Hurricane activity


Here goes another storm right into Slidell, LA where Gordon's sister her husband Don, Joy, David & Lauren live. This evening Joy called us to say there is a mandatory evacuation and they will be on their way down here tonight (it is 10:30 pm here now). Atleast there is time to get moving, last time Gordon & his dad drove up to the Panhandle 1 day prior to Katrina to meet them and help drive the cars/kids back here.

So, tonight will be a night of little sleep as we wait for the family to arrive safely.

What about Hanna? Here is the chart for that storm


Sure looks like the same projected path.
By the middle of next week we should know better Hanna's plan. Rememeber Faye? Well we took pt's to shelters on Monday and returned them home on Tuesday when it cleared, guess next week we will be doing the same thing.

26 months and boredom

Yes, another month has gone bye........26 to be exact. Nothing to blog about since there is nothing new to report on the adoption front. Hopefully after the Olympics things will change.
Boredom will bring out the strangest things...first I made a quilt, now I am working on a scrap quilt. Well lookie here I have made a purse too-out of placemats- go figure. I found a blog on the web and thought hey I can do that..............ok so the actual outside of the purse, no problem the problem is the liner, snap and making it look clean and pretty so you can't see the seams. I figured this $3.00 placemat would retail for about $175.00 to $200.00 if I had to count my hours worked on getting that liner just right. Here is a picture of my work, might be the first and last one I do! But it is cute isn't it? Click on the pic to see the close up.
