Worst blogger ever.

So I’ve started a new rule. 
I’m going to stop announcing the theme of my next blog before writing it. It gives me an excuse to procrastinate and leads to never getting the blog up and running. I’ve been wanting to write a blog about bumblefoot for months, yet have no bumble foot to take pictures of. Which is a chicken owner win, that I refuse to be upset about. 

But this leads to the problem- I’ve written basically nothing this summer. This is not a good feeling in my stomach. Now my goal is to write, edit and publish a blog once a week. 

We’ve had a pretty intense 6 weeks in the Gillis household. We saved Lucy from a coon attack only to turn around and lose an original, Astrid, to old age and possible liver failure. Then we had a personal tragedy that lasted three plus weeks, that I’m still not really ready to ruminate over. 

Maybe in a future post I’ll share, but right now the idea of posting something so personal and heartbreaking for us as a family is a little raw. 

So, today, this is it. An understanding that I am possibly the worst blogger ever, but a new outlook on how to remedy that. 

Hey, maybe I even surprise myself and get 2 blogs a week every once in a while. 

I know. I’ll try not to get ahead of myself. 

For now, I’m off to make some yummy breakfast bits for my izzybug and contemplate the topic of my next blog. 

Until that time, have a wicked good day.

This is the official website for Gillis Gardens, LLC. Gillis Gardens is a farm, run by myself and my wonderful husband. We believe in biodiversity, organic growing methods and doing things ourselves. I knit, crochet, make jewelry and sew. MrGillis builds, doing everything from our plumbing to our mechanical to our renovations. We are both active members of our little community. We both take care of the plants and animals. He weeds, I harvest. He spreads manure, I plant. We raise multiple breeds of chickens for eggs and meat. We have a herd of Alpacas that we shear every year for their beautiful fiber, which we then have milled into ultra luxurious yarn. We make our own maple syrup, preserves and pickles. We raise bees for honey and herbs for medicine. We also raise pigs for meat and fun. We are the parents of two young children, and consider that our most important job.
