Although Its Been Said
Woohoo! It rained yesterday which means it warmed up!!! Picked up an inch of rain, bringing my year to date total to 10". Double digits finally. Still have a ways to go before we reach our average of 60" to 70". January and February are historically very wet months up here at the little cottage by the creek in the redwoods.
I took this picture yesterday near the end of a steady downpour that had lasted most of the afternoon. It is from my soggy deck and you can see my soggy rosemary and geranium in the lower right. The low-tech rain gauge is affixed to the deck rail on the left.
I've finished making the girls' Christmas gifts, along with a little something for my neighbors. N is still stuck in Denver - talked with her today and she said she doesn't think she will make it home until after Christmas. Bman and his band are currently rehearsing next door for their gig tomorrow night at Henflings.
Baby Girl flew in yesterday on a non-weather delayed flight (yeah) and Jen met her at Oakland Airport. Baby Girl and Jen have been hanging out, shopping, took in a movie, and are plotting Baby Girl's 18th birthday dinner tomorrow night. The girls sound like they are having a blast without mom hovering over them. Can't wait to see them tomorrow night, spending the evening eating, laughing, catching up, and feeling the love.
Although its been said
many times and many ways
Merry Christmas to you.
