One Winter Day in February!




It’s just a week that I have here, doing "farm duty" for friends while they are in Maui avoiding the February weather.

Yay them!
And yay me too!

This is a week of respite...less than half an hour from home and hubby—and cats. I can enjoy the best of both worlds.

My “chores” for the week:

·      Gather the chicken eggs (my favorite part!!)
·      Feed the chickens and ducks and give them fresh water (It bothers me that they have to stay in their coop while family is away. Makes sense, but I feel bad. Otherwise, this would be a favorite).
·      Feed three feral cats (my other favorite thing!)
·      Feed four alpacas and give them water (this is becoming a favorite...)

Once done, that leaves plenty of time to...         

To WHAT, exactly?



What DO you do with the free time you’ve always dreamed of having...besides wasting it wondering what you’ll do with all that free time?

On day 1, I awoke early (for me)—7:30.  That’s usually time to roll over for another hour, but I lifted the shade and peeked out the window.


Wow!
I said it again from the kitchen.WOW!


Mist was clearing from the Taunton River and the sun was painting  the scene. I needed to get outside and SEE it. Close up!

I threw my clothes on. Slammed feet in sneakers (skipped the dam ankle brace) and left the house, jacket open (no hat scarf or gloves despite the February chill), sneaker laces trailing. I know how fast the light can change. The sun does not wait for late risers.

The low morning light spun the grasses into gold, while leaving the icy water a shadowy blue. Every direction I looked, the sun made glorious with its rays. Geese flew in, honking with as much joy as I felt.





And with my iPhone in hand I snapped pictures, while repeating my mantra: Oh, my God! Oh, my God! Oh, my God! For this was truly His creation, his glory! And I knew he was saying, "Ha, ha, I got you out of bed early, didn't I?"

And truly, If this morning was all I did in my free time on the farm, it was so worth it!

 This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

A Continuum: the sands of time...

Time is like a handful of sand, the tighter you grasp it, the faster it runs through your fingers. Anonymous My 20’s: That runner’s high! I love it! I feel like my feet are six inches above the pavement and I could just keep running and running forever. I stretch my runs longer and longer for pure pleasure until I just have to turn back--reluctantly. I’m empowered and kind of in awe of my energy. My 30s: My pregnancy decade. Three kids. I jog behind a stroller with the firstborn; walk with a toddler while pushing a stroller with the second born; walk slowly with my third, stopping so he can drop pebbles down the drain or pat the doggie.   I go on occasional walks or slow jogs on weekends or days when my husband is home with all three kids. But I often choose to nap. My 40s: My oldest babysits for thirty minutes so I can go out for a walk. I call it my “by-by walk.” “Mommy’s going for a by-by walk,” I say to soothe my youngest, who cries

Lesson from a Weed~

If dandelions could talk, here’s what I think they might say:  " Bloom where you’re planted, sink your roots deep. Smile in the sun, soak up the rain, and let the wind take you to new places." Dandelions are an early spring food for bees. They are often the first flower a young child picks for his mother and they provide a sweet moment for a mother to teach her child to make a wish and blow away the seeds. They speckle landscapes with lemon-colored glory. Common, and often disliked by those in favor of perfect lawns, we trample over them with hardly a thought. All this crossed my mind as I stood in this field of dandelions, most having gone to seed. I had an hour to myself at a retreat at a beautiful family farm on this day of unexpected sunshine and warmth. I was looking for a moment of stillness.   I’d watched two swans,   visited the alpacas,   chatted with the chickens, tried to coax a kitty closer...
