BLAH WEEKEND SO FAR


It's been a strange weekend for the weather.  These two radar images were from early Friday morning...at midnight it was pouring...and at 7am it was pouring.  And it rained all day.

We ended up with almost 3 inches of rain.  It also went from almost 80 degrees for a high into the 40's.  Today is gray and overcast and damp and cold.  Ever have one of those days where you just don't feel like doing anything?  Today is one of those days.  To top it off, we're both are seemingly getting our colds bouncing back.  Could just be allergies but we're both stuffy and have the occasional cough, and just generally feel 'blah'.  So no farm today...with Christmas coming, we don't want to overdo and make ourselves sicker.


Time for a little cookies and ice cream, am I right?

1st Man,

The weather is the same here. Expecting our daughter and her boyfriend in an hour or so from Dallas.
Hey ................um.............this is a stick up hand over all your cookies and ice cream!!!!

DFW said...

And whip cream & fudge sauce, oh my! Sounds like a good day to stay indoors.

MaryJo said...

Definitely! Especially on those "down days".
I think the lead up to Christmas can be very draining.
We are looking at 35degC today which is not good for cooking.
Hey ho!

We had the most horrible weather here a couple of weeks ago. The skies dumped over 300 mms in 48 hours. Massive flooding everywhere. Of course now, the garden and the grass is going crazy. As for your cold I was going to such loads of garlic, but I can see your idea is loads better. LOL.

YOU would have to post that picture of cookies and ice cream and I have none in the house. The weather is nasty here in coastal NC today too. Cold, rainy, and wet and I don't feel like leaving the house to go get any. You are a bad, bad, boy today!!! (…but I do have wine!!) Hope you two are feeling better soon. Ice cream is always a good cure if you are feeling poorly!!

FionaG said...

lets try 'suggest' loads of garlic. Hate typos!

Kelly n Victor said...

Hope you feel better. Ice cream makes everything better, haha.

Joani said...

I think I'd rather have chicken soup with lots of garlic and onions. Oh, by the way, cut an onion in half and leave it out, supposedly it will absorb germs. Never know til you try. Merry Christmas.

i don't think i want to see another cookie for a year! hope you guys feel better soon!

Delores said...

Get over the blah's before Christmas.
That word verification thing is showing up on all kinds of blogs but you can just ignore it and your comment goes through anyway.

Solstice cookies?

Sarah said...

Feel better! Try some elderberry if you have some laying around! Also there's very little in life that cookies and ice cream can't make at least a bit better! :)

I absolutely hate those blah days where the sun never shines and everything is gray. I never do, but I have the feeling I could crawl under the covers and pull the covers over my head. Then, to be ill at the same time...ugh. But, cookies and ice cream can pull me through/

Texas Rose said...

I was so enjoying our warm days and then, boom, gray-days-winter decided to make an appearance. I warmed up the house with some Christmas baking. So, I’ll see your cookies and ice cream and raise you some apple strudels!

Sorry about your colds returning - get out the lemons and honey (and a bit of brandy!). Sending get-well-for-Christmas wishes!

This weather is so depressing, ha. Ice cream and cookies always makes things better. I'd give them up, but, um, they are gone! :-)

1st Man said...

Oh yeah, that too. :-)

1st Man said...

You know, the whole Christmas preparation thing is very draining too huh?

Thanks!

1st Man said...

You know the funny thing? I read it as suggest anyway, ha. I had to google how many inches that is. WOW! That's definitely flooding rain. We had a dish with lots of garlic tonight. No one may want to be around us but we'll feel better, ha.

1st Man said...

LOL! Hey, wine works too! Ice cream does take one back to their childhood huh? We are better, not 100% but better. Thank you!

1st Man said...

Oh it does doesn't it? Thanks!

1st Man said...

Hey, I love chicken soup and it's on the menu for tomorrow night dinner.

I've heard the onion story too. We might just try that, hey it can't hurt, right?

1st Man said...

I can imagine, I've been reading your blog. Cookies galore huh?

1st Man said...

And they have changed it too, it's just a checkmark sometimes. I'll have to check out the just click enter. Not sure what google is doing. Thanks, we definitely want to be over the blahs before Christmas.

1st Man said...

I like that!!!

1st Man said...

Ha, so true. Elderberry? I've never tried that, we don't have any but I am sure I could find some somewhere in this big city. Thanks!

1st Man said...

Isn't it depressing? Under the covers is always a feel good way to recover from the blahs but being sick aggravates it, ha.

1st Man said...

Weren't they nice? Not too hot, just nice and warm instead of cold and then it changed in an instant. Apple strudels would be great with ice cream, ha.

Got some honey and have some lemons. Thanks!!

Sarah said...

Here's a post I did last month that has 3 elderberry syrup recipes in it if you ever feel that adventurous!
