I poked my head in to say hello to the pig living there but she was sleeping. She opened an eye and gave me a few warning grunts so I left her be.
I have to say piggies are adorable but pigs are not. I’m not sure when they lose their adorableness to me but it’s sometime in adolescence around the time they become adults.
Not too many sunflowers and bees around anymore. While we haven’t had a frost yet, it’s coming really, really soon. The nights are very cool, almost cold and the days aren’t warm either. This time of year there are lots of clouds so Sun’s warmth doesn’t come though much.
Greens don’t seem to mind the chilly weather though!
I planted cabbage last year and while it did fine I had a spider problem so I didn’t plant any this year. Suggestions?
The pictures I uploaded here show only a fraction of D Acres. If you get the chance to visit, I insist you do!
As you know, I was feeling pretty down last week. Going to D Acres really snapped me out of it. Reiki opened me up a bit (though my heart chakra needs some work) and communicating with people whom I don’t have to hide myself around really settled some of the loneliness and isolation I’ve been feeling. Like I said in this post I tend to isolate myself thinking it’s the cure all.
D Acres is now having a circle dance on Saturday nights and I think I’m going to start attending though, unfortunately, I can’t attend until November. The night it’s planned for October I have a commitment already. You see, Saturdays have turned into one of the worst days for me. Wolf works his second job on Saturdays and is gone from 7a to 9p. The silence in the house is deafening. I’ve realized no one is going to call on Saturdays and see if I’m around so I just sit here and stare at the walls all day. At least when Wolf is at his full-time job I can call and talk to him for a few minutes but I can’t call when he’s at his second job. The day just drags on and on and as the darkness comes (earlier and earlier) my loneliness awakens and is fed by the silence and isolation. He shouldn’t quit the job for any reason because he need the experience it provides (though the money is nice, it’s not a lot by any means) so I don’t want him to read this and think “I should quit” — the loneliness is my problem I have to solve. The lesson to be learned is this: watch what you wish for. When I was a kid and in my teens and early 20s, I used to wish all the time people would “just leave me alone.” The universe answered my prayers because now I’m left alone all the time. And while I don’t mind being alone I don’t like it all the time.
I’ve been looking for things to occupy my time involving people but find the whole tight budget thing to be a major obstacle. We’re so strapped for cash I can’t be gallivanting all over Mother Earth spending money on gas and other stuff so I’m at a loss as to what to do. D Acres is an hour away so going there all the time isn’t the answer.
