Ellie glares at me with evil eyes.
She really looks vicious here, but in reality I caught her in mid-yawn.
Little angel Lucy is snoozing in comfort.
She is not at all interested in me or my camera.
I couldn't leave you with an evil picture of Ellie. This is more like her, although she still wants me to play.
We are definitely changing seasons here. Cold and frosty mornings greet us and the sun takes its own good time rising over the mountains. When we lived in Wisconsin, I dreaded the November mornings. I didn't mind the cold and snow, the worst of it was the long number of gray days. Here, we don't worry about a dreary day or two because we know the sun will be bright before long.
The following phrase is carved on one of our tables. I don't know the origin, but it is one of my favorites:
The secret to life is to enjoy the passage of time.
How true that is. Far too often we lament the passage of time. Our children grow up, the seasons change and we get older. For some reason we always regret time's passing. Instead we should embrace and enjoy it.
So enjoy the passage of time as we move back to Standard Time this weekend. Think of those who are less fortunate than we are and don't get caught up in your own misery. Enjoy the passage of time.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE
