We are still here... and it is still raining. We did get a bit of a break yesterday from the constant rain. The wind was still blowing pretty good though. I'm sure most have you have heard about "Brevard County and it's almost 30" of rain." I'm happy to report that although most of our streets are flooded our house held up very well. I can also tell you that our pool is definitely full at this point.
We had a few "visitors" on our pool deck which Richard and Nathaniel thankfully removed Looks like this guy had already had lunch ~ ewww.
We did get out to the grocery store yesterday and man, did we need to get out of the house... but then I guess everyone had the same idea cause it was packed! I will say though, that everyone was going out of their way to be nice and polite to each other ~ guess cause we were all in the same boat, or at least all needed a boat to get to the store. Anyway.. Richard found this which we didn't actually get but how funny is that? I love the name and check out the picture on the label. That's my kind of "time out."
I've spent a bit of time in the sewing room. I made these "With love" bags. It's a free pattern from Joan Hawley at Lazy Girl Designs. Much prettier than the ones you can buy at the grocery store.. doncha think?
I also made this little fabric basket. I first saw it on Sandra Sew's blog Isn't it just too cute. The original link came from Pink Penguin which I've just started reading. She's got quite a few great projects.
And last but not least I cut out all the pieces for a new bag last night. Julianne loves spending time in the sewing room as well and she did these little pieces with the scraps I'm really happy that she is this comfortable around sewing machines.
With any luck today will be the last "no school" day for this non hurricane. The kids are loving it though, one day in school...6 days out. Richard actually was out of work for 3 days as well. Between the flooding (he works right on the river) and the power outages... He did work from home though which was really nice. I like having him here. Well off to start a new day...
