and fruits so I'll be ordering loads of seeds tonight.
Amelia loves flowers and points to them saying 'fffff' she really wants to say flower but its too hard for her just yet. She has plenty of words she can say, nana, gadad (grandad), that, tickle tickle, ducky and tick tock. I'm really impressed with how quickly she's catching on with her speech, this week she has been saying marmar for banana which is her favorite fruit. Her healthy habits are great given the choice between fruit and chocolate she picks the fruit everytime.
I'm slowly managing to get more organization to my day, I have several online earnings that I do as often as possible and fitting that in along with exercise and food planning is proving difficult for me. Theoretically I could spend all day with my online earning so I have decided to schedule 1 hour per day for now and see how that goes. Amelia is my priority but I still need to make some cash. (if you want to know details about online earnings, just sparkmail me) I think it's this that has got in my way over the winter period and along with the winter blues I have had difficulties keeping my motivation. I believe the key for me is more organization so I am hoping things will be in order by the end of the month.
I haven't been on Spark as often as I'd like and when I do get on its a brief visit to log something. Sorry I haven't read many blogs lately and I promise to catch up this week, I miss reading about my sparkfriends. I hope everyone is doing well with their goals, have a great week sparkfriends.
