Fall used to be my favorite season. Nice, crisp weather (read—not the scorching Alabama summer); Thanksgiving; Beautiful Trees; Campfires; I could go on…..
But I’ve changed my mind about that….I love Spring. Spring allows for renewal and retries—which I am always in need of these days…It allows for time outside and sunshine and short sleeves and work.
I have really missed working on projects this winter. I have felt sort of blah about things lately, and I finally realized it was because I was ready to be busy. In the last few years, we have gotten in a groove around here of finding projects to work on and knocking them out. We work on them together, as a family. We finish them, as a family. We move on to the other projects on the list, and each member of the family has projects that they want to get done. We work on them all together. Together is my favorite part.
We finally got Winnie’s stanchion built this week, and it felt so good to get it checked off! (I think she was secretly waiting on us to get her stanchion built before she has that calf of hers….). But it reminded me how great it was to work on a project and get it done.
I am excited about the projects we have on the docket for the next few months…Finishing the Cowboy’s Shop, Getting the garden up and going, Building a rabbit hutch, A desk for the girls’ bedroom, Restoring the vintage kitchen table……I'm sure there will be more......
But, mostly, I’m excited about the together part of all those projects.......and the sweet memories that we build while working......together.
Until next time,
HELLO & WELCOME!!
