A Day in the Life of a Modern Homesteader Fall Edition

What a life we choose to live! It is wonderful and full of so many blessings! But it certainly doesn’t leave us much down time! We are continually on the go, aren’t we?

I’d like to view this fall edition as a time capsule. It will be a wonderful memory to cherish and a wonderful way to look back. Looking back with the attitude of “I wish” never gets anyone anywhere. But to look back in the following years to see just how far we’ve come can be inspiring and totally worth it.

We will look back and say, remember when?? Wow, where did the years go! Look at how little you were! You were so small and we did so much together! What a wonderful time in our lives! Remember when we had that goat? And remember how I couldn’t keep you out of the water troughs?

These years. These precious years. Timeless moments. Right here, right now and gone forever.

Except in our memories. 

I desire to give my children a full childhood. Filled with memories of living, and laughing and working together.

That’s what this modern homesteader’s heart longs for. A simpler life, free from the pull of processed time and food. A life that can provide. A life not dictated by stock markets, the economy or who wins the elections.

This life is hard work but so full.

A day in the life. A day written down in history. A day like all the others and like no other.

THIS IS YOUR MAMA TALKIN'! I don't remember ever seeing you move so fast at washing dishes when you were living at your childhood home! Hmm...I remember fast talkin' and speedy exiting. But, actually, it was really fun to take a peek.
