The Storm

This past weekend, southeastern Minnesota (my home base) got a lot of rain. It rained all day Saturday and I mean that literally...all day. But after sweating through multiple 85-degree-plus days over the past few weeks (my car doesn't have A/C), the rain of Sat and Sun was just what I needed. Call me crazy, but I look forward to the leaves turning and summer turning into fall. Summer's nice, but enough's enough. I even have a fall pic as my current screen saver.

The only issue I had with the wetness of Saturday is that I wasn't able to take pup out for a good walk, but we were able to make up for it yesterday. We went to a nearby park and saw quite a few branches that had fallen to the ground. There was also a small lake where there hadn't been one the day before. Zoe went right into it and drank from it as well.

On Saturday evening, I went with a friend to Famous Dave's. That stuff really hit the spot while the weather perfectly suited my mellow mood. It could be overcast for the next week and I wouldn't complain one bit.

Oh, Famous Dave's is good. I don't normally like BBQ but I could eat there all day.

We've been having the same weather yesterday and today. I kept wanting to curl up somewhere and go to sleep yesterday because of it, but couldn't because I was at work.

I love fall, it's the best time of year by far.

No, no, no! It's only August! No Fall allowed yet! This is Minnesota, we have 20 months of winter. Let's enjoy our 3 days of summer while they're here! Overcast for a week? I can't stand it!!!
