Out For A Drive....
Well we went to vote yesterday . Our voting place is the county highway garage...not a large spot at any time. It was crowded and one or two coming in as one or two left. Only two voting machines. It was taking people longer....some times a sign of split tickets. Even though it was gently raining, this was the biggest turn out to vote that I have ever seen here. I am just so glad it 's over. Now begins the week of rehashing...good grief.
Today will be a slow day here. The sun is shining. Ted's in the shop , working on a few gifts. I will be cleaning, sorting and doing some laundry. Wishing all of you peace. XO

What beautiful photos of your drive. I love the wonderful autumnal colours. And hey, I need an ice cream cone like that! :)ReplyDelete
Alexandra, I could share that huge ice cream with many. :):) I feel at peace...well somewhat, after the elections. If I were not going to the dentist tomorrow...I could feel much better. :( Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh Susie, that was a wonderful story about your Uncle Luke and the train. Even better that there is a fellow in your town that used to work with your uncle. The trees are still pretty with the oranges in your area. I saw some of our trees that had the orange leaves, and they are starting to reddish now. That's a funny picture of you with the big cone at Dairy Queen haha.ReplyDelete
Have a nice day, Susie. Sometimes the slow days are the best days.
Sheri, I miss my uncle Luke...he used to call all of us (when we were kids , he would call us boys. He chewed tobacco and was spitting all the time outside. LOL. He had curly dark hair and twinkling brown eyes with long lashes..my brother Tommy favors him.Delete
I just thought a picture with that cone would be so fun...didn't know I would start laughing and about not stop. LOL I am loving our pretty days here...wish you some too. Blessings, love, xoxo, Susie
Great post! I love just riding around on a gorgeous day. The things you know and pass by every day seem so much nicer on a great day!ReplyDelete
Ann Marie, I love seeing the views in other towns. I think in winter I will look back thru my photos and enjoy the pretty days all over again. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Susie, cute picture. A slow day sounds wonderful..Happy Wednesday..JudyReplyDelete
Thank you Judy. I was ready for a quiet day, as tomorrow is at the dentist. It's very nice here today...hard to believe these beautiful days. Hope you are having them too. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Nothing like a nice autumn drive and an ice cream treat to boot!ReplyDelete
Hi Nancy. That would have been some kind of ice cream, if it were real. LOL. It was a really good day. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Love the BIG vanilla cone!!! Cute pic!!! What a fun moment!!! Sounds yummy!!! :)ReplyDelete
Hi Net, I love riding around my hometown and seeing people I know most often. I love my town, as most people love theirs. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
I am so glad this is behind us. I was up until all hours waiting for it to be called. WI was one of the hinge states at that point.ReplyDelete
Love the big cone! You certainly got your moneys worth there. lol xo Diana
Diana, I kept falling asleep and waking up for more news. I was stressed. I am glad the ads are over with...they were driving us crazy. I wish we could get a law passed that no one could just keep telling us how bad the other is...they should only tell us about what they will do for us. It's so stressful . Plus it only make people upset. I sure could use a couple licks of that cone now. LOL. Hope things are going better there. I know your plate is full. Blessings, love, xoxo, SusieDelete
We were up until 4:30 this morning! It's going to be early to bed tonight!ReplyDelete
Louis Dean and I have had the same sort of 'comfort' day you and Teddy had. LD worked outside in the storage buildings and I worked in the den. We did not watch news non stop but actually watched a couple of programs on our DVR.
We still haven't had cool enough weather for a fire in the den fireplace. I am so looking forward to our very first one! The first and last ones of the season are so special.
Blessings for you as you go to the dentist. I will be so glad for you when all that dental work is OVER!
Linda, Some times we need those quiet days. :):) We watched movies too....did not want to hear all the rehashing...what's up with that anyways? We had a small twig fire Tuesday evening in the fireplace . I go to the dentist this noon...praying for some promise of anyone knowing what is going on. Today is Thursday and my brother has his surgery this morning. Please say a pray for him. Thank you. Love you guys, xoxo, SusieDelete
Nice pictures of your town and pretty weather for November. Frost this morning in southern Indiana.ReplyDelete
Karen, It's been plenty cold here in the mornings...but it nice thru the day. Loving all the sunshine. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
now that the election who-haa is over, maybe we CAN have some PEACE...xoxoReplyDelete
BJ, This was one looooong and rough political trip. Hopefully it will smooth out...those protesting need to settle down and do something more worth wild, for their communities. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh....the election.....ohhhhhh boyyyyyyyyy. Yup, what's to come?ReplyDelete
It's a wonder I am not bald honey. So many things this year has had me tearing my hair out. I am going to be praying for all of us. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
You still have some pretty color there...ours is nearly done, but we still have a beautiful oak out back. I am so glad the election is done...too much fighting and bickering, even amongst families.ReplyDelete
Linda, So many trees are stripped of their leaves , while some are still mostly green. I am glad that election's over ...it was hard on many of us. I do talk politics...so as not to offend anyone....so I vote for issues more than the person. Praying now for the next 4 years. LOL. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
A country drive and a stop by the dairy queen sounds wonderful to me!ReplyDelete
Dewena, I would have gladly shared my ice cream cone with you. LOL. I know you like D.Q. I love a nice quiet drive around town. I love early mornings and evenings the best. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Oh my, I have missed so much since I have been gone. I enjoyed reading and looking at your pictures. It is such a lovely fall at your house and the pictures of your girls are beautiful. Are you ready for some cold weather now? I think it is coming to us ready or not.ReplyDelete
It's been chilly today (Friday) Tomorrow will be pretty but chilly and frost is predicted this evening. That will wipe out the flowers and then I will clean the pots and beds. Hope you are feeling well and enjoying all this sunshine. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
