Enjoy Your Weekend

Although dawn today began with a beautiful sunrise, clouds have since come in en mass to thickly blanket the area and a substantial amount of rain has been predicted for the next 36 hours or so.  One of the joys of home ownership are the routine upkeep chores, many of which have been haphazardly added to the stack of things in the "Out of Sight, Out of Mind" basket.

One of those (for me, anyway) has been checking the rain gutters for debris, and while I'm glad there are a lot of trees near the house. . . well, you know.  I suppose I'd rather be up a ladder for a while than up a creek with water damage in the attic, so there goes a couple of hours I hadn't budgeted for, and that's my writing time this morning.

Add to that, today is my best friend's birthday, so in addition to my fairly full schedule for today I'll be baking a pineapple upside-down cake and preparing dinner for him and a few other good friends.

My friend's birthday cake from last year

I hope your weekend goes smoothly and that you have some time to relax and have fun, too.  As time goes by that connection with family and friends becomes more important, so make the best of it!

See you back here on Monday.

The sunset photo reminds me of The House of Sand and Fog.

I really enjoyed that movie. The sunrise was from the front porch. I saw it and went back in and picked up the camera.
