Remember the old television show, "That Was The Week That Was"? The theme song keeps running through my head..."That was the week that was; it's over...let it go."
The week began with non-stop election predictions, rants and raves. Our phone "blipped" constantly to alert us of callers whom we had blocked trying to reach us again and again to request our votes or to ask us to respond to surveys. The mute button on the television was in constant use as we avoided the political advertisements. We anticipated and feared the election results, sitting on the edges of our seats for quite a while on Tuesday night. Thank goodness we are retired and didn't have to go to work Wednesday morning.
The week brought us miserable weather. Our temperatures were thirty degrees below our normal highs. The days were gray, misty and foggy.
And now the election is over and we no longer have to hate the ringing of our own telephone. I even changed the ring tones so I could forget the nuisance calls. And the weather is sunny and bright, with temperatures around normal for us.
The Golden Girls don't seem to mind the gray days as long as it doesn't rain. But they do love the sunshine and seek out sunny spots to snooze during the day.
Ellie soaks up the sun.
Lucy is in full sun with Ellie's tennis ball at her side.
Inevitably they will share a bed.
And just as inevitably Lucy will find a soft pillow.
The quote for the week is from my favorite First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt:
"I think if the people of this country can be reached with the truth, their judgment will be in favor of the many, as against the privileged few."
Our thoughts remain with those in harm's way. It seems so unfair for those already suffering to have to face cold and snow and more power outages. Please do whatever you can to help them.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE!!!
