Old dog, new tricks

Yesterday it rained and blew and blew and rained. Before work I snapped a couple photos of "alternate sunshine" and posted them on Instagram; it was a good day to report to a desk job!

But this morning...

Since Saturday night....
...oh, this morning! The sun was shining and the birds were singing! Although many of the leaves had been stripped from the trees, they made such colorful confetti on the ground. When I returned from barn chores, Brian still wasn't up so we could get through as much of our homeschool curriculum as possible before leaving for homeschool co-op. Rather than getting frustrated, I went back outside and rode my horse, pulled some weeds, pruned some branches, disconnected and coiled all but the barn hose. When I returned to the house just before 10, he and Rick were finally up and eating breakfast. So I sent Brian off with his dad and will report to the co-op alone – after a little alone time here. Maybe I'm finally getting smarter in my old age. ;-)

That's it for today from . . .

We saw terrible scenes of flooding in the Northwest on the news... I am so glad you are not affected. We had rain, and now the cold is coming in.... BRRRR

Totally agree about the wising up Michelle. I'm learning that it's of no use to get myself upset at what/or how people do things. You just aren't gonna change people - they are who they are. As are we.

Love the picture where the ground looks covered in fall confetti.
