We've been having torrential rain the past day or so. The river next to Grandma's is so high, the walkway that goes down to the floating dock now goes UP to the floating dock. Yikes!
We celebrated "early Christmas" today, since we'll be off in NZ for the real day. I set up our mini-Christmas tree in the living room (after clearing out the couch area) and set the presents there.
The lights on our big tree nearly all died by the end of the season last year, so we'll be getting a new one. But I'm putting it off another year, since I didn't really set up Christmas this year (too busy and seemed odd to do it when we'd be gone anyway).
