After two gorgeous, sunny high 60's days, we are back to the chilly gray drizzly ones. But it's November so what can one expect?
The leaves are all off the trees and have turned into dried brown skittering-along-the-street things. All day long yesterday the streets were in constant motion with hundreds of dried-up leaves dashing off to parts unknown. It was an interesting sound.
So much going on in the news these last few days, and on the blogs. I am disgusted at the Petraeus situation, concerned and shocked about the lack of progress being made in NY and NJ with post-Hurricane Sandy problems. I like to keep abreast of current events, but it is difficult at times, to not become obsessed with certain situations.
Unfortunately, some of the blogs I have been following are suffering from negative situations; death, both people and beloved pets, jobs lost, ill-health and other life upsets. One leaves sympathetic comments, but that never seems enough. Makes you feel helpless.
I realize that Mercury is in retrograde and these circumstances crop up a lot more during this time. We just must redouble our efforts to send out as much positive energy as possible.
On the homefront, my husband is away on business for a week, my brother has medical tests and appointments, and the kittens are having their spay/neuter surgeries this week. The good news is Thanksgiving is just around the corner and my daughter and her husband will be able to join us this year to observe the feast with us. Now that makes me smile!!
Sending out good wishes for calm, non-eventful days!
