With age, there is wisdom!

Every year for the last few, I’ve started my year out with a list/book of things that needed to be done.  I would get really aggravated with myself if at least half of that list didn’t get completed.

To-Do List for the outdoors

I had lists for indoors, outdoors, spring lists, summer lists, fall lists.

My list of things to do on the farm.

My list of things to do on the farm.I’m not talking about a list of 20-30 things, I’m talking about a notebook with sections for each room in the house, the yard, porch, buildings on the farm, garden, farm work, whatever needs to be done.  

Rather than beat myself up with resolutions and lists this year I’ve changed my tune!  If I’m in the mood, it’ll get done!   My new motto is:

If it gets done, hurrah, if it doesn’t it’ll be there tomorrow!

  1. I made your bread recipe and threw in some herbs, sunflower seeds and some whole wheat flour. I had to make it since your wonderful bread was gobbled up. It came out so delicious especially when you start with a great recipe! Thanks for sharing. Much love me
