This and that....


I did manage to finish a couple pot holders...go here and look at the 3rd block down.  I had it left over when I made my choices for the latest quilt I am working on.  Well, I should say or not working on....it just sits on the design wall.  Anyway, I cut that block in half in both directions.  I then bordered two of those quarter sections and made the two potholders.  I am not sure what I will do with the other two...probably two more potholders.

We had to have our house and garage roofed...I signed the agreement in May.  I knew it would be a while, so was surprised when it was started last Friday and finished Monday!  I figured with all the damage from the storm on the 12th that that would put us farther down on the list.  No, here they came Friday and did the garage, and started on the house, then back on Monday and finished it.

In doing that they had to take down our Directv dish...and suggested we have them put it back up on a pole...so got that done on Tuesday.   It was really weird being without television Monday night.

Roger has been having some bad times the past few days...I took him to our nurse practitioner yesterday and she started him on a new med.  It has to build up in his system, but I think it has helped some already.  It has really been a hard few days for him.  He told her his head hurt all the time...I don't think it hurts all the time.  She is ordering another CT scan to check things out there...just to be on the safe side.

Lorelei will be starting to school in a couple weeks.  We had her last week, but have only had her one day this week.

Anyway, I am glad things are starting to settle down with Roger and glad the roof is done...now got to live through two or three appts next week...

Bet you can't watch this and not smile....



We are still reading reservoir cats...there are always a few spells of laughter such as this....

Storm damage....

We had more rain late this evening...it rained and the wind blew some here, but nothing awful.  Though the electric did flicker on and off several times, it did not stay off a single time.

Then I got a call from Jeremy asking how we were...did we have a storm.  So I told him it had rained hard, but no damage here.


This and the following photos are from their yard.


When he told me they had a limb out, I did not think it was this big, though in rethinking it, I don't know why I didn't.  The old oak tree is big...


What a mess it is!  His brother has come over and helped clean up some of the mess. 


Along with the fence, it also pulled off some guttering and the drip edge.


This one is taken from the front of their house looking back.

How about a sky show?


These are all shot within a few minutes...probably less than five.  I suggest that you click to expand the view! 


They are very close to the same but I just couldn't pic which one I liked best.


Notice the area between the two wires over the tree abut the middle of the photo.


I tried to film it but it just didn't turn out any good...but it was like a bloom opening and then it blended right back in with the rest of the clouds.

And then it started to rain and blow in on us so we had to go in...otherwise I would have set out there till it ended.  I love to watch a storm...it was such a glorious storm.
