There is nothing in the world quite like a piping hot bowl of oatmeal cereal on a cold winter morning. During warmer weather, Greg and I typically dine on a combination of flakes, slivered almonds, raw pumpkin seeds and raisins.

    No sooner had I set the basket down on the counter when my phone rang. A warm voice greeted me. I did not know him, but he knew me. We had spoken once on the phone years before, and then, as now, he had simply called to let me know how much he has enjoyed looking through the paper to find my stories and read them and share them with his daughter.

    The chickens began to head to their roosts. I heard a few gentle mooing calls from the pasture, and as the sunlight slipped away and the sky darkened, I knew that it was just about time to call it a day. What a perfect, sunshine-filled day it had been.

    Yes, this time of year is special for so many reasons – holiday craft sales, family gatherings, dinner plates piled high with the most amazing foods – but for one brief instant, perfection surrounds me completely in the still warmth of the fire. Eyes closed, I smile. I could not be more thankful.

    It seems that of late we have heard more of the screeching caw of our neighboring eagles as we go about our creek valley lives, but it is still rare that we actually see them. Mid-summer, we saw one sitting high in a tree on the upper edge of our upper field.

    I woke up. It was a chicken morning, and the first thing that I saw was a chicken at my window and about 20 at my door. They were clucking at me impatiently and reminding me that even though we had set our clocks back an hour, the official time did not faze them in the least.

    And I certainly know, without any doubt, that his dear daughter, now grown and the mother of two of our beautiful grandchildren, was absolutely right. Her father really can do anything, anything that he can dream of, with only one provision. He still cannot cook.

    Time to remember. Time to learn to make the time, and take the time, to stop by and visit with friends. And just as summer has turned to fall, and the days are warm but the early mornings often hover close to freezing, I wonder when the time will come to light the first fire of the season.

    I sit under my tent, contentedly watching, selling the occasional wine bottle wind-chime and giving away marbles to any children who happen along. It has so warmed my heart, and I am so pleased to report that I have learned today that children can range in age from being pushed by their parents in strollers to sporting canes and hearing aids.

    This past weekend was a busy weekend indeed, but curiously we were not doing any farm work at all. Two different groups had asked if they could stop by and see what it is that we do. Of course, we said yes.
