This week here in the NC mountains the weather belies the calendar. We have had above normal temperatures and sunny weather. Warm enough to be outside with only a light jacket or sweatshirt. While we have definitely enjoyed the respite, we are ready for normal winter weather. And that does appear to be what we will expect over the weekend.
Lucy has enjoyed the sunny weather but I think she would prefer that it be a bit colder. She is always comfortable in the house, usually on the dog bed near my husband's chair. Sometimes she slides her head underneath the chair. I have no idea why.
Wonder if she thinks she is hiding
She pays little attention to me as if she really wants to be left alone.
The quote today comes from Albert Einstein
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space.
He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.
This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.
Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
Wouldn't it be wonderful indeed if we could embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature? At least we can try.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE
