Middle Age Is the Happiest Time

Eleanor Roosevelt quote - Happiest time of life...

Probably the happiest period in life most frequently is in middle age, when the eager passions of youth are cooled, and the infirmities of age not yet begun; as we see that the shadows, which are at morning and evening so large, almost entirely disappear at midday.
— Eleanor Roosevelt

When has it been the happiest time for you?

It is a CHRISTmas tree

I will only call it a Christmas tree!



Christmas tree not holiday tree

It is a Christmas tree…
Don’t tell me it is a holiday tree…
No way..
No how…
I will not call it a holiday tree.

Just as it is Christmas and I will say Merry Christmas! NOT Happy Holidays!

It is MY Christmas and I am going to shout that.

It may be your holiday but it is my Christmas!

CHRISTMAS!

CHRISTMAS!

CHRISTMAS!

Know one can take that away from me.

Just saying!

Merry Christmas!

Grateful for the Rocky Mountains

I have always wanted to go to the Rocky Mountains especially in the fall! So today when I had a free day in Colorado, I decided to take a drive from Denver to the Rocky Mountains.

Once I turned off highway 25, I blasted my music, turned the heater on and rolled down my window and got my camera ready. I was about to embark on Gods little bit of heaven.

I love driving in the country! I love the old Barns and houses and old cars and the animals.

There is so much to see and take pictures of. Unfortunately I knew I had a limited amount of time so most of the pictures are just memories of a beautiful country.

I will have to go back someday to take pictures of all the old buildings and cars.

I will have to go back someday to have time to stop in the little towns to shop, eat and visit with the locals.

I will have to go back some day to stop to explore the park more… Take a lunch and take time to sit amongst nature.

I will have to go back someday to visit the historic Stanley Hotel with its striking white buildings and red rooftop. I only wish I would have taken the extra ten minutes today to take a picture or two.

And I will have to go back someday to see the Aspens in their beautiful fall colors. Today most of their limbs were bare waiting for the snow to fall.
