Balancing a professional career with a rural lifestyle hasn't always been easy, but I think I'm getting the hang of it. When it's springtime there's no greater joy than sprucing up the farm, including spraying Round Up next to all the houses and outbuildings.
The day was beautiful. Temps are warming up, and the fields are eager to be cultivated. One of my kids came over today and cut a beautiful flower off a bush he planted over 20 years ago. He was so excited, and so was I. My daughter brought me some freshly baked banana bread. Two of our goats should be giving birth shortly. The sheep are as sweet as ever. Tomorrow I hope to spread some fresh mulch around the trees in the front yard.
There is always something to do here the whole year round.
