Got an early wake up call this morning from Lowe's saying they were on their way with my washer and dryer. G-son was ready for pre-school so I took him while hubbie stayed to deal with the deliverers.

It is pouring rain and has been for awhile as evidenced by all the puddles on the roads.

They were just finishing getting everything hooked up when I got home and the guy turned both appliances on to make sure they ran before he left.

I decided to go with this Samsung pair that Lowes' had on sale after all my research.

After the first load I was impressed and when I used the steam setting on the dryer to unwrinkle some jeans I was really impressed as they came out looking like they had been ironed. So far I am very pleased.

After we picked g-son up we stopped at Aldi for baking supplies and Sam's Club for lunch and groceries then went over to GBS shoes to look for hubbie a pair of dress shoes. He didn't find anything but I found g-son a nice Columbia jacket for Christmas and a vest for me, both at 40% off.

Still in the pouring rain we got home and got things unloaded.

I did more laundry while g-son played and watched TV. Hubbie went up to his shop to try out his black Friday special can crusher,which work really well he said.

After d-in-love picked g-son up I took down all my inside fall decorations and stored them away in the attic until next year.

The water in the creek is visible from my front porch this evening which means it is getting close to flooding.

Some of our counties to the east of us are already experiencing flooding this evening. I poured 3" of rain our of the gauge after evening chores and it is still coming down in buckets.

Hubbie and I had fresh broccolli for supper tonight.

Daughter came by and hooked up my black Friday special computer tonight and as you can tell it is working fine. I just have to get used to it. I put my old one downstairs and will get it hooked to this one when daughter brings over the hook up she had on hers.

I'm hoping to get the printer hooked to both so I won't have to download all my cake labels and other things on my new one.

Hopefully the rain is coming to an end tonight and we will avoid a flood here. It is supposed to get colder tomorrow and windy,not looking forward to that.

Thankful today for the thirst quenching rainfall and the blessings of a warm dry home to stay dry in.

Good Night and God Bless.

Wouldn't you know it? We have to be in Knoxville at 7:30 (our time) for a doctor's appointment in the morning... AND--they are saying we could get some snow tonight.... I love snow--but don't like driving in it.... Darn!!!

We have had more rain the past 2 days than we have had at one time since we moved here in 2003. Luckily, since we are up high---there's no threats of flooding here. BUT--the lower areas around Crossville have had flooding.

Your washer/dryer look great. Hope you continue to like them.

We already have some flooding here. We had a dusting of snow this morning and it is snowing again but the temperature is 34. I would love to have a machine that gets rid of the wrinkles, especially in jeans.
