NEWSPAPER PUBLISHED WEEKLY ON THURSDAY

Life, as I see it… Not a river, no bears…

The river was a creek and the only wildlife we saw was a deer at the cabin in Montana. So, neither of us fell in the river or got eaten by a bear.

It was a lovely few days of peace and quiet and time to appreciate what God has created.

As expected, there was no phone, cell service or WiFi. There was a television and a DVD player so we started watching ‘Yellowstone’ and got hooked on it. The coolest thing about watching it at the cabin was that the program’s mountain scenery was duplicated if we looked out the window behind the television. It was like being in the middle of the show.

We’re home again now. It’s always great to get away for a few days, but even better to come home.

Tom and I don’t go out much. We just go out for necessities. We live in a different world these days. More folks in our little community have contracted Covid-19. It’s not a huge number like some areas, but it’s here all the same.

Granddaughter Lea’s basketball team played the final game of the season on Thursday and came home winners. I didn’t get to go, but was able to watch it online as one of the parents live-streamed it. What a great game! Congratulations girls.

We puppy-sat our granddog Kyra yesterday. Kyra is a 17-year-old Jack Russell. She never ceases to amaze me. As old as she is, she just keeps going. We have a pretty big back yard and when she visits, she runs around out there like a puppy. I’m not sure what her secret is, but I hope as I continue to age I at least have some of Kyra’s determination to keep moving.

As always, I say the key to it all is to keep moving.

This week, we begin the shutdown process for the season. The pool has to be prepped and covered for winter. The patio furniture has to be stored. Of course, it’s also time to decorate for Halloween. Things will look different around here. Winter is on the way.

We’re still battling with the hot tub delivery folks. It’s hard to believe something we ordered and paid for in June is on back order and won’t be here now until November. Really? It’s gonna be a trick to get that thing in the yard if it’s full of snow.

Again, I’m frustrated that this – like every other thing these days – is being blamed on Covid. Again, Really?

However, Life is still good today.
