Giving This Another Whirl – Third Time’s the Charm!

And we’re back. Again. Hopefully, I can keep this going this time around. 

So, what’s new? My last post was in 2017. Since then, we’ve moved houses. My daughter became a teenager. I now have two sons on the autism spectrum. I’ve written and published books under a pseudonym. I’ve started pushing (not just using) essential oils. I started teaching Spanish and French again.

I’m sure that many more changes transpired in the three or four years that I failed to update this blog, but that should give you an idea how different of a place I am in now. My ideals remain more or less the same. I’m still a Christian who wishes to glorify God with her life. I’m still hankering after a healthy, natural, and sustainable lifestyle. I’m still leaning on God’s grace to help me through everyday challenges. 

These days, I’m just older, more susceptible to exhaustion and aches. Thankfully, my children are also older and not as demanding of my time and attention or as dependent on my presence as they used to be. That means I can take a minute to look after myself, which I’m finally doing with some consistency after a series of fits and starts.

As you can appreciate, I’ve also dusted off the old blog and posted. Did it take a global pandemic and a nation-wide quarantine order to get me to resume blogging? Nah. I’ve been meaning to take it up again for some time now. I didn’t get any extra free time being forced to stay home. Except for the not going out part, my activities and daily schedule stayed pretty much the same. I think, after posting on my author blog, I remembered to post here as well. It’s as simple as that.

…Except that I had to pause and continue on another day.

What can you expect from me going forward? More of the same, I suppose. I’ll be posting about topics that are relevant to the lifestyle I’m pursuing. It would be a combination of hacks, tips, observations, and ideas about homeschooling, parenting, homemaking, autism, creativity, naturalist activities, spirituality, frugal living, etc.

For the time being, I leave you with this picture.

No, we haven’t moved into our VW Kombi. We’re not living the van life, although Mark and I occasionally talk about doing a bus conversion. This picture is from a camping trip we took in January when 2020 was brand spanking new and we were all so hopeful of what’s to come. As we enter the next half of the year, let’s pray for things to turn around. As we pray, let’s also be grateful for the blessings that persist in spite and because of this immensely trying time. 

On that positive note, I bid you au revoir and hasta la próxima.
