I'm not watching anyone struggle with a horrible illness or anything bad. Life is just going full steam ahead and I'm running as hard as I can to keep up.
The farm is truly a place I can catch my breath even though there is much going on there. There is something peaceful in the tending of flowerbeds, chopping out sticker burrs, or helping Bruce with the wedding/art studio projects.
It's been overwhelming for this introvert at the sheer amount of information being thrown my way. It's good but I feel like I'm falling further and further behind. I need time to work through it at a pace that doesn't overwhelm me.
On top of that is all the things our city house needs...taking care of two places has been taxing; one always seems to suffer over the other. But I'm doing my best to refresh spaces, purge, and help Bruce where I can on the bigger things like painting the exterior (colors have been chosen and Bruce is repairing siding, etc).
Of course, the farmhouse has priority right now because of the wedding. It's fun to see it all come together.
Then there's my little blog. At least, I'm not trying to make a living off it. It's my online diary of progress at the farm. Taking pictures, editing them, and trying to come up with interesting topics takes lots of time. Things feel forced and boring right now when I want them to be interesting and amazing.
I guess I'm telling you all of this to ask you for grace if I post less or fall flat. I'll continue to share but I truly feel God wants me to concentrate on my art and develop that - however that looks. I won't lie - I'd love for my art to be successful and all. But it won't happen if I don't get in there and work at it.
I do have a couple of posts coming up to tie some loose ends up. Then I'm going to concentrate on those important life events. Hopefully, I'll come back to blogging weekly once the wedding is over and things settle down.
I hope you have a wonderful and blessed weekend.
