Touching Base

It has been a bumpy ride here - Mother Nature has keep all of us guessing and running on empty.  We go from high 60's to blizzards within a day.  Over and Over to were the animals have been giving me very nasty looks as if I had some control over this mess.

It also seems as if everyone I know is experiencing such drama, heartache and pain that it is hard at times to breath...  Sitting in peace has escaped me and I know I am not alone.  Life is CHANGE and we know this but why does it seem to derail us?? 

I have been busy making incredible fiber batts that all found loving, talented homes and I have been thrilled about that - hoping my shoulder will cooperate.  I have also found my days and nights getting confused but learning to roll with that as well.  Who says you can not rake out a barn at 3 am???  I found it much more enjoyable because I had the company of a sweet bat who swept the skies while I enjoyed the still of the night.  I even had two owls sit on the gate to the barn and tell me of their adventures and plans.  I  had to giggle because the mink family came out to play and would run around my feet with no fear what so ever.  Could not find more joy and peace at such an odd time - I guess I would be a great late shift worker.  Now if I could do more then two hours of sleep a day but I will take what I can get.

So that is what I have been up to AND YOU??  Love to hear what is going on in your world - hope you might share.  Keeps me grounded and also knowing that someone is reading and sharing.  Hugs to all...

I'm sorry and glad to know someone else is going through stuff too. It does seem that when it rains it pours.

My thoughts exactly - when it rains, it pours! Hoping you and your loved ones come out stronger on the other end and find peace again.

We are in fowl heaven over here! Lots of new feathered friends - hens, turkeys, ducks...all growing as fast as my little girl. Glad to see the sun after another foot of snow last week, and still getting some nice moisture tonight with a thunderstorm. So grateful for all the time I get to spend outside these days - watching the animals enjoy the fresh grass and planting out my garden a little at a time.

I know we just need to breath but sometimes easier said then done.

I know the weather has not been working with us but it will always keep us on our toes. Tell Mom that if only I would not be working all shifts I might not mind. Your right - always been one to be up at 2 am doing something - even as a little girl... Give a hug to Mom from me Katy
