Thankfully today sees the end of all the many phone calls and glossy flyers in the mail and cranky television advertisements. Yes, Election Day. Where citizens march to their polling places really just to end all the madness of political campaigns. And to clean up the landscape of millions of "vote for me" signs and placards. Deliver me from politicians.
On a positive note, the weather is beautiful. On the other hand, snow is in the forecast for later in the week.
It seems the main business of the day for the animals in our house: guarding against squirrels. The cats are twitching tails and doing that "chatter-cat" sound. Staring through the patio doors for long periods of time. At least it keeps them busy. Gwennie, Shetland Sheepdog is serious about her job. She guards the birdfeeders with a passion. No sheep to herd, she transfers that skill into herding squirrels, lol! And still, the squirrels return, time after time.
So, on to the day....may yours be smooth and squirrel-free (and politician-free).
p.s. I did vote this morning and nary a candidate's smiling teeth in sight.
