Sandy's coming, hide your stuff folks......ummmm.....maybe....

The cold night last week scared all the color out of the heavenly blue morning glories.  I stuck a few unfrozen buds in some water and this is what resulted.....strange but beautiful, almost like miniature moon flowers.

Winter is trying out her new coat.  It's a little big but she seems to be comfortable in it.  The next one should fit better now that I know what I'm doing!

I took it yesterday while we were cleaning up the yard.  We are pretty much done.  Things are put away.  The chain saws are gassed.  We have plenty of oil for the Aladdin lamps.  Water is in buckets.  All this is just in case for a storm that is probably not going to be much of a problem.  The people along the coast should be a bit more careful as there probably will a storm surge.  We are on top of a hill so unless there is an end-of-the-world surge we will not have a problem with flooding.

Winter and Aloysius are representing the animals attitude.  Sleep through any storms or anything for that matter.

Be careful but not hysterical.

As always, thanks for stopping by................*s*


  1. we are good here- just windy but lot's of family and friends that will be riding this out in Nawf*ck Va. area-- hope for the best for them.
    That is strange about the flower, but I have heard it all has to do with acid in the soil.
    Hang tight.

  2. Intelligent words of wisdom in the midst of all the media hype. Thank you. It's comforting to know that you all are prepared.

  3. Dearest Susi,
    Late with my blog tour but we had heavy kitchen duty. Sunday I took care of the coffee hour after Church so Saturday I baked 3 cakes. Yesterday we had our best friends over for supper and I'd baked also bread. Feels good to have a warm kitchen when it is stormy outside. Sandy is causing this and we have chilly nights too.
    You're all set, we not yet, hope it will not freeze for some more time to come.
    Hugs to you and yes we all could learn from our pets!
