“Lifestyle Adjustments”

Snowbound Picnic Table

As I look out my kitchen window, watching the huge Charlie Brown snowflakes fall – the snow getting deeper and deeper – I ponder… “Should I go out and shovel or not?” 

I don’t like doing chores more often than I have to.  Pulling out the snow blower and clearing the driveway seems really silly when the wind is still blowing and the snow is still coming down.  I’d rather just wait until it stops and then clean it all up when it’s done. 

Still… it’s getting pretty deep.

I don’t have to go anywhere any more today.

But what if something comes up and I do have to go out?

Well, I do have 4-wheel drive…

Look – the snowplow just went by.  Again.


Snow Snow Snow Snow Snow Snow

And I guess they aren’t called New Year’s Resolutions anymore – they are now New Year’s Lifestyle Adjustments 

I never did New Year’s Resolutions.  If I was asked, my standard answer was that I was going to stop eating liver and burnt toast.  This year I actually wrote out a list of things that I want to change and/or accomplish this year.  I wasn’t planning on the list – it just happened.

I’m not ready to share my list here – there are a few personal things I’d like to tackle… but I’ll be sure to share any milestones I conquer during the year.

The chickens - how did they like the snow? That's whose lifestyle adjustment I initially thought you were talking about :)
