Ladies keep in mind the coming storm. We are preparing for power outtages and I know I will go crazy if I can't talk to you all. But I also wanted you to know what's going on in case you don't hear from me in a while. They are saying it will begin here Monday night into Tuesday. I have drinking water, have buckets set out to catch flushing water!, have cooking water, gas grill is up on the back deck for cooking, generator is ready to keep fridge and a few other things running if we need. Kerosene heater is ready if we get cold...paper plates and cups so I don't have to stack up dirty dishes. Guess I had better stop before card class and see what foods I can get that will be easy...
So for now, I am here....chatting as much as I can.
Hope that storm loses its energy before it gets to where you are.... It is good to be prepared.. will be watching to see how it goes..... take care all of you who are involved..
I have not even thought of anything for my X card.... Maybe today i can come up with something...
Location: down the road, around the corner, first house on the left
Hope all you East Coast girls stay safe in the path and wrath of Sandy. Have to say, we do have a generator, but can only have so many outlets attached to it so DH didn't program the computer connections as part of the generator; but we do have TV and kitchen and one bathroom programmed into it. Being in Indiana, I doubt we get anything from Sandy, but we do lose our power due to weather quite often where we live.
I have another X idea and hope to create it today.
We just started getting a steady rain here, they say it will get much heavier tomorrow, also high winds. YUCK!!
I just hope & pray that we don't have serious problems here!
Oh - give you a chuckle - the cruise ship I was on (Carnival Glory) has cancelled a cruise that was to leave from Norfolk VA tomorrow - they won't be able to get the ship out of docks in Norfolk.
And another thing they're doing - a cruise that leaves from NY city was supposed to leave Monday. It will leave tomorrow & sail down to FL - 2 days at sea. I do believe they will be sailing THROUGH Sandy!! Talk about rough seas!! I bet the ship's Dr. will be busy!!
Hmm... x-ray vision... maybe I'll find a picture of an x-ray!

I am going to use today's inspiration to explain taking over the living room to craft!
Your greatest gift to your family and friends is yourself -
your relaxed, happy, and fully-present self.

In my own deepening understanding of myself
I find my capacity to serve others is deepened as well.
The better I am at self-care
the more genuinely nurturing of others I am able to be.

If you nurture your mind, body, and spirit,
your time will expand.
You will gain a new perspective
that will allow you to accomplish much more.
- Brian Koslow
Nurturing is not complex.
It's simply being tuned in to the thing or person before you
and offering small gestures toward what it needs at that time.
