So I have not been updating regularly at all. And while I know that nobody reads this blog, it kind of makes me sad that I can’t be consistent. So I am going to try something new. I will be posting three times a week, Monday, Wednesday, Friday. I might occasionally post other days, but I will make a real effort to post those three days consistently.

Mondays will be homestead items. This will be about gardening, chickens, preserving food, etc.

Wednesdays will be homeschool items. I’ll talk about what we’re learning, curriculum choices, field trips, etc.

Fridays I haven’t decided yet. If it was about 3 or 4 years ago (maybe even only two years ago) I would probably post items about natural birth, breastfeeding, etc. But I’m not as interested or involved in that community as I was then. I became certified as a doula immediately after the conception of my son 2 years ago, and I am coming up on my renewal date a year from now. I have no desire to pursue renewal at all. I haven’t done a single birth since then. This is a little surreal for me, considering how much I felt that it was my life’s calling to be a midwife back then. But I am just too full of things now to worry about it. Perhaps in a few years . . .

Anyhow, I don’t have a particular theme nailed down for Friday’s posts. I might occasionally write about birth, but I’ll more likely write about family or book reviews or sewing.

So this post is on a Tuesday,  and tomorrow I hope to have a post up on school.
