Well by now most Americans have voted or are standing in line somewhere waiting to vote. I shared in the form of a comment earlier today, that I have a real problem with the media starting to make projections as soon as the polls close on the east coast. I truly believe this could be a deterrent to those voters on the west coast, Alaska and Hawaii. It's only 4pm here right now & they are already blabbering away about who it looks like is winning. It's just not right. In fact, I wish they couldn't utter a word about election results until one or two days after the election. Do the absentee ballots not count? Here in my town, they're saying they won't be finished counting them until towards the end of the week. I'll climb down off my soap box now.
I'm going to be watching movies tonight, I won't be able to stomach the non stop election commentary that will go on all evening.
It's been sunny but windy here today. I ran a couple errands (by the way I got regular unleaded yesterday for $2.30 a gallon) and then came home and put on my "work in the yard clothes." I ran the lawn mower over the front lawn to pick up the leaves and the debris the cedar tree drops. I must have felt ambitious because after the lawn was done I got out the big wide patio broom and swept up the millions of wet leaves on the driveway and in front of my house. Then I used my snow shovel to scoop them up and deposit them in the yard waste can. Before I was done, I nearly filled the can. For the moment ~ the front yard and driveway look wonderful. But they are predicting another wind & rain storm for my area so I'm sure I'll be doing the same thing all over again in a week or so.
I'm going to start downloading the vacation pictures real soon. I'm still going thru mail, and the bags of stuff laying around on the living room floor plus the normal day to day stuff. Tomorrow is my Reader's Group at the Round Table Pizza so that will take me away for about 3 hours. But I am anxious to get started on telling you about our time away from home.
Until next time........Linda
