Balance… The dictionary defines it as “a state of equilibrium”
As one can plainly see, I have not quite struck the nail on the head with this balance thing for the past few months. This blog is very important to me as it is a written history of our journey, a journey that we begun just about the time that I started this blog. This blog is for me, it is for my family, it is our past, present and future. It’s purpose is to be our story. If along the way we help others along their journey with a quick tip, recipe or nudge to do something that they thought was impossible, or even a laugh…that’s great! Yay!
So…Back here I am. I seldom get quiet time with all of the happenings around here, but when I am blogging, people seem to leave me alone.
I’ll take it! 🙂
My friends…this has been our busiest season yet for our businesses and being so, I got pulled away from much that I do. There was less time for homemade items and new recipes. Our Christmas was a little lighter on the homemade gifts this year, but fun none the less. My dreams of sitting near the fire reading (with all of the down time that winter should bring) hasn’t happened yet….but it is good to have a busy business! With the business, balance is harder to come by though…balance with the kids homeschooling, balance with our farm (thankfully only 15 chickens are hanging out with us this winter), balance in our family life and marriage, balance with the household, balance in general. I am beginning to find balance again…through routine and schedules. I am NOT a routine person…let me say that again. I am NOT a routine person. I much prefer to just do what comes, however with all that is coming at me lately, I’ve decided to try the routine route and see what come of it. Sticking to it will be the hard part…but I believe that it will make my life easier…at least I hope it will.
All said and done…we had a wonderful Holiday albeit busy. Hope yours was wonderful too<3
