When I checked the local weather forecast for long term, indeed, this is verified. There is no snow forecast until December with above zero day time temperatures until then as well, and the night temperatures not below minus ten. How is it the animals know these things? How can we become more connected to our planet so we can be aware as well?
Long ago, when people lived closer to the Earth, slept on the ground without the barrier of concrete blocking the magnetic pulse of our mother planet, they were much more in tune with her than we are today. I am fortunate that I have a dirt basement in my house with only a wooden floor between me and the ground. I am not aware that I feel the pulse of the Earth here, but when I moved to the bed and breakfast house, I certainly felt different and could not live in that house. Maybe the connectedness is something I am simply not aware of, but exists.
Certainly these mother ducks know the fall will be long and warm. I am not sure what to do with them all though. I have them advertised for sale, though no one wants young ducks to winter over. This is the time when baby animals can be had for next to nothing. My friend attended a local sale today and was able to purchase pot belly piglets for only ten dollars each, and they are 6 months old, which is a good time to butcher them. I have 20 some piglets with more on the way and really have no hope of selling them, so had better get a freezer emptied for the months coming up.
The fall is a beautiful time in our four season area. It is a time of release, letting go, looking forward to more indoor time for hobbies, sitting by the wood stove and relaxing and contemplating life. I love my life here on the farm. I just wish you could be as content with your lives. I am very blessed and now, I am blessed by a bunch of baby Muscovy ducklings too! Happy Fall!
