Bees and a hive.
My chickens to be here and their house to be finished.
2 less plum trees in my backyard. (Yes, Bill, you can have ’em.)
The time and money to do/get these things and to be able to play with them all day.
Nice weather, a 3 day weekend, and no plans.
To see this smile all day every day.
I have so many desires. So much that I feel would make my life better, make me a better person, teach my children more, help me get closer to my goal of maximum sustainability.
I have work to do. Lots of work to do at home and TONS to do every day at my job.
This has been a very challenging month for me, and I don’t see an end to the madness until mid May. I am running 2 businesses, trying to run a family, waiting to hear back about a new job for my husband, HE’S starting a home based side business, and I’m coordinating a Career Day for 180 Middle School students and their parents. Plus needing to get my garden in within the next two weekends.
I guess what I want most of all is a quiet place for my thoughts to go, an early morning cup of coffee on my porch on a sunny day, watching my garden grow with a clean house and BBQ meals planned all weekend.
And really, this weekend I get to seed/plant swap with Carri, play with my kids all day Saturday, the garden will get closer to being planted, and the coop will probably get finished. Baby Steps.
My “wants” really changed as I started thinking this through.
I guess you have to start somewhere.
