Big Progress


This room, which was a woodworking shop for the former owners:


Can you imagine it all cleaned up, with shelves stacked with fabric, batting safely stored, drawers filled with tools and notions.   

DH is donating some of his Corona time to remove the rough workbenches, vacuum up sawdust, and then mop down the walls, patch the holes, and paint.....

We will have to do this one step at the time, one wall at the time, because look what's on the other wall:

and more:  

 Well - stay tuned and I'll show you progress as it goes.  But don't hold your breath, cause this is going to take a while !

Easter Storms

Sunday afternoon I saw this article pop up on my computer:  "How to social distance while hunkering down in a tornado shelter"

 I knew it was just all too much.  Oh, lord.

Double disasters, terrible for some parts of the south.  How did a nursing home move 55 Alzheimers patients at night in a storm?  Those nurses and aides are saints, saints.

The other saints are the southern men...….. all those men who drive all those pickup trucks.

Ladies, when you are in trouble, you need one of those men with a pickup truck (sometimes called "bubbas".  They have a truck, they have jumper cables, they have a chainsaw, and they will be the first one to stop when you are disabled beside the road, or there is a tree blocking your driveway.

We were lucky here.  The debris is mostly taken away now.  I won't complain about a 3-day lapse in internet, power, and phone because others were hit more badly.

So, here we are.  Amazingly, the petals are still on the dogwoods, and the mountains are green.

And the hummingbirds returned yesterday.

The quilt on the longarm is calling to me, and I must save some time for sitting on the porch and watching nature.

Stay well,
