(isn't she lovely?)
there has been rest, rain, messy hair, and pajamas in the afternoon. there has been art, sewing, board games, and many cups of tea.
there was a late season land owner's tag... many hours logged hunting, butchering, packaging, and cleaning... and now a freezer full of good meat. i am full of gratitude for the life that was lost so that we can feed our family good lean protein another year. i am also so thankful for all of the help we had with the process this year... i do believe it was the best one yet.
there is another quiet weekend ahead of us, and i am truly learning to love winter. the quiet, the calm, the rest... time actually slows down during these few short months and although i long for that warm sun... i can wait... and savor what i have right now.
