What i have.

I have hesitated to write here lately.

My mind preoccupied (temporarily, i insist) with non wannabe-farmer information, i was afraid to bore you.

I was also afraid that i would lose readers because of the non-farmy writing.  After all, the big deal of "going to work" isn't exactly interesting to most of you.  I mean it's pretty normal, right?  Does doing what everyone else does while trying to do what everyone else doesn't qualify as interesting?

Then i realized that i was doing with this blog, exactly what i renounced in my daily life - performance.  I was seeking to give you what i think you're expecting, instead of giving you what i have and who i am.

Please accept my sincerest apologies.

And if this new phase of my life, a means to the same wannabe-farmer end, bores you, and you don't want to subscribe anymore, it's cool.  It just is what it is, and i'm cool with it.

And i'll keep givin' you what i have when i have it, and it will be real.

Good enough?



Now, a few updates.


With the advent of becoming a two income family again, we knew that becoming also a two car family was going to make life a lot easier for both of us.  So we had started budgeting to take on a car payment (which we haven't had for more than two years) and deciding what kind of car to look for, etc., etc., blah blah blah. God's plans for me are so much better than mine.  A used car, in very good condition, seemingly fell into our laps on Friday.  We were able to pay cash and still have no car note.  God is so good!  It's very cute and sporty, and i love driving it.

And since we don't have to pick up a note, we will be able to do the maintenance needed to help it serve us another 15 years or so.  This whole thing is a great relief, especially to my super hero husband, who really didn't want another bill, and i'm pretty tickled too.


Work is not what i expected, exactly, but what ever is?  I like my position.  I like the work i have to do.  And i will like it all a lot better when i catch up.  That tends to always be the case when you're a government paper shuffler (the part about needing to catch up), but i think it's actually possible now.  I think i am going to enjoy my job.


My tiny flock seems to be much happier without the overcrowdedness they were enduring before, and when i get home from work in the evenings, the first thing i do is to let them out for a good run around the house before bed time.  Thankfully, with summer approaching, that "run" will be a few hours long in just very soon.  As i anticipated, i very much look forward to seeing my chickens in the evening.  They help me re-associate myself with the non-office me, and they always give me a smile when i watch them take off running aimlessly around the house.


He doesn't know this yet, but i'm pretty sure i can talk my benevolent super hero darling into a pair of muskovy ducks once we get settled in with our new schedule.  At least i'm hoping i can.


Don't forget the bees.  They're coming, probably before the ducks.  

I think we'll be back to routine farmy-ness before we know it.  It'll just be a tighter schedule to keep it going.


In only three days, i have become newly enamored with that wonderful drink, early in the morning and on the way home in the evening.


My super hero cooking husband has been fixing dinner and having it ready for me when i get home in the evening.  It is a great blessing to have a husband who understands the finer skills.

That is all of my random thoughts and updates for today.


  1. Glad to hear how things are going :)

  2. i love it all!!!! i sometimes wish my loving man could cook ~ sometimes =)

  3. I understand feeling like to have to stick to a certain subject matter and you can't change.... none of us are only what our blogs are about, and none of us should pretend we are.

    I'm sometimes tempted to put more Fragile X facts and stuff on the sidebar of my blog, but that's not my whole life, and I don't want to shove it down people's throats, you know?

    You go ahead and change and live your life and blog about whatever inspires you!


What do you think about that?
