Although it’s been several months since I’ve posted anything on the blog, it’s not because things haven’t been busy out here on the Farm. AND I’ve heard it said that if you can’t be busy doing something, try to do something that’s worth writing about.
I’ve been doing both.
Egarden has produced a lot of Lemon Balm, Chocolate Mint and other herbs. I’ve spent an awful lot of time researching those herbs, learning how to process and dry them, and making teas.
Springtime came and went and the alpaca received their yearly haircuts. That means I have fiber. LOTS of fiber! I don’t know how I’m ever going to catch up if I try to process all that fiber on my own, so I’m considering sending it to a fiber mill and having it turned into yarn for future projects. I’ll still have plenty to spin and some to sell.
And the first of the garden produce has been coming in. We gathered blueberries and blackberries and made jelly, too.
The way I see it is this….Every day, I will look for balance in the things I’m trying to do, whether it’s creating words or images on a page, making music, growing or preparing food.
AND when I feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything accomplished, I will remain thankful for those things that I AM able to accomplish. Whatever doesn’t get done may be there tomorrow. Or not. And either way–it will have been a good day.
