I reeealy need a hobby

I am thinking I am in bad need of a hobby this winter. I got up this morning when my cell phone rang with Josh calling. Josh is Jason's best buddy and like a step son to us. He had called to make sure we were all OK during this ice storm. He lives in a mid size town about an hour from us with his wife and lil boy. They were iced in and waiting on the road crews to clear the roads so they could get out to work. I think the guys had all wanted to deer hunt this weekend but that wont happen. A deer could hear ya coming a mile away on the crunchy ice. So for now they are all safe. So I set about to finish up the candy making to get a package ready to ship out to Rob and Amoy the first of the week. Got that done and sat down at the computer to check emails and such. Then I got started playing a stupid online game. Oh my, I have wasted a whole day on that thing. Not like I was going to do much anyway. But gees, I can see how people can get hooked on those things. I still have not picked up my knitting that I had intended to learn this winter. Nor the crocheting either. I think I need to put my time to better use going thru the seed catalog trying to figure out what kind of seeds we need to order this year. I usually do try to get my seed order in early in the winter so I can have time to plot and plan how much and where I want everything planted in the garden next spring. But its supposed to be cold and nasty all weekend so maybe I will get that done. The temps today were around 30, just below freezing so I have stayed in. The ice is still hanging around for now. We shall see what the weekend holds for us. Maybe I can do something exciting tomorrow to tell you about.
Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.

My newest time waster is facebook... I go on and look at old high school friends pages, etc and next time I look at the clock half the day is gone. I started only allowing myself about 15 minutes on the computer in the morning, then I make myself get off... LOL of course, I still don't get much accomplished. I need to start a list of things I want to do this winter too!

I think I guilt trip myself a lot. I really dont have any thing that needs doing right now. Only thing to feed is the dog and put out food for the farm cats. Son takes care of feeding the hog. I should jus allow me to be lazy in winter, i sure dont get a chance to do that in summer. But on the farm there is always piddly chores that need to be kept ahead of or ya get way far behind come spring. But right now, its cold and I wanna hibernate and rest. lol
