Rainy Autumn Days...


     Another rainy day here; fine with me.
     As I have mentioned before, I tend to get more accomplished on rainy days rather than sunny days.  Got up; got the kids to school; did a dab of cleaning (as the saying goes, "a little dab will do ya")  and then visited with a good friend; which was the highlight of the morning.  Now, I will write a bit; work on a few other aspects of Sadie's; then start some bread before going to pick the kids up from school.  Who knows what I'll accomplish once they come home, but I know it will include some smiles and hugs.  Good by me.

     I think I have mentioned it before, but if not, I love fall.  Once it gets cool enough to freeze out the mosquitoes; I am quite content and slip into my relaxed state of mind for the next few weeks, before the craziness of the holidays takes over.

    With Halloween approaching, I always try to read as many of the horror classics that I can.  Sorry, I am a wimp admittedly and cannot make it through more than a few pages of Stephen King.  Brilliant writer, but messes too much with my psyche.  So these are the ones that I can manage, and still get a good night's sleep.

Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving-  Read recently for the first time.  Great fun and a quick read, less than 100 pages.

The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury-  Can't say enough good about this wonderful book.

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley- Good, but I always feel sad for the monster.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson- Another good and quick read.  Just a little over 100 pages.

Dracula by Bram Stoker- Been awhile since I have read this and; I found it a bit hard to get into; but will try once again.

     Hope you are enjoying your day, whatever the weather.  Tomorrow, it is my intention to share with all, some yummy fall beers I have discovered.   Sadly, only through description will I be sharing.

All the same,
Cheerio!
