Oh my the seasons are changing rather rabidly here, even in the Valley of Four Winds. There is a certain chill in the air first thing in the morning that even has the smell of freshly fallen snow – the wind comes down off the mountains, I’m sure. One thing that I am not enjoying at this time of year is all of the rain, it seems like it doesn’t want to stop, however, that doesn’t mean that we get a day off from harvesting the crops and fighting off the vermin.
Kal has been good on his word of not going to hang out with his old friends in Stormwind and I am happy about that because I think that he was starting to drink way too much and forgetting what his priorities actually were here at the farm and yes, even forgetting that we have an informal commitment to one another. I know that he is still toying with the idea of going back to Darnassus and taking our pledge at the Moonwell and I know that it is a big thing for the two of us. I don’t think that I need it that badly, however, it’s something that we want to do in the near future. Maybe over Winter Veil we can do that?
We’ve spent a good deal of time talking about his family and how he was raised. It sounds as if he has had his own life shaken up a few times with the relationship that his Father and Mother have had over the years, however, Amyn seems to be the one that is the most stable of the two. What can I say, his Father is very much the Sindorei in all facets of his life it seems and Amyn must have the patience of a priestess to have been able to handle all of the changes that she has gone through with her Sindorei.
Kal definitely has a lot of his Father’s traits sometimes and that is going to be the one thing that will cause us trouble if we both aren’t aware of it. His fixation on his appearance is definitely a Sindorei thing and I will have to admit that I do take a lot of pride in being seen with him when he is all dressed up in his best. He’s a handsome man and very masculine – I can really see why some of the girls at the camp were throwing themselves at him all of the time, however, I was the lucky one that captured his heart it seems.
I know that I was laughing at him a couple of days ago when he asked when I wanted to go back to the Jade Temple so that we could do some washing and some fishing. Honestly, I could do the washing here at the farm just as easily, although I would miss those little outings of ours. Oh, we still make a day of it and sit there with our packed lunch and some wine and fish. It’s not exactly what some of the girls would all a romantic moment, however, it’s romantic for us.
Oh, I have been watching Dawnglory and his little family at his farm over the fence. Their little girl is really going to be quite the handful when she starts actually walking more. I know that she definitely looks like her Father and I think that she is going to be as beautiful as her red-haired Mother. I had to come in the house to hide my laughter because the little girl definitely has quite the vocabulary and her one word that anyone can understand regardless of faction is “No” – she was smacking her own little chubby hands every time she was reaching out to grab one of the plants that her Mother was weeding. Nothing like having a child that can do self-discipline.
It is definitely times like those, watching the family next door, that I wish that Kal and I had a child of our own. I know that I have broached the subject with Kal a few times and he always wrinkles his nose up and looks at me like I have said a terrible thing. I think we would make great parents and our children would be beautiful. He keeps telling me that he would hate to bring a child into this world right now because there is so much going on that he doesn’t feel comfortable subjecting another living being of his own blood into the mess. He always laughs and tells me that we need to get used to the two of us being together first before we introduce someone else into the situation. Frankly, I think he’s just stalling and unbeknownst to him, I’ve stopped taking my tea a couple of weeks ago, so, we may already have a baby in the works, only Elune knows. I know that that is a sneaky thing to do to a fellow, however, if it does come to pass, I am in hopes that he will be happy about it.
I know that we are both concerned that there might be more troubles for us in the near future too. With all of the rumors floating around Pandaria and with some of the things that we have heard in Stormwind when we last went there, we both may be jumping back in with our Sentinels and setting off for a new adventure. I know that we both would like to have more of a respite than what we have had and some time to enjoy the life that we have carefully crafted here in Pandaria. Our farm is wonderful and I know that Kal takes great pride in how it has turned out. If we are forced back into our duty again, we will be searching for someone to manage the place for us because we aren’t going to give it up and go off only to come back to the “nothing” that might be left behind if we surrendered the farm.
I guess that I am going to keep an ear out to see if there is anymore gossip about these new problems that might be facing Azeroth. Right now, all we can do is to live one day at a time and hope that this blows over and doesn’t yank us away from the things and people we love.
Oh, I don’t like the look on Kal’s face right now, he just came in from getting the mail and he’s holding two envelopes that look kind of official. Well, I suppose that I should cut this short and see what has happened now. By Elune, that man does not look like he’s all that happy.
