Overwhelmed!

Hi everyone! You must all be thinking I’ve dropped off the edge of the Disc 😉 , but I’m still here, and my book series has not been forgotten. It’s just been a very hectic past few months! My new baby is almost two months old. My boyfriend and I are trying to keep up with three other children ranging from ages 4 to 9, plus manage the household and garden. We have several garden beds planted with vegetables and a lot of strawberries. You can never have enough strawberries with kids around! Plus we planted a a bunch of crops in the greenhouse. The day before our little one was born, we got our first four chickens, and about a week later four more and a rooster! Trying to get started with homesteading is a lot of work, especially with a pack of children wreaking havoc!

Hoping everything settles down soon and then I will get back to work on my books. Please don’t give up on me yet!

In the meantime, I hope everyone has a great summer!

First off, who am I? My name is Jessica Urquhart. Writing has always been a hobby of mine, which got its start in middle and highschool, when I'd write short stories for the amusement of my friends and classmates. Currently, I'm working on my first book, my one true love of a story I've been saying I would one day write. Well, that day has come. If you'd care to follow my musings on the adventures and hurdles of writing my first fantasy book, then please, read my blog.

    1. Haha! Thanks, but I’m not sure content is the word I would use. Something between content and seriously stressed. Is there such a word that describes such opposite feelings simultaneously? Lol!

  1. Homesteading is the way to go, Jessica! You have plenty of time for finishing the book and publishing. You have set your priorities in proper order, in my opinion.

    I’m sure none of us will give up on you!

    1. Haha! And the strawberries wont be long now! There’s already fruit on the plants! I can hardly wait. Now we only need a goat or a couple sheep! 😃🐏

      1. Excellent! We have had a peach tree here for about 8 years now and we hope for a good harvest, We did have about 20 chickens also once. One day I’ll settle down in some place where I could do more. By the way, I recommend sheep for good dairy!

      2. I’m jealous that you have a 🍑 🌲. Wish they’d grow well here. The best peaches I’ve had are Georgia peaches. I’ve had goats milk, and sheep’s cheese, but never tried sheep’s milk.

      3. I bet the Georgia Peaches are better than those here in Missouri, because it’s warmer south. You can still enjoy plums in Germany, if I’m not mistaken. Here in the US, I’ve sorely missed figs which we have in abundance where my parents are from. Oh and by the way, you should certainly try goat’s cheese and sheep’s milk!
