Has your winter been going as planned?
I had visions.
Visions of simmering.
Visions of knitting needles clacking.
Visions of cozy times with tea and library scented books.
Visions of the oil lamps lit at night, and a sense of quiet and calm.
I planned a lot of time in this chair.
I've had glimpses of moments like that - but here it is pert near February.
Time's a running out on me!
There has been something quite different about the sun shining lately - you can feel it stirring the earth back to life. You can see the different slant of the sun in the sky and it's got me thinking about seeds and chicks and the barbecue grill.
I just feel this stirring inside.
I'm excited, and overwhelmed.
If I remember correctly - January jilted me last year too.
Soon - very soon - bootcamp starts and I'm a Coach in training - I'm not even sure what that all will entail - but I'm sure it will take time.
Soon - very soon - it will be time to make a decision for REAL about raising meat birds - and even if I decide not to raise meat birds - I have to decide what to do with my aged flock that nary gives us an egg or two a day. Common sense would say it's time to cull. Glenco says we need a fresh flock cause he ain't feedin' birds for nothin'.
If I do decide to raise meat birds, I have to get the area all ready.
And - well - I have to learn about raising meat birds and choose a breed, and decide on feed - and find a place to butcher them - cause I ain't having that devilment here in my yard!
Soon - very soon - I will have to start building a couple more bee hives and continue praying that the bees I have now will overwinter for another month or two.
I'm trying to come up with a name for my little bee business - and I have to design a label, etc.
Soon - very soon - like next week I'm supposed to be meeting with the Small Business Bureau about starting up a real, legitimate business for the skin serum.
Soon - very soon - I need to begin the projects that I'd planned on finishing this winter!
Today I began my 'action phase' again - to get the last of this blubber off - being able to run a 5K in it's entirety, build my endurance and start getting some real muscles.
When I think of it all - I just really want to crawl back in bed.
I want to pick up the remote and grab a bag of potato chips.
I get a bit overwhelmed.
Nitrous - take me away.
I've got two more toothaches.
Can you believe it?
I don't know what's going on.
One is hurting so bad at the moment that it has it's own heartbeat and the eye over it is twitching.
I can't chew well on either side of my mouth.
I have knots under my jaw bone.
Will I ever get outta debt?
What's overwhelming you today?
