Here in the Pacific Northwest we a bracing ourselves for a Big Blow. We will get lots of rain and in many areas flooding. I'm in great shape, up high and no chance of mudslides. If the power goes out, we crank up the generator. The neighbors know when they here it that they can come and get water.
But this morning I was working on a project that just went bad. The more I tried to fix it, the bigger mess it became. I finally said forget this and took my dog Miss Molly out for a walk in the woods. It really reminded me that it is the little things in life that make me happy. Molly is always so excited and happy to go for a walk. And it is just a simple little thing.
