Rain, and lots of it. I'm glad to see it but we are staying buttoned up in the house today. Thursday and Friday it's supposed to get down into the mid teens here. Still have a few minor things to do to get ready for that, mostly concerning the well pump house. Won't take long if the rain will stop for an hour or so.
We did an impromptu trip into town yesterday. Spur of the moment type of thing. Bought some hog jowls at the grocery store. This time of year, the dogs need fat and hog jowls are the best way to get it to them. But people use the hog jowls for cooking things like Lima beans, butter beans, black eyed peas, and soup, so they can be hard to find. We had to buy smoked jowls yesterday even though the dogs much prefer raw jowls. You take what you can get.
We went to our favorite restaurant. We have been going there for decades. It changes names but stays the same. Went around three so it would not be busy, and it wasn't. It was really nice to be inside, with a good meal, with no dishes to clean up, and be warm. They keep it warm in there since their clientele is largely comprised of old people and we get cold easily!
We were all set to watch "The Doctor Blake Mysteries" and "The Father Brown Mysteries" on PBS yesterday, but they were showing something else! Shock and dismay. That's one of our routines. Tried to watch "MARS" on National Geographic at nine but couldn't stay awake.
Today will surely be dull. That's ok though. I can read and at noon Rush is on. I usually listen to the first hour or so of that, before the "phone lines" come into play.
