A long time ago, a friend of mine shared a philosophy with me that if he could accomplish three things a day, then he felt like he had used his day wisely. If he had sixteen things that needed to be done, he would get at least three done, then not let the other thirteen bother him, because they could wait and be knocked out the next day. But he had to do three.

So this challenge is to get three things done every day, to post those things here, and to let yourself get off the guilt train about the rest of the things you had HOPED to accomplish each day, at least for the rest of that 24 hours.

January has 31 days, so my goal is to get 93 "to do's" done this month! Three a day is all we ask. :)

Puppies are getting turkey today. Kenya, Froggy, and Herbie are getting extra pine nuts. I am hard-boiling eggs for Merlot, my cockatiel. I am going to give the chickens some corn and let the goats/donkeys out back to graze on the pasture that they haven't been on for a week or two (lots of dropped leaves from the oaks and new grass to eat). The bunnies are getting fresh greens and not sure yet what I'll do for the fish....

That will take care of ONE of my to-do's!!
