In the wake of the most...shall I say, INTERESTING...election in history - most of the country is still reeling over the results.
Yesterday was quite the day.
I'm glad the election is in the past, but I'm afraid for our future.
Meanwhile, on our little mountain top, life goes on.
What choice do we have?
All the leaves are gone from our trees. I can see straight through the woods, watch all the critters scampering about in the carpet of leaves.
The birdbath was frozen solid this morning - poor little birdies. But the sun will warm it throughout the day, giving them enough water to take a drink.
The suet hanging outside the kitchen window has been a most popular dining spot - I bought a double suet holder to replace the single one, which will keep me from having to fill it as often.
Indoors, the morning sun shines through the windows, making both the plants and me ever so happy.
The evenings are long now, with darkness falling before I even get home from work. The lit twigs on the top of the china cabinet in the dining room mingle with the glow of candle light throughout my cozy house. Lamps are lit, illuminating dark corners and bringing warm ambiance to a cold night.
And the little monkey spends as much time as possible curled up in front of the fire.
Life goes on....and life is good.
