I was going to take a day off today, but I thought I’d just type some random stuff here instead.
If you hate random stuff, feel free to take a day off of reading my blog.
I’ve been a little behind with my blogging this week because Mr. FG has been home sick. I love having him home, but I wish he was home for a happier reason.
I’m enjoying not having to get up super early or go to bed super early. But of course, not being up early means that my usual blogging time is gone.
Mr. FG showed me how to make form emails in Outlook so now I can quickly respond to some blog related emails. I have one for advertising requests and guest post requests, and I even have a politely worded response to send to people who are pea-brained enough to think that I would like to advertise for stuff like payday loans.
I’m excited because this will save me from retyping and retyping the same old stuff. Yay!
On a related note, I never cease to be amazed at how people will click on the Contact page on my blog (which clearly says that I don’t accept guest posts from people representing companies) and then email me asking if I do.
I am also amazed at how many typos and grammar errors are usually in those emails, especially when they’re from someone who apparently makes their living by writing.
Then again, I wrote yesterday that I bought expensive sheets when I really meant to say that I bought INexpensive sheets.
Then again, I’ve never claimed to be a professional. Or detail-oriented.
We’ve been eating a LOT of blueberries.
I also froze a bunch and made a batch of blueberry jam. Interestingly enough, I read in the packet that crushed fruit produces better, thicker jam than fruit processed in the food processor. I crushed my blueberries by hand, and the jam does seem to be thicker this time.
Blueberries are sort of hard to crush, but I think strawberries and raspberries and peaches would be easier.
Every single person in our family has gotten this yucky cold so far (the kids are mostly recuperated now), but I haven’t caught it.
I’m feeling a little doomed, though, considering that I sleep with one of the sickies.
Go, immune system, go!
I went to the gym yesterday after not having gone for almost a month (bad me!). I did the weight circuit, and then when I came home and was all sweaty and disgusting, I decided to just go outside and work on spreading some of our wood chip pile into beds in the yard.
Might as well get really dirty when you’re sort of dirty, I say.
I loaded up the wheelbarrow multiple times, but it’s shocking how small of a dent I made in the wood chip pile.
What is not shocking is that I’m pretty sore today. I expect to feel even worse tomorrow…good old second day soreness.
Mr. FG found out that someone keeps bees only a few miles from our house and sells the honey. I’m going to stop by and buy some from him this morning. I’m pretty sure that’ll count as local food.
I think that’s all I have to say today.
Tomorrow, I should have something more coherent in this space, provided that I’m not too sore to get out of bed.
