I am excited to begin working on my merit badges and sharing my experiences with everyone! After much debating I was finally able to pick the top 4 badges I plan to accomplish first!
I choseÖ.

1.Pampered Pets (Outpost)
-Itís important to me that my pets are healthy and will live a long happy life. Knowing what is best for them will allow me to enhance their life.

2. Bread Making (Farm Kitchen)
-I have always enjoyed cooking and now look forward to a better way of cooking.

3. Embroidery (Stitching and Crafting)
- Would love to make something special for my baby boy just like my Grandma Butters made for me.

4. Water Conservation (Cleaning Up)
- I love the idea of helping save the planet as well as help me save money on my bill.

With that in mind, what merit badges do you fellow farmgirls plan on accomplishing first? Or working towards right now? Any of them hold a special meaning that drives you to accomplish one over another?

Much luck and enjoyment in your merit badge experiences!

What are the recipes that always get asked for at family get togethers and what are your youngest's fabourites? That could be your starting point!

I have yet to hear what my "best" recipes are. :) Looking forward to hearing about your mixes. I have many jars of things I have dried, but haven't used a fraction.

Jill I toyed with the idea of doing a cookbook but to tell you the truth I don't like all the measuring you have to do to get it right. I'm more of a pinch of this and a splash of that kind of cook.

To do the mixes I will have to keep track of each measurement, but not looking forward to that part of it, so will have to tie on my FarmGirl apron and get it done.

That's a great idea Sara! I remember my mother had a book of recipes for mixes which she used quite a bit. Am I remembering correctly that you were working on a recipe book? If so, these would be a great addition.

I've decided what I want to work on for the new Farm Kitchen badge. It will take a while to get things together because I want to create and make mixes; and use the herb & veg powders I make and the herbs I grow. After the mixes are made than I will have to use them in recipes.

Congratulations Kris on finishing your UFO Badge! I bet it feels so nice to have all those UFOs finished and one more badge done! Way to go!

I got a bunch of UFO's done for the UFO badge.

I probably shouldn't have submitted because those re-useable duster/swifters might have fit better for another badge!!

I got my email yesterday. I still need to get them printed. I will be digging out my printer today!

Thanks MaryJane and Cydnie, I downloaded the new merit badges. It was the first time I ever printed on both sides. It was cool to do something new. I'm interested in working on the Kitchen Renegade and Water Management badges.

Jill, that sounds like fun. Maybe you and your daughter can work together on one as well. I'm not sure which badge I will start will. I will see what the requirements are for macrame when the badge comes out. I may start with that one.

Great plans Sara and Krista. I hadn't looked yet, but have plans to make macrame hangers for a couple of glass floats that I have. I even have the yarn necessary. I should get back to badge earning as well. I'm trying to get my life a little more scheduled to make my days more productive and want to have some time to try new things. I think I did macrame in grade 8 art, but not since. My daughter has been selling plant hangers on Etsy and she has some books, so this would be a great first badge for 2021!

I agree Sara. I want to get a game plan and see how many badges I think I can complete this year. I hoping this will be my best Badge year! Did you see the new badges for this year? I love the macrame one!

I need to dust off my Merit Badge Planner and see where I'm at and what I want to work on.

Thank you Dianna.

I need to finish the other part of my intermediate cross stitch badge level and then I can apply for it!

Krista, I ADORE YOUR bear!!!!!!
Hillary, Lol, IN TOTAL agreement! Many of these young adult alabamians and teens think they are safe and run all through the stores with no masks. I wear mine, better safe than sorry. I dont want it and I dint WANT to give it to anyone else!

Thank you Cathy, Hilary, and Sara! Itís been a blast.

Hilary, your cross stitching turned out really nice.

Kathy, yes jump right on in. You only apply once you have completed the requirements for each level! Good luck with you new badge and have fun!

MaryJane, this just breaks my heart. My family has chosen to stay home as much as possible and wear our mask whenever out of the home. It breaks my heart to see these numbers. Especially the idea of losing 3,000 plus people a day. I truly hope for a better outcome.

That is terrible :( although here in the UK we now have a new strain to add to the horror (and yes people seem to think they are immune/the rules don't apply to them )

Waking up to this morning's news gave extra meaning to your project Hilary, as those of us who have been staying home struggle to understand why so many aren't.

"The U.S. set two more devastating Covid-19 records as it counted down the hours to the end of what has been a calamitous year for the nation.

On Tuesday, it recorded more than 3,700 new deaths linked to the virus, a chilling new high. The US also reported the most Covid-19 hospitalizations, with more than 124,600 patients nationwide, according to the COVID Tracking Project. On a state level, Texas officials reported record-high hospitalizations Tuesday, with more than 11,700 Covid-19 patients across the state while Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp said a temporary hospital with an additional 60 beds could open within the next few days. In Los Angeles County, hospitalizations are at an all-time high and nearing 7,200, almost 1,000% up from just two months ago. With the surge in patients, some hospitals are running out of oxygen tanks.

"I actually think we're now beyond waves or surges and this is a viral tsunami that we are now experiencing," epidemiologist Dr. Robert Kim-Farley said.

And experts have warned the US could see even worse Covid-19 numbers in January, fueled by this month's holiday gatherings and travel. On Monday alone, more than 1.1 million people passed through airport security checkpoints across the country, the Transportation Security Administration said. "The next couple of months are going to be awful," said Dr. Jonathan Reiner, professor of medicine at George Washington University. "We're going to lose 3,000, maybe more people a day, probably until we're well into February. And then, we should start to see some light."

And while the ongoing vaccinations continue to offer hope, the process is taking longer than many health officials hoped, and it will likely be months before the country will begin to see a meaningful impact, experts said."
