Goats In the Mist

With apologies to Dian Fossey and Sigourney Weaver, this is the Farview version of "Gorillas In the Mist."  It was taken the day the fog rolled in, to the point where Bessie Anne had to abandon her post in the field by the barn and move up so she could keep an eye on her charges.  (She is that little brown lump on the right.)  I just love this photo.  The fog...not so much.

That peek of sunshine yesterday morning was the last seen all day.  By the time I finished the last milker, it was pouring rain and the drizzle just hung on.  Well, what did I expect?  It's winter.  Grey days are enervating and I have no incentive to do much of anything.  Let the sun come out and, after a stint on the deck bench with a book, I'm ready to bustle around and get caught up on chores.  I don't want to jinx anything, but it's pretty bright out this morning.

I have never put it into words for myself, but you are RIGHT...for ME, gray days certainly are enervating. I am a sunshine girl, and Ohio was NOT a good fit for me, a Southern California native. When it was sunny with blue skies and white clouds and no humidity in the Buckeye State, I would almost shake my friends and say to them, "This is a CALIFORNIA day!!" My older son, on the other hand, used to love it when we were driving to school in a gray mist. I could NEVER understand his opinion. Did you know that Colorado Springs (maybe all of Colorado, I don't know) is supposed to have 360 days of sunshine a year? Not sure I quite believe that, but it HAS been sunny most of the time I have visited. Here's hoping you have a CALIFORNIA day today - the kind with sunshine!
