Interests

My love of writing is only a small part of what makes me who I am. Actually if you consider the number of years I’ve been alive it’s rather a recent development. I have heard the saying “a Jack of all trades is a master of none.” I however love my multiple interests in life. It’s helped me relate and understand a multitude of people and circumstances. I also believe it has helped widen my imagination.

But as a result I do struggle to focus on just one thing, especially during the spring, summer and fall when the love of the outdoors sucks me out of my house and away from my computer. I decided that I wanted to be a successful author and that calls for deadlines and lots of work. So I’m learning to better balance all of my interests and responsibilities. I believe I will learn and grow as I better manage my time as a mother, wife, farmer, homesteader, author, etc. and fulfill personal goals that currently show little reward.

Today I thought I would post some pictures of what my day consisted of. Well a small glimpse anyway. No one wants to know about the laundry, dishes etc.

I took my writing just in case I had a moment . . . I did not. But my daughter appreciated the opportunity to doodle on it while she watched her brother’s game.

New chicks that I will be taking up to our property and the house we will be building soon. Aren’t they cute, well at least for another week or so before they get into the awkward teenage stage.

Hope you enjoyed a moment in my life.

Battle Between Two Hobbies

Spring is here and with it the battle between two hobbies. I love working outdoors. During the spring and summer I spend hours and hours working on my yard and garden. Usually that means that writing is put away on a shelf waiting for the day when the rain returns and the cold sets in. This year I don’t want to set my writing aside. I want to continue to imagine and write. I will try and balance both hobbies better this year and see if I have the strength to pull myself inside every now and again to let my mind venture into worlds and troubles unknown.
