Rain ~ My Creek ~ Bruiser ~ California Rain/Radar Flood Warning ~ Indian Pudding


Good 39º extremely foggy morning.

By noon yesterday we had gotten another 1/2" of rain and then no more. Supposedly today we are getting rain and approximately another 1/2".  

Talked to pal Patty over at the coast and when we got the 2" of rain, they got 4" of that wet stuff!!! YIKES.

My seasonal creek is filled up and racing to the Evans Creek.... this is right behind the house, coming down from the pond:

More coming down the hill from the neighbors:



Five years ago today I posted this:


Yesterday, in the day time (unusual, as he always showed up before in the dark) the feral cat, "BC" (Black Cat) returned! I had not seen him, nor had any of the food in the back of the golf card disappeared since the Saturday before the Super Bowl. He's been out and about. I thought for sure he was dead. So, when I saw him I got a can of cat food and took it out. He panicked and ran into the trees. I called him several times and left the food. He came back as soon as I came inside...

I had to take these pictures through the darkened glass door and the screen...so not too clear....
It will take a while for him to accept me and not be scared. I am so happy he's back and safe!


Now he sleeps in my slippers...



or on his perch by the door....


And while he's comfy this is what keeps us cozy and warm:

Break time. Maybe I'll try my hand at Indian Pudding. Gerry is part Indian and born in Britain, so the history would make for more convivial conversation than the current opener at mealtime "What did Donald do today?" Some days that is fine, but pro and con, the obsessive saturation of the news doesn't hit me as healthy. I put the coverage in the same category as opera. Which is to say- a little goes a long way.

What Indian tribe is Gerry related to? My Jerry was part Cherokee. I think I will make this pudding too. Love cornmeal!!! xo
