Our house sits on top of a hill and the backyard slopes down to a little creek below. It is a cool spot in summer and a fun place for Lucy to explore. She especially likes it when the Autumn leaves have fallen. She and Ellie use to chase each other around and around the laurel thicket there.
Like many areas of the mountains, our Autumn color was muted this year with many leaves turning a little yellow and then all brown. Strong winds have made many trees bare already.
Lucy sniffs her way up the stone path
Lucy at a forced sit and not at all happy about it.
You might make me sit but I'm not looking at the camera.
And I'm not going to smile.
Yes, we have chairs in the woods and tables and benches made from logs
It's very dry here and our little creek is barely a trickle
Don't some of your trees have faces?
There seems to be a massive sense of unease throughout our country. I do hope that will subside after the election.
Many people around our planet are troubled and in pain. From Nature's wrath and the most evil of our fellow humans. Bombs are deliberately aimed at schools and hospitals in war-torn areas. So when we ask for peace, let's be sure to remember all of those who are suffering.
This week's quote is from Martin Luther King, Jr.:
“Peace is not merely a distant goal we seek,
But a means by which we arrive at that goal”
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE!
