I felt like I was walking around in a fog until I had my
BIG cup of joe EARLY this morning and looked outside.  I took 2 of the 7 dogs out for a walk around the pasture (yes, I'm keeping 2 of my friend's whippersnappers for a week).
  We were walking in the clouds - a ground cloud.

You've heard the saying ~ "The fog was so thick you could cut it with a knife". I could barely see the horses out there anywhere,  BUT, they were there. 

I enjoy reading the Farmer's Almanac.  I remember my Dad and my grandpa always talking about it and following the dates to plant, etc.  I believe the 2012 is out on the shelves now.  They have a great web site with just tons of interesting things.  Some folks really follow the moon and zodiac signs for doing many things.  Here's an excerpt from their site about Best Days.
Best Days Explained...According to Farmers' Almanac tradition, when the moon is in the appropriate phase and place in the zodiac, it's widely believed that activities will be more fruitful or lead to improved results. The period between the new and full moon (first and second quarters) is considered as the best time to perform tasks that require strength, fertility and growth. The period between the full and new moon (third and fourth quarters) is best for harvesting, retarding growth, etc. Consideration is also given to the relationship the moon has with the 12 ruling signs of the zodiac.

Farmers' Almanac Best Days,

UGGH!!! Somethings grown/blown into my pasture and produced these?? Even though they're very pretty, they cannot stay.  Pasture mow next week.

Thanks for always listening to my jibber. Hope your week gets off to an amazing start ~ Debi


  1. What is that growing in your pasture? Is it bad for the horses if they eat it???

  2. The foggy morning looks lovely. Those volunteers growing in the pasture are pretty. I'd like to know if they would hurt your horses too and that's why you have to mow them down.

    Have a great week ~ FlowerLady

  3. Thank you for reminding me to link to the Farmer's Almanac. I often visit the website and intend to pick up a copy of this bible of sorts. I try to follow the moon as often as I can and will soon be posting about how I failed to notice the signals from The Man On The Moon and missed the coming of the 2nd generation of hornworms. So much for the peppers, the last veggies standing.

    And, thanks, too for the walk. I love horses in the mist, doggies on the run, a little me time and a good cuppa coffee early in the a.m.

  5. What a beautiful day with the fog! Too bad those pretty little flowers have to go--they must not be good for the horses?

  6. I loved walking with you in the fog! And yes, sometimes pretties begin to grow in our pastures! And mowed down they get!!!

  7. Your ground fog photo is lovely. We get that too but some of ours come rolling in from the beach also. - We just picked up a Farmer's A. and are going to keep track of how close it is to our weather this year, it should be fun.

  8. How pretty everything looks in the fog!! You really live in a magical place!


  9. I have great memories of hearing my Grandfather talk about the Farmers Almanac--It was really like the bible, wasn't it? :-)

    Your fog pictures are really great--We've had a lot here too, and do you think I've remembered my camera?? no....

    By the way, this week, I'm going to try making your delicious ratatouille, I can't wait!!
