Re: Daily goals, motivation and check in

@outlander, I find music helps me get through the household chores. as boring and repetitive it is, I try to make it as fun as possible. also u don't have to tick them all off in a day, it's ok if u only get a few done. it's progress and that's what counts

Re: Daily goals, motivation and check in

I meant that for @frog. apologies. new here trying to figure out how it all works

Re: Daily goals, motivation and check in

Thanks @octavia totally agree re music! What have you got on today?

I'm about to walk to the garden shop to see if there's anything to be done about an ongoing pest problem. I'm also catching up with my daughter. Also on my list:

  • Shower
  • Physio exercises
  • start packing for a weekend away
  • sweep my back courtyard
  • put up some fairy lights in my front courtyard
  • cook a double dinner so I don't have to think about Monday's

How's eveyone fairing on all their tasks today? Hope it's going ok.

Re: Daily goals, motivation and check in

Well I had almost given up on being able to replace my birds (get new ones) - after I lost so many, when the water hopper failed (2 weeks ago).

Yet it's so depressing, looking at any empty aviary (with them gone).

So out I went this morning, to give it another try (after several attempts & searches).

I came home with 4 new Goldfinches (after losing all 3), & 1 new Red-Faced Parrotfinch (after losing the only one I had).

I still cannot find any Bengalese, to replace my lost ones - the sole survivor is on his own (at the moment).

Yet that was a good start, with unexpected positive results.
