Yummm....

Have you ever had a meal where you felt like you truly DOVE IN, were fully one with the food, completely engrossed? And when it was over, you simply felt completely nourished?

I have had many such meals lately. A bowl of French onion soup. A Cajun chicken foccaccia sandwich. A Middle Eastern platter from the local diner. A hummus/kale wrap. I can’t say they were necessarily gourmet, and sometimes I didn’t even suspect how much I would simple become LOST in their lusciousness. But this pregnancy thing is making me ravenous in a way I don’t recall being ever before. I am HUNGRY!

I’m grateful that each meal has stayed with me, helped nourish this baby. The cravings have been minimal, and lately most things do sound edible to me. I am struggling with eggs in any form, which seems odd since they are a healthy, local protein that I should embrace. But who knows the ways of the belly...

Don’t worry, there will be SOME regular homesteady posts one of these days. I’m completing a huge work event tomorrow (busybusytiredstressedbusybusy) and I was surprised this non-sanctioned writing even came out. But hey, you can be busy and HUNGRY at the same time very easily…

Congrats! on your new addition.
And whether you choose to find out the sex or not before hand what better surprise could you hope for at the end of nine months? Because however it is---you'll like it! :-D
