Sometimes of a Monday morning, the sun is fierce and the list is long and the back is weary. But we look around then, too, and we see this good good life, and we get back to work.
All these photos are from this morning. I once swore I’d never have a smartphone, that it didn’t fit in with the ways we’re trying to slow down and pay attention — but boy am I happy to discover it’s just another tool. It’s the way I use it that matters. I love tucking it, with its tiny camera, into my pocket and setting off for a walk on the farm with the little guy.
For those who are curious: the pigs have been in a small yard their first week here, so we can finish the fencing around their whole two acres and so they can get a sense of where their home is before exploring all the nooks and crannies of their corner of the farm. We were a bit worried they’d find the big space a little frightening. But they’re settling in sweetly, and the fence is almost done, so we’re excited to give them full run of their acres, sometime tonight or tomorrow!
