November Hill farm journal, 72

Things are blooming madly here but in a bizarre turn of weather we’re having highs today in the 30s  along with cold rain and even light snow in some parts of North Carolina. The horses had to come in earlier, but after naps evidenced by shavings all over their backs, Keil and Cody have come back out to snack on dogwood blossoms. I have not seen them do this before so I guess they’re doing their own bizarre thing to match the weather!

I’m having one of those weeks where my head feels like it’s about to explode with the desperate need to do 1001 home, farm, and barn projects. I have my actual plan written down and it is modest and what we need to do next. But instead of focusing on that, I’m on Pinterest and various websites pricing new materials, searching for info, and generally driving myself half mad because truly, I have about 5 years worth of work in my brain this week. 

It’s cold and rainy, I have a cold, and there are literally hundreds of books I want to read sitting in the house in stacks and lined up on my Kindle, but I am too wired to sit down and relax with one of them. Spring fever? A mild mania? I’m not sure, but I hope it passes quickly. 

By the weekend we will have temps in the 80s and maybe that will slow my brain.

I hope you feel better and can relax soon. I know how you feel because I am the exact same way. I can't even sleep at night sometimes because I can't shut off my brain with thoughts and projects. Things will get done eventually and then you'll be able to sit back and enjoy the projects that are finished.

A, it’s crazy when you (meaning I) can literally look on paper at things being checked off and see the progress around you of things getting done - but all it does is put your brain into total overdrive manufacturing a hundred MORE things to do! Thankfully my son and daughter-in-law are here right now so I’m happy to stop churning with potential projects and relax with them. Whew! Let’s both take some deep breaths and relax! :)
