Farmgirl Business

margarita

Now, I don’t mean business as in financial business.  Though every good farmgirl should know how to create and run a business as well as keep a household running for under $25K a year.  I am meaning personal business.  I know we farmgirls are busy gardening, canning, working, keeping a family together, cleaning the house, taking care of animals, taking care of everyone else, and getting hot food on the table every day, but Honey, there comes a time when we farmgirls need a break.  At the point that one finds themself without a shower for a week, ready to throw hubby out, close to strangling one or two animals, whilst planning one’s runaway to California to a.) Join the circus or b.) Get a job in a vineyard, one may consider taking a few moments of rest and recuperation and pulling oneself together.  For nervous breakdowns in farmgirls are neither attractive nor practical.

Now, go get that cocktail and your farm book…or trashy romance…and relax a bit.

      1. Is it me or is cheesemaking really involved? I am trying to get past beginner cheeses like chevre. I’m a bit intimidated, but got lots of milk so I keep trying. 🙂 good luck!

  1. I’m beginning to see a trend in your blog posts this week. Wine one day and a margarita another day 🙂

    We all need to take a break from time-to-time. Unfortunately, I am terrible about taking a break and instead try to do it all. Giving ourselves a regular break helps us refuel so we are better able to get our work done.

    At the pace I’m going these days, I would say I’m definitely due for a refueling break.
