I took one last look at it before I put it away. I thought about the person I was back then and how I can be kinder to the person in my new passport because I cannot love anyone else well unless I love myself well.
I have never been so relieved to turn in a ballot, just to have the election process be over on my part. I do not care about the nightly updates. I can just read up on the ballot measures and local candidates who were running. As for the national candidates, like I said before, I’m just glad my part of this is over. From now on, if I see a politician who is actually serving the interests of his or her constituents, I will encourage that person in any way I can. I just do not want another campaign season or quality of candidates like I have seen this past year.
My youngest child had a field trip to one of the local pumpkin patches. I chaperoned. We went through a maze and saw the animals that live on the farm. It was as muddy as I remembered with my other children, but Max enjoyed the experience. In a lot of ways, it reminded me of a field trip I took to an apple orchard when I was a kid. We saw the apples and the journey they made from the tree to apple cider, which was really nice to have on a crisp Fall afternoon.
Brrr!!! I am hoping to channel this cold weather and these vivid colors into some artistic inspiration. The colors are so amazing that I have to get something out of them. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ve been seeing a lot of lettering and a little coloring and painting. That will most likely change with Kathy R.’s 30 Day Coloring Challenge next month, but I’ll also be participating in a lettering challenge.🙂
Have you ever had something settled in your mind and your spirit and it just flowed out of your mouth and made you wonder whose lips and voice just worked together? That happened to me in a meeting today and it was not a bad thing, just a very big thing and for the first time, it did not make me afraid if my vision is intimidating – just ready to make it come into fruition
