The dogs hear the alarm and there's no sleeping after that without hubbie here to get up with them so no extra zzz's today for me since hubbie went back to work today.
These rain droplets still clinging to the fence are evidence of the scant 1/10th inch of rain we got overnight.
I did chores and had breakfast then ran out to Walmart to pick up some baking supplies for tomorrow's baking list. I dread this time of year trying to figure out just how much to bake ???
I stopped in the Minic Clinic to let her listen to my congested chest but there was a really lot of folks already there that looked much sicker than me so I came home to try and just rest and see if that will help me get over this crap.
I put things away and rested until daughter finished her basketball practice then I met her at the mall to look over the after Christmas sales there. We only found things in Bath and Body in their semi annual sale. I always stock up for the year at this time from there. Usually I order online to keep from getting a headache from all the smells but today the aromas were not strong and we got to finish our shopping.
I also snagged another photo frame stocking holder at 1/2 price for daughter's little babe that will be here for next Christmas.
The check out lines were long in all the stores so maybe the sales will be good this year.
I came home in time to get the chores done here just as hubbie came home from work and then we put out a roll of hay across the road.
It is nice to feed on these beautiful shirt sleeve, 65 degree days. But the seesaw temps are starting up again later in the week with even a little snow predicted.
This evening has brought a little of all kinds of weather with a sprinkle of rain and some sunshine.
Of course the #1 flood was the eastern North Carolina flooding in October caused by hurricane Matthew as he skirted up the east coast. More than 15 inches of rain fell on already saturated ground causing one of the worst floods on record and costing 28 lives in eastern NC.
#2 flood was in August when 30 inches of rain fell in Louisiana causing major flooding.
In our area we went 75 days without a drop of rain causing things to dry out completely at the worst possible time of year when the dead leaves were falling from the trees in November.
#7 Was another historic flood in Houston Tx.with rains causing flood waters to quickly rise to 20 feet in places prompting many people as well as animal rescues.
#9 happened in Ellicot City Md. when 6 inches of rain in 2 hours sent a torrent of flood waters through the city with such force it stacked automobiles .
Christ maybe coming back sooner than later with all these changes going on and I feel ready for His coming do you ???
God Bless, Good Night and Happy New Year.
