Good day

I knew it was raining before I opened my eyes this morning. Raindrops on the roof sounded like a kettledrum. The chimes on the back deck were dancing in the wind.

When I started the coffee to brewing, I opened the back garden door and stood watching the pine and sweet gum trees sway in the wind. Higher up above stove-grey clouds I could hear a much angrier wind.

After coffee, we needed to get the dogs out to take care of business so we walked a lap through the field and around the barn. On the way back as I stepped around the gate, I saw some kind of centipede. He was as thick as my little finger.

I took a quick photo, but I gave him a wide berth.

We have a gig in two weeks, and so we're upping our practice schedule. We're cranked about that.

Tonight we had dinner with friends.

All in all, it's been a good day.


  1. It sounds like an excellent day. And doesn't the air smell delicious after rain?

  2. A good rainy day is great when you have a roof over your head, heat and coffee on the burner...and you had no plans for fishing or golf.

  3. Imma thinking that we are getting your rain front about now. But not sure. We do need the rain.
    The best to you and the pretty lady,
    Sherry & jack

  4. t does sound like a wonderful day, but I'd b giving that centipede a wide birth too.

  5. It's been raining on and off here but we have had enough. The soil is drenched and the water level is high. It's time that you got all the rain that you needed, I'm sure the trees are happy about that.

    Hugs, Julia

  6. I would also give that centipede a wide berth. They give me the shivers. It sounds like you had a nice day
