[I'm adding more pictures of rugs today. These are some simple self-designed geometrics, antique reproductions, or by miscellaneous designers.]
We were "flooded in" for 6 days this time. That is the longest time marooned here that we've experienced since we moved here, and the first time this has happened in almost 3 years. It was almost unbelievable to us that we were stuck here longer than we were for the terrible flood of 2008! On the plus side I got LOTS of hooking done! Also, got the house pretty clean after being gone for awhile this winter. Now I will feel free to work outside when it gets dry enough. The flower beds need to be cleaned of winter debris because I can see lots of green peeking through the dead leaves! That is exciting, isn't it? I have lots of perennials that need to be divided and rearranged, and will tackle as much of that as I can.
This week promises to be a busy one. Am catching up on laundry today. Yesterday did nothing but go to church, read, computer stuff, and watch the tube. That is a good thing to do on a Sunday ... nothing! Tomorrow I'm going to Sullivan for an extension homemaker district meeting with some other "Jolly" gals for an all-day event. Wednesday I'm devoting the afternoon to making meatloaf for 40 -- Wendell's masonic lodge is having degree work and I'm doing the main course. I've done this before so I feel pretty confident about that meatloaf thing. Thursday we are taking a day off to go to Indy to the Flower & Patio Show at the fairgrounds. Always have other errands to do when we go to the city. Friday I hope to get some lunch out time with a friend. I'll try to sneak some hooking time in there somewhere!
Watching the pictures of the disaster in Japan on TV & computer news certainly makes me feel little and helpless. I think what I can do the best in this case is to pray. I'm glad that my church gives faithfully to UMCOR!
