I heard that our city friends and family were placing bets as to how long I would last in the country. Fifteen years later, I imagine that all bets are off. Wild horses could not drag me back to the city.

    It was then that the call of a mourning dove began to float through the windows, carried on the still wet air. Smaller birds began to chirp and whistle, and Greg and I sat at the breakfast table, sipping our coffee. How wonderful to be surrounded by the sounds of a wet creek valley morning.

    We have been raising homing pigeons for quite a few years now. They are pure white and look so beautiful when on a day like today they fly in their pigeon formation in a giant circle just above the creek valley ridge tops with a clear blue sky backdrop. As they pass by overhead, I can hear the clip of their wing beats. In time, they land on top of the windmill tower, and then, one by one, they glide down to the door at the front of their coop to safely gather inside.

    I must confess, sometimes toward the end of the day when we sit back on the front porch swing and the air is perfectly still, and it is too hot to move, that it occurs to us to climb into our air-conditioned vehicle and drive the extra-long way out to a very leisurely air-conditioned dinner.

    Without a doubt, it was a warm day. We puttered about the farm, doing a few small tasks that needed doing.

    It was going to be a perfect day. Just a wee bit chilly in the early morning and not too terribly hot in the afternoon.

    As I sat on the porch swing, looking out past the goat yard toward the apiary, I had to smile. I may well have been quite “bee side myself” just a little bit ago, but now I felt so perfectly wonderful, swinging gently through the creek valley air, two of my dogs napping lazily by my side.

    This toad has been our side deck toad for the past several years, and every summer he returns, bigger and fatter, than he was the year before. He seems to show no fear, and many evenings, I have sat down on the edge of the deck beside him, pulling my knees up to my chest to take on more of a toad-like shape, and we have silently watched the fireflies flitting at the edge of the woods.

    I felt richly rewarded, but perhaps my favorite marble reward occurred a while ago as Greg and I were leaving the grocery store up town. A little girl reached up to tug on her mother’s hand. “Look Mom, it’s the marble lady!” I smiled. Actually, I am still smiling!

    I have come to know so many birds since we have made our home here at the creek. The wild ones call beautifully each spring morning, their chorus so loud that it would be impossible to sleep in after a hard day’s work, and many of the tame ones I have come to know individually, each with their own distinct personality.
