So I have decided that since I shared the bad with you yesterday, today I will share my top 4 reasons to be grateful today.
This photo is of farmer Bren sharing his enthusiasm for heirloom vegies with the crowds at the Home Ideas Show on the weekend. I could go on and on and get all mushy about Bren but today is my grateful day and I don't want to cry. All I'll say, is that yesterday when I was the grumpy queen, Bren suggested that Jazzy's lack of school pants was a priority and that I'd better go into the sewing room and make her some. Forget the mess and the laundry and the dinner, I had to sew Jazzy some pants. LOVE him!
Of course my gorgeous girls who delight me, inspire me, make me laugh, make me want to tear my hair out and who I adore.
Farming is crazy hard 24/7 days work don't get me wrong, but I am so proud to be part of the wonderful, sustainable, creative organic vision that is Daylesford Organics. From the very beginning we wanted to grow great food with integrity and love and I believe we are succeeding.
I think about them all the time. I make plans, I have ideas, I am always in the middle of 10 projects, some get finished, some get forgotten. Is it love? Is it obsession? I don't know but I do know that I am grateful for the ability to have these hobbies that bring me constant joy and satisfaction.
4)Blogging & bloggers.
Thank you for the inspiration, the feedback, the wonderful packages in the mail (I won the amazing prize above over at Ideyspidey. Thanks Sarah Jo I love it all!), the comments, the way you make me feel normal and the way you share your knowledge and your stories with me.
