All is quiet on the home front this week. Mark has been busy making firewood each day while I get jobs done around the house that needed to be done. We have been relaxing by the falls in the late afternoon when the shadows grow long and the pools are at their warmest for the day. We have been sleeping in a tad too.
So often our life is surprisingly busy and chaotic. Run here, go there, fix that, feed those. We jump from one small 'fire' to another without a general plan or rhythm to our days. I hate it. I love schedules and order. I love doing things with pauses in between to enjoy. We are trying to make changes and learning to say 'no' to help achieve this. We are examining our life and hope to be more intentional. We do this periodically, of course, have good intentions, then eventually we realize our life is careening off the chosen path again. The nice thing is that most of the time in life you can just get back on it.
An unexamined life is not worth living. Socrates.
