Anniversary

Tomorrow is our wedding anniversary. Hubby got me this long coveted Turkomen ring:

carnelian-ring

I love it.

I love him more, though. And he loves me enough to make sure I look bad-friggen-ass when I am dancing ATS.

Tomorrow is also Earth Day.

Love abounds.

Project

paint
rollers
sponge brushes
paint trays
painters tape
drop cloths
paper mock up

In the works: chalkboard on the homeschool wall, message center, perpetual calendar and art showcases for the three children.

I’ll be posting the progress in the coming days as it’s quite the extended project.

wish me luck.

Right about 10 inches. Suck.

March 31 and snow. There’s not much to say about that. Better now than in May like last year. Still, *sigh*.

watch this first

So I pumped. This is a remarkable feat for me. I managed to pump almost 12 entire ounces of milk from my breasts! YAY ME!

The boy refuses to drink my milk from a bottle.

So as not to let the milk spoil, I put it into not only Zoe’s hot chocolate this morning, but Grace’s and mine as well.

It made a lovely creamy hot chocolate.

“juice, squeezed from a person…”

not exactly, Rachel. But it is tasty like juice. Mine tastes like white chocolate in my opinion. Zoe says that “wahgahwah” tastes like soy milk and orange juice. Rob agrees with the Friends that it tastes like canteloupe juice. Grace says it kind of tastes yummy but she has no opinion about what it tastes like.

So should I pump more, I know my family is going to drink it even if the boy turns his nose up at it out of the bottle. He likes his milk from the source.

what a weekend. tired. only a little worse for the wear. but mostly tired. more later.

I love home.

House and Senate bills to kill all organic farms (FAST track bills in 2 weeks)

Food Safety Modernization Act (HR 875): Criminalization of Organic Farms

Bills are:

House H.R. 875 http://www.govtrack.us/congress/ bill.xpd? bill=h111- 875

Senate S 425 http://www.govtrack.us/congress/ bill.xpd? bill=s111- 425

There is an enormous rush to get this into law within the next 2 weeks before people realize what is happening. Main backer and lobbyist is (guess who) Monsanto.

This Bill will require organic farms to use specific fertilizers and poisonous insect sprays dictated by the newly formed agency to “make sure there is no danger to the public food supply”.

If this passes then NO more heirloom clean seeds will be allowed, only Monsanto genetically altered seeds that are now causing unexpected diseases in humans. Here is a short video on the subject: http://www.voteronpaul.com/newsDetail.php?Food-Safety-Modernization-Act-HR-875-Criminalization-of-Organic-Farms-222

Lets get real folks! This has NOTHING to do with food safety. This is only about TOTAL CONTROL by the feds in our lives. So, get on that phone ASAP and burn up the wires. Get anyone else you can to do the same thing, by sending this message far and wide.

The House and Senate WILL pass this if they are not massively threatened with loss of their position…. . they only fear your voice and your vote.

LET THEM KNOW YOU OPPOSE THESE BILLS: HR 875 and S 425
