The Carnival I Almost Missed and Other Important News

Well, I may be able to pull off a mean baking day but I’m still forgetful at heart. 🙂

In the midst of preparing for baking day and then spending all day yesterday actually doing it, guess who completely forgot that it was supposed to be the Organic Gardening Carnival today? Oh wait, that would be me!

Because I always prefer to give everyone a heads up about an upcoming carnival the day before it actually happens (just to give you time to prepare your own post if you’re participating), I decided late last night not to run the carnival today. Instead, I took this morning to sleep in (much needed!) and enjoy a sweet and leisurely family time over breakfast (fancy scrambled eggs, sprouted grain toast and OJ- yummy!).

So consider this your one day reminder that the carnival is coming up! Tomorrow, to be exact! In fact, I’ll likely have it up by later tonight, for any early birds who want to get their posts up first.

Can’t remember what the Organic Gardening Carnival is all about? See this post.

In other news…

Tomorrow will be a busy day for me, because not only am I running the carnival but I will be participating in the first every Real Food Twitter Party! Thursday night from 9-11 pm EST (that’s 6-8 pm for us Westcoasters) you will find myself, as well as many other fabulous nourishing bloggers Kelly the Kitchen Kop, Naturally Knocked Up, Kitchen Stewardship, etc.) discussing (what else?) REAL FOOD! We’ll be discussing how we all got started and why we eat the way we do. We’ll definitely be taking questions and doing our best to answer them! If you’re just curious about eating more traditional, nourishing foods or starting out and would like to hear more about how others do it, then definitely join us! There will even be a chance for someone to win a copy of Nourishing Traditions!

If you don’t already, you can follow me on Twitter (@keeperhome). To join in the party, look for the hashtag #realfood, so that you can keep track of the conversation that’s going on. See you there!

Remember that you only have 2 more days to get your entry in for the incredible dehydrator giveaway, and that means my book sale only lasts 2 more days as well!

I hope that this little post is a good reminder that yet again, I do not have it all together. I get caught up in what I’m doing (and just the general chaos of life) and forget all about other important things. I get too busy and too tired. I sleep in. I’m a real mom, just like all of you! 🙂

So just to make me feel better, why don’t you all share with me some of your “finer” moments where you completely forgot about something important!

  1. LOL…I forgot about my health card expiry. Here we have to go get them renewed and a picture taken for it. Mine expired. I called to book an appointment, which were several months away. I booked mine. Then hoped I wouldn’t need my card! Then I missed my appointment. I had to make a new one and wait another while. Thankfully I did not need it in between, and I was able to remember that last time. I am normal too! 🙂

  2. I tried to enter the dehydrater giveaway but there’s no link at the bottom to post comments…help! I’d really like to enter. Thanks!

    1. @LeeAnn, LeeAnn, you can enter by clicking on the blog post, The Last Great Giveaway (it’s the post which linked to the review post). Due to having to put the review on a page without my regular ads, I couldn’t have comments as well. Sorry it’s a bit confusing! I definitely want everyone to get entered!
