Some Shopping & Other Stuff, The Weather and So Much To Be Thankful For

DeBary, FL.

54 deg. overcast, light rain. NW wind @ 22 mph.
Forecast = Showers early, then partly cloudy for the afternoon. High 61F. Winds NW at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of rain 50%.

Except for the weather, it's been pretty quiet around here. Jim and Linda did some Christmas shopping the other day, Got some prescriptions refilled another day, went out to eat at Bob Evens one evening and then, I think it was on Monday, Jim went over to Highbanks and brought some more "stuff" from Nora, back here to the house.

Then, yesterday, the skies opened up and it started raining  and raining and raining!!!! Now, I don't mean light rain, or even rain showers. It started raining and it rained hard for almost the whole day and most of the night!!! There's reports of 4 to over 7 inches of rain in central Florida. By the reports, we had almost 5 inches of rain right here in DeBary!!!

Needless to say, there is flooding in many parts of the area and now this morning, there's a cold front coming though, The temperature has already fallen from the mid eighties with little to no wind to the low 50's with 20+ mph winds and they're talking about the low 40's tonight!!

Today, Jim has a few more errands to run and he wants to go over to Highbanks to check on Nora. Tomorrow, Jim and Linda have again been invited to Marv and Inez's in DeLand for Thanksgiving dinner. (Marv and Inez are Lindsey's parents), I'm sure Inez will have a huge dinner again with all the "fixins'". :-)  It sure is great of them to invite Jim and Linda every year. :-)

I hope all of you have a great Thanksgiving. I think most of us have a lot to be thankful for! I know that I'm very thankful for all the doctors who treated Linda this past year and to all the people who called, stopped by, e-mailed, commented, or in any way sent their thoughts and prayers Linda's way. It was a rough year, but Linda is doing much better and  we're expecting more good news from the tests that she'll be having next month.

Thank You So Much!

So, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!!! Hope all of you have a great day!!!!

Did you know that the first Thanksgiving celebration lasted three days?
