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.
