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.

    It seemed odd, to see the sun actually shinning and white clouds floating slowly across the blue sky overhead. The grassy field, dotted with ball players, was amazingly green and was surrounded by brightly clothed spectators. Some lady folk wore the floor length garb of days long past. Others sported the far cooler summertime wear of modern times.

    Without a doubt, I believe that my very favorite part of the day is when I climb the stairs to the loft and drift off to sleep. For some reason, sleep always comes easily here in the creek valley, and as my eyes close, I find myself dreaming of what tomorrow might bring.

    I really do not want to pull on my rubber boots and step outside the ground floor door to do the evening animal chores. The front porch is so comfortably dry, and my rocking chair is ever so relaxing.

    This particular hen and her offspring are certainly carrying a bit of both of our hearts.

    Total body immersion is always a wonderful way to cool off, but we have also learned that cool feet quickly lead to cool self. All we need to do is sit on a rock beside the water, take off our shoes and socks and stretch our legs out into the water. Yes indeed, water really is magic.

    We had not been at the creek long when an older gentleman stopped by with his companion. He walked up the hill to the little cabin, knocked on the door and asked if we would allow him to continue fishing in his very favorite fishing hole, not too far up creek from the old tobacco barn. He explained to us that he had been fishing this particular hole for over 40 years and that our valley was his very favorite place in the world. Of course, we answered yes.

    The creek rises and falls, the seasons come and go, and it now seems that after 16 years of walking beside the creek and working the valley’s ground, I have begun to understand just a wee bit about this country life.

    It was a chilly spring day, but from past experience I knew to dress for the weather. I finished my morning farm chores, packed up my marbles, and after a quick goodbye peck on Greg’s cheek I drove off, heading up to town for the day. As I unloaded my table and began to set up my mibs, I smiled at the now-familiar faces I have come to know from years past.
