Since the last two days have basically been “Random Photo Days”, I’m going to leave you this weekend with something a little different.
Today, it rained. It had already started when we awoke this morning and progessively got worse. I had nowhere to go, so I just hunkered down with a good book, a warm throw, the fireplace crackling and putting out a little heat, Bear at my feet, and Maddie in my lap. Ted left for his volunteer job at noon (in the rain), and I just snuggled down further into my chair. I took a nap, went outside only long enough for Bear and Maddie to “do their business”, then came back in and napped and read some more. It was wonderful!
The City Council met at 5 p.m. this afternoon, and Ted and I went to hear what was happening on an issue we are interested in. Ted got home early from work, and we both put on rainpants and raincoats over our jeans and sweaters. It was pouring rain, and the wind was beginning to get stronger. I’m so glad I had ordered a taxi.
After the meeting, we dashed over to the Pink Pony for a sandwich, and by the time we had eaten, the weather had gotten even worse. We boarded a taxi to go home, and realized the rain was blowing into the taxi. It was a pretty miserable ride.
Home really looked good by the time we got there, and we were just happy we didn’t have to travel as far as the other passenger, who was going all the way out to Stonecliffe – another 2 miles.
I just looked at the radar, and more rain is on the way. And, as the night progresses, we are supposed to have gale force winds into Friday. Looks like another “hunker down” day for tomorrow!
But, what can I expect? It’s Fall on Mackinac Island!
Have a great weekend, and I’ll see you back here Monday morning, good Lord willing.
