POST 199 (DAY 209, Saturday, 2021.3.6)
[Midday Entry]

.. This morning was a bit of a blur.. I woke up at 6am, which is nearly an hour past my rise and shine time.. I got my normal routine in but it also felt somewhat missed.. the pace of the morning felt a bit rushed.. then I realized maybe that’s what happens when I’m not alone.. there was someone else awake in the house as I was warming up my day.. still visited the bm fairy, ran the RMH, made and ate breakfast, brushed my teeth, but didn’t get my reading or BRK post in.. it just felt rushed.. I truly prefer to have the tone of the day set by a fantastic execution of my morning routine.. I get distracted.. so then I am reminded again, why I arise and shine around 5:00am..
.. to those (including myself) who may immediately think in exclamation, that this is way too early! .. I say “hey, I think even 9am is way too early.. or 11am.. or any AM..! .. id rather sleep all day and wake up in time to shower before supper..” .. and I ask, “what would be an appropriate time for arising, if you know you want to shine..?” .. shine on..

..enjoy the pics~!!!

POST 200 (DAY 210, Sunday, 2021.3.7)
[Morning Entry]

.. welp.. here we are—post 200, babyyyyy~!!!
.. hair is cut.. check out the new do!.. I prefer short hair.. because it’s just simpler than long hair.. though quite frankly, I love the feel of my long hair brushed between my fingers.. so I left a tail, which represents the time I’ve been at WL so far.. 210 days..
.. I’ve learned a lot about my self and how I fit, in community and permaculture lifestyle.. the struggle of facing my demons one day at a time, with the support of this beautiful company and its natures.. fear was felt, breaths were taken, and breakthroughs shared.. what a fantastical journey thus far.. to think it’s only been 7 months and yet the density of experiences outweighs the blip of my last worky-job of 11 months.. is unbelievable.. how does such a place exist in the middle of rural Montana?.. perhaps it’s magic.. if one believes in such things..!

..enjoy the pics~!!!

POST 202 (DAY 212, Tuesday, 2021.3.9)
[Morning Entry]

.. home.. is safe and fun..
THE WORK: yesterday, Kyle and I installed the box truck shelving frame.. and then installed the library seed shelf extender boards.. right as it was time to call it a day!.. we aimed for two targets and marked both with expedient acumen..! Basically it felt really good to get those parts done.. what’s left for both shelves are the decking boards.. what a great partner to work with—this boot, Kyle!

Enjoy the pics~!!!
