The comments from yesterday's post were a good reminder that no matter who we are, we are not immune to pain and heartache.
Difficult days arrive when we least expect it. The past couple of years have taken their toll on all of us. We live in a world that is quite different from the one we used to know. And yet, each of us is still the same... a little older, yes.... a little wiser, hopefully.
Each of us is tasked with finding that little piece of blue sky...
that exists on a cloudy day. (Sometimes you have to look a little harder! Sometimes that requires ignoring the clouds, knowing that the blue sky lies just beyond.)
One thing is certain... life is easiest when we do it together!!Mornings begin in the dark these days. Waiting for the sun to rise puts me behind schedule, so I start the chores by the light of a head lamp.
Days are quiet at this time of year. The earth is slowing down... preparing to rest. The fields are empty without the ducks and chickens out grazing.
Our neighborhood bald eagle is still in the area, so the birds remain on yard arrest.
And with the week's rainy weather, I don't think they are minding too much.
I was gone from the farm yesterday afternoon for a dentist appointment. While I was away, Hubbs built the next gnome home. We had a couple of leftover gnomes that are playing guitars...
so Hubbs built a gnome home that looks like a guitar!! So stinking cute!
Pete assisted him in every way possible. It's actually amazing that Hubbs got anything done at all... because Pete makes shop work very difficult!
