Let me apologize for my infrequent posting for the last few weeks. I am having trouble fitting everything I want to do into my day!
So you will understand, I thought I would give you a recap of what I have been doing. This picture sums up part of it.
I went to the range with some of my friends from church and one of them snapped this picture. I didn't know she did it until I heard her laughing behind me! Both she and I want to start competition shooting this year. Well, that won't happen without practice! Starting competitive shooting is one of my personal goals this year, I have really improved my one handed shooting in just a few short months. (The picture above is of me shooting with my weak hand/non dominant eye.) I believe I will be ready to start by summer!
I also have been taking classes 7 times a week. (Not seven days a week, seven times a week, I don't go on Sunday or Friday. To make up the difference, I go for 2 hours on Wednesday and Saturday.) What am I taking? Fun stuff! Tap dancing, hula dancing and zumba! I really like them all. However, I am finding that it doesn't leave a lot of time for other things, like blogging.
Normally, this time of year is when I get lots of projects to work on. (Many of our clients start new initiatives in January.) This year, I decided not to work for a few months. Instead I wanted to do things for me. (This was another personal goal I had this year.)
I don't expect to keep my heavy schedule up for very long. When summer weather comes in April, it will be time to turn a lot of my attention to the garden, so something will have to go! I am not sure yet what it will be, but I have plenty of time to decide.
Other than that, the rest of my time is taken up with normal homesteading chores: making yogurt, cheese, sour cream and other dairy products on a weekly basis; the daily need to clean the floors; grinding my own flour; caring for all my plants twice a week; and of course, caring/cooking for the princess every day! (Just to mention a few!) These past few weeks I find myself wondering where the time goes!
Please indulge me for a few more weeks if I don't post on a regular basis!
