We are on the cusp of my favorite season of the year. Yeah, I'm a fall junkie. I love fall colors, fall food (pumpkin pie, apple pie, roasted chicken ~ everything we don't usually cook during the hot summer months). Some of the most beautiful landscape paintings or photos are painted/taken during the fall.
Fall is also the season of flu, colds and other crappy illnesses. Romeo bugged me relentlessly to get my flue shot, even though I thought it was a little early, which I did get last weekend. Not that I am expecting it to help with Covid, of course. With Covid on the scene, and cases starting to rise again (see above) and in France, we all know this is not over. Not by a long shot. 😕
The West coast is still burning. I feel so sorry for all of those that have lost their lives, their homes and possessions, their pets. So much gone. There have been Facebook sunset/sunrise photos in New Mexico that have tragically been more colorful (and beautiful) because of all the smoke in the air. I certainly hope that the fires are put out soon. And I think we should all pray for those firefighters who's lives are on the line trying to protect lives and property.
Sadly, there is enough bad news, I could fill this post with it and it would end up being the longest post ever. It's not easy to try to maintain a positive attitude these days. We don't want to bury our heads in the sand, but at the same time we don't want to walk around with a black cloud over our heads day in and day out. I will respond with silliness.......
