It’s been a lot of scrapbooking talk here lately – and here is yet another post. Kind off. Sorry.
Tattered Pear is show cased at The Daily Digi today – with their contributing kit Bookmarked. I loved all the whimsy doodles, the sayings and the colors. I found the kit perfect for a page about our love of books, no, about the FARM. LOL, I love to stretch a kit!
This summer we got to spend a few days @ The Farm all by our selves. We loved it. So nice to have some time to just be at that lovely place that is so much a part of us (and in the future will be our home). The Farm is placed on a hilltop and the houses face straight south. It’s always somewhat windy, but the sun (if it’s not a cloudy day) shines all day long. It’s a calm and quiet place with breathtaking view. I love spending time there. I love that the farm do produce organic grain (oat, rye, wheat), and I look forward to get my hands dirty (literary) with the plowing and sowing. A farmers work are never finished and it’s a lot of things that needs fixing or someone’s attention, I feel worried about the finances and the big load of work related to keeping the farm alive. This is me hoping to find a way to refine the grains (or other produce) on the farm in the future and sell it directly from our own little farm shop. Ask me in 10 years if I managed to do it!!
To be honest, I’ve been thinking a lot about the farm lately, I’ve been saying I want to take over – and I do – but now that the time to do so draws closer I’m getting a bit scared. Can I do it all? Can I produce anything else than weeds? Can I plow snow in the winter? I’m not sure all of these has a big YES to them…, some might even have a big NO instead – and how do I handle that?
You get the idea? Lots of thoughts going on. And let me tell you this: my word for this year is FAITH and it is for sure about what I believe to be true; my Christian faith – but it is also very much about this; daring to have faith in my decisions and abilities. Daring to follow my dream.
