So - what shall I do today? Well, Younger Son turns 8 tomorrow, so I've baked birthday cake this morning. And I've started in on my laundry. Fortunately it is a sunny day, since we don't really need anymore water, so I can hang things out on the line. And if I'm a lucky knitter, I'll manage to get in some extra knit time today.
While the flood has given me a "bonus" day off, it is wrecking havoc on many people's lives. My next door neighbour has brought in sandbags and hay bales to try to protect his home from the rising waters. The view from the crest of the shore is typically beautiful, but times like this also make me realize the wisdom of the settlers in the placement of their homes - built on the top of hills away from the high water mark!
