Andy’s got jury duty this week. It’s so strange for him to not be on the farm, but the kids and I decided to take a little off-farm trip of our own, so we went to town for some errands and fun. I didn’t take any photos of our time at the library, park or fire station, but we had such a sweet time and I’m so glad we left the housework for a few hours and enjoyed our little town for the morning.
I am clearly a ‘home-body’ and it isn’t unusual for our minivan to stay parked for multiple days in a row. There’s so much to do at home and around the farm that leaving it all behind can sometimes seem intimidating and exhausting. I used to be a busy, busy, busy gotta go, go, go gal. I’m so thankful that I have the opportunity to stay at home, take care of my family and live in a peaceful, beautiful place. I’m thankful that God has given me the opportunity to be a ‘home-body.’ It’s not something I ever desired and it wasn’t modeled for me in my youth, but it’s a beautiful thing and I’m glad for it!
