Gratitude Monday

I'm here to say how grateful I am to live in a community with the majority of the power lines buried in the ground. All around me, people have been without power since Friday night's storm. Us? We're good. 

In fact, I slept through the storm and woke up after it ended and spent a couple of hours downstairs watching the Method to the Madness of Jerry Lewis. Which I loved. I started reading the storm damage reports on my tablet in the wee hours of the morning. We've lost some big branches behind our house and a section of fence needs repairing. That's it. We're still in the midst of some brutal heat. 

I meant to post these photos a few weeks back and forgot:



 I had no idea that there was a Peeps store at National Harbor! File under LMAO!

I went and picked up my new sewing machine on Friday afternoon. Got it threaded up and sewed a straight line with it. And that's all so far. I can hardly believe it, but my 20 year old Brother was easier to thread. I'm thinking of naming it Janine. Yes. I'm grateful for this, too.

Glad to hear you're OK too. We were awake during the storm, but our only "damage" was to lose telephone/DSL service.

I have friends in Cheverly who lost power two weekends in a row. Ugh.

Cathy - Peeps Store is at National Harbor in MD - just across the Wilson Bridge from VA.
