Please get out and exercise the right that many brave souls have fought and died to give you today !
The alarm was late again today as I was already awake and getting dressed before the 8am alarm sounded. This new time is not agreeing with my internal clock time !!!
I had chores and breakfast done before g-son and g-daughter came today. Schools are closed today for election day but d-in-love has to work.
After they both ate huge breakfasts the playtime began.
It was an interesting day to say the least as these two struggled to play together !!!
G-son got out his Lincoln Logs and had to shut g-daughter out of his building area as all she wanted to do was knock down all his building and suck on the logs !!!
She soon found her own toys to play with and all was well.
G-son wanted to go outside and play but he said his eyes burned in all the smoke that is hanging low in our area from the Lake Lure fire which is now over 300 acres and still uncontained. Evacuation orders were being implemented this afternoon.
After d-in-love picked them up at 3:30 I tried to rest out on the porch in the rocker but had the same reaction as g-son with burning eyes and throat.
I think the drought has had a negative effect on the Persimmon seed winter weather predictions around here. These are the seeds from our tree that we cut open. One out of the four had a clear spoon, one looked like it might have a knife , the other two look like we might be in for some tornadoes this winter, haha.
In previous years our seeds have had clear images in them but not this year !!!
It's hard to tell if the clouds or smoke is having the most effect on the sunset tonight.
I have watched some people stress majorly over who to cast their vote for, have heard some folks say they can't vote because neither candidate holds their values, have even seen tears at voting stations as folks struggle to pick the best candidate.
As for me I voted early, I voted for the candidate whose platform was closet to my beliefs, I didn't stress or shed any tears because I know my fate is not or never will be held in either of these candidates hands. My fate and faith is totally in the hands of Jesus Christ and always will be. He will lead me and care for me and pave the road ahead of me with His glory . I will sleep well tonight no matter any election results !
So thankful today that this is soooooooo true !!
