Irene Good Night...

Well, Irene has left and we are very thankful.
Thanking you all for prayers/thoughts for our safety.
The damage was inland and somehow the coast was spared..Vermont was really hit with flooding and they lost a covered bridge that was there for over 100 years..So sad to see history washed away..but thankful no one was hurt.
They gave a lot of hype on this storm and many were complaining..but I don't see it that way..
I think it is better to be safe, than sorry..Especially with any kind of storm..you can't control Mother Nature..Lives were lost in different states, so it hit different areas harder than others..
Well, beautiful sky this morning and thankful God spared us..
Till next time, keep looking up.

Hurricane Watch

We will be having a hurricane heading this way, tomorrow..Not sure where about it will hit. I thank God, the water isn't near us, way down the road..but the winds can make things very dangerous. Will keep you posted..if I have electric after this storm.
I have gone through many hurricanes when I was young, on Long Island, N.Y..and remember a boat tied to the telephone pole next to our home..course we would think it was an adventure and kind of enjoy the winds, the water never hit our home..We were lucky.
Well, now on to my adventure with Irene.

Till next time, keep looking up..

A Beautiful Spot to Enjoy Lunch.

On our shopping trip..we always stop at this spot and eat our lunch..Very peaceful. I always look at the little house on the top of the hill/mountain and wonder who, would live there?..I zoomed in, so you can't see how far away it really is..My thoughts on that little home..it has to take a beaten in winter, nothing to protect it, just the few trees. One day, I will have to take a trip and see what it looks like, up close.
Till next time, keep looking up.

Visitor at the Craft Show

This guy visited us at the Craft Fair..I thanked him for letting me take a few pictures.
Have to admit, gulls always make me laugh..They do funny things..I remember once, my mother was in the water, and a gull kept trying to pick up her shoe on the beach. He kept taking the shoe lace, to lift it up, then it would drop because of the weight..Never know what will interest them.

Till next time, keep looking up.

Sun in Morning Fog.

This is this mornings sun through the fog..It was such a beautiful site. No matter what is going on in our lives, there is something to always be thankful for..Was so happy I happened to look out the window and get a few pictures.

Have been missing from my blog..Worked a couple of weekends with youngest daughter at Craft Fairs..I tell you, the last one, near the ocean caused a problem for me. sore throat/cough and just a terrible feeling..nothing that serious, but surprised me, since I am not sick that often..Makes you realize how lucky you are to get out of bed and feel wonderful..something I was taking for granted..Good lesson for me..haha..

Will be visiting all my dear blogging friends, just in case you think I got lost..Till next time, keep looking up.

So Much Happening.

Have been helping one of our daughters with a Craft Fair..It has been busy..another one next weekend..will work it with her again..
While this Fair was in full swing, a little Dragonfly came for a visit..Sat long enough to get a couple of pictures..Oh, the beauty of this little guy, they always amaze me. The colors they come in are so interesting. He just happens to be all black, but look at the little dots on the wing..just wonderful.

Till next time, keep looking up.
