I have had a crazy week this week. My mom has been really ill and in the hospital for the past couple of weeks. I even went down to see her in Austin for a few days last week. Those things are really hard for me to write about, since I really don’t want sympathy from anyone. For some reason people feeling sorry for me always makes me feel worse. With all of this going on, it has made me a little depressed over the past few days. I am trying to work out of it. We now have good news she will hopefully be on her way home on Monday. I do feel a lot better today with this good news!
I tried to make homemade yogurt with a recipe I found. However, it was a complete fail. It wasn’t the recipes fault, but I didn’t follow instructions. I tried to see if it would work anyway, but no. I was really looking forward to sharing this recipe with you, but I will have to wait until next week. Now I know not to add all the ingredients at the beginning, but wait until the end. Oh well live and learn. We were really looking forward to having homemade organic yogurt at our house for half the cost.
