Missed Spaces?

 The lights, water and air conditioning
returned gracefully, and gratefully, on the 11th day.  Others were without longer and had so much more damage.
These old trees weathered the storm of June 29th.

It has been difficult getting to my blog this morning.  We are country, therefore must utilize satellite and our mail is controlled by google...I am here, so I did make it but please let me know if anyone else is having difficulties.

 Very special visitors arrived is amazing that constant movement!...Photo's are blurred more than not!

Great beans!

The fractur that I started at Cedar Lakes with instructor Susan Feller is done. The few spaces in the back will be filled in today, and the rug will be steamed.  Checking often by laying the rug down on a flat surface prevents packing it too tight. 

A special hello today goes to a friend and speed hooker, bead maker, doll restorer, and simply all around talented lady... who has also gone sky high in a balloon! Hi Mary Beth!

There is much catching up to do here, and Pip will continue to do what he does the best.......

4th of July on this WV Ridge

WV Ridge Storm 29 June 2012

June 29, 2012 the storm came through.  Those working long hours to restore the electricity are battling the heat as well.  This 4th of July evening 2012 it is 101.1 on the ridge at 6:30 pm.  The generator is running so this house has water and electric.

 Prayers are ongoing for those who are out working,and to those awaiting the restoration of their electric. 

Admiration for my ancestors, and memories pre AC abound. 

Reading with a book light, rug hooking in the light of day, the pleasures of an air conditioned car, and most of all family......this has indeed been a memorable 4th of July! 

.......turning to the left, after the top photograph was taken!

Keep safe ...Keep cool...  Happy 4th...

.....and Happy Birthday to my Grandson!
