Fall winds are sweeping through, but Summer refuses to give up entirely. I was watching the wind in the trees today--it looked like it was raining leaves! Luckily I have very few deciduous trees--mostly spruce--so I don't have to rake many leaves. But I love to hear the wind in the cottonwood and poplars. Birds are flocking, geese are flying overhead day and night--and the peepers have given up. Lynnie has a new coat to keep her warm and I just got her a new fleece blanket (with pink flowers) to sleep under. And, yes, I am still knitting socks--we may all need to wear several pairs at once with the price of heating oil!
Here's something I've been doing for several days and I hope you will give it a try too: You know how people (not us--those others!) do stupid things, especially when driving--like cutting us off, not using turning signals, yada, yada, yada. Next time, instead of getting mad, try saying "Thank you, thank you very much" in your best Elvis voice! I can't stop smiling after I say it and it makes me feel better! I know, I know, it sounds silly...but try it! It doesn't cost anything--and it takes fewer muscles to smile than frown. Go ahead, try it now...bet you can't keep from smiling!
Until next time, happy quilting! Thank you, thank you very much (LOL).
