Rain? ~ Bruiser & My iPad ~ Sunday Football Schedule ~ Rand Craig ~ TV Shows ~ Cherries Jubilee

Good 55º looks like rain, smells like rain morning. BUT.... the weather people said it will be "much warmer" today than yesterday.

Yesterday about 10:20 we got 12 or 6 drops of rain. Lasted for less than 20 minutes. Ground did show signs of dampness, but not much! Temperature stayed about 55º all day. Shoot, I had to turn on the heater!!!

I was sitting in my chair after dinner watching TV. I was also playing solitaire on my iPad. Bruiser climbed on my lap, leaned on the arm where the iPad was and was watching the game I was playing.

So I went to youtube and found a video that cats will go nuts for:
Here is a 47 second video of Bruiser watching the video... and when the birds chirped he looked around the room to see if they were inside!

If you have cats or a cat... click the first link and set your paw pal(s) in front of the screen!

Later it was chair, wine, and new episodes of Chicago Med and Fire. Watched some of the new show MacGyver starring a baby, 28 year old Lucas Till:
Will watch it again before I decide if I like it or not, as the original MacGyver from 1985-1992 was a favorite of mine.

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao.

National Cherries Jubilee Day

National Cherries Jubilee Day will make cherry lovers jubilant. If you enjoy cherries, you must absolutely love this day.
Cherries Jubilee is easy to make. All you need is a can of cherry pie filling, some cognac (or brandy) and vanilla ice cream.
Here is a quick simple recipe:
I don't like Paula Deen, but this is the easy way and you can use canned cherry pie filling instead of cooking some....

Ice ~ Fall For Sure ~ Dude/Bruiser ~ Deer ~ Rain Drop ~ Moon Mullin ~ Chicken Cordon Bleu ~ Patriots/Texans ~ Sunflowers

Good 39º cloudy ice on the barn roof morning...

The ice only accumulates on the part of the roof that is over the upstairs apartment that is insulated.

Breakfast was two eggs scrambled up with a spoonful of mayonnaise, a couple spoonfuls of black beans, and a handful of grated Parmesan, and cooked in the Egg-Tastic... that and a tomato, a rice cake sprayed with butter spray and two mozzarella sticks..... YUMMMMMMMM!

Yesterday was certainly feeling like the first day of Fall. By noon it was only 68º. Nice!!!
More cloud photos... only because they are one of the things I love....

While I was taking pictures of the clouds, Dude and Bruiser were relaxing on the porch...

And two little deer showed up. They love the acorns that fall from the oak trees. Not so skittery any more, when I come outside with my camera. Guess they figured I was OK....

One of their favorite things, besides the leaves on the grapevine, the leaves on the apple and pear trees, is the acorns that drop from the oak trees.

At 1:30 it started sprinkling rain. Lasted a few minutes, heard it on the patio roof, but the ground never got wet. Sigh..................

BTW........ and I'm good at it too!!! :-)
