I need to go through my seeds - I always feel a mixture of excitement and pre-disappointment with those. But I'm starting to learn better ways to grow in our soil that produces results without constant vigilance... needed that years ago and didn't get it, so I would work really hard for a while, and then give up at a certain point and hope I had 'gotten enough return'.
I am also taking another go at Spanish, because our daughter will be offered that at high school next year. Our daughter is going to high school - time really flies! I've never done very well with Spanish - although I study Welsh, French, Japanese and now Romanian and Swedish without half the 'pound my head with a hammer' that I've had these last three days with Spanish. Again. Which is why I didn't learn it well the last time I tried, or the time before that. I'm not saying anything bad about the language, just that I know there is some sort of brain-obstacle there that is hard for me specifically to overcome. However, this time around, I'm coming at it through the dual channels of Romanian and French - which together seem to be doing more for me than before.
