Sending warmest wishes for a wonderful and joyous Christmas Day!
I have put up a small tree and a few seasonal decorations in my living room. Amazingly, the cats have left them alone, for the most part. The tree is on a small side table by my reading chair. Each morning, I expect to see it on the floor, but it has stayed put. Perhaps they are on their best behavior, waiting for Santa Claws to bring them some treats.
Rain, rain, rain! Since midnight, December 23 (only yesterday), the official weather service has recorded over 7 inches of the liquid sunshine. My own rain gauge is FULL and running over, and it tops at 8". We're on our way to setting a record for the wettest December since the Weather Service started keeping records.
On the bright side, it's supposed to turn much colder tonight, so perhaps when I leave the church after our Christmas Eve service, which starts at 10:30 p.m. and lasts until after midnight, there will be a few snowflakes in the air and on the ground. Snow on the ground would make Gardening Daughter happy. For some unfathomable reason, the child loves snow!
I'm off and away to take care of last minute details, of which there are more than I care to admit.
Merry Christmas, Everyone!
