"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

a little Friday randomness...



...no photos to share today, don't know if it's my computer or blogger but...

I have been having some of my comments kicked back to me as undeliverable.  I don't really understand why as I can see them on your blogs but I keep getting these messages in my inbox, 'mail system failure.'   So even if you don't see them I AM commenting...interesting concept eh?

I had a completely different post ready to go today, a soap box post, and then the tragedies of the last few days hit me hard and I felt I should wait.  It's not a hateful post but it is something that doesn't need to be out in the world at this moment.

At this moment we need some peace, Peace in our hearts, Peace in our lives, Peace in our souls.  We have let down our children in so many ways and they are hurting so badly that violence seems to be their only way out.   This has to stop.    We must find a way.

And for those who simply want to eliminate all that is good--I have no words.  You will not tear us down, we are strong and we, the US, will stand with our neighbors to bring you down.

It is Autumn here, beautiful and colourful for just a few more days.  Let's go out and enjoy it in safety and peace.  Let us be the start...

a different view of the pumpkin patch...















I'm glad they detour the kids around the 'dark' side!

It's quite warm here, near 70, but it's blustery, rainy, dark, and the leaves are falling at a rapid pace.  Time to sweep out the storm drains before we get a flood.  It is officially Fall here.  You know that because you can't go out in the yard without some sort of 'poop' radar due to all the fallen leaves.  It's a real mine field!   Happy, happy y'all.
