At first glance Ellery appears to be enjoying the blissful warm showers of Springtime. Look Closer!
Yes, that is snow! She was freezing her little toes off when I shot this picture! What I want to know is when will this end? I am ready for Spring. Mother Nature doesn't seem to agree. About every 4 days this Spring we have had a snowstorm! Combine never ending snow and brand new baby and you see why I am fighting unbearable "stir-craziness!"
The weather isn't the only unexpected annoyance. I have found that since beginning this company, deadlines have a different meaning in the small business world than I had always thought. Essentially, it is pretty useless to set a deadline. Manufacturers, independent contractors, everyone has there own ideas, and I am definetly not in charge (yet?). It is like saying, from this day forward April 30th there will be no more snow. Yeah right. So what this means is I am desperately trying to stifle my rigid natural tendencies and become more flexible. I think these snowstorms are trying to teach me something on more than one level.
t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.
