Okay Farmgirls, I’m getting into it: the groove of new surroundings and new digs. I also have a little disclaimer: I’m getting over the flu…so this might be a bit disjointed/uninspired. I’m sorry, but please send me some healing thoughts to chase this headache and these body aches back to where they came from (not a nice place).
One of our last working days on the farm this season! Preparing to take the plastic off of a high tunnel. Ava is a daredevil on the ladder.
After a fairly stressful late September/early October (a bit about that in my most recent post), I have enjoyed over a week of relative relaxation. Moving is hard and stressful, it is a universal truth. Tensions run high, we eat terrible food, our bodies get tired from lifting and our minds fatigue after too much organizing and decision making.
Adrenaline, it’s what allows us to accomplish great feats and achieve natural highs. It also encourages our bodies to fight or flight in the face of danger. It makes us feel alive! Some people are adrenaline junkies…I am not one of them. Sure, a little excitement is great. I like the challenge of a black diamond while skiing or the occasional surge of energy when scared by something silly. I’ve even sky-dived and cliff jumped just for the experience. However, I am not one to go out chasing that rush of hormones.
Me cliff jumping in Grand Teton National Park several years ago. Evan made the cool picture!
