Fall Fun

We had a football/fall festival/Halloween kind of an afternoon today.  My brother and all his family, my sister and hers...chili and taco soup, cookies, lemonade and cupcakes and chips and hot dogs.
While the adults watched football, the kids played soccer, took nature walks, painted pumpkins and made picture frames.  Holy Cow I am tired.  But I think if you look at the picture below of my sister Pat and me and all the kids, it was obvious we had fun.

I hope your Saturday afternoon was as much fun as ours.

Friday Bug

A busy day.  Family coming over tomorrow, lots of things to do.  I have also picked up a nasty sinus/bronchial bug.  Ugh.

A beautiful crisp fall day, temps are where they should be, rain is not.  We are in real drought situation now, so if any of you can bring us some rain send it on.

Time for a cup of hot tea and bed.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams

If you have not moon gazed the past few nights, you have my permission to kick yourself.
This moon has been one of those you will remember for a long long time.
It's brilliance and size has made me moonstruck...even more than I was.

Looking at this super moon puts it all in place.  How can you look at this celestial beauty and not be overwhelmed by the love and beauty of our universe?  How can you look up at  that pearly orb and feel hate for anyone?

If you remind yourself, that no matter where you are, who you are, that same moon shines down you and your loved ones.  That moon doesn't care what color your skin is, what your religion is, or who you are voting for.  It bathes us all in its silvery glow and for me, it serves as a reminder how truly insignificant we humans and our rants and raves really are.

Take a moon bath tonight, let some rays shine down on you, spread some kindness and love tomorrow.

Goodnight, Sweet dreams

I saw this on FB this morning.  It touched a nerve.

Emotional classes today.  Yoga does that sometimes, release comes when you least expect it.  Tears are not uncommon in class.  We talk about paths, the ones we choose, the ones we regret and the new ones we have to take.  Change is not always what we expect and often is more difficult than we anticipated.  But may we always see the beauty of each path we take.

For years I thought that the goldenrods that bloomed each fall were making my eyes itch and me sneeze...all that blame on such a pretty flower.  Turns out ragweed was my enemy.
My apologies to the goldenrod.
