Holy Schamoley! It’s been crazy around here. You probably heard that we had some really bad storms, here in the midwest, last Friday. Here’s the radar pic that we pulled up on a cell phone — we were at work with a perfect view of the incoming storm when they took all our fun away and made us move away from the windows. Something silly about tornado warnings. Look at that hook — that’s not good!
They’re calling it a Super Derecho. I’ve never heard of a Derecho before, but it’s basically an inland hurricane. We were lucky and aside from a few snapped trees ;-(, didn’t have any problems. BigDaddy, MeMum and MyDadLovesMeBestSister didn’t fare so well though — they’ve been without power since the storm, so they’ve been staying with us. It’s been a good time to have house guests, as the family room is spread throughout the rest of the house while we drag out the painting as long as possible. Here’s the “aerial” view of the family room — we left the couch parts and a chair to bunch up in the middle. The couches are currently serving as beds to whatever kids happen to be here — that’s TheFirstChild and SweetiePie as we speak.
It’s working out well for me though — I go to work in the morning and come home at night to a gourmet dinner. The school where MyDadLovesMeBestSister works has been out of power too, so she hasn’t been working. She’s an awesome cook and she’s made me realize that I need a wife. I could get used to this!
We’ve had a little crafty fun too. TheCuteNieces love to raid the dungeon and they decided to make message boards the other night. My heart lurched a little when CuteNiece2 chose some of my Ghastlie fabric for her board, but I gladly sacrificed the last of the tree print.
Here’s a finished shot, taken with her cell phone, that she sent me while I was at work. I think she did a great job. CuteNiece1 chose old jeans (which I had no problem sacrificing thankyouverymuch), but her board isn’t done yet.
Anyway, that’s been the excitement this week in ThimbleannaLand. No time for much else, so I’m recycling an old picture to wish all of my American friends a Very Happy 4th of July. (And a Very Happy Birthday tomy not-invisible-blog-friend Isabelle today too!) If you live in an area that doesn’t have a fireworks ban, light one for us!
