Looking for the silver lining in our third sick day and a week worth of plans shot. I was meant to be at the hospital today helping a friend labor but find myself instead cleaning up vomit intermittent with making chicken noodle soup and administering any aid I can. Canceled photo shoot two weeks in a row due to weather while the work load gets higher and higher (along with the water in my basement). 

In all though I feel blessed and encouraged this week, despite the circumstances. What gets you through rainy days (literal and figurative?). Collin after saying “this is the wowst day evew” asked if we could watch a movie together tonight. I think it’s a plan. 

181 / homemade coffee honey coconut oil latte (blend with cream or milk till frothy) 

182 / clean bedding 

183 / rain 

184 / wild grapevine swings 

185 / new curtains and shined plant leaves

ps. A friend sent me this article on Love and I thought I’d share. A few, ok, all of these hit a little close to home. Relationships are so hard and I’m not even in one!

  1. I am trying to get in the habit of praying more when things get tough. Talking to my family certainly helps, but prayer helps me more in the long run to refocus on the big picture. Hope your little ones are feeling better soon!

  2. Rainy days are tough. Rainy sick days even worse! On those occasions I love watching nature programmes It helps to get me outside mentally! And I drink ridiculous quantities of tea! Hang in there!

  3. My ‘kids’ are grown-up. So, when I need some unconditional love, I literally sit in the barnyard with my goats (baby kids at the moment) and sheep… and let their sweet lips explore my pockets. Or, I make something with wool/wet felting (no ‘tools’ required).

    Philippians 4:6–7

    “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.”

  4. I recently stumbled across your Instagram and haven’t been able to shake it from my brain. You remind me so much of my older sister whom
    I absolutely adore; earthy, organic, natural. Beautiful, talented, eccentric. I will forever follow your blog because you embody not only what I strive to be but what I consider the “American dream”. You’re my spirit animal 🐑
