Last year we anticipated building a chicken coop. So my goal was to be able to hold a nail. I have always been the ‘handy man’ at our house. If a chicken coop was to be built, I would be one to build it. Otherwise, we’d have to hire someone.
Unfortunately, Lida did not cooperate. We hired the contractor who built our house to construct a chicken coop to match. When the invoice arrived, I instructed the month-old hens; they better lay golden eggs.
This year we plan to add a small barn to our little compound. Therefore, my goal for 2014 is: to hold a nail! I’m going to be more specific this year, Lida must hold a nail that I have strength enough to hammer into a 2 x 4. Unlike the nail in the photo included with this post.
Making the photograph was fun and I smiled fondly at my numb hand lying on the ubiquitous nonskid pad one finds on every horizontal surface of my home.
Sometimes I don’t take goals, etc. very seriously. Because, if I took everything seriously, I would be depressed 90% of the time.
I choose to be lighthearted and laugh at my foibles. I really believe laughter is the best medicine. Please laugh with me!
