After chores and breakfast I got back into my exercise routine and then took a walk around the farm to make some pics of the last day of the year.
There is still ice in the lower pastures.
I took a mountain of rugs and all the dog beds to the local laundry right after lunch. I don't like to wash the rugs in my washer because of all the grit that I can't shake out of them. This laundry has some huge commercial machines and they really get them super clean. I was surprised at how many people were doing laundry today.
I don't dry the rugs because most of them have rubber backs, so now I have rugs hanging all over my laundry room downstairs to dry in front of the wood stove.
G-son walked over and played with his new legos for a while before he decided that his dad and pawpaw might need his help with the flooring and walked back home.
I changed all the calenders and took down and put away some of the outside decorations and all the extension cords so they won't get wet in the predicted rain tonight.
Today's weather has been typical of most of this years with above normal temperatures and rain on the way.
To keep today's post from being extremely long I recapped 2012 in a seperate post and published it just after this one.
Tonight our elected leaders in Washington are continuing their bickering on some very important issues and if they don't come to an agreement by midnight the middle class people in this country will suffer yet another blow from this president and his staff. I fear for the future of our country under this leadership.
I'm glad I can put my faith in my Lord Jesus Christ and know that it is He who is ultimately in control.
Good Night, Happy New Year and God Bless.
