MY DAILY CALENDAR…DAY 296 – OCTOBER 23, 2013

MY DAILY CALENDAR FOR WEDNESDAY, DAY 296 OF 2013: OK, remember how gloomy yesterday was ….

GLOOMY SKIES

GLOOMY SKIES

 

By 4:00 pm it got even worse when the gloomy grey skies started turning to black!

Storms Moving In

Storms Moving In

Mlle: Renee has a sixth sense about weather and she had been in the backyard for her afternoon inspection of the grounds. All of a sudden she came running into the house with her tail between her legs and headed into the safe corner of my bedroom.  Renee is not a fan of bad weather. By the time I got to the back door it was already raining and too late the get the back door carpet that had been drying on the deck railing.

And then the rain came down.

And then the rain came down.

It really wasn’t torrential, but it was slow and steady for about an hour. And it did bring down a lot more leaves!  It also caused the temps to drop a bit more, and we woke up this morning with a lot more leaves covering the ground and temps in the mid to upper 30s. Guess that means we might be able to look forward to a bit of Native American Summer.  You know, being politically correct is alright, but it sure takes a lot of romance out of writing.

Anyway, I was able to throw my left over biscuits from yesterday in the toaster this morning. Didn’t have any apple butter left, but I topped them with butter and maple syrup. How fall can you get!

TODAY’S ORIGAMI CHALLENGE – THE CLASSIC FLAPPING BIRD:sugarAnd considering what today is, I had to make one major (league) change to the origami. Instead of a blue bird, I made a flapping red bird.

And I’ll flap my bird’s wings every time they score tonight!

BookWorm TODAY’S MENSA PUZZLE: I think it must be something country and western because it involves a TWANG.
