It was raining again, but thankfully for the moment, it was a gentle rain. I did not even wear a rain jacket or carry an umbrella as I did the animal chores, though I did wear a cap to shield my eyeglasses.

    We had been planning to adopt a parrot for quite some time, but certainly not until after the move into our log home, where we would have a bit more room to spread our wings, so to say. It has certainly seemed as though every square inch of our 388- square-foot cabin is taken up with various assorted treasures that we have gathered over the past 12 years.

    It was cold outside, barely above freezing, but thankfully the sun was shining, and I soon found myself taking off my jacket and then my flannel shirt. With my work only just begun, beads of sweat had begun to form across my brow. I opened up the roof vents and then the side vents, and I was thankful to feel the sweetness of the cool air that blew across my forehead.

    One might think that 24 are enough. Greg certainly does, but I curiously do not. Of some, I only have one and of others just a few. And then there are those that are older and stay close to the upper field and retire early in the evening. I know that sometime, someday, I will find a still pile of pretty feathers that will no longer follow me, clucking her way into my heart.

    We all live with the sun. Our world passes around the sun on its yearly orbit, and with each passing, we grow another year older, and perhaps, we hope, another year wiser.

    The late February sky was blue. The air was crisp. The pigeons flew across the creek valley, and the chickens wandered about, out in the orchard. I was contentedly hard at work watching my burn pile burn, and it occurred to me that this self-proclaimed task of watching the pile burn was somewhat like fishing. Watch, wait and simply enjoy being the outside, until Greg stopped by, that is.

    The sun has been shining for the past few days, and oh, what joy it has brought. Perhaps the receding mud has been my very favorite aspect of this recent sunshine.

    The workers would rather try to keep the brood warm and expend needed energy, and both bees and brood would die. So the beekeeper maintains her careful watch as she and her bees wait patiently for spring. And yes, it is raining again, and the creek still roars.

    Greg stepped outside to get the night’s supply of firewood, but it seemed that no sooner had he left, then he was back with a big grin spread across his face. He stood in the doorway. “Get your boots on. You’ve got to check this out.”

    For the past several weeks, Greg has been running the vent pipes and water lines throughout our log home. It has suddenly occurred to me that there really is so much more than often meets the eye. The world is filled with things that I really do not understand and simply take for granted – such as indoor plumbing. I now know that to plumb is no easy task.
