A Weekly Offering of This n That

Rainy Day is my alter ego. She is the little angel that sits on one shoulder and whispers in my ear to forgo that 6" piece of triple chocolate fudge with the four scoops of ice cream on it; she is also the little devil who sits on my other shoulder and convinces me that I can eat just one bite of each and be satisfied, and then laughs with such great abandon when in fact, I eat the whole thing, she falls off my shoulder. Mostly, Rainy Day helps me see the humor in living and, mostly, she encourages me down the right path. Not necessarily the straight and narrow one (how fun is that?) but the path that offers the most adventure and fun.

Living With the Election

Rainy Day thanks all of you who voted! If the people or referendums you wanted didn't pass, Rainy Day is sorry, but now it is time to hold each other's hands and together walk across the street to the other side, and together, work to put our country back on track. The key words being: hold onto each other, and stay together. Respect each other, and remember, 'race' is a human construct – each and every one of us is an African American (or African Canadian, or African ______ - insert name of country in which you live;-) All of our ancestors walked out of Africa, some just got the wanderlust earlier than others.

Rainy Day also apologizes for being so late in getting this week's post up – her computers were in the computer hospital getting updated, etc. The timing was good, though, as she had lots of time to spend watching the elections;-)

Now that her computer is updated, she can't find a darn thing. It's sort of like washing your hair and then you can't do a thing with it!

Fall has for sure fell here in Rainy Day's town. These photos are of the grape vines on her patio, with the early morning sun shining through them. Rainy Day has unpacked her long johns. The temps have dropped, and she is delighted her wee singing puppy sleeps snuggled next to her at night;-)
