Happy Father’s Day!! I feel blessed to have a husband, father, father-in-law and grandfather in my life.
This is our first week of summer break with no set schedule. We still have plenty going on, like doctors appointments, farmer’s market, milk pick up and even a special trip to the zoo! I must admit that I’m really looking forward to the weekend. I get a pregnancy massage!!
I’m also excited today because I am at 30 weeks (though baby is measuring over 31 already)! I’m down to check ups every two weeks. We almost have everything set for baby. Most likely tonight will be the big bedroom switch for my little guy, too. Lots of change. But it’s very exciting.
Last week I was fortunate enough to get a half dozen duck eggs. I’m trying to savor them and not eat them all in a few days. I’m still focusing on third trimester nutrients and making sure I eat seafood a few times a week in addition to drinking plenty of raw milk.
I made a lot of Father’s Day goodies last week. If you missed them check out the chocolate chunk cookies and strawberry rhubarb cheesecake. I also have a couple more recipes coming. This week I might make some kind of pie. We still have a lot of rhubarb in our garden, so most likely strawberry rhubarb. I also need to make a new batch of graham crackers.
This week I might start stocking up on strawberries. It’s hard to believe preserving season is starting. I don’t think I’ll be up for strawberry picking myself this year, but hopefully my husband and kids can get a lot for us.
