Kickin' back, musing, observing, and gathering inspiration from the hills of East Tennessee.

I look out my window and see a blessed sight - it is raining!!! The vegetables in the garden are giving out a collective sigh of relief. We are finally getting rain. Of course I've been watering the garden every few days with our spring water overflow, but, as my maternal grandfather said, there's nothing like rain for the garden. The hydrogen in the rain is good for it. Last year we were terribly dry all summer, but luckily the spring kept on springing. There must be a large reservoir of water under them thar hills!
Tonight we are going to friends' house to eat and sit around the campfire and I don't care if we have to hold up umbrellas - let it rain!
Rabbits cookin' coffee -- that's what the locals call it. But here in this little hollow in East Tennessee, when the hills surrender their misty hostage to reveal the stalwart cedars growing by the stream in our pasture, I know there is no place on earth I would rather be. The welcome mat is out! Come and sit on the porch and chat with me awhile!
