This Adventure is just Beginning...
Autumn has settled in at the Micro Farm. The maples on the property are absolutely breath taking. The leaves are perfect for pressing if you can get them before the rain turns them slimy. It is in these cool, rainy evenings that I sit down and my mind spills over with all that I could be doing. Decluttering. Preserving. Reading. Crafting. Putting the Garden to bed. Dreaming about next year. Turning my gaze back to homemaking. All these things loom large in my mind. And I often alternate between the extremes of excitement about all the possibilities and overwhelm about all the responsibilities.
I am no different than any other over-thinker on the planet. I have the ability to lay in bed at night and spin a conversation I had 8 months ago and more specifically, one little awkward phrase I used, over and over again. Tumbling the response this way and the bit of body language that way. I can worry over the nuts and bolts of any insignificant dialogue with the best. And with Shabbar gone, I find myself in that place more than usual. But it is in these moments of overwhelm, however, that I keep me looking forward. Perhaps it is a smidgen of empathy for others in that same struggle. Perhaps it is a wistful desire to believe that I am not the only one. And we are never the only one.
It is in these moments that I am most moved to build Wooly Thyme into more than a CSA. More than a place to eat Indian food in the summer Shabbar-bq. I want to alleviate Mommy-guilt. I want to provide pick-me-ups and delicious foods made from real ingredients for your family. I want to give you a bag of veggies every week and a recipe binder in the spring so that you feel brave enough to try them.
Simply put, I want to grow happiness. And I want to deliver it to your doorstep.
Please journey with me, as I learn and dream and grow Wooly Thyme Micro Farm. Read along, follow along, learn along, dream along. The adventure is just beginning!
