We will be leaving our beautiful log home in the mountains of Southwest Virginia in a few days. We have been fortunate in many ways. We have been able to spend a whole month here, thanks in part to our wonderful neighbors who take care of our cat, Shadow, while we are out of town. We were blessed to have our two daughters and their families here for Thanksgiving. We have had fantastic weather while here..mostly cool and sunshiny days. We have enjoyed getting outside to walk the creek and the rest of the property that we own. We have enjoyed putting up game cameras again to see what roams the woods around here. As of this point, mainly deer and only at night as it is hunting season in Virginia. We did get a glimpse of two bears.
However what has been most incredible are the sunrises and the sunsets. Despite all the craziness that seems to go on daily in our society and particularly the worries about the politicals parties NOT working together to solve the fiscal cliff and other issues, we are always refreshed and manage to forget the worries that could consume us..reminded by the beauty of nature all around us
who is in control.
