I’ve been told


I have had several emails in the last few days and 2 phone calls today about not keeping up here.  Soooooo, I am going to go outside and show you what it looks like here behind the house on October 23, 2009.

It rained so hard about 30 minutes ago, that I actually stopped what I was doing to see what the commotion outside was all about.

This is the view from the bay window

The other day, Mike said the falling leaves were making an awful noise.  He was right.  It was quite noisy.

Today is the perfect kind of day, I think.  It is wet, cold and gloomy. Just right for getting outside and being rained on and all cold and frozen, only to come back inside have some hot cocoa with a shot of rum and some whipped cream on top.  We call that Russian Chocolate.  Or maybe an Irish Coffee?    Or a Pharisaer?  num, num  One of my all time favorite drinks.

Recipe:

Pour strong black coffee into a regular sized coffee cup, add one lump of sugar,  add a shot-glass full of braun Jamaican rum and on top of that a good sized dollop of  homemade whipped cream.  Do not stir but drink the coffee with the rum through the whipped cream.

Beware!! If you are drinking that in a restaurant or a bar and you stir it,  you are obligated to buy a drink for everyone at the restaurant!  The bartenders are going to make sure to let you know that they have caught you in a “no-no” , heheh

  1. Gosling’s Black Seal dark rum — my absolute favorite. Smooth, mellow, great depth of flavor. Perfect for this, and also fabulous for mulled cider. One of my favorite things about autumn.

    (This has been an unsolicited testimonial. 😉 )

    • Hey Voldy, where have you been?
      Of course a bottle of Gosling’s Black Seal dark rum is on it’s way, isn’t it? Oh I have been dreaming again 😛

      OMGosh the weather was soooo nasty today. Just so fun.

  2. I to have missed your E-mail postings, but I understand. Great day to read a book, or take a nap after that nice warm drink. K.K.

  3. Hi Kay, I didn’t post by email. I have had emails telling me to get back to writing, heheh. Here I am. Trying to write.

  4. Oh I don’t care what you call it, pour me one too!!

  5. Iris,
    Let’s see some pics of the new roof-or did I miss it?

    • I don’t think you’ve missed it, Cindy. The weather has been so stupid, not nice enough to think about taking the camera and doing something with it, ya know?
      I will go out and post pics 🙂
