What an amazing fall day today! The breeze is crisp, the sun is warm and the feelings of nesting for the coming winter are filling me. The farm is definitely bustling with activity today from barn cleaning to the smells of a huge pot of chicken stock brewing on the stove. The garden is calling me out also to harvest and the greenhouse is full of transplants that need to be repotted before the weather cools.
I can’t think of a better day to accomplish it all….hopefully! It’s wonderful to see the kids working hard with their Dad cleaning out the barn and getting it ready for the horses and goats for the winter. They may think it’s not fun now, but when they’re adults and reflect back on their childhood, they will thank us for moving to the farm and out of the rat race of Seattle. Time to get back to the days activities.
