Closing the Gate

     This week has been so full of activity and anxiety. Work and worry mixed with wonder and excitement, but today it is time to close the gate and regroup. Time is needed to rest, to tend my home, and work my gardens. There is cheese to make and yogurt to culture; laundry to wash and a quilt that need completing.Today will be a day for soup on the stove and coffee in hand- maybe a batch of cookies will find their way to the oven.
       While time with the students is a gift I cherish, time at home is a blessing. Today, the gate is closed, the herd is grazing, and I am nestling in for a weekend of family and home.
