A Few Torrential Rain Showers Made For A Lazy Sunday

It is the time of the year when mornings are getting increasingly dark and dull. I have a hard time to realize that it is 7am, I’m awake and yet it is dark outside. Of course, the other night we had a bright moon. I grabbed the NIKON and tried to shoot a pic out the front window looking across the Passamaquoddy Bay capturing the reflections of the moon, but the pic turned out unclear.

I am, in fact looking forward to getting back to Standard Time on November 03.
Interestingly, Europe does the change back to Winter Time on October 27 – a week earlier than North America. What would that be good for?

Well, besides of getting dark mornings we are also getting some rain. Torrential rainfalls made me stay in my IKEA chair this morning, while Bea went to the old Anglican Church. I am not a guy who can stay put for extended periods of time. So in the afternoon I strode off into the kitchen to make a German Apfel Streuselkuchen.  And I am somewhat proud to say it turned out to be a GREAT cake, even though it was my very first Streuselkuchen. We had it with whipped cream and a good cup of coffee. I guess I will never be without this German afternoon coffee thing.

We did our daily walk with Molly after the sun peeked out, but overall it was a rather lazy Sunday.

Thanks for dropping by!


  1. Nothing wrong with a lazy Sunday with some really good looking struesel something.

  2. Looks good your "Apfelstreuselkuchen". We are looking at american traveller every day. Holtville must be opened now. Have a good trip!

  3. Sounds like a perfect sunday for this time of year. Enjoy!
