It has been a while and I have been very busy with life. I also just turned 42. I have found that since turning 40 I don’t want to celebrate my birthday as much, but want to reflect on where my life is and where I want to go. So I thought that I would put down some goals for the next year and revist them on my 43 birthday. So here goes:
- Expand my gardening. Yes, that seems simple enough, but I am basically learning from scratch. My seasons are completely opposite everyone else in the United States, so I am finishing my growing season currently (may-june), where some of you are just beginning. I would love to get better yields and grow more things (thinking peppers and cauliflower..essentially more cold weather items)
- . Maybe starting a side business. I have been pondering selling microgreens at the local farmers market. I need to order the seeds and see if I can grow it, but it may be a viable way to support my homesteading habit. I am also playing with the idea of selling my eggs to friends and family, but I see potential liability so I must tread wisely.
- Pay off debt. I know this is a big one and maybe it should be number one, but believe me if I spend anymore time thinking about how much debt we have I will go insane. Family issues happen and I am going to determinedly try to get us out of the vicious credit card circle.
I think that this is a good start. But what about you, what are your goals?
