Getting Ready for Sandy
Right now it looks like Sandy will be skirting past us with only a inch or so of rain and 30mph winds. I am looking forward to the rain and wind and the cold weather that is coming right after her. We need the rain and the wind will hopefully take all the leaves off the trees so I can get the raking done in one chore instead of raking every few days till Christmas. And of course I am going to love the cold weather. Its only going to get down in the 30's but at least it will be cold enough to have a fire in the stove and the kettle simmering for tea. Prayers going up that it won't cause damage to my northeastern neighbors. Pot of stew simmering in crockpot, pinto beans and cornbread all ready for a nice supper. Goats,rabbits,chickens, dogs, and other animals all have dry,fresh, bedding and they seem ready for our crazy weekend weather. Stay warm and safe everyone and don't forget to count those blessings!
