It’s almost 6 a.m. on this Saturday morning. I’ve got a good cup of coffee that I can grab from time to time. A fan is oscillating lazily nearby creating some white noise while also stirring the air.
I only have about a half an hour to write this post and get it ready to publish. The last half of the task will take about seven minutes, so really I’m down to about nineteen minutes. I guess I should get to writing instead of pontificating on things around the situation.
A few weeks ago I wrote about being honest even if not everything has been figured out completely. This morning I thought I’d do a little bit of that. 🙂
To be honest its been a bit of a rough week. Things at work got frustrating. Things at the farm have been crazy busy. A NodleStudios client needed something done, I really didn’t have time to squeeze it in, but I was able to anyway.
And now its Saturday and I’m tired, but it’s going to be at least a busy morning here at the Farm. The pick your own strawberry patch is full of berries which means the snack shack needs to be running, that’s part of my domain I guess. The forecast is calling for rain around noon. Earlier they were saying it was going to be earlier than that, I had already started to plan what I’d do with a rare “free Saturday.” I guess that wont be the case after all. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad any time we can have people picking and paying for strawberries. With strawberries being a super perishable crop they need to be picked as soon as they are ripe, ripe berries that don’t get picked go bad, and no one wants that.
I did make the executive decision to not post a video this week. Although I recorded a “one take wonder” after watching it back it was barely coherent, I rambled a bunch. I also recorded it several days ago and didn’t get to edit it till a few days later, so it was also out of line with the day I specified as I was talking. I know I could just post it, but it doesn’t feel right, so I won’t.
Sometimes I wonder if something is wrong with me. Perhaps I get tired sooner than “normal” people. Or maybe I just have a lazy bone that is overly large. I do try to get a lot of work done, although I’m fully aware that if I could focus more from time to time I could probably accomplish more. What I don’t understand is that my mom and dad went to bed way later than I did last night, they’ve been out working for a while now already. I’m still trying to get my senses around me and fully wake up. My grandfather moved to this area in the 50’s. He started a dairy not too long after getting here. For a while there he was milking cows, building a house for his family, and working a “real job.”
I don’t know how people work three jobs at once. I know people do it, but I’m not sure that I actually could. I guess I sort of am working multiple jobs, but it doesn’t seem like as much, perhaps because I’m in the middle of it and it just seems like what “needs to happen.”
All right, that’s it for this week. I’m going to publish this real quick and head out to see if I can get the ice cream maker working in the snack shack.
