This is the explanation for my new riding obsession, (which I will maybe explain someday that it's not that new!); trying to do some activities even after I come home really tired from work; don't imagine me going to the gym or something, but like crossing the road to my neighbours is really a challenge sometimes, especially when all you dreamt about while at work was laying lazy on your couch and watching Black Beauty..., or going shopping or just window shopping in Decathlon with one or even two of my riding-obsessed friends.
I don't know if it's because I am stubborn, or just my mood right now, but I am really trying to do something more for myself. It could be the age I'm close to???? !!!! or maybe just that I am tired of working for others and I've decide to do something for myself; that is manage with the litlle I have, and just like Jackie, think out of the box:
Anyways, compared to that necklace above here is one of my own creations:
I'm really trying to expand my horizons, be more flexible and move more! But most of all, I am trying to make a future for myself...and as I have little options, I thaught long and hard what I could do and see myself doing in the future. And I've come to a simple conclusion: I have to work with the material I am given, that is my house at Raca and the land me and my sister own!
Remember these photos?
|believe it or not, this pear tree made like ten fruits the year before...|
and remember the sneaky photo of my neighbour's wonderful garden next to ours?
I also have some land in the hills close to Raca, which I am thinking about using for some plantations, but it is already much to much for my already "srinked" budget, but maybe with the right associates, who knows? I don't want to risk stating something which I am not able to do right now, it's just a plan for the future, maybe next year, or two years from now, as this investment is much more significant, reaching to over 2000 Euro, money which I don't have right now.
But I have my mind set on being a farm girl, and that's what I will do! I have to set priorities, read much stuff about this, take every advice I can get, follow deadlines (mine right now is having money for the baby trees by march!) and slowly start making something for myself, as nobody has everything from the beginning, right?
This doesn't mean I'm moving back to Raca, my trees will grow even without me being there, I'll just take care of them whet it is needed. And the best of all things is that I, just like hobbits , like planting and growing things:
baked potatoes, cut and stuffed....
As the weekend is on our doorstep, myself and my crazy pets:
