Ahhhhh !!!! Slept in a little while on this Christmas day. It is another dreary morning with light rain still falling.
After chores and breakfast hubbie went outside to his workshop and I caught up my blog book reading. It was fun to read back over the last 6 years Christmas and note the changes in our family and lives. It made me very thankful for my blessings along the way.
After lunch the rain got heavy again and we watched the creek rise to the tops of the banks again but the rain stopped in time for no more flooding today.
We took the afternoon to relax and do nothing as we watched the rains fall steadily outside.
I always feel a let down after all the Christmas festivities are over and done and all the gifts are opened but this year I am holding on to the season a bit longer , lighting the lights in the house and enjoying the quiet time without having a bunch of things that need to be done. I am looking forward to this next week of slow down time and having time to stop and savor this season.
Hubbie and I talked this afternoon as how next year's Christmas will be with g-daughter running around and wondering what other changes await us in the coming year.
At chore time this evening I dumped another 1/2 inch from the rain gauge.
It is a foggy cloudy evening, but the clouds appear to be lightening up a little bit so maybe the rain will stop for awhile.
The news tonight was all about the weather and the snow storm that is coming across the country.
Today's high was 69 degrees which tied the old record set back in 1955. This is a comparison graft for the last six years.
Hubbie and I relaxed watching some old Andy of Mayberry shows tonight on TV.
Thanking God for the blessings of family and friends and for the precious memories of Christmas Joys.
God Bless, Good Night and Merry Christmas
