Continuing my holiday gift prep, I made sage and chamomile scented candles today. I’m on a candle binge. I’ll be making soaps in matching scents next.
It has rained and rained today, and there is already a flood warning for tomorrow. The teenagers want to declare a high water day for tomorrow so they can sleep in. They don’t like that we all have to get up and find out if it’s a high water day with a delayed opening. They’d rather just sleep through it. I never heard of high water days till I moved here. High water days are when the creeks and river are so flooded, kids can’t get to school. Usually it’s just a two-hour delay while the water goes down. Sometimes it’s a whole day off. Sometimes everybody else can get to school except us because we have to ford a river in one direction or drive through three creeks in the other.
We’ll see what tomorrow brings. In any case, I think I’ll make more candles!
