Not Mutually Exclusive – One-Liner Wednesday

Just because you don’t trust someone doesn’t mean you don’t care about them.


Something I realized while watching a show with my niece.

Proper Tea – One-Liner Wednesday

Sitting here, listening to my nephews (from my two eldest sisters) discuss the correct way to make tea.


Seriously, I’m listening to two teens and an 8-year old discuss all the many ways you can make tea, but which is the ‘correct’ way and just how much sugar should or shouldn’t be added.

It’s just been the four of us during the day this week and thought there are times when I’m super frustrated, I am finding that it’s actually pretty fun. I have never in my life been so outnumbered by boys.

Disappear – Snippet

There were times when Lila just wanted to throw up her hands in defeat, turn and then stomp away, but in the end, she never could bring herself to do it.


This was supposed to be more, but I got the one sentence out and everything else that was supposed to come after vanished like goat milk that my dogs can reach and my brain refused to give me any more.

Melting

So often I am worn out
My mind or body or both
Only still going from gravity’s pull
Keep forgetting to stop
Even as the rubber burns

My sister recently reminded me that I have to step back from working all the time on things (the farm) and do things that I enjoy and not just what would help out around the farm. Working is good and being able to help with things is also good, but there are times when you need to not be burning the oil, whether it be midnight or not.

Poverty is…

Crying in happiness when you first get chickens because now you don’t have to cry inside everytime you throw away any food that’s gone bad.

Quality Time – Thankful Thursday

I’ve gotten to spend a lot of time with my sister’s youngest boy this week and I’m really glad. We’ve had a lot of fun and gotten quite a bit of work done as well. His siblings have spent the last week visiting other family members in the next valley over so it’s just been us during the day.

We’ve had a lot of fun.

Check out the original Thankful Thursday.
