Another week has flown by and it's Friday night again. Pouring outside here... we still need rain, but we expect it all day tomorrow, as well. We are going to get some cleanup done here around the showers this weekend... it seems farms always accumulate "piles o'stuff".. and we want to get them picked up before the family party here on the 16th.
Our family nativity set, which belonged to my parents before me, is almost 90 years old now. It will be unpacked tomorrow, and set up in a place of honor on the sideboard, to remind all of us of the "Reason for the Season". Other decorations will be set up, too, so the house is festive for the party. Keith will help in between college football tomorrow, and the rain will hopefully force us to go slower and have a really good day.
I was planning all week to attend the horse parade in Lawrence tomorrow, but heavy rains are dissuading me. The parade goes on as planned, and if it is not too cold, I may still try to go to take some pictures. I can't do the cold AND heavy rain though, anymore, the bones just can't stand it!
This girl was scoping out the yard this morning before I went to work... she has also dug another hole to China under our precariously-balanced old walnut tree. We are now keeping her inside daily to prevent any more of that.
I'm in search of some water goblets and wine glasses in different heights at the thrift store tomorrow morning... I'm going to fill them with different Christmas candies for the party.. don't you think they'll look festive? I looked at some at Pier 1 today, but goodness.. I think I can get them for a quarter at the thrift store, so that's the way I'm going! I'll take pictures when they are set up!
