Did it storm at your house last night? We had really strong winds, lots of lightning and rain. My house is pretty old and when the wind hits it a certain way it whistles and moans and makes all those sounds of a ‘haunted house’. It reminded me of the time that my youngest daughter was young and wanted to have a haunted house at Halloween and invite some of her friends for a party. We decorated the upstairs, which her friends always thought was creepy, and had a party. They had a great time. That was at a time when kids didn’t have all the things they have now and they were amused and entertained by simpler things. Those were the days.
When I got up this morning I was happy to see that the winds hadn’t blown all the leaves off the trees. I always feel sorry for the trees when that happens because one day they are standing there in all their radiance and the next they are practically naked. It was a good night for watching movies. I watched two really good ones, “The Way” and “The Lucky One”. I had never heard of “The Way” with Martin Sheen but, I am glad I watched it. It was directed and produced by his son, Emilio Estevez. If you get a chance watch it.
Everything looked so clean and washed this morning. The sun is bright and makes the leaves on the trees glisten as they move. It is a cool morning, just right for a cup of something hot and my choice is coffee. It sounds like it is going to be a spectacular day so, make a plan to do something to match it. Remember: Stop only when there is nothing to do. Melanie
