I am time-management challenged. This week, that resulted in two all-nighters, one on Sunday and one on Tuesday. At 61, I pay a greater price for the lost sleep than used to be the case. Sadly, it also meant that I missed the live version of Obama's speech. Nevertheless, I felt the energy, as Obamania traveled the world. Interesting, this capacity and need humans have to raise one above the others, and then begin looking for reasons to enjoy their descent. The quote below is on the wall at The Foundation. I snapped it Sunday evening, while we watched the kitchen staff work efficiently and harmoniously to prepare our delicious meal. A well-coordinated dance is the way Bill described their performance. The quote seems to connect to my thoughts about Obama, and my hope that we can let him get on with the job I think he is well-equipped to do. I like to think his election indicates a shift in the direction of enlightenment.
We both forgot the time change until an hour or so after we woke up on Sunday. It was lovely to have an extra hour dropped into the day. Here, Black Jack checks out the polls (well, actually the movies), while Bill sets his watch back. We finally chose Happy Go Lucky, and as Bill said, "It had its charms."
Each time I post Autumn pictures, I think they'll be the last for this season. I've been wrong twice. This one was taken on Sunday, through the truck window, as we drove along tenth.
Bill mentioned this yellow blanket on Saturday. It seemed still untouched on Sunday.
Golden decorations, almost star-like.
I like the details in this one close up.
This squirrel raced across Black Jack's path and took a flying leap for the tree, as she lunged forward. Secure on the highest branch, it taunted her. I didn't succeed in capturing the branch shot, but had fun trying.
Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work I go. In the rain:)
