Old rainy day in December

Today was an old rainy day. When I got up for a glass of water sometime around 3 a.m. I could hear the wind in the chimes. I opened the back door and looked out over the field toward the barn. The sky was cloudy, but There were light spots where the moon was trying to shine through.

Sometime after 4 a.m., the rain came so hard that it sounded like thunder on the roof. Caillou, as I've mentioned before is no fan of storms. I coaxed him into the adjoining bathroom and closed the door. With the exhaust fan running, he settles down,

Jilda is training a new yoga instructor where she works and had to be there early. I did a few chores before heading to meetings. The temperature had dropped 15 degrees since the early morning.

And it's only gotten colder all day long.

There wasn't much of a chance to shoot pictures today, so I dipped into the archives and found this picture of a bluejay eating seed from the back deck banister. It was taken 15 years ago today.


  1. Love the bluebird photo! We've been having dreary rainy days here too....I love the rain but can't wait until the sun is shining again. Have a great week.

  2. LOVE the bluebird. Envy the rain and the chill.

  3. Rain here most of the day and has turn off cooler. Love the pictures of the blue birds.

  4. Blue Jays are pretty, but they are also mean! My mom called them the feeder bullies.

  5. We will feel the cool down this way, so please keep the door closed up in Alabama. That is a beautiful picture of the Blue-J, mama said they were mean.

  6. What a difference the years make, that blue jay looks to be enjoying a sunny day. Here ut us sunny but below freezing cold out.

  7. Rain is nice. Snow is pretty. I am already tired of cold. I do believe I am getting old.

  8. I think you and I always have the same weather.
    Yesterday was rather warm and cloudy. Today it was rainy as the temperatures keep dropping.
    Beautiful Blue Jay but the are mean.
