This last day of November 2015 is a soggy rainy but mild day with temps in the mid 50's .

These guys are glad Thanksgiving is over for another year !!!!

 G-daughter was here at 7am but all three of us went back to sleep and snoozed as the rain pounded the metal roof heavily.
Hubbie and I waited for the rain to slack a little before heading out to do the morning feeding chores while g-daughter still snoozed.
The animals were in no hurry to get out in the rainy morning.
G-daughter continued to sleep through our breakfast and after I got laundry started for the day.
Finally about 10 am she work for her day to begin.
I did laundry and changed out bed covers and furniture covers to begin the Christmas decorating around here. I got 5 loads of laundry done and some of the Christmas rugs down in between g-daughter's naps and feedings.
I also did a little cyber Monday Christmas shopping !
The tree is now in the living room ready for the ornaments.
After d-in-love picked g-daughter up hubbie and I did chores early since under the dark cloud cover it gets dark earlier.
I emptied 2 inches of rain from the gauge before I came inside.  Our area is under a flood watch now with more rain predicted for tonight, tomorrow and Wednesday, whew !!!!

What a way for November to leave as it has been a very rainy month from beginning to end with 300% more rain than normal.
As I look back over this month it has been a month of ups and downs for the family.  D-in-love went back to work full time at the beginning of the month and I have been keeping sweet little g-daughter three days a week. She is a very good baby and it is going well.
D-in-love was involved in a traffic accident but thankfully neither her nor g-son who was with her were injured. She is waiting now for the person who was charged with the 5 car pile up on I-26 to fix her car.
#2 son has had a bad 2 weeks as he was diagnosed with a herniated disc in his neck and has been out of work for the past 2 weeks. He is slowly getting better with meds thankfully and will see the spine doctor Wednesday.
We had a nice extended family Thanksgiving earlier in the month and a wonderful immediate family Thanksgiving day with all the family here for dinner.
I have had a fairly slow market month as expected but Thanksgiving orders were good this year.
Daughter found her wedding dress on a shopping trip we took to Spartanburg,SC and she is busy as ever with coaching basketball teams at the high school.
All in all it has been another very blessed month for all of us and we rely on the grace of God more and more as life gets more hectic in this holiday season. I'll leave this month with this little quote I saw that is how I feel at the end of some months !!

As we began the Advent season last night in a touching church service my prayer is that all the glory of this season go to our Heavenly Father and His magnificent gift , the Savior of mankind.
God Bless and Good Night.

Your little quote has summed it up nicely for me. Somehow God always helps me get back up. Blessings
