It seems every time I think I will get on a roll with things, life has other plans. This is the first time I feel like I have been able to sit and just be.
There were videos I started to record, they are waiting to be edited. There isn’t much content however, so much has gone on in the last four weeks, I didn’t feel right posting it in a video. I tend to ramble and say too much. It’s basically just farm content.
I will share a few things here, though I won’t add detail. I just want you to know what has been going on. While I have big dreams of peaceful farm life with my family, it doesn’t always happen how we want it.
Four weeks ago today, Toph was involved in an accident with Runa. He was riding the dirt bike and she ran into him. While Runa is just fine (confirmed by the vet), Toph has a broken collarbone and has been laid up in the living room recovering.
While in my big dreams, my children help out in the garden and with the animals. Reality is more of me taking care of the animals and breaking up fights every 5-10 minutes. So sadly my garden is a hot mess these days.
Two weeks ago a cousin passed away, we are still waiting for find out the cause. It was very unexpected and I’m still trying to wrap my head around it.
Last week my nephew passed away after a long battle with cancer. It had been a almost ten year battle, but it still came as a shock. I had only known this nephew for a year and he left a big impression on me.
I haven’t really felt like I have had much time to get a grip on everything going on, it’s like a dominos effect, before you can get used to a new normal the next one falls.
At this time all I can do continue to focus on what’s going on here at the farm and continue to tackle the garden and figure out a way to keep my kids happy.
They are 10 & 13 now and they are kids dealing with not being able to see friends, not able to do the normal summer routine.
I think the entire world is having a rough time of it right now, I just want to say I am thinking of everyone. I hope you are all safe and healthy.
Also before I go, this one I feel is important at all times. Please teach your kids to cover their mouths when they cough. Leif and I both have comprised immune systems, however the grocery shopping is currently on me right now with Toph out of commission. This past Wednesday an unmasked teenager came up to me at the grocery store and coughed on me.
It’s just plain rude & disgusting in normal times, let alone right now. Let’s teach our kids better.
Have a great day folks, until next time.
