This afternoon though I got to do farm stuff, nothing ground breaking, just feeding sheep, but I loved it. Simple straightforward in the outdoors, despite the number of gates I had to open and close and the return trips to pick up hats and drink bottles Muddy Baby Boy threw out the window, it was invigorating.
It was also slightly depressing driving through paddocks with no feed, watching the sheep race toward you when they see the big yellow feeder bin on the back but I was out and about so I put that stuff aside.
Somehow just being in the garden isn't enough, to drive over the farm and see the sheep and what's happening from block to block just gets straight to my heart and lifts me, that's what this afternoon did, despite the tiredness and crazy brain my whole mood was lifted and for that I'm grateful.
