Happy Weekend

It was rainy-fied again today. The weather app on my phone kept sending me notifications that the rain would end by 1:45 p.m. Then, it said 3:10 p.m. The next notification I got said, "Who in the heck knows when it will stop raining in Empire?" 

The dogs were restless, so I bundled up and took them out for a while. It was misting with a wind out of the west. I flipped up the collar on my insulated vest. After a hellish summer and fall, the cold felt good on my face. 

Our old coffee maker was on its last leg. It was still making coffee, but it was leaking. Using some of my mad money that I've made writing and bought a new coffee machine. It came today. I won't say much about it because I plan to write my column for next week about how we decided on this particular machine.

The light has been dreary all day, so I went into the archives and got a picture of the old house down by the barn. I took the photo in November 2016.  Hopefully, the sun will be back tomorrow, and I can take some fresh pictures.

Happy weekend.


  1. LOVE the photo! We spent a good part of the day cleaning up the yard, mulching, tossing trash, winterizing roses, getting flower pots put away until next year, etc.

  2. Get out the rake!

  3. A very happy weekend to you.

  4. I love the photo! I can almost smell fall in the air..

  5. I am jealous. I love that old house. It looks like my Great Grandpa house. In addition, I must say it makes a great subject for photography and you do a great job. I started to say Imma learn about them F-stops and such, but I'd be lying. I'll just enjoy someone's ability to know filters and f-stops. (smile)

  6. I hope you do have a happy weekend. We have our first snow of the season here on the ground today. Good I'll be keeping warm on the inside and don't have to go out. The wind is blowing and more leaves are falling too, on the new fallen snow. Looking forward to hearing about that new coffee maker. Wondering what kind you got.
