I posted this on Facebook over the weekend. It's still crazy the things you go through and the thoughts and plans you find yourself in the middle of when you start a new lifestyle.
chicken coops and bunkers and building plans | dreaming of attic fan installation | what the heck is a heat pump | googling poisonous plants | planning fall gardens | what is a fall crop | when does this tree/bush/plant bloom | where do cicadas come from | where do they go | just how much gravel does it take to re-gravel a driveway | is the chicken pen reinforced enough | how much ventilation do chickens need anyway | how many japanese beetle can you catch in one season | don't forget to check on the apple/hickory nuts/cherry trees | are the blackberries still producing | how many flies are actually going to come into my house when the cows are in our field | don't forget to bring in the wash off the line before it fades in the sun | will i get to the tomatoes before the bugs do | french drains and sump pumps and so much water this season
Country life = Overwhelmed with blessings, lessons, and cucumbers!
For everything there is a season,
and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant,
and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace.
Ecclesiastes 3:1, ESV
