It's Wednesday. Half-way through the school week. Half-way through the work week if you are lucky enough to have a job. "Hump Day", some people call it.
|Maybe half-way through, maybe.|
Half-way through the drawer organization. And I F'n hate it. If it were another month, I would just throw everything away. But no, it is homesteading month, and I made a commitment to recycle and not make extra trash. What do people do with batteries? And why so I have so many in so many drawers? I don't even know if they work or not. That makes me want to just quit right there. Never fear, I will trudge on.

Half-way through baking bread! Now that is exciting. I finally found a recipe that Lily brought home with her from Baltimore. She spent some time baking rolls this summer with her Grandmom's neighbor, Miss Emily. I am going to see if it will also make a couple baguettes for a potluck I am attending this evening. I was almost finished mixing it when I ran out of flour this morning. So, I quickly ran up to the market and grabbed some more. I hope that pause in mixing doesn't affect the outcome. I don't usually have luck with yeast breads.
|Lunch: spiced quinoa, kale, beets and zucchini.|
That can be a challenge with this blog. When I have set up goals, and then I put them out there for the world to see...and then I don't live up to them. It can create a lot of guilt for me, which leads me down a dark spiral. Feeling bad about anything is one of my go-to emotions, and feeling bad about myself is even easier. Perhaps another life junk drawer item to pitch?
So, while I don't feel like a rock-star in the homesteading department, I am going to slowly pick myself back up and start again. After-all, the month is only half-way over. I still have plenty of time to get back on the homesteading horse and ride. (Sometimes I wonder where this crap in my head comes from?)
