A quick update

Sorry I haven’t been posting lately, but I have been having a life.

Came home from Christmas in the mountains to the news that Sean had about a week to live, he passed away peacefully on the second of January.

As I was pretty upset at the time and work was a little thin Puppy decided that a house project was in order lest I sit at home and get depressed, so we started decorating both the livingroom and kitchen, both projects are still ongoing.

Somewhere in the midst I got a wonderful surprise gift from a blogger, you’ll see it soon.

The orchard continues to develop. This weekend we picked up a peach tree, and recently we did a grafting workshop so we also have grafted a plum on to the peach and a Black Mission fig on to our fig not to mention a Reed avocado on to our generic avocado.

I’ve also been journaling like a demon. I’m using The Sacred Journey journal and it has been working real well for me. I have also been keeping a 12 Secrets written journal, but hopefully this week I will be able to post something. Sorry I haven’t been here lately, I just didn’t feel like writing in public much.

Today is Chinese New Year and I decided this would be my new years celebration given everything else that has been going on.

Today is also my first day with a new class. One of the teachers I know just went on maternity leave so I have her little darlings for a few months, but more about that later!

    So glad you posted again! Sorry to hear about Sean. You are both in my thoughts.
    Hope the little darlings are just that, darling!

    I am so glad you are back! But I am so sorry to hear about Sean. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Emma has decided that she wants to plant a pear tree and rosebush in our new home, whichever one we get, so I think this spring and summer we will be busy planting! I am also going to start a compost pile. I’ve been reading up on sustainable gardening, and it is quite interesting.
