Gorgeous November Weather - History in the Making

IMG_20201107_141127_796Well "election week" is finally over and I am happy that it "only" took a week to get the result. Of course there's still a lot left to be done and the other IMG_20201107_141940_993
side has not conceded and god knows what else may happen. But hopefully we can somehow move on and move forward from here. Let the healing of the country begin. I honestly don't know how that will be possible considering how hugely divided the country is right now but I guess time will tell and time is also the only thing that helps with healing. So hopefully with a positive outlook and leadership we will be able to get there. Certainly not going to be easy but I am feeling much more relieved than I had been in a while. I am also super excited about Kamala Harris and seeing history being made in front of my own eyes. The first female vice president elect and the first female black and Asian woman. So cool. And I really do like her, such a powerful woman. 

Other than that, the weather has been absolutely beautiful this past weekend and today. It's really crazy considering the day before Halloween we had snow and now this past weekend we were in the mid 70ies (20ies C). On Saturday we went to two vineyards (Gouveia and Paradise) We had been there previously in March. With the nice weather we were able to sit outside at both places. Gouveia has a gorgeous view. We also had a delicious cheese and fruit platter there. And Paradise has a nice outside area as well so we hung out there for a while before meeting John at Centrico and sitting around the firepit there for a while.

Sunday we went for a walk at Sherwood Island park, along the beach/water and back through the marshy/grass areas. And then sat outside at Rizzuto's for a leisurely lunch. Definitely took advantage of the perfect weather. Today was nice as well. Went for a walk during lunch time.

Now it's 7pm and I am going to curl up with my book and get some more reading done. I really need to write some letters but just haven't been motivated. Soon. I really do need to catch up. 

Mail Update: Received a letter from/owe a response to:  Carmen/Malta, Nina/WA, Lotte/Denmark and Kimber/Canada.
