When I got out of bed this morning I came into the living room and ventured a look outside the window. What I saw started to depress me but then I stopped. It was another rainy day, sure, but the reason I decided not to let it get me down was the fact that when I opened up the living room door to see if it was a cold day I was startled to find that it was very warm.
The grass is still green, albeit there are no longer any leaves left on the trees in my yard or down the side of the street where I live. That is to be expected at this time of year. I am one of the lucky people who live on a street that you don’t have to bag up your leaves in the yard. We have people who are hired to do the yard work. I rent my small apartment and that is one of the things that I love about living in this neighborhood. It not only looks pretty but the persons who live here keep up the yard work on a regular basis during the summer and the fall seasons.
I just couldn’t believe my eyes when I chanced a look over to the right side of my porch railing. The rose bush still has the one bloom on it. By tonight when the temperature drops it will no longer be alive in the morning. That makes me sad but also leaves me with the knowledge that once spring arrives next year it will again be putting forth many beautiful red roses again.
On Fridays I call my granddaughter Kristi Jayne and we talk for a long time. She is in the 4th grade and she simply loves to tell me all about what has transpired during the week of school. Who she has made friends with and what they are doing in their classroom plus who she has a crush on. I simply told her that she is much to young to have a crush on any boy at this time. But she laughed and told me that the boy she liked didn’t know that she liked him. I told her that was quite alright. And her usual response to that statement from me was a simple “Oh Grandma!”.
Love her dearly, I do, but she is growing up so fast now. She will be coming to stay the weekend with me the day after Thanksgiving. She will be with me for 3 days and nights and then she will be going back home to start school again on the following Monday. Time flies by so quickly these days I noticed. Maybe it happens like that when people grow older, like me, but then again maybe it is just how one looks at life as it goes on each and every day.
I am still reading blogs as I search online. I love reading all of them each and everyday. It keeps me busy and I enjoy doing so. It seems that I haven’t anything interesting to really talk about today. I think I just love writing on my blog page. Just saying anything that comes to my mind. How about all of you out there? What are a lot of you planning on doing over the Thanksgiving holiday. I imagine you will all be going to see family members and traveling long distances in order to do so. If all of you are planning on taking trips remember to be careful when doing so.
This time of year is a busy one in the way of traveling back and forth to our destinations. We all have to think of being safe when we do so. Much in this world is changing and it has become in some regions a dangerous place to live and to travel to.
The tragedy in Paris, France has made me realize that our world needs peace. Why can’t countries get along with each other. Why must there be so many wars in this world. I am praying for world peace everyday and I hope that it happens soon. I am praying for everyone and the young men and women who are overseas in other war torn countries to come home soon and be reunited with their families.
I am going to stop writing here right now and will be back again to write more tomorrow. Until then everybody stay safe and healthy.
Keep blogging everyone.
See you later,
