Welcome to the Weekend Coffee Share, there’s rain on my window and freshly made dark, black coffee in the French press. This coffee is pure black gold, it has a deep, sinful, almost smoky flavour. Please join me for a cup of coffee, and a conversation.
I just got back inside after a long walk with my daughter. We made it back inside before the rain started. It’s windy and grey outside, some of the clouds are nearly black. We went out looking for fall colours. It’s still pretty green everywhere, but fall and cooler temps are here. We see a little more yellow and red colours every day.
I LOVE this time of the year. It makes me feel so alive. One rainy day earlier this week my daughter and I jumped in rain puddles, while it was raining, until we were soaking wet, and bursting with laughter from deep inside. If I could I would share some rain with my friends in California, and Oregon. Those fire are so scary. I’m grateful to be out of there, but I think about my friends (two and four legged) all the time. Its like fire season is getting worse every year.
This week have also given us some really beautiful sunny days here, a great mix, lots of fun for the kids.
How is your week? What have you been up to?
The rain and wind is increasing in power outside right now. I put several big bottles of drinking water in the fridge this morning, in case we’re having a power outage later…I actually need to run outside, it is hailing now!
I think there will be some reading, maybe a movie or two, and some baking this weekend. Do you have any fun plans?
I’ll leave you with this last photo from our walk, Rowan Berry trees are beautiful, and I love making jam out of the berries, mixed with apples. Pancakes with rowanberry-apple jam is a taste straight from my childhood. Have a fabulous weekend!
