Impending Hurricanes!

So what does the morning of an impending hurricane look like?


There are cookies being made and Wii being played…

There is lots of salsa making using freshly plucked produce from the garden…Please be nice Irene!

This is gonna be a HOT one…just the way Chicken likes it!

Look at this loveliness…

And this..

I also made the boys snap beans…we ended up with 5 quart sized bags! I remember sitting on my Mama’s floor and snapping beans from my Grandpa’s garden..good memories!

In preparation for Irene I also played with Nora a lot….

I mean really…how could you not?

I also made hurricakes yesterday (Clementine Angelfood cupcakes with sweetened condensed milk & pistacchio flavored icing)…What can I say, when I get nervous I start making stuff!

So you wanna know what it looks like outside?

Well..not too bad actually…

The rain is definitely coming down…maybe we should’ve cleaned out the gutters?

The grill is getting a good cleaning…How do ya like our rope job? We couldn’t find our bungee cords…I’m sure I’ll come across them within 20 minutes after the storm!

I’m sure I’ll have more pics to post later…until then, maybe I’ll find some time to read….. I’m getting giddy just thinking about it!

    Were waiting for the worst; supposed to hit us around 7-8 tonight. Definitely not looking forward to the next several hours. Be safe!

    1. We’ll be right behind you, our winds are really starting to pick up..I think our worst should be around midnight…Don’t know if that’s a good thing or not…maybe it’ll be like kittens and babies…if we can’t see it, it must not be there! 🙂
