Dorian has swept through with all it's fury and we feel for the people in the Bahamas, what an awful tragedy. Prayers going out to them and anyone else that was in the path of this dangerous storm in other states as well.
Our evacuation went fine and we are so glad to be home. Large tree limbs in our yard, and alot of debris, leaves, branches, as well as the whole top of a tree snapped and came down in our yard!--in one big piece. "Snap!"--and down it came! I am SO GLAD I was not here to hear that!
Our power wasn't off for long, it took awhile to get the internet back up and going. I surely can't complain as so many got hit so much worse.
Many thanks for the prayers for safety, and for all the sweet messages checking on us.
Did any of y'all get any rain or high winds?
I made these pictures right before Labor Day:Come see me, pretty Loretta! (you may remember Miss Loretta from a post I did about her a few weeks ago)
....and there she is......rubbing my legs and feet, greeting me and saying "how have you been? And guess what?--I saw butterflies on the hydrangeas yesterday!!"
|She's so pretty!|
|On these sweltering late summer days, sometimes I just have to SIT DOWN and rest a bit! Mercy! Ouchie knees.|
|Loretta says "not me, I'm not sitting down----I'm going to LAY DOWN"--look at her pretty snow white paws!|
On hot days it feels like you've walked two miles when you've only gone two BLOCKS! LOL
So sweet Loretta will sit here and observe her neighborhood and it's comings and goings---and we will head INSIDE for some nice cool air and a big fresh glass of sweet tea!
Hope you enjoyed this short walk with us.
