9.11.10 we are being evicted
I spent the morning working on my memoirs. It seems so strange to be finally writing them down. I've planned to write them most of my life and yet, I think a part of me never thought I would be able to.
It's cool here, only 68, but muggy. The moisture seems to hang in the air, suspended in time, falling in such slow motion as to take all day to finally touch the ground. I like these days but I like most days so ...
Nik found the spider web above the holding pen yesterday morning. Huge and perfect, adorned with pearls of dew. It was there still this morning, like a welcome sign above the gate :)
We're just back in from milking and morning chores. Thistle is doing wonderfully and gets better at each milking. She's also giving a bit more milk now that's she's getting used to the schedule. 2 1/2 cups today, that's a little over a gallon a week. I still need about twice that for all the baking and stuff but it's a very good start and keeps us from having to buy milk. Still no eggs tho, they haven't even bothered the hay in the nests.
Early this morning I had a very rare occurrence. I had a nightmare, sort of.
I was dreaming something that i didn't like and wasn't able to turn it like I usually can, so i woke myself up to end the dream. As I was drifting back to sleep I had a feeling that someone else was there. I brushed it away and continued to fall asleep. Suddenly there was someone standing beside my bed wearing horrific reddish black armor. I don't know why it seemed so horrible but it did. The person started to reach toward me and I struggled with my myself to stop it and change the dream. But I couldn't so i woke myself up again. I was so tired and just wanted to fall back to sleep so I began to drift but everytime i would start to drift the person in the armor would reappear and reach for me. finally I had to wake myself and sit up in bed for a few minutes. It felt wrong and the feeling lingered long after I was up. Eventually I went back to bed and was afraid the being would return, but it didn't and I slept well until I woke naturally just before 5:00am.
For now I'm off to get some things done
Just as I was getting ready to post this a sheriff pulled into our drive. He was a very nice man here to deliver eviction papers. I guess we lose our home as well. My hands are shaking and I cannot think. The papers say that I was asked to move over a month ago but refused. But this is the first I've heard anything about it. I am suddenly very tired and lost.
