Soccer and grandkids
My granddaughter loves soccer but actually has really liked all the sports she plays. Anything where she can run around is fun. She is so cute. I wish she was coming next month also but the great news is my son and grandson are coming next month for a visit. I can't wait. I haven't seen him will be 2 years next month. Major hugging coming up.
Work was OK last night. I was charge at 11 and we got 3 admits but it wasn't bad. One more night. I am well rested today so it should be fine.
I finished that book Mutant Message down Under. You know how you read a book 20 some years ago and it makes such an impression on you and then you read it again when your older and more cynical and it has lost its charm? That is what had happened with the book. I just didn't believe it now. Now it reads like one of those white modern man has destroyed all that is good and right in the world and we must be stopped books. Kind of like Bambi, "Careful Bambi....MAN is in the forest". Horrors!
I have a jaundiced eye on some of the foul cries of evil we have done. Yes we have torn down trees, we have re-routed rivers, we had cultivated our civilization as man has done for centuries. Like gophers, moles, and prairie dogs build their cities, so do we, its not alway pretty and sometimes harmful but almost all animals will build a nest. I think we are getting better at looking at the impact on our planet as we go, but survival is very high on every species lists of must do's.
Anyway, the book was a disappointment this time, but there were still some things in it to give me pause and food for thought.
Rick has a lovely rich stew bubbling away in the slow cooker. My mouth is watering. This time of year must fight that urge to pack on the pounds and get ready for the cold months ahead. The farmers almanac says it will be a mild winter. I am all for that. There guess is as good as any. I have my outdoor plants in and we have had frost. I need to pick the last of my green tomatoes for fried green tomatoes and take down my terrible flower garden for the winter. I just let it go to seed after all the baby bunny washing of earlier this summer. Lost the joy of it.
Well take care all, Sorry your weekend is ending. However cheer yourself with this thought.....I am off tomorrow! There, now don't ya feel so much better?
Below is my son and granddaughter, don't they look alike? She is sleepy after the concert.
