I haven’t been blogging as of late. Or much of anything else beyond basic everyday stuff. It’s hard to get motivated when you’re depressed. Why am I depressed?
Well first off, because I’m wired that way. I’ve always been anxious, and somewhere along the line I added the joy of depression too. Second, money. I’ve always been worried about money. We are deferring our mortgage as the Husband is out of work, and I worry about how the hell we are going to pay that back. Third, I gained all of the weight I lost pre-pandemic. Fourth, terribly worried about the election. This administration is one horror after another. Blah.
But, I continue to try every day to break out of the funk. I take my medicine. By counting calories, I dropped the extra weight. I still have a ways to go, but at least I’m back to where I was. I need to exercise more – even just walking laps around the property. And I need to get back to projects (other than playing Fortnite and sleeping). This weekend we had a great haul from the farmer’s market and had some produce to process. We still have some to do today.
Yesterday we canned some tomatoes.
And made tomato paste,
We also processed corn. Blanched and packed in vacu-seal, then frozen. We started pickling jalapeños- but ran out of time. We roasted eggplant, and I’ll make babaganoush.
And Lou and the chickens are happy and cute.
