If you follow along on this blog, you’ll know I’ve pretty much taken the last month off.
I’ve been busy…..creating something special.
Between broken computers, exhaustion and nausea, I’ve taken a little R & R.
In all honesty, it’s been tough to get off the couch!
I’m sure I’ll be posting more about all of this later, but for now, here are some pics of “The Farm”.
We spent the last weekend there. It’s such a beautiful time of year.
I thought I would try to capture a bit of the farm nostalgia for you.
This is where I grew up.
Growing up on a farm is a blessing!
You are taught hard work, and strangely enough, you begin to like it.
Everyday happenings on a farm are what many children dream of!
Raising your own animals, riding horses, daily swim dates, and playing with cousins for hours.
Open fields of adventure are right in front of you, anywhere you turn.
…and the beauty of a farm is hard to match!
I grew up on a farm in the desert. The sunrises and sunsets are unbeatable in my opinion.
My parent’s farmhouse is the iconic farmhouse.
….that they actually created out of a 1950′s rancher!
They did a terrific job of pulling off the classic farmhouse look, by slowly making changes year after year.
…oh and then there was that year they added on an entire story. Another year they built a double-car garage from scratch…cupola and all!
I should have made a point of getting pictures of those, I guess.
Abandoned relics jog memories of yester-year.
Remembering fort-filled days in the apricot trees.
…and you’re glad you still have a place where your children can go and taste a little of what you’re child-hood was like.
(Although when they visit the farm, there is little work for them, ample amounts of really good food, and their grandparents take them on small farm adventures everyday.)
It’s no wonder they always want to move there!
Many things never change, and it’s nice that way.
So we go, visit, know that even though this seems like an almost perfect place, and may be a little sad that our kids don’t get to spend everyday there, I have to remember that it’s no ones permanent home. God gives us all different lives to live and in the end, Heaven is far better than even the farm.
Here’s to hoping I can get something done today! I had a good day yesterday, hopefully it’s the beginning of the end of the first trimester!
