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.

2012 Begins

This is how the new year dawned. A faint orange glow appeared in the east.

Then a bit of blue. The day—and year—dawned clear.

Pink clouds passed through the blue sky. To the south, fog hung low around Turkeycock Mountain. 

Soon the sun was up, and the fog rose a bit.

In the pasture, a daisy bloomed. This is the first year we've ever had daisies on New Year's Day.  

At full daylight,  jet trails cross-crossed the western sky. Jack's Mountain is the lump above the treeline.

In the still frosty pasture, cats go on patrol.

That's how the day—and year—began. Happy New Year to one and all!
