Some mornings or even entire days are spent unwinding, winding, winding down and around just to wind up again. Farm work can often be nothing more than a series of repetitive tasks. Whatever you do today you will definitely have to do again tomorrow. Or eventually. So I try to remind myself just as repetitively appreciate and be grateful for the small things: pretty flowers, mist over the pastures, deliciously fresh kale, warm milk, the joy of being able to work outdoors when the sun is shining. And then go on repeating.
