Missing Summer Already

2019 Ninilchik Farmers Market

Is anyone else missing summer already or is it just me? As the days have gotten significantly shorter, so has my energy levels. We seemed to have done so much in the summer, and if the grass is greener on the other side, we seemed to have accomplish everything as well (although, if I think for half a moment longer, I remember so many conversations Bob and I had about how to make more time in our days).
Every month I get pictures from my phone printed off into a physical copy. This last week I got this picture, which has no doubt sparked my longing for summer- for the sun on my skin, the dirt under my nails, the time Bob and I spent working hard and sweating together, and the food we were able to nourish ourselves with.
Now that the season has changed we are having to adjust, adapt, find new ways to nourish ourselves. We sleep in, in our new luxurious bed, we read books and go for night walks, and we still make food. I am dedicated to bake more, bringing a little more warmth and coziness into our home this winter. I’m now feeding not just myself but this family we have created.

I may be missing summer but I sure am enjoying the change of season and the constant love and support from my husband.

We are modern homesteaders who live off-the-land and off-grid on the Kenai Peninsula. When we're not working on our land we are making and processing food, beading jewelry, and writing books.
