Ch-ch-ch-changes!

It is nearly Christmas, nearly the end of 2015, and nearly the start of some new adventures!  Next week is my last week working in the Extension Office as my county 4-H Coordinator!  After that I'll go back to living the life of an odd-job-working rancher girl who sings.  Which means I have to remember how to be thrifty again...

But I'm really excited to focus on my music and get some new songs written!  Here's a secret... I haven't written a single song since The Things We Gave Up was released.  So when people ask when the next album is coming out I smile nervously and say, "Don't hold your breath!"  But here's the thing, I don't want to rush the next one.  It took me almost ten years to write that first album!  Rushing=crappy in my case.  But I can feel several songs stewing inside me that will roll around for awhile and then just come out one day.  I have a feeling that spending more time outside in the snow, watching my breath puff and listening to cows munch hay will improve my muse.  I'm nervous as hell to quit drawing a steady paycheck, but I've done it before and I can do it again!  The freedom!  You only live once.

Here are some things I'm looking forward to in 2016:
- Taking guitar lessons!
- Riding the new 3 year old gelding I just bought, and having time to ride him
- Calving!  (It's right around the corner, just look at a calendar)
- The Outside Circle show at the Star in Elko on January 29th... be there.
- Turning...gasp...30!
- Catching up on my hand-painted silk scarves list
- Improving my roping skills.  I'll get there someday.  And by 'there' I mean basically proficient or mediocre.

Watch for my next post, which will be on the things I've been grateful for in 2015!
