I am preoccupied as of late. I am concerned about my fellow countrymen and the things I have been reading. I really want to tell every one to just stop talking for a moment.

I have a lot of work to do here, and at the farm. Those are the thoughts that should be taking up my time. I am going to have to force myself to do that. I had to withdraw from my friends on facebook, because I knew that if I said anything about the horrible remarks made about (in general) my side of the opinion, I would upset a lot of people. It wasn't so much them as it was the company they keep.

I have been watching the chicks, and enjoy them. The way the little ones punk up to one another cracks me up. It reminds me of Junior high boys. This is what I like. I am not a people person, I have very few friends. But I have always been that way. I don't shun away from people I am just too honest for them, and I know it. But I cherish honesty and do not feel the need to change it.

Turkey vomit is gross. Why on earth must they vomit like that! I know it is a self defense thing and I would not want to eat something that vomits on me. I still might want to kill it out of the shear grossness of it however. Yes, I am changing the subject, that way I don't start ranting.

The turkeys are getting big, soon they can go outside. I am worried though, the rainy season is coming, and with flooding and wetness, turkeys don't like to survive. We are reconstructing he turkey hutches, lifting the little ones off the ground until they are larger. Hopefully this will keep them all alive until butchering time.

One of my husband's clients makes his own soap and beer and some other things. He is retired Navy, a preacher and a biker. Husband said he will ask him if he would teach me how to make soap. I plan on offering him goats milk in exchange. I really would like to actually learn something from another person rather than reading it. I am self taught in too many things, and just once I would love to be a real student. He is on a mission right now, so not sure when I will be able to talk to him.

Now that I think about it, I have an outlet for my pent up temper. I have a couple of blogs that few people read. I can go there and spew my frustration. Maybe.

Skippymom, is all this coherent enough for you. ~wink~

This is how I think, not so much how I write. I can concentrate on one subject at a time. When I feel the need to. But my thought process can be sporadic. I will finish sentences of conversation I had 3 weeks before. Only because I thought of it suddenly. Of course the person I had talked to before, then later has no idea what I am talking about.

I keep my friends on their toes to say the least.

So tomorrow I will push the thought process aside, and go back to my homesteading ways. For today, I just felt the need to ramble. And I appreciate you putting up with it.

I love your ramblings - glad to read someone who operates in a similar fashion.
Current affairs frustrate me so intensely that, like you, I must withdraw. My friend circle is very small; at work it is one person. She has a clue and gets it. *shrugs* The world is not yet ready for people like us - that, though, is changing.

Sometimes it just becomes so much noise...blah, blah, blah, yammer, blah...and I can't make it out any more. So I sew. And worry about bills and whether I'm home-schooling the Evil Genius well enough, and things that I can do something about here and now, and sort of let the world slide by on its own.

I'm thinking of taking up raising chickens...I used to have some when I was younger, had a rooster I could carry around and pet like a cat, loved the fresh eggs. I won't butcher my own any more, though...I'm done with that, someone else has to do it.

Good luck with the turkeys and learning how to make soap.

Shade and Sweetwater,

ramble on my dear...and on that goat soap...don't be giving away too much of that precious goat milk. IT makes THE BEST goat soap ever and you will be hoarding all goat milk you have. Also..If I can make it...ANYONE can! :)

Hi Phelan,

Sometimes we all a need a moment to just stop and take a breather from everyday life.

Like you, my circle of friends is small. I am not anti-social, just terribly shy and honesty ranks pretty high on my list too. Some people just don't like to hear the truth. My circle of friends did not start growing until I found the blogosphere and for that I am thankful. :)

Ok, turkeys vomit? this I did not know. I learn something new every day. LOL!

I'm glad you have the chicks to keep your mind on something cute and pleasant. I miss having chickens my Dad had some when I was growing up. I've already asked, Catman if we can have some whenever we get out of CA. All he said was "how many do you want?" So yippee. He probably knew I'd bug him endlessly until he said yes anyway, so why not just ask how many. LOL! I've already got my breeds picked out too. :)

I'll stop my rambling now. I don't know what it is sometimes I just go on and on, I think it may be hormonal, sounds like a good excuse anyway. ;)
