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"

Scrabble Babble

We had a huge thunder storm last night. Woke us all up. Wow! It was wild.
I want everyone to know that I gave at least a third of the Lemon Bars that I baked yesterday to a neighbor... so we didn't eat them all ourselves.
And, did you know that it's National Scrabble Day today. I discovered this when I visited Heidi Ann at Gold Country Girls a while ago.

Also...It's Friday the 13th. Yea!
I think I hear more thunder.
It's raining again... and I'm home alone.
I'm going to pass on posting much today and lay low.
I feel a bad cloud  moving overhead.

So, go play a game of Scrabble,
 and lay low...
Until tomorrow.

I didn't know that there is a National Scrabble Day! Very cool!

;-)

It sounds like a perfect day to play Scrabble or snuggle on the couch and read a book. I just finished the "Hunger Games" trilogy and now I NEED to start something else.

thirteen is a change number- just think positive and make it good!
Thunder is ok, if scary- look how everything grows better afterwards, even better than rainfall alone

Thunderstorms can be very scary but it is just part of mother nature. We get them quite frequently here. Have a blessed Sunday. Madeline
