Hello on this beautiful sunny autumn morning in October! We have enjoyed 2 lovely days here in the north, though for most of you it probably sounds cold still. But on Monday it was 15C (59F), and yesterday it was 18C (about 64.5F). And the sun was shining both days, just absolutely beautiful. Especially after all the cold and rain we have had lately. And there is a lot more cold and rain coming, starting later today actually. A lot of rain. That will raise the lake level and river level a lot as well. But it is so nice to see that sun shining again. Just adds such an amazing brightness and cheerfulness to the day.
It would have been so nice to get out and walk down to the river on those sunny days. But if I managed to walk down there, I probably would have fallen into the river! Just one of those things that happens sometimes. I’m just in too much pain for that kind of walking right now. You know, it would be easy to sit around, grumble and complain about not being able to get out walking in such nice weather. 😠 But why?🤔 It doesn’t do any good. Certainly won’t help anything, just make me feel worse. That’s no good.
It’s better to just enjoy the beautiful sunshine. I can still get outside, sit on my deck and enjoy all the birds coming by for peanuts. Instead of grumbling, put on a smile and enjoy the day! That’s always the best way to do things. A smile and a good attitude will always make grumbling take off and run away. Works the same with worries too.
There are 3 raccoons that come around now, and all 3 decided to go on the bird feeder at the same time Friday night. Not a good idea, it’s made for light weight birds, not fat raccoons. So it broke. It was raining on the weekend so I couldn’t fix it. But a nice sunny Monday was the perfect day to get that done, and it’s better than before. And I was outside enjoying that sunshine at the same time. Perfect. Much better than sitting inside grumbling. Do what you can to enjoy the beautiful weather, with a smile.😃
Speaking of chipmunks. Mine seem to have gone off to their little homes for the winter. Smart little critters. Spend the winter in their warm homes eating and sleeping. Sleeping and eating. Not so bad. Although it wouldn’t be so good for people to do that. Still, it sounds a lot better than freezing my face off during the winter!🥶😂
Oh well, it’s still nice and mild this morning. Hard to believe we are looking at some snow coming later this week. But that’s autumn. Hard to predict, quick changing weather. Always been that way. But the sun is still shining, no matter what the weather. So greet each day with a nice smile and watch it spread to others until it’s as wide as a country sunrise! I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
