Day 2 of the restarted challenges.
I think I will try to put aside some time pretty soon to work on yearly goals, break them down into monthly goals, and try to break them into weekly goals. I’m not sure about trying to break them down into daily goals. I’ve never done this type of planning before. Anyone out there tried it?
I did not get to either “The Vibration of Exceptional Health” or Drop the Drama. I listened to the next section of the Eliminate Procrastination program. It was just an introduction to tapping, it’s history, use at your own risk, etc.
I thought about switching my weight lifting from today to tomorrow since I knew that I would be moving so much wood today, but I decided that it would set a bad precedent for not making myself stay on track. I did, however, maintain the weights I was already using instead of going any heavier. Speaking of heavier, Santa Claus brought me 8 lb and 10 lb neoprene weights. Loving it!
I posted! Yeah! Seriously, much of the day was spent outside lugging wood and my body is killing me.
We played Minecraft. We are working on buildings that we started a few days ago. Sweet Baby is building a resort. I’m working on a multistory castle.
I got just about all of the frames up today. Let me tell you, repeatedly bending down to screw frames together, carrying boards, and then lifting the frames off the ground and moving them into position on your own is hard. I got Sweet Baby to help me hold frames in place while I secured them and I had to have her help me move the front frame. It has two additional boards since it will have a door put on. This is how far I got today.
This is the back wall. The vertical posts are 6′, making the entire frame 6’3″. The piece at the end has plywood all the way up to the top. The other 2 8′ long sections and the 7.5′ section still need to have the top portion cut to fit.
The short section on the right is the original chicken run attached to the coop so they could get out into the air before I let them out each day. I added the plywood along the bottom because stupid chicken wire rusts out and other animals got in–pigs and goats in the back going after the chicken’s feed, and Moli (our Jack Russell terrier) going through the front trying to get to old duck eggs. Also, I heard barking up on the hill behind us, a corn field, just at sundown and thought that maybe a coyote(s) was moving through. Better safe than sorry! All the baby goats and their mamas are locked up safe in the barn.
The coop is built around a small greenhouse to allow more light into the chicken coop all year.
I went to bed last night about 10:30 and woke up at about 5:50 AM because Lily knocked something over and it made a big “BANG.” I tried to go back to sleep since my alarm was set for 7:15, but was unable to go back to sleep. I used part of that time to do my daily meditation. I took about 25 minutes to get out into the house. I have that planned at only 15 minutes on the schedule so I need to work on getting faster. Not trying to read the news as soon as I wake up will help with that!
