It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

Brownie is waiting.., and no matter what Murphy says to him,
he's not going to be OK until this wet, gloomy weather goes away.
He will not look at me. He walks around like he has lost a good friend.
"Come on Brownie. The sun will shine again."

I totally get where Brownie is coming from. Sometimes I feel like I just hold my breath right through January and February with a big sign in March because spring is finally close. xo, suzy

Brownie, someday you and me will have to have a 'chaw' about how we are just perkier when the sun is out and warming us. Sunflowers will be popping up before you know it, pal.

Big warm hug from

A little rain must fall for the vegetation to renew it self in the spring. Tell Brownie it is always darkest before the dawn and that it will get better. Have a great day. Madeline

Did you explain to him what the rain is doing for our reservoirs? ;-) (I'm ecstatic)

How sweet they are. I have recently informed my husband . . . I will be wholely unfulfilled if I never have goats and at least two lambs in my lifetime. He swallowed hard since we live in the city. ;)
