One of my favorite podcasters, Kendra Adachi of The Lazy Genius, frequently encourages listeners to “name what matters.” Her point is always that one can’t make decisions or prioritize tasks until we name what matters most to us right here, right now.
I try to do this as we enter each new stretch of time or season- name what matters to us as a family, to our farm, and in our lives.
During this time - roughly October through January- after the hectic spring and summer on our farm, what matters to us as a farm family is to kind of go quiet for awhile. To allow ourselves to breath, to not have to make our top priorities all things to do with the farm.
All this means is you might not hear from us as often during this stretch. We take a break from social media for a bit. We go for more walks and pull less weeds. We sit and watch more sunsets together on the back patio.
