The 2 Things Challenge this week was Peaceful/Patterns. For someone who has spent most of his life in or near fairly large cities, the pastoral setting of the farm can seem like a very peaceful, simple way of life, and even influences where I live today. We had a visit of a few days last weekend to my wife's family on the farm in Pennsylvania.
Below are a few patterns from our brief visit, some peaceful, and one chaotic.
By the way, those who live this supposedly peaceful, simple life on a day to day basis might argue that it is itself full of just as much stress and turmoil as the big city life, just different. More on that in the next few days.
