Rebecca's Corner 💭
This winter we have had to complete several home projects both large and small. Home projects take time, money, and effort to complete. As relatively new homeowners, we have been working to prioritize the projects that need to get done immediately and the ones that can (and should) wait. The other decision we are often making is whether or not we can fix something ourselves. The risk with fixing something on your own is that if you fail you can make a small problem worse. However, if you are successful, there is a pretty good feeling of accomplishment. We are getting better recognizing the things we want to tackle on our own and the ones we do not. Important lessons that will hopefully help us to keep our house in good shape!

But the individual butterfly or earthquake remains just the unique existence which it is. We forget in explaining its occurrence that it is only the occurrence that is explained, not the thing itself.
