A RAINY PEARL HARBOR DAY IN 2011

Still raining this morning as I hurried through chores trying to keep from sliding down in the mud.
After breakfast and my crossword time I worked out on my Gazzelle for a little while,did not want to over do it since this is the first time in a long time I've been on this thing. After about 15 minutes my heart rate was really pumping.
I met the lady coming after her Avon order in the drive so she wouldn't have to get out and got rained on again. I'm glad it is warm outside as many times in the last couple days that I've been wet.
I started finishing up my inside decorations today along with vaccuming all the floors. With all the leaf raking going on in the last few days we had bits of leaves all around.
I moved some decorations around again today,for some reason this year I can't make up my mind where I want things. I decided to put all my santa collection around the wood stove instead of the new village set. Plus there won't be as much to move if we need a fire in it.


I got the ornaments on all my trees today also.


This is the big tree in the living room all lit up tonight. Tonight I moved the village set from an old sewing machine top in the living room to the wood stove in the kitchen and moved the nativity set to the old sewing machine.Whew that's it , I'm not moving anything else !!
Hubbie went over to daughters for a little while tonight to help finish putting together her things she bought Sunday and after he left I turned on all the inside light decorations and enjoyed then in the quiet peacefulness of the evening. All I could hear was the wind outside as it is really blowing hard.
It is supposed to blow snow around some and there is a winter storm advisory out for in the morning due to black ice on the roads. The temperature is dropping like a rock tonight,it is 33 at 10:30. I emptied 1 and 1/2 inches of rain out of the gauge at chore time this evening bringing our total rainfall from this system to well over 2".
After watching Survivor on TV I bake a few cakes for tomorrow at market. I look for it to be a really slow day, thankfully I do have a couple orders if the roads aren't too bad.

Today is a special day in our family as well as for  all families in this great nation. Today we celebrate the memory of those who died in the attack of Pearl Harbor. The act of violence that started WW11 which my father-in-law fought in as a member of the United States Navy.
Although he was one of the lucky ones who made it home this photo says it all.

I join my heart with many others tonight as we remember the over  2400 military members who lost their lives that Dec. morning in 1941.
Praying for peace for all nations tonight.
Good Night and God Bless.

Yes---let's never forget Pearl Harbor --and all of those who lost their lives that day.

Beautiful decorations... Love your tree ---and all of those stockings hung there...

Hope you get a little of our pretty snow... It was one of the kinds which I love since it clung to everything...

Hugs,
