It 's that time again to reflect upon this past year, to really think about what worked, what didn't and what changes you may want to implement in the upcoming year.

I am always amazed at how quickly time slips away and how fast a year can really slip through your hands.

Constant and true, time steadily and gently slips away.

As I ponder the past for a moment and take note, I can conclude...

My life is Simple, yet Good and I am Happy!

My mind wanders and delightfully leaps to thoughts of the future ahead.

Here are a few of my simple attainable resolutions I have set for myself this upcoming year :


  • Consolidate seed varieties 
  • Plant the seeds I already have and make minimal seed purchases
  • plant a small strawberry bed
  • Keep better records on garden production
  • Stay on top of succession planting
  • Purchase an All American Pressure Cooker for canning Season
  • Garden with Winter Harvest in mind and install and plant a low tunnel
  • Conquer the compost heap and turn on a regular basis

Family, Home & Finances

  • Better Meal Planning
  • Eat out less
  • $5 Buck Challenge (more on this later)
  • One no spend week a month  to be added to savings (more on this later)
  • Lower our Grocery Budget by $50 a week and consistently add this to savings
In the Coop

  • track egg production
  • track feed and chicken needs expenses

What Resolutions will you be making this year????
