Schmidt Homestead

Our new home in Woodburn, IL

Wednesday, December 12, 2007

Our weather here has been pretty miserable. We had ice over most of the weekend, so we hibernated and worked inside the house. We were supposed to get a second round of ice Monday, but it passed by us, and we thawed out. It’s been drizzling, overcast and in the 30’s since then, so everyone is pretty sick of it. We haven’t seen the sun since last week! I heard that tomorrow is supposed to be partly cloudy, so I’m looking forward to that.

I took a long lunch today, and Steve and I went to a cut-your-own tree lot and got a Christmas tree. He has it in the stand on the front porch, so we’ll be moving furniture and getting it set in the living room tonight. After all this dreary weather, I could use some Christmas cheer.
