... that Rhythm of Life beating strong in our day to day routine ...
it is satisfying and comforting.
everything seems to be doing what it is supposed to do.
- there is pleasure in knowing that if you put a seed in good, healthy soil it will sprout and give you food for your family
- there is satisfaction in seeing chicks grow into gangly chickens, learning to perch and eat scraps ... seeing them grow into what our Creator intended them to be
- there is joy in watching water be used to wash with and then used again to feed plants that will grow and fill my children's tummies
just getting up each day .... planning and thinking about what comes next to improve the soil, make it healthy and grow good stuff.
even getting to know our neighbors, and their errant animals! we have ducks, geese, chickens, and guinea fowl that come on to our property .... which is fine for now .... i reckon a dog will be coming soon! and that should take care of that.
so life is finding a normal for us. the kids go to school, hubby off to work ... i always find time to have a coffee with friends and then doing odd jobs here at the homestead. we're having a planning session saturday ... to quantify and prioritise our projects. so i reckon we may be ramping up a bit after that!
i can't wait!
and this is just a few photo's .... a glimpse of what has become normal for us. enjoy!
|our Plymouth Rock chicks are becoming gangly teenagers. have been doing|
some reading on sexing them and i reckon we have 7 hens and 5 roosters. the lucky strongest rooster and two
of the hens will become our breeding trio to keep us in chooks!
|and this is what you get when errant geese come on your block. we have a hay|
bale down at the briar patch and this monsterous gem was tucked in a corner. we used the floating
test, it passed and then had it for dinner. yumm!!!!!
