Life on the “farm”

I feel a little funny writing that we live on a farm.  But in addition to maintaining a veggie and fruit patch, we’ve decided that having chickens qualifies.  And this basket sits in our kitchen as a constant reminder that we have 6 girls working hard for us!  They live quite a pampered life though, with lots of love and delicious treats to eat.

Everyone who knew me as a child still cannot believe that I am the same person.  Anything requiring me to get my hands dirty would never have been a consideration in the past.  But as an adult, I love working in the dirt, planting, making things grow, and well … even cleaning up chicken poop.  These activities force me to slow down and enjoy simplicity, something that is so difficult to find but so desperately needed in today’s fast-paced world!  Slowing down to enjoy the simple today.  On the farm.
