New Year Decisions

Do you ever go back and forth on a decision or an idea and still don’t reach a final decision?


Sometimes Edgar gets stuck in the same position. He’s the only dog we’ve had that liked heights and uses the coffee table more than we do. Sometimes he gets stuck, not comfortable going on to the couch and yet doesn’t feel safe to back up either.

I’ve been in that position many, many times.

How do we deal with such situations? Is it better to push on or better to go back? Or is it best to just stop midway and wait. Or a fourth choice, just get off. Off the couch, the table and the in-between, step down on the floor! Which is best? Who knows?

God does. Ask, seek, knock. 2014 is a new beginning. Let’s go back to an old, tried and true resource.

On a lighter note, I had a ‘movie star’ come visit me last week –


She brought a friend for Edgar.


Another cold front has come in – wind chill of 2 this morning at 6:00.  Today’s temps are 33/19. Normal temp is mid 50’s. I think planting the garden will be delayed this year. Decision made!


About Debbie

I'm a 53 yo homesteader/homemaker who is obsessively in love with my God, my husband and my life. I don't know anything about blogging and resisted it for years now. I am good at rambling, which is probably the old fashioned way to say blogging anyway so I'll struggle on and see where this goes. My husband, John, and I live on a 55 acre homestead in NE Texas where we raise Dwarf Nigerian Milk Goats, laying hens, guinea, cats and 3 dogs. We try to live as self-sufficiently as possible, raising organic veggies and meat chickens and using our goats milk for drinking, cooking, cheese/butter making and soap making. John works off the homestead but does a lot on the weekends. We basically live the way our grandparents or great grandparents lived. We believe living debt-free like our grandparents did is the biggest step in being self-sufficient or shall I say, God-sufficient. Life here is always an adventure and seldom boring .... to us anyway! If you have time, come watch the grass grow with me on the porch swing. Debbie
