This morning I was relieved to see the creek licking the bank top but still in it's banks,thankfully.
There was a lot of water standing in the pasture and the farm pond is overfull.
This evening the clouds finally broke up and the rain stopped after dropping 2.5 inches.
With all the kids almost grown Christmas took on a more relaxed atmosphere. We still met on Christmas eve with hubbie's family but now at my house instead of his parents.
This was our tree that year.
No one was up at the crack of dawn to see what presents were under the tree for them.
With hubbie's grandmother and my mother passed away we rotated hosting my side of the families get together on Christmas day evening,this year it was my turn.
The weather has turned nasty again this evening with the temperature dropping quickly and the winds are really whipping out there.
It is supposed to snow just to the north of us overnight,guess we'll see if mother nature knows where the county lines are ???
The smoke from the chimney looks inviting and we have been enjoying the warm fire this evening as the chill factor drops with the colder temps and the high winds.
I spent some time tonight on weekly paperwork and bill paying getting back into my regular routine. With market now closed on Thursdays it makes it much easier on Wednesday night.
Grateful to God tonight for keeping the flooding to a minimum and for His glorious protective arms.
Good Night and God Bless.
