Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

While the Sun Shines

Make hay while the sun shines, the old saying goes.

Luckily we had sunny days for haying all three of our farms. Polecat Creek Farm and Smith Farm are done. The Brown Place is almost done. The hay in the above picture is on the side field of Smith Farm. This hay will feed my horses this winter.

What's black and white and yellow and green?

What's black and white and—ah, you know it's going to be a border collie doing something. After a morning of running in the hayfields, Maggie cools off in Standiford Creek.

Today was warm, but those yellow leaves beside the creek are hints that autumn drops.
