Remember when I was complaining about the heat here? And then when I was gloating that it was no longer hot here? Well we are at 54 degrees and raining. We've been getting some rain almost every day for the last ten days or so. It's been a steady rain all day today so far. Last night we got some wicked Mississippi like downpours. I LOVED it! Our temps will be in the 60's this weekend and then slowly climb back up into the low 80's by the middle of next week. AND we are supposed to get snow at 10,000 ft this weekend (We are at just over 6,000 ft.) Woo Hoo! Bring on the apple cider baby!
I loved living in the South and there is much that I miss. The heat and humidity? NO THANKS! I was so desperate for the feeling of fall that one time I totally cranked the air conditioner so that I could have a fire in the fireplace and serve hot apple cider during the bible study we were hosting. Mr. Macchiato came home and had a COW. Yeah, totally birthed a calf right there in the living room. I was all... "It's OCTOBER! It is supposed to be chilly!"
Anyway, I think I'm going to switch out my American Flag quilt this weekend and put the Fall one on my bed. I've already been down to the storage area of our basement and fondled our fall decorations. I usually wait until the day after Labor Day to switch quilts but... I just love Fall so. It is my favorite. Yup, even more than Christmas. But, I love Christmas... My least favorite season? Hmmmm... it is a total toss up between the end of winter and middle of summer. I think I dislike them both equally.
Oh! Guess what we are having for dinner tonight? Chili and cornbread!!! I can turn my oven on and not die from the heat. Yesssssssss!!! And if you are wondering... yes, I did go to Starbucks today and yes, I've probably had a tad too much caffiene. If I could talk right I'd be totally yakking off someone's ear right now.
Huh, I titled this random bits... that must mean I was going to tell some unrelated stuff but now I can't remember... I seem to recall Double Shot totally cracking me up earlier but I can't remember why. Huh... it's gone. He did tickle his gaseous self in the car on the way to practice when he made me momentarily blind and gag at the same time... but, I don't think that was funny.
By the way, Frappy is in a better mood today. Not great, but better. She came down to root around in the bags I brought home.
Frappy: What's all this stuff? (she pulled some clothing for me from a bag)
Me: Those are my new work out clothes.
Frappy: BWAAAAA HAAAA HAAAA HAAAA!
Me: Shut up.
Hmmmmmm.... what else... OH! Paco, THE TERRORIST, needs his wings clipped again and was flying around yesterday. I went over to him and had him step up on my finger so I could put him back on the top of the cage. That little @*#@%$! BIT ME. And he drew BLOOD! Needless to say, I have not talked to nor pet him today.
Times up. Gotta drag Double Shot back out into the rain. He's whining. He He He...
