English Bulldogs Summary: Jan/Feb/mar 2021

Daisy Gentle Lee:2021 was a busy year and here I sit waiting for 2022!

January of 2021 saw us delivering Christmas to the kids. We wore masks to protect each of us from COVID and opened presents outside. We had a January 3 birthday and Momma and I decided to buy from Scentsy for the first time. Loved everything! We not only bought a birthday gift, but a diffuser as well. All this wrapping and shopping wore me out, so I took a much needed nap with my Sissy Oreo πŸ™‚

Springtime on the farm was beautiful and we saw new life in Spring blooms and in Daddy and Momma’s Goat kids. Daddy began construction on an improved dining room with a nice wide ramp. When he tore out the ceiling to repair and add insulation, there was snake skins, a rat skeleton, and a few huge bee nests! (those gross photos not included)

In February we had a bit of snow and I left my paw print with my friend, Rabbit who I playfully chase at top speed around the farm! In March we had a late bloomer Goat Kid. Cookie had her first kid, Chip πŸ™‚ Hope you enjoyed this brief recap of the beginning of 2021. There are many more memories and photos which I will share later, but I must go now and help Momma decorate for the New Year 2022!!! Paws and Kisses Love Daisy

Each day, since the beginning of the week, YES, I KNOW IT IS ONLY WEDNESDAY πŸ˜‰ Each day, I have started setting up different challenges for myself.

Realizing we just had “Christmas in July Dinner“, (see my previous post) I felt like I needed a “kick in the butt” so not to slip right in to fall and winter with no “NEW YEAR STARTING IN JULY RESOLUTIONS”

  • Listen to and Learn from My Elders BECAUSE they have stories to tell. They have life experiences that I might never know about unless I ask. Unless, I take the time to sit down and talk.
My parents are such blessings and they have these amazing stories!
  • Walk every morning, on the farm trail my husband is making for me.

  • Produce more posts. On this one, honesty took a quick sit-down with me. She said, “You would rather be writing your books, and poem books, or doing anything else than a blog because you lack self-confidence.” I agreed. Overthinking each word gets me nowhere. Which leads to the next challenge.
  • Be Me! Do My Best! I like me, because I am a very strong woman. All of us women need to believe in ourselves, knowing we are amazing and we can do anything we put our mind too. One of my favorite lines from the movie, The Help, “You is kind, you is smart, you is important.” I could go on and on with this challenge, but…
  • Remember it is not all about me. I Love This One! Inspire Looking around, I am wanting to know what is happening in other people’s lives-their hobbies, interests, goals, and challenges they have. When in conversation, or passing I will strive to ask them how they are and let them share their thoughts. There is a bible verse that came through on my bible.com daily app. Colossians 4:6 Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person. Let them talk, and I can ask questions and be engaged fully in the conversation without taking over and telling my similar experiences all the time.
  • The last one is meant to draw me outside more, to explore nature and to share with others what I find. Taking photos and videos. To Inspire

Write! Read! Explore! Have Meaningful Conversations! And Share Your Challenges and Inspiration :)Jen
