This morning there was sun on the porch where Karma caught some rays...
...and listened to the birds singing.
We've had the usual cloudy days...
...with an occasional peek of sun since I last wrote.
Monday night rain misting me from the fan rocking in the bedroom window and the dryer vent slamming violently against the building woke me from a dead sleep at around 8:30pm. The building was shaking, lights were flickering, wind roared like thunder, the sky looked green...I shoved Karma in her stroller and rolled her into the bathroom (only room without windows). Grabbed rubber soled shoes, my robe, my bag, water thermos, camera, phone, laptop, and a chair. The sirens went off.
Dagan called me from their basement. (They knew my days and nights were flipped and I might be sleeping.) Karma and I waited it out in our bathroom. Dagan and Leah were down in their laundry room with Sammy and Annie. (Another reason I am falling in love with cell phones.) Annie had been a poop and ran to hide under the bed...trying to bite and scratched Leah I guess. Next time they'll just chase her downstairs--LOL!
We're all okay. But it was a doozy of a storm--long storm front with high winds, hail, and tornadoes. Caroline emailed me yesterday and had to switch to this afternoon to come and clean because the clients couldn't go their worksite because they still didn't have electricity yesterday. A cold front moved in after the storm. Back to 50s yesterday. Today it's sunny and peaceful. ;) Might reach the 70s.
Besides that--LOL!--since I last posted I have been working a little on the birthday cards...
...coloring the bases of the cupcakes. All done with that step now.
I made a recycled wedding reception card for my brother's oldest boy.
We can't make it down to the Twin Cities for it, but Dagan, Leah, and I will send a card. :)
I took pictures of Dagan and Leah's furbabies when I went back on Monday morning. They are funny...take turns eating. First Sammy ate some...
...while Annie waited.
Annie took a turn--and then they started over. Did this about three times each. So funny. I guess they don't really like to be at the bowl at the same time.
I get my tree fix when I go over to their place!
They have the nicest view of the woods and a little river is right behind those trees. More like a creek where they live.
This blossoming bush is right outside their living room window.
I have no idea what it is, but it is loaded with all these reddish-pink flowers. Very pretty!
Well--the internet and I haven't been the best of friends lately. I have still had some trouble posting comments on various blogs and had trouble posting my own blog last time (hope none this time). Also have had trouble replying to comments on my own youtube account? Arg! So, if you haven't gotten a comment from me lately on your blog or a reply to your youtube comment, I have probably read it but wasn't allowed to post a comment or reply. Blogger has been touchy ever since the 2-day meltdown. Youtube has done this to me a couple times in the past--not letting me reply to comments on my videos. So random! I apologize. When it works, it works. I doubt I'll go back and try to repost. Sorry. Should be better soon, I hope. In the meantime, I am copying this whole post this time before I try to upload it. Fool me once...LOL!!
I'm getting back toward being on days. Dagan and Leah are coming over tonight if I am awake enough--been up since 3am and I'll email them later. Just washing clothes, listening to the birds, and glad I never lost my electricity. The porch must be dry if Karma is laying out there. Might have to grab a book and read in between folding and hanging clothes. ;)
Have a glorious day!! :):)
