Don't Leave Home without IT!

We’re always searching for new interviews, podcasts, or books to listen to. I have Audible which is so wonderful. For $15/month, I get one book for free every month, and can buy any other book – the audio version. So while we’re working, we can be learning too! This app is great and has allowed me to get through a stack of books that I don’t have time to read. We also stumbled upon Tim Ferriss. His website fourhourworkweek.com has a ton of free podcasts to listen to. The interviews feature celebrities, entrepreneurs and friends. His shows are funny, super interesting and easy to listen to. His podcasts cover just about everything, from gut bacteria to meditation. If you’re in the market for new material to listen to – I hope this helps!
On a lighter note –
There were a pack of ten goats in the yard today. Sometimes they escape and jump over our fence from the neighbors farm (at least the pigs don’t come over). Sport let the goats know that they didn’t belong in our yard, but they didn’t listen to his barking and whining. They just continued to walk through the bushes and we watched their jaw move in a circle while they chewed on the cane grass. They are so dang cute.
 
We enclosed the backyard completely so Sporty wouldn’t escape. For a while, everyday he would wander off and try to find Magic (the neighbor dog who happens to be a 12 year old Great Dane who still goes into heat). We’d hear stories of Sport crossing the highway and going to the beach. We’d find him up at Magic’s house after taking our eyes off him for 10 seconds. He was so sneaky and just couldn’t stop looking for Magic. So we built a fence to make sure he couldn’t run away anymore. Sport of course found a new hole in the fence we built. Our neighbor kindly brought him back and we gave him some scoldings.
But only a few minutes later, he’s down in the office again waiting for us to play ball with him. Our love for this little creature grows deeper everyday. Our little man.

We welcome yet another new year
As our minds are focused on the upcoming year, my eyes gaze back and my thoughts drift. They drift toward the most recent hectic holiday season, toward the speed of the quickly passing year, and simultaneously, toward all that has happened and changed within 12 months.
