As 2014 rolls to a stop...

here are some things that I will definitely carry over into 2015.

1.  My garden and it's dehydrated, canned, and frozen produce.  I cannot WAIT to get back into that garden.  I was at Farm and Fleet the day after Christmas and they already have the seed display up! But, a big sign read, "not for sale".... yet....

2.  Clean eating.  An old schoolmate, Fitastic Mom Amy Williams, challenged me to a 5 day clean eating challenge via Facebook last November, and I found that after 5 days of no processed foods and junk, I really felt a lot better (and
my clothes fit better, too).  I've tried to stick to it a lot, but the holidays and all that goes along with them has me back to feeling bloated and sluggish.  As we speak, I'm making a pot of homemade chicken noodle soup to start getting us back on track.  Please notice a slice of dehydrated red pepper and a chunk of dehydrated tomato floating in the most delicious, clean, and filling chicken noodle soup I've ever tasted!  Also, check out Amy by clicking on her name above!

3.  I need my sleep.  Actually, we all do.  This first semester was a whirlwind.  We managed to be on time everywhere we needed to go, we only forgot our binder (full of 8th grade homework, not to name names or anything) once, and we stayed healthy.  So, for me, starting January 4th, it's back to setting the alarm clock for 5:30am and going to bed by 9:30pm.  I do a pretty good job of making sure that the kids are in bed at a decent time each night, but we've been lazy the last week and a half!  You know what they say, "If you're going to soar with the eagles, you can't hoot with the owls!"

Happy New Year, everyone!

So glad you have come around to gardening. Didn't think I'd ever live to see it after making you help me all those years as a teenager!!
