Becoming Kindred Blog

After a long while

I received a comment a few weeks ago from a lovely reader asking if I would start updating my blog again. Oddly enough, I've been feeling the blogging bug again although it feels as if I've almost forgotten how. My hiatus wasn't actually a planned event; it just sort of, happened.

Some things fit well for a season and then they just don't. I'm not sure if updating this little space of the internet still fits me but I thought I'd try again.

Meanwhile life has been full to overflowing. Most days I don't keep up but that's a lament for another time. You can see one of my big summer projects here, https://www.airbnb.ca/rooms/6832583?s=SijM. We rather do everything in fits and spurts so informally opening our little B&B was no exception. A call one night in June from someone wanting to rent the next night gave us the adrenaline rush that we needed to get the space ready and after that the bookings just kept coming. We've enjoyed a variety of folks from various parts of the world and I hope they've enjoyed a place of rest even amidst our sometimes crazy life.

We've seen some additions to our little farm, a whole lot of weeds have grown, we tried to naturalize our front lawn to the amusement of our neighbors, and we began painting the outside of this beautiful, rambling monstrosity that we call home. It guzzles gallons of paint insatiably.

And now Fall is almost upon us. With it comes a sense of rhythm and focus that all but disappeared over the spring and summer months. I've grand aspirations of a more scheduled and disciplined life. We'll see how that pans out, hmm?
