Soul soothing with the farmily this afternoon
We just got back from the river. It was hot today. And we hustled. We’re down to a skeleton crew on Mondays without Eli or Sage. But the river called us and we seized the moment. Carpe momento? We don’t have entire days to seize, but we’re learning to seize the moment.
Yes, there was work to do. There’s always work to do. This is what I’m just beginning to figure out. I mean, we’re nearly 10 years into this farm and we’re just figuring out how to do it sanely. There will always be work to do. But some work can wait. And a half hour of stretching will make you feel so good! And an hour at the river will be so refreshing. And five minutes to pick that bouquet of flowers. And twenty minutes to juice those reject carrots. And forty five minutes to sip a prosecco on the porch. And fifteen minutes to pet the dog or cat…
This is what keeps farmers sane. Seizing those small moments makes the mountains of work so much more approachable.
