We are so busy. I feel like I’m chasing my tail. Working in the garden. Milking. Mowing the lawn. Inside work. Outside work. Fun. Fun. Fun!

I can’t believe it’s almost time for the kids to start school. I miss them when they are at school. I get more things accomplished when they are gone. But it takes a few days of reorienting before I can get organized.

Hope everyone has a lovely day!
