The beautiful leaves were much too wet to be swept away and who would want to anyway? I rather like the way the decorate the wood deck! Plenty of time for that once the rain dries them.
It was a morning to sit and gaze out the window, daydream, pet the dogs, check on the cats, get a second cup of coffee and try not to become too involved with life's challenges, not today.
How about a day of reflection and regrouping? A day of giving thanks for our blessings? To remember and honor our Veterans? To send our prayers and assistance to those on the East Coast still struggling with the challenges of daily living?
I won't let the rain depress me. I, and we, have too much to be grateful for. And I'll try to get the first verse of this song off my brain!
