Election Day is tomorrow! If you haven't voted early or by mail, please go out and vote at the polls tomorrow! And please vote to bring balance back into our national government. Right now our country, like a ship, is listing to the right. We need to get some people to move, like ballast, to the left so our ship will not tip over and sink. And my friends, it is listing dangerously to one side now, into a country that I do not recognize nor trust. If we do not right it now, we might be seeing the fall of our nation as we knew it. So.. please please please do your patriotic duty and save our country.
My friend Diane stopped by to visit the other day and to gift me with some scones her son had baked. We chatted away and then I asked her if she'd play some songs on our piano. She is a fabulous player and I so enjoyed listening to several songs she performed. Diane and I were 4-H Dairy Goat leaders for 5 years with her 3 boys and my 3 kids. Some great memories. Yes, I need to tidy up my piano top.
We had to clear the living room out as I'd hired a carpet cleaner (I found on the Corbett Area group on Facebook!) to give the room a freshening up. All done, today we are putting things back in there.
While we were gone on our trip to the beach, Caleb did some drawing and proudly showed them all to me. I was especially amazed at this one. It's Harry Potter's glasses with castles and Hogwarts School reflected in the lens. Isn't that clever?
And then he pulled out his violin and played for us and again, I was amazed at how well he was playing!
While I was in the living room I snapped a current photo of the front yard, it is healing somewhat from the porch restoration project. But we still have too many moles making hills out there!
I can't remember which blogger was reading this and suggested it - and I LOVE IT!
And while I'm suggesting leisure time pursuits, we found this on cable the other evening and watched it and it was GREAT! You will learn more about why we were in the Vietnam war and why we stayed there so long.. and how 3 of our presidents made terrible decisions on it.. and this wonderful woman has a central role. The central issue of the movie is freedom of the press and how important it is to our country. I highly recommend this movie.
Oh, and did I tell you that I HOPE YOU VOTE?
And the name I have selected for the little white metal goat?
Gertie Rose!! Thank you all for your great suggestions!
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
