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.

'Tis the season

Today is the first day of winter. Even though, the air is slightly chilly, it's still too warm for winter. My bridal wreath bush is blooming, and down at the farm some forsythias are in bloom, too.

I'm into minimalist decorating this year. The patchwork wreath is on the front door, some holly sprigs are on the mantle, and dangling from the ficus are a couple of horsie ornaments—the main one being a little stuffed horse that neighs "We Three Kings of Orient Are" when you push its belly (a gift from my former college roommate and her daughter who have an interesting sense of humor). That's it for decorations.

Anyhow, the little stuffed singing horse looks like Melody and even sports a Santa hat like the one Melody is wearing in the picture. I finally addressed some Christmas cards today and took them to the post office. Tomorrow, I'll do the rest.
