Let me finish the sentence...You can tell we're from Florida by our webbed feet...LOL! This silly storm was just crazy...it would not go away...and we're still getting the effects of the feeder bands...don't I just sound like the weather girl. Yesterday and today were both very nice in the morning and early afternoon...we even saw the sun...YIPPEE! but then the afternoons have been raining, raining, raining. We really did fine here, no flooding, we are very grateful. There are many, many people...entire neighborhoods...that are completely flooded and have been for days. We just heard today that FEMA is coming tomorrow to those flooded areas...I'm not going there!
The boys have been very happy that we've gotten back on our walking schedule and our playing outside time is almost back to normal...the yard is still so wet that they don't get to stay out too long...don't want any accidents. That was truly the hardest part, getting them out. We had our slickers, umbrellas were no help at all, the boys would get soaked and with all their lab underhair it would be hours before they dried out and then it would be time again. Well, then we would run out with them in between the bands of rain......we had a little window of opportunity to get the dogs out Thursday afternoon. We were walking pretty fast and I hit a patch on the sidewalk that had a bunch of mold on it and I slipped and went right down on the sidewalk. Landed on my hip first and then my hand and elbow. Andy was walking in front of Howie and I...Howie kept walking and got next to Andy...no Carol...hmmm? He turned around and saw me on the sidewalk and the first words out of his mouth..."What are you doing down there?" Then he came rushing to me and I'm yelling at him not to run...I didn't want him fall on the sidewalk too...then we really would have been in a mess. I got myself together and figured out that I was OK and he got me up...we didn't get very far and it started raining again...added insult to injury. I was already starting to stiffen up by the time we got in the house, so we filled up my big tub, turned on the jets and got me in it. I think I sat in there for half an hour...I truly think that saved me. I wasn't moving too fast on Friday, but I was getting around and by Saturday I was good. My hip is pretty bruised and I know it's there everytime I sit down...but I'm FINE! Sure could have been a whole lot worse...again we were very fortunate.
I got some sewing done...I got lots of blocks done for my Hopscotch quilt...it is so darn much fun... Thanks Tammy for getting me going on this one...I LOVE it!
Then last week Doe had beautiful quilt on her blog that inspired me...she used Ava Rose fabric and I decided I had Roman Holiday fabric that I had planned something else for but I had what I need to do this one...so I started making stars...
These stars are so fun to do...I have lots more cut out so I'm going to keep making stars. Go by Doe's and see the whole quilt and she has a link for the free pattern from the MODA website.
Thanks Doe! I'm having fun!
Have a wonderful week everyone...I think we're going to be back to normal...YIPPEE!
