Oh, it is so nice hearing laughter in our house at the farm and for that laughter to continue on when we go back to the Bluff. It is so nice having the family almost totally together in Pandaria, however, Tahfal is the laggard in getting his studies done so that he can come with us to Halfhill. I think that he will start hurrying things up in the near future because of the fact that he doesn’t like eating his own cooking.
Having Nahai and Mother with us in Halfhill is delightful, we’re always talking about home and laughing about the things that we did as children. I know that it makes Mom sad sometimes because I think she still misses our Father after so many years, however, she is just enjoying her new life with us now.
Naton and I have decided that the house is a bit crowded at this point, however, it’s well worth it. We’re planning on completing the forge area soon and then we can close in the place underneath the house a bit so that we can have more sleeping room. Of course, Mom and Nahai are already talking about buying the little farm near us, so, we may not have to go to all that trouble. It’s just nice having them here with us and I don’t think that I have heard Naton laugh so much in a very long time. He likes having the family together for the most part.
I understand where Naton is coming from when he tells me that he is living his life through our lives because he can see how we enjoy things and he can derive some pleasure from that. I know that he sometimes wishes that he could have a wife and children of his own, however, with his condition, that would be impossible. I think he would have made a wonderful Father and husband to some lucky Bessie.
I can remember how things were before Mom and Dad went missing and were kidnapped by the Grimtotem and Naton went looking for them. He was one of the most eligible bachelors on the Bluff and the girls would go wild when he was there and attending one of the many events, however, that all changed once he became a Death Knight. The kind hearted Bull is still there, buried underneath that outer shell though – he spends an awful lot of time making things at his forge for people without charging them, only because they need the items and they can’t pay for it right away or something. I know that when we go home to visit, he is swamped by the old ladies with their pots and pans that they want him to repair for them. I’ve watched him talk and play with the little ones that aren’t afraid of him and I know that I can see it in his face, he would love to have a family of his own. Maybe someday he will find someone that will overlook what he is and love him as much as we do.
We’re actually in the Bluff right now and we’re going to take in the Faire. It feels good to be home for a while, however, I will have to say that Nahai was reluctant to come back. After some prodding from Naton and I, we found out why he didn’t want to come back. Poor fellow thought that once he got back to the Bluff that he would be forced to stay and help out. Well, with Mom being in Pandaria, I don’t think he needs to worry about that at all – she needs and wants him to go with her to explore all of Pandaria. I know I laugh when I see those two sillies riding the air waves in tandem and diving down over the valley gathering herbs – it does remind me of old times.
The only thing that bothers me about having Mom in Halfhill is the fact that she is already trying to do some matchmaking for me. I keep telling her that I will find a mate some day and I will produce those grandchildren that she is always prattling about. Right now, I’m just happy enjoying our life in Pandaria and doing the things that I want to do without any worries about home, hearth and children. That day will come soon enough and when the time is right, I am sure that the Earth Mother will let me know. Of course there are several young bulls that in the Valley that spark my interest, however, that’s as far as it goes right now. I know that when I was younger, I would long for a home and family of my own, however, I have that now, minus the mate and children, in Halfhill and I am completely content with that. Some day Mom will realize that I am just who I am and I can’t make things happen just because she wants things that way.
I brought my a gown to wear to the Faire this time so that I don’t have to wear my armor all of the time. I think that there might be fun with the dancing and I’ll let the boys go out on their own and do their thing. I just want to relax, enjoy the Faire. I am sure that Mom will find some of her old cronies to talk with about how grand farming is in Pandaria – most of the old ladies that she knows haven’t gone there yet and I think that they will enjoy hearing about Mom’s daring adventures that she has already had in Pandaria.
I know I giggle when Mom and Nahai come home from some of their herb gathering with tales of what they have seen – it’s nice to see some of the places through their perspective. Mom has definitely decided that the Hozen are not her favorite race so far in Pandaria – she got quite splattered by a few of them when she landed in the wrong place to gather some herbs that had caught her eye.
Oh well, I guess I should stop writing in my journal and start getting ready to attend the Faire, I see Naton and Tahfal kind of dancing around because they have challenged each other with the canon ride again. How they keep doing that every time we go to the Faire is beyond me – silly boys.
