What is it about grey weather? The kind that has a high clouds obscuring the sun, preventing it from sending it’s warming, soothing rays to us. This type of sky seems to carry with it a sense of silence that is somehow comforting. I have been sitting here today enjoying the coolness of this unusual day. When I noticed that everyone in the neighborhood must be feeling the same way. The kids across the street, normally quite boisterous in their playful antics, not always appreciated, have been calmly going about their play. The partiers down the street, normally playing their music loudly, and having a number of people coming and going, are quiet.
That’s all right, I’ll take the peace and quiet as often as I can get it. I didn’t get to go hunting this weekend for reasons beyond my control. Now that makes two weekends in a row that I missed the simple pleasures of nature and solitude. I guess someone felt sorry for me today, and is letting me enjoy myself without having to go elsewhere. It’s not often we get to enjoy the peace and quiet of a Sunday so I’m making the best of it.
I have warmed up the charcoal grill, and started some baked potato's. I prepared my famous, at least to me, steak marinade, and have had two huge venison steaks marinating for the last 3 hours. We have been listening to old country music all mourning, and really just having a wonderful day. There is something nice about old country music and a charcoal grilled meal that just seems to make the day worth while.
I have been pretty bad about posting last week, I have no excuse, just nothing to say. Hopefully that will change for this week, and I’ll get some fun stories out. For now enjoy some of the music I have been listening to.
