Psalm 27:4 "One thing have I desired; that will I seek after. That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life."

One Week In

One week in to 2016 and I’m discovering new flaws in myself. 😀  I LOVE making goals, collecting ideas and then throwing up my hands at the overwhelment!   I know, not a word.  I’m failing miserably at the 365 Declutter challenge – I have a donation spot and I bought a pretty notebook to set up a household management book, but that’s as far as I got.  I did watch the budget videos and I wrote a new budget that actually works with our income!  It’s is getting very hard not to run off to the store to buy the things we “need” before the next paycheck comes.  I’m out of unrefined coconut oil (for my coffee), moisturizer for my dry face and lotion for my itchy dry skin.  Luke is out of green beans and Kurt is out of chicken nuggets!  I’m amazed at how lazy I’ve gotten at getting by.  I did find a simple moisturizer recipe and just need to take the time to make it.  I’m getting by with coconut oil for now.

I did undecorate the house yesterday, but it made me so sad!  I had to force myself to keep going.  Motivated by the fact that Karra was coming home from NC and I had promised that all of the Christmas stuff would be down.  It took ALL DAY LONG!  Why does it take twice as long to put away as it does to get out?  I also had to scrub the wall above the stove cabinets because it was covered in black stuff and dust.  There is no denying any longer that I need to paint my walls.  We’ll see how that goes in the next few months.

It’s raining here again with just a few scattered little flakes thrown in to tease me.  Maybe we’ll see a little snow next week.  Hopefully it warms up enough to melt all of the ice from the rubber water trough.  Kurt put one of the kittens on the frozen trough yesterday to chase ice pieces.  She had a ball!  Her sister stayed outside the trough and tried to catch her tail!!

And That’s What’s Happening on the Hobby Farm.
