Windswept Acres

I'm a city girl turned country dweller, with more miles on me than I care to admit. I share my life with my writer husband, five dogs -- occasionally seven -- a cat and an even dozen Nubian milk goats. Chickens have arrived and are nicely settled in our poultry yards. (They think they're free-range, and have started laying eggs, hiding them in the old scrap wood pile.)

I'm a city girl turned country dweller, with more miles on me than I care to admit. I share my life with my writer husband, five dogs -- occasionally seven -- a cat and an even dozen Nubian milk goats. Chickens have arrived and are nicely settled in our poultry yards. (They think they're free-range, and have started laying eggs, hiding them in the old scrap wood pile.)

Last year was supposed to be spent finishing up projects and cleaning the property, but was derailed by some heart irregularities. We did expand the goat yard and build an extension on the barn to accommodate the additional goats.

2015 will be a time of finishing the root cellar, clearing along the fence line and cleaning out the storage shed. If time and energy permit, I'd also like to turn the wasted space where the water heater used to live into a towel closet in the bathroom.

I don't do well with formal exercise programs, partly due to being so far from an affordable gym, so work is my "exercise plan."

In order to succeed, you must first be willing to fail.
~Anonymous~

Do you best each and every day but don't be afraid to reach for your dreams, you can't make it happen if you don't ever try.

Here is to a Fabulous Friday.

"Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary greatly in their abilities. They vary in their desires to reach their potential."

- John Maxwell

Let us all determine what we want and focus on making it happen.

“What you eat in private will show up in public.” ~Unknown

For those who think that sneaking food really doesn't matter, this is the truth spelled out for them!

Have a Wonderful Wednesday.

Do you choose to simply know the path, or do you choose to walk it?

We fail because we don't strike the iron while it's hot. We don't take immediate action toward achieving what we want. We decide to wait until tomorrow, or next week, or even next month.

It comes down to a simple question: what do you want out of life, and what are you willing to do to get it?

All great questions that we need to ask ourselves so that we can reach our goals. We need to not be our own worst enemy!

Have a Sparktacular week.
Pat

Easter is the gift...

Easter is the gift of HOPE
Easter is the gift of PEACE
Easter is the gift of LOVE
Let us rejoice in Him,
Who gives them all.

May God bless you at Easter,
And keep you all year through.
May God give you all the faith it takes,
To make your dreams come true.
May His love and wisdom always help,
To guide you on your way.
May His light shine down upon you now,
To bless your Easter Day.

Author Unknown


Wishing you a wonderful, joyous Easter
Pat
