Today it was amazingly hot at the creek. There was not even the slightest breath of air, and the parched ground actually felt hot under the soles of my shoes. I remembered back to the hot city sidewalks of my childhood.

    Without any doubt, our dream really did come true, but I must confess that as we sit on the new front porch and look out across the creek valley, we cannot see the chickens, or pigeons, or goats. The little cabin blocks our view. It is nice to see the little cabin and think of all the memories it holds, but I really do miss the view beyond.

    I do not know what became of my father’s ducks. Quite likely he gave them to a child who happened to visit or to a friend who had a particularly adored grandchild, for I do know that he found great joy in giving things to folks who appreciated whatever it was that he had to give. I also remember when I told him that Greg and I now had ducks at our farm, that he beamed with real joy, “Remember, Christine, to always keep your ducks in a row.”

    This is that time of year when it seems that the multiflora roses literally cascade down along the edges of the creek valley road and fields, their white blossoms everywhere.

    As I write, I look over across the driveway to the little cabin. One of the dogs is sleeping on the front porch. I suppose that it will take them some time to get used to living in the lap of spacious luxury, too.

    We have built many steel-roofed buildings on the farm over the past 15 years and cleared a pasture and then lined it with wire fencing. We have brought home what now seem like countless pieces of old farm equipment, all of which Greg has reworked into top-notch running machines, though some still sport a fine rust-colored patina.

    We know of three pawpaw groves on the farm. The trees are long and slender and grow off of a central tap root. Their early spring flowers turn into large green fruits that ripen in the fall and taste like banana custard. As I walked below the many pawpaw flowers, I imagined that this would be the perfect pawpaw year, as long as there were no more hard frosts and any hard rains held off until the flowers had begun to set fruit.

    The only way I can think to describe this past week is as a week of learning. Ninety high school seniors from a city several hours away came to our county to work and to learn.

    I would hardly say that I am an animal trainer. Our dogs know how to sit and lie down and will occasionally come when we call.

    It was raining again, but thankfully for the moment, it was a gentle rain. I did not even wear a rain jacket or carry an umbrella as I did the animal chores, though I did wear a cap to shield my eyeglasses.
