Random Graces #7

Moments from our House

I took a week, or so, off from blogging because our family is in the middle of a pretty big transition. And we've just barely made it. Jeremy's basically been working two full-time jobs the last couple of months. So it's been rough. On me, on Jeremy, on the kids, and on the house. Oh, the house. It's bad. I think it took the worst hit.

But that's all changing, Jeremy quit one of the jobs, and is now full time with Spring Lake Family Farms. It's the Aquaponic farm we've been building with our family. So no more crazy, changing schedule, and no more excessively long days and weeks. We're really excited about a new normal, a routine, and a schedule that doesn't change every third day. We aren't there yet, it's only been a week, but we're working on it.

Now that we've made it through the first week, it's time to fix this house. Cleaning, yes, but it also needs to be set up better. I'm a big fan of making your house work for you, but I haven't really done that with this house. More on that later, but this house needs some new shelves, so Jeremy has been put to work again.


Baseball has started around here too. Gideon plays coach pitch and is the catcher for his team. He loves it. My only problem with it is that occasionally some of the adults take the game far too seriously.


And this is my road. And I absolutely love that.


And, I almost forgot, but everything is planted and ready to grow!

Jimmy Fallon #MyKidIsWeird Oh, this made me laugh! My kids are weird too.

I would love to learn more about the world of herbals, and right now the Herbal Academy is offering 15% off their courses. I've been a member of the Herbarium, and it's fantastic. But the courses would help so much. The offer code is HERBALIST15.

I don't know if you've read any of Wendell Berry's books, but if you haven't, you should. (I'd start with Hannah Coulter.) Beautiful, beautiful. But someone is making a documentary about Berry, and his life in rural Kentucky. It looks just as beautiful as his stories, and I can't wait to see it. It's called The Seer: A Portrait of Wendell Berry.

That's it, folks! I hope both of your week is filled with peace and grace. And mine too!
