Late in the afternoon yesterday, we decided to go on a hike up in the mountains. It was warmish and lovely. This is the first time we’ve been up there in Autumn.
Glorious. Our shoulders dropped, the endorphins kicked in, and all this is about a mile or two from our door.
And in case you missed it, I posted this photo of Scout on the blog’s Facebook page yesterday. A bit blurry, but adorable nonetheless.
Scout, in an uncharacteristic move, put her paws up on the arm of the loveseat and looked right at me like she was ready to have a little chat. Don grabbed his iPhone and called her name and this was the result. That smile will melt your heart.
I’m in love, love, love with this picture.
By the way, the MHC Facebook Page has been neglected lately, as has my Instagram page. I’ve even considered deleting the FB page. Between writing two blogs and all my other responsibilities, it’s hard to keep IG and FB in the forefront of my daily thoughts, nor do I feel the need to most of the time. I’ll try to be better, but frankly, that’s just the way it is sometimes!
My dad is a WWII Veteran who has never romanticized war and has nightmares about his experiences as a young soldier to this day. In honor of our Veterans, may we strive to find a way to end war and the destruction and heartbreak it brings.
