November in Tennessee

November is in full swing here in Tennessee. I have never seen the leaves any brighter than they get here in this great state!! Sometimes when I am driving home from work in the mornings, I get the urge to stop on the roadside and take pictures to capture the beauty. I wish I could still upload pictures from my camera to my computer because I would definitely stop on the roadside in the morning before the wind blows the leaves all down! I really forget how much I love this time of year. I always go with spring when someone asks which is my favorite season. The "hills and hollers" of Tennessee sure do make a person like fall!
The election was just a couple of days ago. I am really glad all that bickering and mud-slinging is over. The person I voted for didn't get elected, but that doesn't mean I won't support the man who got the job. Anyone who is going to lead a country will need all the support and prayers they can get. Some might think my reasoning silly or immature, but I just couldn't put my name down beside someone who will allow partial-birth abortions. I know there are a lot of other important factors in the electing of a president, but I choose to stand up for those who can't stand up for themselves. There are other issues as well, but this one is nearest and dearest. That is all I am gonna say about that!
I have a lot of activities coming up! My friend Leslie will be on her way up here Wednesday to spend some time with her bestie!! We are going shopping (of course),to Christmas Village at the state fairgrounds, to a Radio City Rockette's show at the Grand Ole Opry house, to my favorite tea room (Burdette's in Springfield), and to a Predator's game on Monday night!! I am really excited. It is hard moving to a new place and not having anyone to go sightseeing with. It is just not the same alone!! Needless to say, we are going to be busy and time is going to fly by! As the old adage goes "Time flies when you're having fun." I sure do wish the old adage was "Time flies when you are at work!" But I digress....Thanksgiving will be here soon. We are having the Hick's family meal a week early so everyone can go their seperate ways on the actual holiday. I am going to Sweet Water to my Mom's on the Wednesday before. I haven't been down there since July!! I was used to going down every other weekend when I lived in Tuscaloosa. Things sure do change!!
The month of November is going to be a busy one, and don't even get me started on December!! I think the Christmas month should be twice as long!!!!!
I will hopefully update when December begins, but I am not making any promises!!
Until next time, be loved!!!
