The weatherman said today would be high of 72F and partly sunny. It is 64F, grey, and raining. Maggie and I are cooped up in the house. You know she hates to get her fur wet. I’d planned on taking her out to the woods today, but every time I ask her if she wants to go, she looks at me like I’m nuts. I probably am. I would love to get out of the house. Instead I am sitting around and thinking, over-thinking maybe a little bit, too.
I am further upset that I had to unfollow a blog today. This blogger accused one of our presidential candidates of being a witch with an anti-Christian, pro-Satan agenda. I realize this country is bitterly divided over the election, but I feel this is going waaaay too far. I was totally offended by this and promptly hit the “unfollow” button. I am upset over the choices in the upcoming election, but prefer to stick to facts instead of character assassination and name calling. Witchcraft has historically been a charge leveled only at women and said women usually ended up dead because of it. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but to me this is a slippery slope to go down.
I am upset and sad over the political landscape in America. Gone are the days when the candidates would say things like, “As my worthy opponent pointed out…” in fact, any shred of civility has gone by the wayside.
I’m going to make myself a cup of hot apple cider and hope the day gets better. While I am leaving comments for this blog open, I ask you to be respectful.
