First of all I've made a list of all the things that are important for me to do each week and scheduling a day or time for each of them. This will drive me to feel like a slacker when I've missed doing them on a certain day and motivate me. If I don't schedule it - I'll put it off . . . and off . . . and off. I HATE feeling like a slacker so I'm hoping this will work.
For instance, I just simply must get back to my herbal studies and that takes an immense amount of time if you do it right, so I've scheduled a day each week where I MUST study.
Then I've really been trying to spend time identifying the wild plants growing in our neck of the woods and that's somewhat difficult for me - it's just one of those things that I am very nervous about. I certainly don't want to misidentify a plant and end up in the ground myself!!! Funny, huh? Yet, not so funny!! I will just put an asterisk by this one and be sure I forage at least twice a month when I get up extra early in the mornings with a lot of energy.
I also have to finish transferring all of my recipes over to make them more accessible. That's going to have to be a "whenever I can" one.
Meanwhile, I've got a new camera and I have to learn how to use it and learn how to transfer the pics over to the blog. You are probably laughing at that one but I am definitely deficient in the gizmo area. It takes me forever to learn new technology, even as simple as a camera! That's going to have to happen in the next week or so.
Of course, gardening is also coming up, both vegetable and herb, and then there are all the programs I've been tapped to present this year which have to be prepared. Oh geez!!!
Consider this!!!! I do still have to do laundry, clean house, make beds, cook, feed animals, help clean up our property, etc., etc. Ah, the price one pays for living in the country, but it's been our choice. Hubby and I both love it and we'll learn to deal no matter what. So . . . schedule, schedule, schedule it is. Is there any wonder???!!!
