Yesterday was the first day that we have seen the sun for nearly three weeks.  We have had rain, drizzle, overcast and damp for a very, very long time.  

But yesterday – yesterday! – the sun started peeking through the clouds and I counted four times that it peeked out until about four and STAYED out!   We even had blue sky and a sunset last night.

And today we had an actual sunrise and it is BRIGHT and sunny out with a south breeze. 

This should dry up the fields – the poor farmers have not been able to harvest the soy beans or the corn as they couldn’t even get INTO the fields because of muddy ground and the crops have been to wet to harvest, anyway.

On another note, my brother, Charles, is here – he arrived about the same time as the sun.  Candy and Wayne came over for supper – the boys played cribbage while Candy and I sat soaking up sunshine from the west window and knit (and talked).  Then another game of cribbage after spaghetti (Wayne’s favorite meal) while Candy and I knit and talked again.

Norm and Charles are going over to watch the Vikings game with Wayne this afternoon and I might go over to play with Candy or may stay home and do some weaving while they are gone.  I haven’t decided that, yet.

It is a beautiful beginning of a hopefully beautiful sunny week.  And it is a beautiful day today – you have a beautiful day.

So glad you've had some sunshine! It has been pretty dreary here, too, although not for that long!

Hasn't this been the dreariest fall ever? We had sun for Sunday and Monday, after a couple of weeks of clouds, rain, now the forcast is for the next 7 days of clouds, rain and more rain! Ugh!
