Homesteader, No Longer in the City

After seven years of caring for my mother in town, I'm back on the farm. A homeschool teacher starting the 10th year, my focus on other things has changed, especially after my sojourn in town. While I used to be a full time farmer before the move, now that I'm back I'm content to be a teacher, wife, mother, and small scale homesteader. Teaching is taking up much more of my time now, and I feel that's a worthwhile investment.

My goal for this year: move more, grow more ...

My goal for this year: move more, grow more healthy food, eat intentionally. And mostly, TAKE THE ADVENTURE! Happiness is a choice, success is a choice, not an event. It's not in circumstances, but in what you choose to do with them. Each day is a gift, live it to the fullest!

SparkPoints: 27,743

Fitness Minutes: 12,622

My Goals:
1. For 2008, I've decided to quit complaining about what I can't do, and do what I can!

For 2009, I've decided to take action against those things that are holding me back. Those things I thought I couldn't do, by breaking them down into things I can choose to do.

2010: Life is an adventure, do what you can!

2011: JUST DO IT! This is the year to put together what I've learned, and see progress in the right direction!

2. Long term, I want to be able to hike the Appalachian Trail with my husband.

My Program:
1. Mentally: do things to stimulate the mind. Choose to do one "hard" thing each day, and get it done.

2. Physically:
water
walk more
watch what I eat

3. Spiritually: Christianity was never meant to be a religion, it is a relationship. My ultimate goal is to grow stronger and closer in the relationship with my Lord. To grow in love with Him who is Love.
new memory verse/week
complete reading
through Bible with son
re-learn Hebrew letters

Personal Information:
I love the woods, country living, herbs, fiber arts (spinning, quilts, etc.), hiking, camping, and nature in general.

Other Information:
I heard one definition of success from William Feather, "Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go." Don't give up, even when the going seems slow. Little nuts don't become mighty oaks in a day, or a year, or a decade. But what they lack in speed, they make up for in persistence! So, we're not going to give up!

Thanks for your comments on my blog. It will keep me on the straight and narrow to know that someone else agrees and is doing the same thing. I think he has a point and I certainly have been going against what he suggests, with bad results. I might have a chance to turn things around.

Thanks for taking the time to help me with your comments on my blog. I can tell you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to winter activities! I will make sure I don't back up on my snowshoes! Maybe I'll just stick with a FitBit or SP tracker now that spring is nearly here. We have thunder and lightning with our snow tonight.

Thank you so much for stopping by my sp! I'm still fighting this cold...but meds seem to help deal with it. I'm not going to push it, just relax and get well! At my age, i just don't bounce back quickly... emoticon drinking lots of liquids!
Have a lovely day!
