Slowing Down


In the summer the days are long, but they’re never long enough.  At times keeping up with all the work that needs doing seems next to impossible.

But now the days are short, and so is the list of things that must be done.  Of course there is always work to be done on a farm, regardless of the season.  But this time of year there are few things that absolutely have to be done now.  So the pace slows down.  Nature rests, and so can we.

It’s also the time of year when we can enjoy a little time off the farm.

Saturday night we went to a concert.  Yesterday we went to a play.

I love the long busy days of summer.  But it’s nice to slow down sometimes too.
