With summer officially upon us and the farm growing on all fronts the working day is anything but tranquil. We have built a pond for our ducks, and then re-graded it this weekend to aid in draining it for cleaning. Added a new roof to the shed row barn, and a coat of white paint to spruce it up. Weeding vegetable garden is a near daily task. Constant motion with projects in several directions have kept us very busy and as we head in for the evening hours rest at times seems elusive with the clean up of the house and addressing paperwork that has been put on hold. Yet each night we return to the barn to tuck in and lock the ducks and chickens in the stalls for protection. I turn on a meditation CD- Tranquil Moments, soothing music for the night and for barn noise to aid in scaring off predators.
As I listen to the music and the calming of the animals, I enjoy the twilight and the quiet of early evening outside. A time to settle my soul and reflect on the goodness of the day, the land and the people who have been a wonderful support as we develop this farm. Thank you.
