My first has to start with Tropical Storm Hermine. She came ashore last night in Florida as a category 1 hurricane, but now she's down-graded. Our rain started last night about 8 pm and we had intermittent rain, thunder and wind all night. The main part of the storm is staying west of us, but it continues to rain and the wind to blow. We're under a tornado watch until 4 pm.
We have a table and chair set on the back deck and we probably should have taken the umbrella down, but we forgot. It's done ok, but one of the pillows in the chair has blown into the pool. They're made with outdoor fabric, so I'm hoping it will dry out ok.
As I was typing this I heard a thud. Mac said a branch blew off a tree on the side of the house and blew across the deck. Glad it wasn't any bigger.
|Lots more small ones down in the yard. Most of our trees are pretty healthy, thank goodness.|
To keep myself entertained I'm going to be working on some Christmas presents. No photos because they're a gift. I ordered a cross stitch kit and requested one that was printed on the fabric. That's not what I got. Instead I am instructed to find the square in the middle of my material and start there. The diagrams to work from are large and once I get going I think other than going blind from the tiny stitches I ought to be ok. Does everyone start in the middle of their cross stitch?
That's my five, hope you have a good weekend.
Whoops, just as I went to post this our electricity went out for 3 hours, just came back on. Boy was it hot and stuffy.
