I haven't posted in a while since taking the much welcome winter break from the garden activities. I saved only a few types of seeds since some of those I was trying to "dry" outside got moldy from the ambient humidity.
Since then we have had a lot of adventures and a few more hard situations. In October we spent our first vacation more than an hour away from the hospital all the way in LA. We got some quality time with family and a few friends. Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, and the beach in LA with Tim's parents and a friend I met in the Northwest. Shoshana still talks about the "Berry Farm" and how she's going go those rides again. Then we spent a few days in San Diego with one of Tim's groomsmen and his very pregnant wife. The girls adored Sea World!
Late in the trip we made a public announcement:
And in December found out it was a boy! Hello, dear Judah!
Also in December we went to a Christmas Lights event at Warm Beach and played some late games with family and friends. Then for New Year's Eve we went a little farther north to celebrate with those same friends at their house. And they had a big swing. Shoshana loved it, of course.
This pregnancy has been pretty rough already so my activities with the garden may be a little scaled back this spring. But don't worry, it's all for a good cause! Also, we are looking to sell our house/property to a developer. We are looking for a place that is either dirt cheap so we can build our own place or affordable but permanent residence sort of a thing. Three bedrooms, nice kitchen, play room, and property enough for my animals and garden are a must.
