Thirty Short Hours
This has been a whirlwind weekend. It was our first overnight travel for a soccer tournament and prepping to get out of town at the peak of planting, pruning, transplanting and taking care of baby ducks and chickens inspired quick bursts of productivity in very short segments of time. Yes, there is an annual tournament scheduled for Mother's Day weekend, but I say what better way to spend the day than by being a mom! The tournament itself was great and deserving a post of its own. When we got home this evening with storms approaching and spring heavy in the air we threw open all of the windows, walked the property and marveled at the massive amounts of change that can occur within thirty short hours. We were truly awarded by the first lilac blooms opening outside our kitchen window. A deep breath of gratitude for the spring that seems to have arrived, a beautiful farm to work and an amazing family to share it with. A Happy Mother's Day indeed.
