Gonna Ramble

Since this is Crystal Raen's Ramblings, Crystal Raen is gonna ramble. Just mindless drivel so feel free to not read or read, whateva is your preference.

Sometimes I seriously wonder if everything you do in life, every decision, is the wrong one to do, the wrong one to make.

I see my future as it is going to be. I feel dissatisfied.

I envision my future how I would want it be. But see no viable paths to reach that point.

So much has passed me by without me realizing it.

I'm not young any longer. Though I truly want to believe that I am, and that I still have every option available to me that I once had. I am told that I do not.

I want to be sure that I'm not making the same mistakes twice.

But my gut is telling me that I am.

What if I am?

I envision my future as a repeat of the past.

This thought breaks me. It breaks me into pieces.

Push, pull, sigh, cry, scream, laugh.

These are all me. Right now.

Where to go, what to do, how to get there.

No matter what path I take, someone will hurt, a heart will break in some corner.

Will it be yours, or will it be my own.

How do I choose between myself and between you?

Awesome Canning Website

Sorry to have been missing for so long, but I just wanted to stop by and tell you about this neat website that I found:

Canning Information Warehouse

I wanted to be sure to have this website bookmarked somewhere. I am planning on having a garden and preserving my own food once Richie and I get married and have our own little place with a nice little spot for me to grow my own tomatoes, green beans, peppers, onions, garlic, cabbage, lettuce, corn, well you get the idea LOL.

I can't wait to be canning my own salsa and tomato sauce. Yumm, maybe I can even make some spaghetti sauce to can.

So some of you may think that I am crazy for wanting to take all of this on, however, I am very optimistic that this will help my health and will help my future children have an appreciation for food and a knowledge of how foods can affect your body. Too many foods (even health foods) in the supermarkets are laden with chemicals, preservatives, and other non-natural things that have been proven to cause cancer, obesity, addiction, and other health problems.

So here's to the urban movement of urban homesteading and to the canvolution. I want to be a part of this major shift in food awareness!!!
