The wind and the rain came back in full force last night. Now there will be a whole lot of cleaning up to do again. This morning we cleaned house and did the laundry, my Monday morning exercise. I had a quick dental appointment to get my permanent crown glued in place.
Then this afternoon we made a trip to a couple of stores near by for a bit of in person Christmas shopping. The wish lists have arrived via email, and it's time to start on line shopping and even in person shopping if things have to be ordered or even if you really want a specific thing. Supply and shipping problems continue.
When we drove back up our driveway the rain had stopped and the stuffed yard waste bins had just been emptied this morning, so Tom did some picking up of all of the new boughs down from the latest wind storm. One of the bins is filling up already.
Hummingbirds, who are year around visitors, appreciate that we haven't had a frost yet to spoil the hardy fuchsia flowers, and the Fatsia is just now blooming.
There' a lot of time when we aren't working, like when we were watching the US Men's National Team play Mexico in the qualifying round of the World cup on Friday. USA victory!
