What do we do now?........

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.......   

I hope all of you have a great week, in spite of the challenges.
Love, 365


  1. Fall is my favorite season as well. But this whole year is my least favorite of my lifetime and my mom died when I was 13 - so that's saying a lot.

    1. So many reasons to dislike this year ~ ok, hate this year with a passion usually reserved for politics....

  2. I'm with Peggy. Worst year in my 57 years on the planet and, admittedly, I have it much better than most.

    1. Well said, I know I have it so much better than so many, but I believe we can all come together on this one admittedly teeny tiny point. Otherwise, I've never seen so much turmoil.

  3. In Idaho, we have been impacted a little bit by the fires from all of the smoke but we got a little bit of a break today as it rained. I hope that helps out as it's bad enough dealing with COVID-19 but now we can't even go outside. The first two memes were quite funny. Thank you.


Fall came and then went on vacation ......

  We went hiking last Monday ~ this is one of the photos I took (probably the best one).  Off in the distance is the Kiwanis cabin built by ...
