A few pictures of Minot, ND. Very windy today, most of the leaves have fallen. Has the feeling winter is really just around the corner.

It's Fine Today
by Douglas Malloch
Sure, this world is full of trouble-
I ain't said it ain't.
Lord, I've had enough and double
Reason for complaint;
Rain and storm have come to fret me,
Skies are often gray;
Thorns and brambles have beset me
On the road-but say,
Ain't it fine today?
What's the use of always weepin',
Making trouble last?
What's the use of always keeping'
Thinkin' of the past?
Each must have his tribulation-
Water with his wine;
Life, it ain't no celebration,
Trouble?-I've had mine-
But today is fine!
It's today that I am livin',
Not a month ago.
Havin'; losin'; takin'; givin';
As time wills it so.
Yesterday a cloud of sorrow
Fell across the way;
It may rain again tomorrow,
It may rain-but say,
Ain't it fine today?

Hoping for you a "fine" day today!

Like your pics Valerie. I've never been to N.D. Is it flat there ? It looked like it was from the pics.
Thank you for your visit today.

Hi Theresa,
Thanks for stopping by. Minot itself is in a little valley but the surrounding area is pretty flat. Just a few days ago there was still quite a bit of color from the trees changing but today there is a definite change in the air. Kind of exciting. I never thought I would live in North Dakota!

Beautiful pictures Valerie! It looks very serene.

With winter soon approaching, it's the perfect time to think about some cozy recipes. Or about making a pig pot of hot cocoa, something to warm up cold hands! :)

Hi Valerie, I just wanted to pop over and say hi. I hope you've been well, just busy.

Since I haven't seen a new post of yours, I thought I'd check up on you!
