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.
