Too Much Time Away

Lots to do in so little time. Make a note-- Can't work full time, early, five days. Not time to do anything else much. Only get the most critical done and I am not sure about that.

One good thing I did this week was make some felt out of some mediocre fleece I have had for a long time. This Saturday is the Fall Family Festival (or something like that) and I am going to make some large sheets of felt with kids and their families to put over a small yurt that is being constructed for the play trail at Boxerwood. It will be the largest sheets I have attempted. We are going to do it on a big tarp. It should be fun. The small samples are working out great.

I will take pictures! Something I have not seemed to accomplish lately. Oh well, I am not going to beat myself up over what hasn't gotten done. Sunday, my one day home, I toured the farm appreciating what has been accomplished. Quite a bit overall I would say.

Today, at work as a guidance counselor, I did an activity in three classes (2nd, 3rd, and 4th). The theme was "building our character". It was to recognize our character traits; checking in on what positive traits we have and see what we want to improve on. I would say I should try to improve on my organization. I think I do pretty good on what I call the biggies (compassion, respect etc.). I really am enjoying the job but it takes toooo much of my time, especially since I am not so organized. The animals think so too.

The thing I hate the most, is driving out in the morning as they all look my way and sometimes they start to come down when I open the chicken coop. I just want to stay with them and play with them. I keep telling them it is only a couple of more week. I can't wait.

  1. You are going to appreciate your animals and free time more than you ever did before when your commitment is over.
