So often, it is so easy to fall into a routine. Mine is get up, take care of animals, work, take care of animals, make dinner, clean up, and sleep. Rinse and repeat five days a week. It becomes almost second nature to say “I wish I had time for that” or some other “I’d love to do that, but…” This is about not giving in to the routine and making time for the things I want to do. I’m not an expert, I don’t have it all figured out, sometimes chores slack, but I think you have to sometimes put fun things first, or you’ll go crazy.
Plus, I get to clean out my recipe drawer which is filled with recipes written on the back of junk mail and old receipts.
