There is SO much going on right now. I don't know if I'm coming or going! My husband is wrapping up one job, going to the next. We're launching a new community service group for homeschoolers tomorrow (so excited about the possibilities!). I'm finalizing lessons plans for the class I am teaching at homeschool co-op this year. I finished the parent letter for the 1st and 2nd graders I'm teaching at church and still need to plan what I'm doing this weekend for the class. There's a 4-H meeting this week I need to think about. I'm chatting with our farming friends about horse riding lessons for my two big ones. I have a garden to harvest and preserve. I have apples to pick. In all the chaos, I invited friend for a dinner party tonight. And of course I have an infant. And homeschooling. And the farm animals. And work. Plus we're planning our Country Kids party mid September (stay tuned, you're invited!).
I don't remember being *this* busy in a long time.
But, it's a busy I feel so incredibly filled up by! Teaching, helping, growing, learning. It's all my vision! When I am doing the work that I always hoped I would be doing, I feel so energized. Sleep has been sparse, but my heart feels so full.
And the cherries on top of the sundae?
-This job change means my husband and I will have more than two days a month together as a family.
-Dinner was my own meat, Maine grown cauliflower, homemade mac n cheese topped with my own tomatoes and herbs, applesauce from apples I grew and a homemade zucchini cake with cream cheese frosting. This is a magical time of year for meals, as the summer harvest is still going, but the fall harvest is ready to add to the menu.
-Plus I have fresh line dried sheets and a new LL Bean wool blanket on my bed. Which I shall be visiting now. Way later than I had hoped. I'll be dreaming of the good to come and praying for those in the path of the hurricane.
