I started working on my blog again. I’ve added those buttons for social media to the right menu bar. I realize that I don’t blog as much but I still spend a good amount of time on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. My blog is due for a redesign but I need to be able to commit my time to posting more often. Some days, it feels like this blog has no future. I know readership has definitely declined but I am happy that I do keep in touch with some of you on the other sites. I’m still thinking about where this blog will go.
In the meantime…
I’ve been planning my spring seeds and yesterday, I started pre-sprouting my peas for the garden. I think I’ll plant them in a big pot since the ones I have are dwarf plants – up to 18″ only. Most of my planting will be in the stock tanks this year. Trying not to overdo it. But now that we are eating lots more vegetables, we are definitely excited about our own crops. Weather predictions are not good though.
In addition to staying on the primal wagon, I’ve started Crossfit. I don’t think I’ll be super Crossfitter anytime soon but after almost 2 weeks, I think that this is something I will continue to enjoy doing. It’s something that I can share with M too. It helps when you have company. Since he has been at it for almost 3 years, he’s way ahead of me but the fact that I’m out there and trying to do something physically is way more than I could have ever hoped for. My goal is to be stronger. Eating primal has also helped – I am not as sore as I thought I would be and I seem to find the energy to get out there even though my sleep is still fragmented.
S is doing good. He started crawling last week. Not fast gecko crawling yet but soon enough I’m sure. Also, he has two little teeth trying so hard to pop up through his gums. I feel them when he nurses so it’s not long now. He’s eating brown rice, sweet potatoes, bananas, yogurt and whatever scraps I throw his way (read: little pieces from my plate – so far, noodles (from my Din Tai Fung primal cheat meal), kale, beef, carnitas. I think he will be a good eater. Hopefully. He loves to say “bababababa wawawawawa mamamaama dadadadada” but to him, I think it’s not people-specific. I’m taking so many pictures of him but sometimes I still feel like I might miss some important moment. I just hope I remember some of these when he grows older. I don’t want to document the heck out of his life though. He still doesn’t sleep very well. We have had no luck in sleep training so now he shares our bed. I love having him close by and sometimes I think I’ll never remember what it’s like to sleep through the night. Soon enough, I know.
We’re looking forward to a nice St Paddy’s Day dinner with some good friends. We don’t see each other as much these days – work, life and kids do that to you but that means we cherish our time together all the more. So, corned beef, braised cabbage (never boiled!) and beer. Not primal but necessary for the occasion.
If you are still out there and reading da*xiang, say hi, will ya?
