Feeling Myself Again and Back On Track

Thank you all for you emails of concern over my noticeable absence. As you know I took a second part time job just before Christmas and the schedule I was trying to keep along with work here at the farm and a house full of 7 people left me spinning, very stressed and tired with no time for anything fun.

I came to a point where I needed to make a change and fast. I would come home at night and not want to interact with the family, do any household activities I love, all I could do was wash up and go to bed to get up in the morning and start another stress filled day. I was down right grouchy all the time and could not give anyone or activity the careful attention they/it deserved.

I made the decision to give up that second job. I came home shut the front gate and did absolutely nothing demanding for two weeks. I slept in, spent time at the barn, worked on some new soap. I spent an entire day just playing with Miss Daisy and the animals. I took time to visit friends that I haven’t seen in months and most importantly I found the routine for my simple life I love.

I am happy to say the gate is now open and I am back to working 2-3 days a week for the same family I was. I feel much better and am once again enjoying day to day life here at the farm.

I will spend today working on a set of activity cards using the sight words. You see Miss Daisy can now see herself as a reader and is interested in words and not just simple letters. We moved the book case to a special spot in her room and filled it full of books she in the past had no interest in. Very exciting!

I also will finish up a few tags I have been working on for some new fun spring/summer inspired soaps. As always our Etsy shop is open and does have a few new fun things in there. I have not updated the Country Store at Blogger and probably won’t for some time. These past couple of weeks I have been enjoying the Lavender filled Dryer Sachets and the Lavender filled organza bags. These lavender stuffed bags I have tucked all over the house. I love the healing power of lavender.

I wish you all a wonderful fun filled day.
