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.

    I love this time of year. The morning air is wonderfully cool, and as I walk across the yard to do the animal chores, I leave behind a trail of footsteps through the dew-covered grass. I find myself retracing my steps, much as through the winter snow, not wanting to mar the pristine beauty of the sparkling dew-covered field.

    I realized that age had afforded these wonderful ladies the freedom to go where they chose to go, happily embracing both the past and the present, and that with age, they had gained the courage to welcome new adventures, such as driving down the creek valley road for an afternoon visit to an off-grid farm. And yes, I am still smiling.

    I feel as though the sound of the falling rain is a soothing backdrop to my thoughts, sometimes picking up in intensity, other times slacking off to gentle patter. It occurs to me that all of the creek creatures, Greg and I included, have slowed our pace and adapted to the wet day outside.

    All was not quite right with their world, but I knew that their new queen would climb from her cramped cell within a few days, and that as soon as her scent passed from bee to bee and all throughout the hive, that this colony's buzzing would contentedly reflect that all was once again well.
