While all the rest of the state of Texas is sweltering under oppressive temperatures, I am reaching for a blanket to snuggle under here at the Sheehan house. A gentle rain is falling and a cool breeze is gently wafting through the house. The temperature sits at a nearly chilly 69°. The thunder rumbles loudly ringing Fall with a BANG! Over an inch of rain has fallen and the draw beside the house is running. The waterfall beside the bridge is running as well and the sound is heavenly. It maybe time to get in the kitchen and make a batch of Ginger Snaps to complete the full feel of Fall. The joys of living in the “Alps” of Texas.
