The exhaustion is setting in hard, and it seems there isn't enough time in the day to figure out which side is up. But, we keep plugging away at it, one foot in front of the other. There's a heat wave coming in that is worrisome, we've a bird problem with the berry bushes and things just aren't right around here in general. Maybe things will turn around next week.

Aww, I hope things will turn around for you on your homestead. I get discouraged sometimes too. So many projects, so little extra time. And homesteading is just hard sometimes. Be encouraged as you keep going one step at a time. I was feeling somewhat that way when I wrote the post I'm sharing, The Truth About Ridge Haven. We are not "there" yet, but baby steps are getting us closer to our goals than we were last month, and the month before. I'm sure it's the same for you.

Thanks for hosting again. And remember...tomorrow is another day...

Blessings, Laurie

Hi Laurie-
Thank you for your kind words. I suppose this is just a reminder that things can get overwhelming and that we maybe need to take a step back and spend some time on us. One step at a time is definitely our plan, its just that sometimes, yes, there are a lot of steps when we look at the big picture. Not just with the homestead directly, but with our lives and relationships as well-
Thank you:)
