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.

Icy Morning

An ice storm was predicted for much of southwest Virginia. Yesterday, we filled water tubs for the critters and put another round bale in the pasture for the horses. Luckily we didn't get too bad an icing. We only lost power for a few seconds this morning, but it came back on.

All the bushes and trees are bejeweled, though.

The Rose of Sharon by the garage.

These orbs are moisture, not spirits. (I think.)

A good day to stay in and do housework.

Or maybe write. Or read.

I am glad I was able to stay in today. I'm not a fan of ice!
