Sometimes I wonder if medications would help, but I really don't think I am at that point. I think I need more help in techniques to help me realize my bad days, what leads to them, and how to work through them without eating or lashing out at others. I need to work on having more self confidence. Trusting that I am loved by those around me. Feeling strong in my role as a mother, wife, and friend.
I took time with just my family on the weekend. I caught up on sleep. Then I came home and got to work in my garden and my kitchen. Keeping myself busy with my kids and around the house really does wonders for my mental health and general outlook on life.
So over the last few days the boys and I have picked raspberries and made jam. I have tended to my garden and put up a number of jars of homemade pasta sauce. We have gone for walks and played board games. Watched a movie with my husband. And baked a heap of stuff for a Farmer's Market. I feel good.
|My garden and greenhouse are awesome.|
|I have now canned 15 cups of pasta sauce.|
|Gardening really is good for the soul|
|Some of the bread for a bake sale.|
|Baking and canning really does relieve stress for me!|
