Chickens and Life and Such


Hello, and pardon my absence!

While I have been busy, it is not my excuse for this month long break from blogging. No, this time around my excuse is mental exhaustion. I won’t go into too many details, but, four has been an incredibly challenging age for us, the hot weather has returned (send help!), and I am emptying our storage unit, sifting through thirty two years of memories and deciding what memories to keep and what memories must go. Written out it looks like more than I ought to share, but there it is.

The past month has had this introvert turning inward even more than usual. I have been questioning my roll and what I think is best for our family. I am trying my hardest to live in the moment, but now that summer is here, I find it hard. Four more months of 90+ degree weather makes me want to scream, then pack up my favorite belongings, as well as my kids and husband, and head for the hills. Seriously.

But, onward and upward. Lucy and I spent a half an hour the other day working on a list of activities for the summer that are fun and will keep us cool. We included things like going out for ice cream, making home made ice cream, trips to the science center and museum, a visit to the tide pools, a mountain trip, and her first visit to the drive in. I think we might just make it through alive.

Happy solstice! I hope that you are in a place where summer is the most exciting season of the year. One day soon it will be for us.

Much love and thanks for following along. <3
