However if I'm honest there are lots of bad days too. Trying to live as sustainably as possible does create extra tasks. There are the days on which I wake feeling tired before I've begun. There are days on which I wake to a terrible mess in the morning.
There's the garden to water, seeds I should have sowed already, animals to care for, milking to be done, chaff to be bought, children to be taught, a house to clean, cooking to be done, clothes to be washed, appointments to be kept.....
I still need to make time for the children to enjoy the things children should.
The stale bread can't go in the chook bucket this time. I'll crumble it and pop it in the freezer when I get a chance so that I have breadcrumbs on hand. Ooops! Forgot. I've now found a green loaf in the pantry. Similarly the plums need attention. I've used most of the plums for preserving, jams and sauces. But there's one bag remaining. These plums are going soft so I'll turn them into more sauce. Ooops! Forgot. They've created their own version of a sauce by turning into slop as they waited for my attention.
Last night I was pickling as Belle and Hubby bottled cider. No time for dishes or a tidy up.
How I long for some consistency! Or more hours in the day.
