At bedtime, Summer likes to talk.  Loves to talk.  She knows it will keep her awake infinitely, so, in an out-loud fashion, she mulls over her day, makes plans, creates stories, dreams up scenarios, and sometimes just talks nonsense.  But tonight, it was farm plans.

Summer:  I want to raise a pig and eat it.  Just raise it up and eat it.  I want a male and a female, so they can have babies.  Then we can eat the babies.

So real.  Yep, that’s how you get food.  And I couldn’t be more proud that she knows that.

    How lovely that you can look past the struggle to complete your home and forsee the pleasure of the future while still enjoying the process. I’m so proud of you.

      It’s a daily struggle, believe me! We constantly have to decide: which important thing doesn’t get done today. Dishes? A normal bedtime? Work at the new house?

      If I didn’t keep the future in mind, I’d never be able to enjoy the moment!
