Happy Rainy Thursday!

Happy Rainy Thursday…

What a rainy Thursday we are having here in western Oregon!

Yes, for the most part we Oregonians don’t mind it, and we typically welcome the cleansing of the atmosphere, the wonderful sound of the rain on the rooftop, and the glorious sweet smell the rain leaves behind.

But with this down pour I’ve been experiencing internet technical difficulties. Not great news for a blogger.

 

 

 

So, enjoy your rainy Thursday. I am determined to get more posted soon in between inconsistent losses of internet connections.

 

 

Hugs to you all! ♥

 

Happy Friday The 13th!!!

Hello wonderful readers & Happy Friday the 13th!!!

Today we finally have a little bit of quiet from the thunder and rain storm last night. Storms like that don’t bother me at all. In fact, I find it quite calming when we have tucked the little ones into bed, have the cozy fire going in the wood stove and can hear the rolling thunder and rain rapping on the roof. Such a unique sound and feeling. The power of the storm is so close, but being inside in the evening fall warmth is just so soothing.

But, alas, the storm has passed and we are left with just a grey, foggy, slightly rainy Oregon day. The rain shows no sign of actually coming to an end. A perfect setting for Friday the 13th.

Some folks dread this day no matter what month it falls in, but October seems to have an even more haunting gloom for them. Is it because this is the month of All Hallows Eve? Do they feel an extra sense of doom from lingering spirits? Or are they just so superstitious of all things related to old wives tales and myths that they freak themselves out by the very mention of the day? Or are they a simple skeptic, and feel everything surrounding Friday the 13th is plain ridiculous?

I, for one, enjoy Friday the 13th. I have always found it to be a pleasant day and I have a few friends that actually celebrate their births on this day. So, happy birthday to them, and hope you all enjoy your Friday the 13th! Watch out for black cats and ladders 😊

Do you enjoy Friday the 13th? What superstitions do you have?
