On our working days we strive to keep things orderly, low-key and as stress-free for our animals as humanly possible. Over time we have developed a system that flows easily and works efficiently. Working days were not always easy, especially with my learning curve but many moons have passed and finally I have come full circle. I still have a lot to learn but I am light years ahead of where I started seven years ago. Getting comfortable with the work and having a system in place is the pivot point between chaos and calm. I opt for calm, safe and fun for all involved.
At our ranch we are strong stewards of the land. We work hard to be grass farmers so our animals stay happy and healthy, a task my husband spends all year working on and the fruits of his labor have paid off. Three years into our new home and you wouldn't recognize the place. His attention to the soil and our rotational grazing has changed the face of our ranch. It is a work in progress but I am proud of all that he has accomplished in such a short time. Our land is our most precious resource so it is our main focus as we care for the animals that graze it.
As Winter slowly creeps in it is my time to slow down and focus on other things. Building a cocoon of my favorite books, research, writing and exploring helps to renew my spirit in the slow time. There is still work to be done but the pace slows as the temperatures drop, I embrace the change.
Winter is coming, build your own cocoon and enjoy! Thank you to all of our family and friends! We couldn't do this without you!
Love, Live, Enjoy and Share the Season!
