I Quit

I quit procrastinating on getting back to blogging that is!

Argh, I have missed this so much. I had full intentions of keeping up on my bloggin’ through our big move across the province but that didn’t happen. I put a lot of pressure and expectations on myself so I’m not going to lie I am disappointed  in myself for not following through.

I was, however, not expecting the mental and emotional overwhelm but it slowly crept in and something had to give. I am quite easily overwhelmed, something I need to work on. I am a keep it simple kind of girl so I am always looking for that fine balance of working towards by goals and not biting off more than I can chew.

But I have so much I want to share from my experiences with my business, being a wife, a mother and a goal chaser…..always working to be just a little bit better than I was yesterday.

Just like when I started the blog earlier this year, my hopes in sharing my story and journey will offer my readers a little inspiration mixed in with a little humour, some tears, and hopefully a little bit of entertainment {at my expense of course}.

Catching Up

We are now partially settled into our new home. We really love it here. The community has been very welcoming and hospitable….a true small prairie town!

I say we are partially settled because errr we still have a room full of things to unpack, a trailer FULL of things to unpack, and at least one more trailer load left to haul from our farm.

This has been an enormous change for us but one thing that is fantastic is that we have been blessed to have found an acreage that offers us that same “farm” life we had before.  Minus the cows of course, but it gives us the opportunity to get back into them in the future if we want!

I do miss the rolling hills of home but the view from our new home is still pretty great!IMG_3158.JPG.jpeg

One last change or rather addition.

Meet Goldie! She is the new queen of our castle and is such a doll. A smarty pants, she was housebroke in a week! Her favourite past times are dive bombing dandelions and spreading the seeds everywhere and playing in puddles and getting covered in mud.

I hope you enjoy pursuing my blog, if this is the first visit feel free to take some time to catch up on some of my older posts and join me back here tomorrow for more!

Cheers,

My Spirit Animal is a Moose!

Do you believe in spirit animals?

This may very well be when I lose you and you think I am absolutely crazy, haha!

BUT…..

I have, since I was quite young, noticed that from time to time certain animals would show up in my life in what seemed to be odd coincidental spurts. It wasn’t until the internet and google was born that I made the connection of them possibly being spirit animals.

If you think I’ve lost my marbles…….sorry, bare with me!!

Obviously, living on a farm I am surrounded by animals all the time so it is kind of hard to explain when you know a “spirit animal” has came into your life. It’s just a gut feeling you have. It maybe happens to me once or twice a year but lately it has been quite a long time since I have noticed anything.

Until yesterday!

I was driving home from Moosomin (which makes this even more ironic) and about 40 minutes into my drive a moose and her calf nearly ran out in front of me on the road. Okay, it is definitely not everyday I see a moose but I didn’t think anything of it because I am after all in moose country! Smack between Moosomin and Moose Mountain Provincial Park, ya, I am pretty sure they have a moose or two around there!

I continued on with my day not giving it another thought.

Later that evening Liam had a ball game in another town and on the way home, about 15 minutes from our house we come over a hill and standing just off the road are……you guessed it. TWO freaking moose.

Random picture for attention! I definitely did not have time while driving to snap pics of the actual moose I seen!

Okay, I don’t get out as much as I would like but I have travelled a fair bit across our great nation and NEVER have I seen FOUR freaking moose in one day. And yes we do have the odd moose around where we live…..but it is pretty rare to see them!

Like I said, you may think I am crazy but I dare you to google the symbolism sometime if you have a hunch a certain animal is showing up more frequently in your life than normal and see what it says! They might be sending you a message!

My mom actually has a spirit animal book and this is what it says for the moose as a spirit animal……

“You can feel proud of your recent accomplishment and share it enthusiastically with others, not to be boastful or competitive, but for the simple joy of sharing.

It’s important to encourage others with their dreams and visions.

You have the strength and ability to endure this emotionally turbulent period.

Others will soon be looking to you for direction, inspiration, and guidance.

This is a time to explore new depth of awareness and be prepared for increasing sensitivities.”

Ya that pretty much sums me up to a tee!

So wether you believe in it or not or think I am an absolute loony, haha, I challenge you to keep your eyes and heart open to it, you just never know!

{I will update this with the name of the book I quoted once the hour is more reasonable to text and ask my Mom….or better yet, Mom, when you read this want to text me the name of the book, haha}

I promise you this is as weird as I get and if you have made it this far double thumbs up for you!

I would love to know if you have had a “spirit animal” in your life lately and was the meaning significant to you?

Have an amazing day!

Cheers,

Kimberley

My Husband Moved Out

I have been dreading this day.

I know we will be just fine and that we have so much to be thankful for but I was getting pretty darn used to having my husband around all the time!

For the last three months since he was let go from his job he took over doing all of the farm chores, plus helped around the house, and hauled Liam to his sports. Oh, and helped ME with my store!

And now he has officially moved out. Off to start his new chapter in a new town at a new job.

And I have to take over ALL of the responsibilities ALL of the time and that just freaks me out a little! Plus I have to pack up our house in the midst of all of that.

Thankfully there is a light at the end of the tunnel and in 5 weeks (cross our fingers) we will moving out with him so we can all start our new adventure.

And I am sure we will be making the 5 hour drive many times in between to see each other.

We will miss him thats for sure…..but it will all be totally worth it!

Cheers,

Kimberley
