I shared on the blog today a new path I am heading on. A path I feel needs my full attention and focus. For that reason I am changing my social media a little.  I wont be posting to the blog for the foreseeable future because I have started a new one called www.creatingslow.com . So I am going to use this Instagram account as a micro blog instead at least once a week.  I also am trying to grow my art Instagram account which is here @creatingslow and I would love you to give it some love   I… Love You All, Told You So, New Journey, Amazing Adventures, Paths, New Baby Products, How To Start A Blog, At Least, Foreseeable Future

This is going to throw my grid off totally and I am going against all the Instagram  gods and laws but I dont care. Over the last few weeks I have re found a passion of mine and it seems to be taking me on a little roller coaster of a ride. I have turned into a person who has a little bag of art supplies with her all the time and I spend my free time doodling. Its the first time in a long time I feel content and relaxed. I am delighted to have found my way back to this love. You can see more… Roller Coaster, Free Time, Art Supplies, Grid, Law, Passion, Content, Abstract, Instagram

Wouldnt it be nice when you set off on a path it would go pretty straight. That there wouldnt be too many bumps along the way and that the universe would let you just have a slightly easier time even for a little while. . This weeks has been one of those weeks.

None of it is things that cant be sorted but just for once even for a while feck off universe and pick on someone else !!! .

I wrote a blog post today ( link is in my bio if you want a read ) about a new fear I have of showing my face on stories or even on my grid.

Life had become very stuck in a stressful routine. A routine that there seemed no way out of. Then the farmer suggested we try going for a walk a couple of times a week. Now I am nearly allergic to all forms of exercise except anything thats horse related.  We rooted out runners and tracksuits and off we set. The 1st evening was a rough experience I wouldnt get much air in when I exercise. I came home light headed wheezing and sweating buckets but it was the first night in months I slept all… No Way Out, I Coming Home, Buckets, First Night, Farmer, Runners, Routine, Horse, Exercise

Today has been productive and its only 2pm ! . So far today I have gotten to do two things I love. I got to ride my old mare and I wrote a quick blog post just to check in and let everyone know what I have been up to.

Sometimes online you just come across a person who just inspires you. Their photography is beautiful natural and real which can be so hard to find.  So when this amazing lady @me_and_orla wrote a book full of beautiful wisdom I couldnt but pre order it months ago. It arrived today and all I want to do now is sit and read it all. I want to cancel the rest of today even my art class and soak this all in.

All my plans for a blog post a week and three Instagram posts a week hasn't really fallen into place yet for me this year so far. I have a title and photo ready for a blog post but that's as far as I got. No words written because life took over which I suppose is good.  My art classes started back this week and we also had our 1st full week as new dairy farmers. All these took some of my spare time. But we did make time to go walking with friends which was where I took today's #nofilter… Dairy Farmers, Make Time, To Go, My Arts, Walking, Country Roads, How To Plan, Friends, Fall

I didn't want to do yesterday I wanted to crawl back to my bed. I wanted to stay there in the warmth with a book and an endless supply of warm tea. Who was going to have time to bring me tea I am not sure. As this was never going to be an option I had to find comfort another way. That was to make numerous cups of tea/coffee and find a warm cosy jumper to wear. It did help a little but still it wasn't the same as a day away from life.

All the plans for the last four days totally went out the window on me. Life completely got in the way. No blog post written for Friday because all our cows moved to their new sheds. Friday was spent playing catch up for Thursday. Yesterday then was lesson day and the littlest farmer started to feel unwell half way through the day.  He started at lunch complaining of a sore tummy then his nose started to run and his throat was sore.

Today the stress of the last year flowed away just like this little waterfall. We have been working so hard on changes on our farm that it seemed the end was never going to be reached.  Then just like that today the cows moved to their new home and all the stress just lifted. So expect a few more cute cow and calf photos over the coming months. . . . . . . . . #embracingseasons #savouringseasons #gloomandglow #lovelifeoutside #countrylife #farmlife #ofquietmoments #littlestoriesofmylife… Country Life, Country Roads, Cute Cows, Farm Life, Flow, Waterfall, Stress, Change, Photos
