Well, there won’t be much going on with the farm today until this rain goes away or at least isn’t coming down in torrents. I know I haven’t written in my journal for a while because I have been very busy with the farm and just gathering herbs before the seasons truly change.
Naturally it is that time of year when everyone is running around trying to get as much candy as they can and fighting off the Headless Horseman when the opportunity presents itself. This is always a fun time of year for the young ones and even though my children are grown now, they still enjoy running around in costumes and getting in on the fun. Heck, I even go out once in a while to do the same thing although I am not as dedicated to it as some are. It’s fun watching people get all dressed up in costumes and the adults regress back to their childhood.
Goodness! I know that the Earth Mother is replenishing the earth with the rain before the winter months set in, however, I am beginning to wonder if she isn’t trying to do it all in one session. I don’t recall it raining this much in Halfhill for a very long time, now, it just seems like there is a fog moving in with the rain and the temperatures haven’t gotten rather brisk – or it could be that I am getting older and I am feeling the cold.
I think that I am going to leave the farm to the children for a few days and head back to Kalimdor for a visit. It’s been a while since I’ve stayed in Thunder Bluff at our old house there and I kind of miss it. I always love the Fall at the Bluff. So many traditions to be observed and so many things to do that are strictly on the entertainment level for me anyway. I would like to be able to sit in the afternoon sunshine and talk with my old friends like we used too before I moved to Pandaria. Maybe I can even stay long enough to attend some of the Story Circles that are happening in Mulgore. I love to hear the tales and the scary ones are always the best because sometimes the tale bearers get very dramatic with them and make it all that much more enjoyable.
I had such high hopes that my children would find mates this year in Pandaria and it hasn’t happened yet. I wonder why they can’t seem to find someone to settle down with. I would like to have some grandchildren to enjoy in my golden years. I thought that Mahamura had found someone this past Summer, however, she said that she isn’t quite ready to settle down just yet and children are definitely not something that she really seems to be interested in a whole lot.
I suppose the rain isn’t going to go away for a while and I can get some of the housework done while everyone is away for a while. I can also gather up the few things that I want to take with me to Kalimdor and be ready to leave once I tell the children that Mom needs a break from Pandaria.
