|Our first winter storm of the year. |
This is my view from my living room window.
At the time, I was a stay-at-home mom with a small toddler and two older children. Our hobby farm was thriving.
Some of my best thinking is done on the riding lawnmower, while cutting grass on the two flat acres of our ten-acre property. Here's where I adopted this blog's slogan "Hobby Farmer by Day, Author by Night."
Since then, my life has changed.
My toddler is now in Kindergarten, we can no longer claim to have a hobby farm (though we plan to rectify this come spring), I've once again joined the workforce, and I write every spare moment I get in between cooking, cleaning, working, laundry, church, and extra-curricular activities.
My new slogan is "Substitute Teacher by Day, Author by Whenever-I-Get-A-Chance-To-Write."
Not as catchy, but this is life for me at this moment in 2016. And that's okay. I'm enjoying my new job, I'm still plugging away on my stories during lunch breaks, while I'm cooking dinner, and after the kids go to bed (on the rare nights I can actually hold my eyes open).
Three years from now will my life's slogan change? Count on it.
But that's what keeps life interesting.
