Thank you! Thank you to each and every one of you! This year has been an amazing ride filled with highs, lows, successes, learning lessons – also known as failures we gained experience from – new friendships and so much more. There were several times that I was exhausted, burned out, frustrated, and ultimately pondered just letting it all go.
Quitting isn’t something I am accustomed too though, I probably just don’t have the sense for it to be honest. So quitting, mid-season, just wasn’t in the cards for me. I kept my eyes on the prize, the end of November, when I could again sleep in, visit with friends, enjoy some personal time, and lick my wounds from this whirlwind of a season.
In a week or two, I’ll have forgotten all my frustrations and will begin building my purchase lists of supplies needed coming for the upcoming year. I’ll work on projects around the house trying to get caught up on needed repairs and begin setting up the new year. I’ll test grow some new products for the new season, and decide which ones to retire from my seed library.
It’s in this time of year, that I get to reflect on all the experiences I’ve had, the people I’ve met, things I’ve learned – it’s the time of year I’ve become grateful for. Thankful for not only the break, but thankful for the time to reflect on it all. Thankful to be able to just breathe a little.
