It’s not always about the projects or the chores here on the homestead. Sometimes its about spending quality time with the dogs. I have to remind myself to slow down and pause every once in a while because they don’t live to 100 like we do. I get 15, maybe 20 years with them and that’s it. You have to make time for play because if you say “once i finish this project…” there will always be another project behind it. You have to go outside, throw a stick around, chase some geese or armadillos, and watch the dogs enjoy running free because you may have “later” but they don’t.
