After lunch I went to clean at church and then to an estate sale.
I didn't find much, just an ajustable chair for one of my sewing machines and a canning kettle.
While I was inside the sale the rain poured down but as I left it slacked off. I stopped at a couple more places looking for a corner cabinet for a spot in my living room but had no luck.
The sun made a brief appearance on my drive home.
After chores I listened to the news. Earlier this week President Obama declared an end to the war in Iraq and is bringing all the troops home for Christmas.
There were celebrations everywhere !!!
Thank God this brings to an end a 9 year war with the loss of almost 4500 of our men and women in uniform during that time.
Today has been a dreary day with drizzley rain all day with temperatures in the mid 40's.
I walked by the window this morning as the birds were busily rading the feeders for breakfast and in just a short time saw several different varieties and had a chance to practice my new camera setting d-in-love showed me the other day. I love seening the rain drops falling in some of these photos.You can see what I'm talking about by clicking and enlarging the pics.
Hopefully after this next week I'll have more time to watch my feathered friends.
This has been a busy year and I'm looking forward to a much needed hibernation this winter !!!
When I told the pastor the other night I was going to coast for a while come January he laughed and said he'd believe it when he saw it !!!
Coasting for me probably has a different meaning than for some people. To me it means having time to sew my crafts that I enjoy , clean and re-arrange furniture in my house, sort through my closets, as well as other task that might seem like work to most people.
Tonight I iced 6 more caramel,1 chocolate and 3 coconut cakes to hopefully get ready for a busy market day tomorrow.
Thanking God for the blessings He has given me today as I strive to do His will in all that I do.
Good night and God Bless.
