Fall had just begun to cautiously tiptoe across the creek valley. Occasional yellow leaves fluttered to the ground and the evenings had become decidedly cool. The early mornings were actually so cold that I dug my favorite flannel shirt out of the back of the closet. It was that time of year when I needed to get the last of the honey off of the hives.

    It was a wonderful drive south and a beautiful weekend, but it was also ever so wonderful to return home to the creek. As I passed over the culvert at the corner of the pasture, I could see our small herd contentedly grazing on the far side of the field. The little horses were standing right beside the cattle. All four looked up as I passed by.

    Wrangler: noun, a person in charge of livestock or a person engaging in a lengthy and complicated quarrel or dispute. Well, it appears to me, much to my amazement, that I really have become a chicken wrangler, in both senses of the word

    The first day of fall is still weeks away, but already the creek valley is signaling its approach. The brilliant greens of spring have long faded into the deep greens of summer, and now the summer greens are letting go and starting to turn to muted yellows.

    Greg and I still have many adventures and projects planned, but never in a million years could I have ever imagined such a perfect anniversary gift that I would so happily drive in the tractor parade.

    I do not know why, but of late it seems that I have fallen even more in love with my goats. Perhaps it is because we are letting them enjoy their evening free-range time on a regular basis, and we are always finding ourselves smiling as we watch their exploratory antics.

    As we walked back over to the house, it occurred to me that perhaps this whole deconstruction thing will not really be that difficult after all. Just gotta love my goats!

    When the rain stopped, it was as though someone simply pushed down the handle of the frost-free spigot, and the fast flow of water came to an abrupt halt.

    I suppose one could say that we had ourselves a hay day, or more likely two or three amazingly hot and humid hay days, one right after the other, all in what seemed like an unbelievably unending row.

    The valley was flooded with rain. It ran in torrents down the hillsides, washing away the edge of the gravel drive. The creek ran wild, five-foot rooster tails churning crazily across its middle, and I kept on checking the forecast. Somehow, I imagined that if I checked enough, the weather would surely change, but all that I could see into the foreseeable future was rain, rain and more rain.
