Next Year

I told all the chickens last week that if they didn't start laying again, I was gonna eat them, and that I was already shopping for their replacements online. It worked! Four eggs already in the last couple of days...which is good, because I don't think I'll have the mental cycles to raise a new group of hens this year.

New Year's Resolutions that I intend to keep:
Stay up to date with all my schoolwork. I'm not paying good money to waste time. Go for a walk at least twice a week. Drink at least as much water as I drink coffee. Visit my grandma more. Make more homebrew beer and mead.

Resolutions that would be nice, but seem pretty damn unlikely:
Learn to read katakana and hiragana (phonetic japanese). Do yoga (more than one sun salutation a month. Eat the vegetables in the fridge, rather than letting them get old and giving them to the chickens. Write posts here more regularly.


  1. If you've got the chickens laying during the darkest time of the year, you are the most persuasive woman I know! Bravo for you. Usually they get a break for a few weeks in the winter. Egg factories use artificial light to make them produce year round. Evidently, insincere threats work just as well. ;-)

  2. Happy New Year, Lyssa! All the best to you and yours for 2013!


  3. I especially like your resolution about visiting your grandma. Good luck with all your resolutions - I hope the New Year brings you all the things that make your heart sing!
