For the last few days we've had hurricane force winds in Montana, causing destruction all over. Mid-day Monday, it was in the 50s with and wind gust were reported in the surrounding counties at 100 mph. The photo is from our drive back from Billings on Sunday with a solid wood door hanging out the back of our car. It had been on the roof.
Wind was suspected as the cause of a train derailment near the capital city. By the time I left work, the temperature had dropped 20 degrees and it was snowing. No one said anything about snow, but guys, it was still snowing when we went to bed last night.
Wacky weather and busy work week aside, the monthly goals I set last week are all moving forward.
Pretty sure I only missed breakfast one day last week and that was partly due to a cold coming on and just not feeling like eating. The closet purge continues. An entire post will be dedicated to that soon. Montana bloggers and the state journalism chapter are coming along and we're down a few walls here at the homestead.
So now, Weekly Wishes, inspired by Melyssa at The Nectar Collective.
+ Get out for a run. The last time I ran was Thanksgiving. The weather, work, life has slowed my running routine and I want it back. Insanity is great, but rough on my joints and it's just not the same, flailing around in the basement. And now, thanks to Eileen and Alicia, I have a running goal to work toward. In the form of an 8K on March 30. Here's to hoping the weather gives me a chance to make this one happen.
+ More chicken planning. We're hoping to pick up our new baby chickens next month or so, meaning I have got to get a move on planning and prepping for the fluff babies.
+ Nail down a date for the kickoff/launch event for SPJ. Excited to get the ball rolling on this and it's a top notch group that's assembled to make this happen for journalism in Montana.
What are your plans for the week? Big projects, or smaller steps leading to bigger things?
