Yesterday I went to get new duck eggs to hatch, expecting to get 15 eggs. Instead, I got 20 of them, at a more than 100% discount! My "egg dealer" was so nice, he sold me the eggs for about 1 dollar each. Where I am, they usually sell for the equivalent of about 3 … Continue reading Stop Climbing The Same Mountain Over And Over Again!
Today I am getting my second set of duck eggs to hatch. Yes, I'm screaming inside, of excitement! Almost as nervous as the first time, and almost as worried I'll mess up. Last time, I managed to hatch 10 out of 15 ducklings (13 fertilized), so it's not that I'm not confident in my hatching … Continue reading I Must Not Be Fooled
If you can't find what motivates you, start with removing everything that demotivates you. Example: I woke up at 6:30 today, motivated to go and feed my ducklings, but I skipped changing their bedding (saved for later) because I feel strongly against the door to the chicken house, where I get new bedding. Because of … Continue reading Excluding and Refining: In Business and Life
I had extravagant plans for the farm this year. Don't get me wrong, I still do, but I've come to realize that I can't fulfill all of my plans for the year. It's not giving up, simply seeing things as they are, and learning. When I planned my market garden, I didn't realize how much … Continue reading Things Did Not Go As Planned
So, this is probably the case for anything, and that's why this post is relevant to anyone. Perhaps the valuable lessons I've learned can be helpful for you as well, if nothing else than as a gentle reminder. Recently, I moved to a small farm, and as the season is finally beginning, things are happening. … Continue reading The constant tweaking and adjusting
Today I got 2 new subscribers on my fitness channel. My initial reaction was “yay!!”, but then… probably just a few minutes later, I felt negative emotions creeping up to the surface. Why? Where did they come from? And what were they about? I was filming my 50 subs splits special when I started thinking … Continue reading Identifying And Getting Through Psychological Barriers + Farm Updates
Ever since my dog died two years ago, I’ve been longing to get a new dog, just like anyone else would. I’ve been on the lookout, been thinking a lot about it. But… even though I found one yesterday - a cute little yorkie that I could breed with - the dictator of this house … Continue reading Sadness, But Moving Forward
Today I tried one of Caroline Girvan’s calisthenics workouts. It was my first time trying one of her workouts, and it was very good, very suitable for me. The moves were great. The only thing I struggled with was the arm exercises, but that’s good, as I am trying to strengthen my arms, my biggest … Continue reading 22 March
I have now cleaned out almost everything in our place. Lots of boxes and bags, carried out mostly by me. Lots of books. Too many. All in Danish. We'll probably sell the books to the many Danish people around here. Hopefully. Also found a locked suitcase. Seems empty and useful enough, but locked by a … Continue reading Cleaned Out and Crash.
Starting a farm isn’t easy, they say. It’s hard work, they say. And that’s probably true, but I haven’t even gotten to that part yet. My struggles lie in getting started in the first place. Why? Because I don’t know where to start. On my own, starting is a very desolate thing. As a full … Continue reading A stumbling start, but still a start…
