Obama got his second term last night and I couldn’t be more pleased. I don’t have to leave the country now.
I was scared for a while there last night, but sanity prevailed! AND Minnesota defeated the constitutional amendment making marriage possible only between a man and woman. YES! Now let’s get marriage equality on the table and pass that sucker!
Still catching up on it all, but that’s the big news. Here’s a couple of pics to brighten what for me is another dreary gray day. Winter in MN sucks so far. Very little sun.
This was taken in late fall when most of the leaves were off the trees, but ain’t it pretty? The grass is still green and the water in the river, though low, is clear and reflects a gorgeous blue sky.
The following shot was taken at a scenic overlook; I was going up north to visit a friend here from Florida (he’s returned now, and one day soon, AJ and I are going to visit him down there. In February!) and pulled over. Suki sniffed the grass while I took pictures.
This is the St Croix river, in full fall foliage. Beautiful! I have other pictures that show more of the river but I love how this one is framed. I’m standing on the MN side; we’re looking at WI. Both states have passed laws requiring special permission to cut down trees along the river. When I’m able to enjoy scenery like this, I understand why.
Enjoy the day! I know I will. 🙂
