I know it is Spring on the farm, as flowers are blooming and bushes and trees are budding. Also, I got out the mower and spent a few hours mowing the grass. Ah, the smell of freshly cut grass! Of course, that will be an activity that will be repeated about every two weeks or so, until well into Fall.
Here on the farm, we also are in waiting mode, as there is a mare about to foal. Such excitement!
After a very wet winter, and a record amount of precipitation, the amount of mud on the farm has been incredible. I will be glad when the mud is gone. Lately, the weather has been somewhat forgiving. While it may rain a bit, then the sun comes out, and then it rains again. Those breaks in the weather make the days so much more bearable. And the last couple of days, have been much drier. There are places where the mud has begun to dry up a bit. It’s so promising!
The weekend is the Tiny House Conference (April 7-9) in Portland, Oregon. As someone who currently owns and lives in a tiny house, I’ve been invited to attend the “C” session on Saturday. I really don’t participate in the tiny house movement per se, so it might be interesting to attend the Conference. I suppose by simply downsizing and moving into a tiny house on wheels, I am a part of the movement. Perhaps I have something I can contribute at the Conference, and also here in this blog.
I will close this blog entry by saying that I have no regrets about downsizing, and I am quite happy in my comfortable home. It fits my lifestyle and suits my needs for this season in my life.
