It's the weekend!! 8/25 & 26

Prayers and thoughts for all those in need.

Today is Party day. We are closing in on the 1 year anniversary of IRENE! Hard to believe its been a year, a VERY VERY tring year. Our village is getting there slowly only 4 families have walked away. But we will be better off in the long run.

so beans are cooked and staying warm.

I need to
run to do errands
grain store and walmart
make deviled eggs for party
pack for party (we are walking up so no need of a DD)
shower and leave

Hope you all have a great weekend

Good Morning!

Prayers and pixies dust to all those in need.

Christy, enjoy the party!
Reddy, hope you enjoy the time with the inlaws!

The kiddos want to go mini golfing before Josh goes to work today. Then I will work on cutting some more for MAW pages.

Need to get some laundry done and ironing.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Morning Christy, Reddy and Cassey - you are all such early risers!!! ...and yes, LindaBabe, I saw your post at 4:15 AM - omg!!!
Sleep is one thing I have no problem doing. Even the dog sleeps as long as me!
This is family weekend - my dd#1 and grandson arrive today, and tomorrow, the rest of the daughters and families will be here for lunch! I love when they are around, and just wish Roger were here to see how wonderful they are!! I know he is with us in spirit. Can't believe it will be 4 yrs next month since he passed!!
Anyone seen "The Candidate?" Looks so funny, so we are headed out tonight to see it.
Hope you all have a great weekend partying, golfing and getting your Africa section completed.. Enjoy it!

Morning everyone! Prayers and Pixie Dust to those that need it.

Today I have:
mountains of laundry to climb
DH out the door to work at 1
and a baby shower this afternoon--could be uncomfortable, but we''ll see

In between everything else, I think I will work on kitting pages. I am so far behind and don't even know where to start, so that seems like a good place.

Happy Saturday everyone!

Have fun everyone and stay safe.

Had big plans to scrapbook today, but can't get motivated! I think I am exhausted from our first full week of school with the kiddos. This working thing takes it out of me some weeks. Went to Kohl's and now Im probably going to go swimming. Well tomorrow it will be rainy and DH will be in Madrid so hopefully I can get motivated to scrap I will say I was impressed with how organized I was this whole week flying solo. Laundry is done and I just have a few chores to do. I think I realized it all landed on my shoulders so I couldn't procrastinate

On what a stressful day, Isaac isn't even here yet - ARGH!!!! We got about 3 inches of rain this morning already. Shutters are up, patio furniture stowed, lanterns and flashlights are out, batteries replaced in all and same with the weather radio. Laundry caught up too! Already have supplies on hand. We are under a Hurricane Warning so he's coming....

Power was out for an hour today already - a dry run, hahaha! All local channels have had NOTHING but Hurricane coverage and then there's the Weather Channel, you get glued and watch and watch but then, enough already! So we made cocktails and watcheed a dark comedy called "Bernie" starring Jack Black and Shirley Maclaine...it was okay.

Gonna scrap for a bit, maybe take a bubble bath afterwards to relax. I may or may not be online tomorrow depending on the power. I can always scrap

Becky

We are under a tropical storm warning at this point. They have closed our schools for Monday already although it looks like we will have heavy wind and rain it doesn't look as though we are in an area for the strongest part of the storm. Hard to believe that 20 years ago today we were cleaning up from Andrew with no power and today we are prepping for another hurricane.

I know - stay safe! I was living in Orlando when Andrew hit.

Schools are closed here Monday as well. DH works for FPL, out at Turkey Point. He said everything is tied down at the plant, hoping we don't lose power for long, if ever. Hoping Isaac stays as a Tropical Storm; we r gonna get hit with the dirty side of the storm no matter what it is...
