Week 5 of the Quarantine from Covid-19. I wasn’t going to blog about this, but I decided I would to mark this time here at the farm. So far, we have been blessed that none of us have been sick. We have been able to work both at the farm and our other full-time job. Everything is different, but the world has kept turning, in some ways slower, and in other ways at a break-neck speed.
Here is our current office. We are blessed that we can work from home, and the it has been extremely busy. However, it has left little time to enjoy a slower pace. We can, however, take care of the animals, cook meals, and do some DIY projects, and it is better than spending eight hours at our office. We just do a mad dash when the phone starts ringing. (Notice my flower garlands I made the other day, hanging on the opposite chair. I didn’t notice those when I snapped this pic!)
We have been staying home, and not eating out. We have been ordering in groceries, and only going out once or twice a week at most. We joked the other day, that there is one iron skillet in the kitchen that hasn’t been cold since the quarantine began.
One thing I have started doing is an attempt to slow down and enjoy the morning on the farm.
Normally, I don’t get to do this because I need to be at the office. Want to join me for a quick walk? Grab a cup of coffee, and lets go.
Lets head down to the garden for a minute. The primrose is popping up, and the kale we planted might need a bit of water before it gets too hot this morning.
I always love the log cabin in the evenings during the golden hour, but it is so peaceful in the morning. It always looks cool and crisp…..even though it was already fairly hot this morning by 8 am. Let’s head on over to the coop.
As always, Popeye is already on guard duty. Ever since Chachi died, Popeye has taken on the responsibility of caring for everyone. He keeps an eye out, watches the skies, and sends out alerts for any threats he perceives. We stocked up on chicken feed, bedding, and rabbit feed right before the stay-at-home orders
Hmmm…Wonder what that smell is….I am going to investigate.
I do wish you could have smelled the honeysuckle this morning. When it is in full bloom like this, and the humidity is up, the entire farmyard smells like heavy perfume, that wasn’t what you were expecting…..was it?
The snapdragons looked so cheerful. I love planting something that looks so happy at my back door. Well, that is all the time I have for my walk this morning.
I will say that Sugar has enjoyed the quarantine, and the location of my new office……. Now, to answer the phones and figure out what to cook for supper.
