The 300th day of 2010
55 Days until Winter
I see living on a farm and trying to do so sustainably as a series of adjustments. Much of what I'm doing now, I did before, or grew up seeing done, now I do it with more thought and with a different attitude. Menu planning and going to the grocerie , keeping house, feeding my family, were all in my life before I started living on my farm.The farm is teaching me to do things more deliberately and with a more generous and with more passion. No one asked for change, that probebly would not have worked.
Living on a farm and "Living the simple Life" takes work and planning.
As the seasons change, so do the needs and the ruitines. I have been in a funk, I am not pleased in the lack of action and progress I have made recently in regaurds to living simply. I was quite pleased with my ruitine and the progress or growth I had seen, but not so much latley.I ran the dryer a number of times over the week end and have gone to the coffee shop every day, for weeks. I am not sure what caused this lull, I am going to blame day light savings, for a lack of something better.We are approaching day light savings , I am commiting to my self to re focus on my goals. In the next few days you will see a focus on rebuilding my commitment, the changes I make or the things I return to and new idea's. You will see more cooking, budgeting / menu planning with purpose and I need to get organized (I plan to tacle the pantry).
I like saving money, but there's no question of us going without , healthy, and tasty meals. We like to eat ALOT, and I take too much pleasure in cooking something I have been doing mostly on the week ends.I need to plan better for all meals including Monday -Friday .
