Pigs. Sleep.

This morning I awoke to strong LOUD thunderstorms, pouring rain and strobe lightening that flashes on and on and a severe weather warning beeping on the phone.  I merely note the severe weather warnings. They send them out for the most ordinary of weathers.  It’s a thunderstorm. Not an extraordinary  event.  If I did not have …

More Piggy Moves

Yesterday was another day of pig wrangling. I needed to go to one of the big farm stores to buy that solar panel but the little pigs were still in disarray so I could not leave the property except for one fast local run for feed. Somehow the little pigs had pushed through one of the …

Moldy Oldies

Frozen. All day yesterday my world sat like a large silent hesitant animal, softly freezing into place. Shiny and undecided. Waiting. Everything was crunchy with ice. I am leaving these gloves on the clothesline for the whole winter. I am not sure what the experiment is but we can watch them you and I. There was no …

In-side the cloud

Yesterday the warmth brought a heavy mist and I worked within the cottony echoey warmth of a wet cloud all day. The pigs loved the misty warm weather – they were outside in their field almost all day. The view from the clothes line – everything is gone. This is the view to the North. …

Dear Old Friend,

  8.53 pm. Tuesday night (NOT Wednesday night!  hard to remember what day it is sometimes!) Dear old Friend, I am laughing at myself! Fifteen minutes ago I was reading your email  – my brain turned off – La La La  I was humming, sleepy,  sitting in my chair, cup of tea, dishes draining from dinner and writing …

Anti-Climax

By afternoon the heavy rain turned to snow, coming down heavily. So I threw on my clown suit and big jacket and and hattie and trotted about getting everyone fed early in case we got snowed in.  I put everyone to bed and shut all the big doors in preparation for the Blowing Snow.  I Drove at speed …
