Do you ever just not have anything to say. Well, that's me. A lot of things are going on, I just don't know what to say about them. I love blogging so I figured I would just sit down and start typing, thinking maybe something will come out of my ramblings.
Well, first off, it has been HOT around here. Miserably hot. So, what do me and Hubby do this last weekend in all of this heat? We go to a festival. There was an art festival just a little ways down the road from us(1 hr drive) so we thought we would go see it. Hubby, being a redneck and all, actually liked it. Would that make him a cultured redneck? lol. Anyway, going to the art festival got me wanting to start painting again. I use to paint all the time. Oh, and draw. I LOVE to draw!!!!Things just took my time away from me. So I got to thinking. Do we do things because we love them, or because we think we HAVE to do them?
So pondering that thought one morning this weekend as I was sipping a glass of ice tea on my "patio" over looking my pond, I got to wondering,"What is it that I love to do?" Have you ever asked yourself that question? I was getting into some deep thought. And this is how it went.
I don't like to mess with the cattle. They scare me. Oh sure, I like to watch them in the field. I like to feed them across the fence. But, when it comes to actually doing something with them, I don't like it. They are BIG and SCARY. Hubby likes them. So being the nice wife that I am, I let him have all the cattle responsibility. Sure, I'll cook a steak every now and then.lol. But, you get the idea.
Another thing I'm not really wild about is gardening. Now, let me rephrase that, I don't like gardening in the heat. It makes me sick. I kinda like picking the veggies and I like preparing the food. I don't like planting and watering and weeding. But, I like eating the fresh veggies more than I hate gardening so there has to be sacrifices. LOL.
I've come to the conclusion that although I love my three goats, I don't think I want a large herd. Sure, I could make money off of them. Probably some good money. But, money isn't everything. So I'm sticking with a small herd of goats. (I have to have at least some goats in my life. hehehhe)
Next, I have been waiting on getting my house completely done before I "decorate" it. No more. I'm going to start getting containers so that I can have flowers outside my door. I miss flowers. I'm going to start making this house a home. Even though we don't have drywall up on all the walls, I can still hang a picture(or painting) up. I like to make things look good.
Another thing that we did this weekend is go and visit a fellow blogger, Sara at Pumpkin's Patch
. She is such a nice lady! I just loved sitting in her wool house and just talking about everything. (Watch out Sara, you may see more of me than you want. lol.) Her little bottle feeder sheep Lila, is adorable. Oh, and the pictures that Sara can take, are breath taking. She is a woman after my own heart. She is the one that got me addicted to spinning wool. (Another thing that I have put on the back burner because I HAD to do other things first.)
So now that I rambled on and on, the topic of this blog, I guess, is to do things you love. REALLY take a look at the things you do in your everyday life, and see if you REALLY love to do them. I have, and I'm getting to know myself better. (Hi self, how are you?....I'm great! And you?......Oh just trying to find myself.....Well, I've been right here all the time.............I know, that was cheesy. But hey.)
So as I close this post, I ask a question. What is it that YOU truly love to do?
So until next time,
