Finally we have a temporary resolution of the government shutdown. One of my friends has been paying her daughter's mortgage since she works for the TSA. She is glad that she is able to do that, yet so sorry for those who do not have that backup. Our national forests and parks are open. We've had some rain and now expecting sunshine. So life is good.
I do wish our leaders in government could work together like our two Golden Girls. They are often in tandem.
Together they look at something (real or imagined) below the deck.
And they are always together for an after-walk treat.
One of them saw something on the deck so both must investigate.
They wait together for my husband to get up.
It's dinnertime and my husband put his book aside.
We have some color although I don't think it's going to be as splendid as in years past. But it is gorgeous enough. We don't have to go far...just look out the windows into the woods. Or, go out the front door and walk to the street.
Autumn comes to our street.
I won't be posting for a couple of weeks. We're having a special guest who loves these mountains as much as we do. So we will be hitting the road, following the color and the roads wherever they lead us.
Once again our quote is from Marcus Aurelius:
"Accept the thing to which fate binds you and love the people whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart."
In the midst of this divisive nation, let's be accepting and loving. With all our hearts.
HAVE A SAFE AND WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE!!!
