Georgia Southern University's football team went on a tear in the FCS playoffs. Between what I do for work and what I do as a fan, I have been on quite a tear myself! Traveling, planning, hosting and screaming until my vocal chords were raw.....that would be what I have spent a majority of my time doing since I last wrote about the great art of making syrup.
There is nothing like the Holiday Season to get a man back on track though. It's an opportunity to reflect on the year, rest up as a new year is on the horizon, and of course time to give thanks for the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. What a year it has been! Sometimes I feel guilty for the way God has blessed me and my family. I don't really deserve any of it.
The next couple of weeks will be spent at the Ponderosa. A little time with the family, a little time working on projects around the house and maybe even a little hunting and/or fishing trip somewhere in there. A few more blogs are on the horizon too. I've been jotting down ideas over the last few weeks. I have a lot to run my mouth (fingers) about: kids, being a father, debt, deer in my garden, the actual cost of an automobile, the stigma associated with being frugal, why manatees are useless and I still have to get around to hooking up and writing about the solar panel array that I bought back in the summer.
Looking forward to the down time. Hope everyone else has a chance to enjoy some down time of your own.
Ya'll take it easy,
