I AM IN A FOG AGAIN

Some might say I always walk around in a fog during this time of year - You are so right on that point but this morning Mother Nature is giving it to the whole farm. As I went to check on everyone this morning you could hardly see two feet ahead of yourself. As I walked I thought of all my favorite horror movies - "The Fog", "Storm of the Century", and the "The Mist" - Oh SO Many More! In those movies something mind blowing and body chewing leaps out of the fog and kills you in some gut spilling way!!! I admit it I LOVE those types of movies. As I walked the paths of my farm the air hung heavy and still - not a sound. My animals lay low in this weather because they too know that predators hunt in this and that keeping still is your best defense.

Today is one of those days that for whatever reason I feel energized - it might be the lack of sleep (the mind does strange things when not given rest), the bite in the air which makes this old gal pick up her heels and move quicker, or could it be that my brain runs wild with all the tales of things that go "Bump in the Fog."

As I sit eating my breakfast with a baby goat in my lap (O.K. really how many folks start their morning that way?) and watching "Terminator Salvation " I can not help but wonder what waits for me in that mist???

None of us know what might leap out at us and change our lives for the worst. I find watching the News or most of the TV programs much more terrifying then any horror movie. We have monsters walking amongst us doing unspeakable things yet we do nothing to stop them. No strand of garlic or holly water will stop them. We glorify the social misfits and watch on every station a man's spiral down into insanity and twitter about it by the millions. We have become robot's without a heart or zombies without a soul. "There is a storm coming" - as Connor states in the movie. A real snow storm is rolling in at the farm but also a storm of change. We have to clear the fog that surrounds our minds and hearts and find the clear path - focus on the real things that are out there...

Enough of that - I am talking in movie quotes - that can't be good!!!
Better go hang the garlic, fill up bottles with holly water and get back to work...

So very true, and so very sad. I can't stand that TV anymore. More people care about a singing contest than the state of the nation. I am assuming by your breakfast companion that the baby is doing OK. Rattle clear up?

Jane I am with you on this!! Thanks for asking - her rattle is better but she slipped the other day and so she is struggling with her leg a bit but I am still requiring her to walk so it will not stiffen or lose circulation. It is always something...
