Sunday Funday: Finally Fall Edition

This weekend is the kind of weekend that we literally wait all year for. It is right on the line between warm and cool. It is a bit cloudy with peeks of sunshine – maybe a little rain. A person feels alive outdoors, but also looks to nest in the warmth inside. The sun sets early enough to allow for some wind down time in the dark.

Of course most of all the fall colors are back for their annual show. We only get to experience this once a year, so we want to make the most of it. After a summer of pretty lush green, the reds, oranges. yellows and purples really delight our eyes and our minds. Often our thoughts are propelled to a time when we were young and a pile of leaves was the greatest toy in the world.

The day ends with a warm meal and some comfy pajamas and a great nights sleep in cool room under warm blankets dreaming about the fun to come tomorrow.

Back to reality – here is a video by Republicans for the rule of law taking a violator of the constitution to task (1 minute). This is an ad that will air on Fox and Friends tomorrow morning:
