Years ago I enjoyed "The Far Side" comics in the daily paper. Some days they went right over my head, I just didn't get the joke. Many of them made me laugh ( or groan), because they seemed so silly. Looking back at them now, they still make me smile.

Have a good week everyone!

A New Song For The New Week

Do you ever hear a song that just blows you away? I did yesterday and I haven't been able to get it out of my head. It's Ben Platt's version of River, Joni Mitchell's song.

A little back story: The song was sung by Platt, who is a Tony award-winning actor, singer, and songwriter, on the new Netflix series called The Politician. His character performs it at the memorial ceremony for his good friend, River.

What songs have stuck with you lately?

Hello weekend!

Another Friday has come around again. Fall is definitely in the air in the Midwest, and it feels very nice and cool right now. We are in the very small window of time where neither air conditioning nor heat is needed. It won't last long, the nights are already getting chilly. My garden is still producing hot and sweet peppers, which is a much longer growing season than usual. I picked my remaining green tomatoes a couple of days ago, and I hope they ripen in the house. It was a good year for tomatoes as well.

I love autumn even though it leads into winter. There is just something about the cool sunny days, and the colorful trees. The crunching of leaves during a walk with Duncan is one of my favorite sounds. The actual raking of leaves is a different story, but I guess it is good exercise 😉 The smell of bonfires and thoughts of chili and other comfort foods is also appealing. The house smells so good with something simmering all day!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Back to reality

Happy Monday! I am back from my much anticipated vacation. It was a beautiful hot sunny week in Florida. I was sad to see it end, but feel energized by the time away. Here are a few pictures..

Traveling through Alabama, it was very buggy.

This was taken out the window seconds after we enter our condo. So pretty.

The sunsets were amazing each and every day.

        This may be my favorite sunset picture, two strangers on the beach, and I captured their selfie.

For a change of pace, we enjoyed the beautiful pool when we were tired of salt water.

We had to eat and drink of course.

At the restaurant we saw an alligator or two..

Then one final sunset...

Homeward bound.

This guy said, finally!!!

Have a wonderful week everyone!
