Organized Chaos

I love my old vintage truck and it looks and fits perfectly on my new farmette

In the early darkness this morning (think 3:08am) the thought came to me, that I live my life as “organized chaos”.   Just enough organization that life flows well, with just enough crazy that it keeps it interesting.  And I hadn’t really thought of my life in those terms, but it fits.  And those 2 words, as opposite as they are, basically describe me.  Maybe it resonates some with you too.  What two words describe you?  I’d love to know and I hope you will take a moment and think about it, and then share it with me.

Looking back from December, 2016 to December, 2017, this has been a year of many changes. Major changes,  such as packing up my entire farmstead in four weeks and re-establishing it in another town 14 miles away.  In the process, there were relationship changes too, where it went from leaving a-not -so-great love relationship and  then a few months later meeting someone that is this girl’s “rock”.  His name is Rod and he is an unexpected blessing that that just sort of appeared in my life one day.   A friend recently told me that the other person was put in my life to help close the doors to my old life and that it helped pave the way for where I needed to be, today.  And it’s true.  

So in a few hours, Rod will drive the 90 miles to see me, and he is bringing me a Christmas tree that he cut down from his property.  He says he found the perfect tree.  So when I get home from work, I’ll put on some great Christmas music, pour a glass of wine, put dinner in the oven and we’ll decorate the tree. Sounds like a pretty good way to end the week if you ask this girl.

And the other thing that I plan to do this week-end is write a letter to myself of what I hope and want for the upcoming year. I’ll ask Rod to do it too, then we’ll read it next New Year’s Eve.  I think that is a great plan. Sometimes you can plan good things, other times the good things happen at the right moment.

As always, thank you for stopping by. And if you feel like sharing what your “2 words” are that describe you, let me know. I would love to hear from you.  I’m a click away at .

All my best, Gayle
