Monday Musings

Happy Monday, everyone! It was uncharacteristically foggy and very humid yesterday morning. Autumn continues to play peek-a-boo in the Mile High with chilly mornings and evenings but still reaching the low 80’s by afternoon. Here it is almost the first of November and we haven’t had any snow yet…which seems quite un-nerving. It’s beginning to shape up as a La Niña year which will mean colder than average and less precipitation than average for our part of the country which could pose problems for next summer. *Sigh*

Hopefully you had a good weekend. Some of the teams I follow clearly are trying to make life personally unpleasant for me as a fan. Oh well…there’s always next week, right? What was your weekend highlight?

Have a safe and happy ‘Howliween.’

Live, love, bark! <3

  1. This reminds me of a story I need to share on the blog. It’s about my resident leaf chaser and the leaf that wasn’t a leaf. 🙂

  2. Sun was out but still on the cool side. We walked through the gardens and then on to the Foreshore and the beach and the wind coming off the water was too cool, so we went back to the gardens. All up – a quiet weekend with the dogs and the family.

  3. The weather has been the same here in Chattanooga – cool nights with mid-80 days. Breaking all sorts of records. Even with the nights not getting as cool this past week, we have been determined to use overhead fans instead of the A/C after the last electric bill pushing $300. Happy Howl-o-ween!

  4. We’ve had a very dry late summer/early fall this year. Not good for the grass, trees, etc., but good for spending time in the yard with the girls. As for our teams? Clemson won, and the Falcons eeked out a 37-34 win over Green Bay; but our Carolina Panthers lost. 2 out of 3 not bad I guess.

  5. Hey sweet friends. Our weekend was kind of quiet. Mom is sick and we are all trying to take care of her. Funny how the house doesn’t run without the mommy. XOXO – Bacon

      1. Thanks sweet friend. We have been snuggling with her all day. She looks half way human right now. That’s not saying much. XOXO – Bacon

  6. Well, our weekend was halfway good: our favourite football team [the Longhorns] won, but my favourite German soccer team [Borussia Dortmund] only had a tie. so it was a tad mixed. But it was VERY relaxing, and that’s the main point.
    Have a great week,
    Pit

      1. Well, if you CAN relax, that is. Relaxing is difficult when your favourite team is playing badly, isn’t it?

  7. My boy is depressed on this early Monday morning. Had sis and fam visiting from Northern Virginia for a couple of days. More running after the ball than usual with an 8 year-old providing loads of entertainment. Now the house is empty….just me and the pooch as Rocket-man is away on travel. The Poodle is sulking and I’m missing my family. On the upside though, I’ve got a bowl of candy treats waiting by the door. A Snickers Bar (mini one, of course) puts a smile on my face. I haven’t had one since LAST Halloween. Happy Monday.

    1. The problem with mini Snickers is they’re so small & like Lays potato chips-you can’t just eat one! Bet the goblins and ghoulies love coming to your house. Happy Howliween as you re-enter the normal routine. 🎃
