monday's mountain musings

Yippy! I finally have a two week break from school! I do not think I have been so excited about a vacation to no where in about 35 years to be quite honest. This semester,I am taking a psychology course. And while I love studying and watching people, I have no real interest in studying it and find it to be quite ludicrous to spend an entire semester doing so. That said, my lack of interest and not caring for the teaching style of the professor, it has made the last 3 weeks of life seem like hell.

The weather here has taken a turn for the better, at least for a couple of days. We are now seeing 40s during the day which is much better than what we have been having. The cabbages and the veggies in the greenhouse seem to be holding up quite well despite the extreme temperatures we have had so early in the season.

Although I have not written much in the last couple of weeks, I have been busy and taking pictures so that I can post about what we have been up to. Over the next couple weeks I will probably be posting more than I have been recently because I will have more time. Although, I did sign up to take an online small business class and business writing class over my break so spare time will still be limited. I have ideas and want to try some of them out but to do that I need to know more about business, planning, and so on before doing so. If I do not move on my ideas now, I will again sweep them to the back of my mind with it nagging me for another year until I have time again.This has been something I have been pushing back for many years, it's time to quit procrastinating.

Today, to begin my break, I have to do a load or two of laundry, wash dishes, make some bread and cookies and go fetch drinking water. What a relaxing way to start vacation... Tonight, I am hoping to catch the eclipse but the weather man is saying clouds and freezing rain. For those that celebrate, Happy Solstice!


  1. After school, I had considered taking psychology as a major at university. Glad I didn't take it, it would have ruined most of my fun when watching/interacting with people. (I took sociology instead, and my major was foreign languages (Japanese, Arabic).

  2. I hope you enjoy your vacation-sounds like you deserve it : )
