Mike and I have been working at the condo and getting a lot done. It's exciting seeing it come together. We have "before" pictures and the changes are extreme. He's there now for a little while, but will head home early afternoon toting our yearly pizza. I don't usually eat wheat or dairy products, but during this holiday season I've been weaker than usual and succumbed to way too much of it - and sugar. I feel as though my innards have turned into a ghastly mushy glue. I start my detox in a week and figure now is the time for pizza. Mike says it's the best he's ever had, so we'll see. It will at least be a vegetarian pizza!
2008 is just around the corner... and we've owned our little farm for a bit more than a year now. We have our fingers crossed that when we finish remodeling the condo, we can sell it. If that happens, we can start staying at the farm on weekends (Friday night until Sunday afternoon) and start working there. That can't happen 'til we sell the condo though. One thing at at time...
Or, as my mother used to say, "Patience is a virtue." I heard that a lot growing up.
Regarding new year resolutions, I rather like this quote by Anais Nin: "I made no resolutions for the New Year. The habit of making plans, of criticizing, sanctioning and molding my life, is too much of a daily event for me." I try to stay on top of things daily too (though I try to keep the criticism part at a minimum), so don't see much point in some sweeping yearly plan.
And, speaking of Anais Nin (who I think was a very interesting woman), I like a lot of quotes from her, including this one: "Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the actions stems the dreams again; and this interdependence produces the highest form of living."
Our farm is our dream, and day by day it is turning into "the reality of action."
