Truly the best thing to happen last week, Adele releasing a new song and album to follow. You had to have listened to "Hello" even if you didn't quickly purchase the album in pre-order. The world has been waiting for her new music for something like four years! She is just incredible.
Do you have your own "must see" programs on TV or Netflix or whatever you watch? I am continuing to watch Madam Secretary and The Good Wife on Sunday nights. And I watch Greys Anatomy and Scandal on Thursday. I like the story lines, the actors, the strong female characters, and the fact that they are NOT reality TV. I watch some of what could be considered reality TV, but have never seen any of the Housewives shows or Big Brother or Naked and Afraid (yes, that's a show). We pay too much for Dish Network but still enjoy having TV so we just deal with it. We don't have a fast enough internet for online programming. And of course, there's sports.
We are barely having a Fall season. It's still quite warm during the days. One of my lilacs is budding and blooming. That's pretty bad. There are many indications of El Nino happening around the world, but we haven't yet seen rain and of course hope that we do. Other signs are many sharks out in the waters, relatively close to shore, as well as little red crabs and sea snakes washing ashore south of here, and lots of other things. Downpours and mudslides and flooding have already happened east of here and on I5 toward LA. Stay tuned, it's bound to get worse this Winter.
The skies have been so pretty. Bright blue skies, fluffy white clouds, beautiful sunsets. A few chances to wear a sweatshirt in the morning, only to shed outerwear by 9 or 10am. The chickens are still molting, the equines are growing their winter coats, the sparrows have returned, and the dogs are playful in the cooler air.
All is well, and now here are a few photos I'd like to share.
Now I must get busy learning the words to Adele's new song so I can sing along in my truck. Have a good Monday and enjoy the week.

I travelled a fair amount when I was in my 30s and 40s. A lot of it was on company business and we didn't have a strict budget, so I c...
It rained and rained all day Sunday. But then Monday came 'round and we had a beautiful welcome break. I decided to drive over to th...
Baby, it's been cold outside. I know, not Iowa cold or Upstate New York cold, but cold still the same. Merry Winter!
