At this moment, this post has no title – I’m hoping I’ll remember to give it one before I publish, but at this moment, I have no idea what I’m going to say. I only know I want to say. Something.
It is fall, and fall makes me happy. I want fall to last for a long time – like maybe until January? Dreams are good.
I mowed my lawn yesterday. It should have been done at least a week before I did it, but at least it’s done now. Today I cut off some little trees that were starting to grow in places where they were not welcome. There is a small cluster of some kind of bush or tree growing at the end of my driveway pullout, I have no idea what it is but am pretty sure I can attribute its presence to the birds. I have to decide whether to let it stay or send it away.
This past weekend I met my daughter and her fiancé at a halfway point between my house and hers. He had a volleyball tournament to referee, we took the time to have lunch – at a brewery because that’s our thing – then wander through some stores being lookee -loos. At least I just looked, she bought a few small things, including some items for an activity for her fifth grade class. That evening the three of us had a delicious Indian dinner.
The news – oh my, the news. Every time I think our government can sink no lower, it manages to do it. I’m pretty sure I’ve said this before. Whether Trump’s call to the Ukrainian president was a crime or not, it was most certainly not presidential, and behavior not to be looked up to. Yet I know the Republicans will continue to back him, because they fear if they do not, they’ll lose the support of his Republican supporters, and possibly their jobs. Selling out their souls for a chance for power and wealth. I have no doubt his supporters will continue to support him, calling this another witch hunt and denying any truth to the allegations – because theirs is an alternate truth and their facts are alternate facts. It continues to amaze me how many of his transgressions they are willing to overlook.
On a more cheery note, in just over a week I will be leaving on a jet plane – but I do know when I’ll be back again. I am going to visit a very dear friend in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I’m looking forward to it. Santa Fe is a wonderful place to visit, and she is a wonderful hostess not to mention friend.
I need to buy some groceries – but it’s a balancing act when you have a trip planned not to end up with too many perishable items in the refrigerator. Which means this shopping trip should consist more of frozen vegetables than fresh. Which I would end up freezing anyway.
Can you tell how exciting my life is? It is actually much to my liking. Two of my friends and I did go see the movie Downton Abbey the other day, which I loved, then went out for dinner. A nice girls’ afternoon out.
Don’t you think fall just has a really nice feel to the air? Have I mentioned I’d like it to last a long long time? Of course I have. I just wanted you to know I really mean it.
