…or not. We have had such a difficult time keeping our animals alive on this little hobby farm! We’ve only had small ones thankfully, but still it’s so frustrating to go out and discover the raccoons have once again emptied our chicken coop.
I haven’t planted a thing yet. It’s just been a weird year, and so though I’m hoping to still get a few things in the ground, I’m learning to be ok if I don’t. I feel a bit of pressure as I’m surrounded by a group of hobby farmers at our church, and so many of the discussions I’m part of or overhear have to do with farming.
We are so enjoying being in this house, though, and I look forward to making it more “ours” in the years to come. My biggest issue is patience. I have a to-do list a mile long, and I have to remember that I can’t do all in a day, week or even month, so to just be content with things as they are.
Our house up river is finally SOLD! So after almost two years, we are happy to be winding down to closing day, and moving on. Trusting God to work out the details of getting it emptied out, as we have little to no spare time, and there is still a fair amount of things that need to be moved.
Overall, life has been stressful, hard, and good.
