While I was doing my farm chores this morning.  It occurred to me how happy I am.

I mean, it didn't just occur to me.  It occurs every time I do farm chores.  I just love working on our farm.

This morning the weather was lovely and my time was flexible, so Hubba and I worked on one of those put-off-until-later chores.

Our farm isn't huge, but the list of things to do and fix is.  Sometimes it's overwhelming, especially since Hubba and I each travel a lot for our day jobs.

While we were having lunch later, he said something about how happy I am when we're working outside and how happy that makes him.  I told him it's true and that I had just been thinking the same thing.  Then I read this post on The Knitty Gritty Homestead, one of my more favorite blogs.

It's wonderful to know that others are out there doing the same thing.  People are building a more rural, sustainable life and making it happen one day at a time, in between all of the other things that need doing.

I read that same post and felt that same way. It's funny how just being out in that barn lets the happiness in.

What an adorable alpaca face! Who wouldn't be happy seeing that?

The alpacas look super happy, too, and that's a lovely blue sky overhead!
