That's why we worked so hard all week.
Today the rains came. This is November rain, cold and steady.
It will take the leaves down quickly now. We'll be cleaning up until after Thanksgiving.
No more patio sitting now for many months.
But there is still plenty to do. Today we went to breakfast with our Friday morning group. Back at home we cleaned house and did laundry. Then I went shopping.
Ooops. While I knew it was Veterans Day, I forgot to remember that lots of folks had the day off. After all, when you are retired, every day is a holiday, right? I went to Jo Anns for fabric to make a Thanksgiving table cloth. I had to wait a half hour to get my fabric cut.
I got back home about 1:30, had lunch, and then I was off to the neighborhood Safeway for some groceries. Ooops. People everywhere! I finally got back home and then I was late getting my beef stew started. That done and into the oven, I finished putting groceries away. At 4:00 I was finally done with that, and was left wondering where the day had gone!
The rain let up enough to let some late sun light up the clouds. Now at 4:40 darkness is setting in.
It being Veterans Day and all, it makes me think of "Taps".
Day is done, gone the sun
From the lakes, from the hills, from the sky.
All is well, safely rest.
God is nigh.
I can only hope that our veterans, retired and active duty, are safely resting tonight. Thank you for your service.
