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.
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
