Saturday Afternoon


I have someone’s cold, wet Fall weather.  It put a damper on my plans for the weekend but it’s OK since there is plenty of college football on the screen and some inside chores to keep me busy since I can’t get outside.  I think it’s a bit of a comfort food night as well but everything tastes like medicine.  At least that bit has my cold on its heels.  I’d give almost anything for a decent night’s sleep right now.

The rain and the cold chills to the bone.  I get shivers up and down my spine when the breeze picks up.  The rain has been attacking the leaves in my maple tree slowly picking them off one by one.  The limbs are slowly matching my crab apple with its bare branches swaying in the wind empty for the most part save a solitary leaf found every now and then.  Peak time for leaves has definitely passed leaving a cold and grey autumn in its wake.

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at:

  1. I remember that time when fall was just starting and then this cold freezing rain just tore the leaves off the tress leaving it all bare without a chance for the leaves to bask in it’s autumnal colors! Ghastly ice storm! Yup!

  2. Hope you feel better soon . Get a big glass of orange juice, squeeze the juice of a lemon in it and drink it all down. Works for me every time. Of course I don’t get sick often so it could be a coincidence .

    On another note, the central air still runs here in the land of eternal summer …
