January Rest

We have been very ambitious here on our Little Farm after not quite 3 years. And, we are happy to report, we have been very successful in so many areas. We have had areas where we have not been successful. But we are ever learning.

I admit that we have wanted to get things done and now. Even Mother has commented: "I just don't see how you have gotten all of this done."

I am reminded of the story of the Tortoise and the Hare. I think we have been Wild Hares these last 3 years. We have looked forward to this for so long and now we are living the reality. It is very easy to "fast forward ahead" without facing the reality we need to take care of ourselves too.

After becoming more fully aware of how tired we were, we decided to take January off. While we still have had chores and routine responsibilities to attend to, we have "taken it easy". That was a great plan. Naps are good. Rest is essential.

Nature takes a rest in the Winter. January Rest (and likely more) is exactly what we have needed. With that rest, the Batteries are beginning to get recharged and even more creative ideas are beginning to unfold.
