Hurricane Florence

Has really kicked me in the butt.  I am still not in my home and I have no idea when that will change.  Seems that many of the workers have left NC and gone to Florida which has left a big hole in the recovery of our state.

I have been blessed with a wonderful friend who has opened her home to me and made me feel as though I am home.  I miss the blogosphere.  I will return as soon as I can.  In the meantime, I wish all of my fellow bloggers a very Blessed Merry Christmas.

Just a quick update.

We are still stuck in Virginia.  The roads remain flooded in NC.  The kids and the animals are handling it well.  I dare say better than Kelly and I are.  Thankfully there is a pool the kids can burn some energy in.

It started raining here today, but it’s not heavy.  I think where we are in Virginia Florence will be missed by the storm.  I sure hope so.

Weekend Coffee Share

If we were having coffee this morning, I would tell ya’ll about my experience evacuating my home because that very rude Florence has come to visit.  She had the audacity to park right on top of my house!DnIBW26WsAUCMPr  Can you believe it?  My house is located just about where the white dot is in this picture.  Needless to say, I will most likely be going home to a mess.  However, after being in a car with 9 cats, 2 dogs, a rabbit, and a lizard, we arrived in Virginia safe and sound.

We were a caravan of three.  My son in law, his dad, my grandson and 4 cats in the lead car.  Me with 2 dogs, 2 cats and the lizard in the middle.  My daughter and grandson and granddaughter and 3 cats, the rabbit in the rear.  Just before arriving at the hotel, someone slammed on their breaks and caused a pileup.  Thank God we all were untouched by it.

So we are staying in a wonderful hotel,  Homewood Suites.  The staff is wonderful.  It’s pet-friendly so no problem with the animals.  We certainly lucked out there.

I know that I have been absent for longer than I realized.  Life has been busy.  My daughter and her kids are living with me temporarily while work is being done on her house.  So, time is limited if you know what I mean?

I would ask for prayers because I have no idea what I will find when I get home.

The time had come
The time was right
For venturing out
Into the lights

Dresses that dazzle
Shimmering jewels
Photographers snapping
Those famous fools

Then dinner right after
At that swanky place
Cocktails and caviar
A prelude to scorn?

Conversation
Exhibition
Flirtation
Deception

Reality reveals
To every lad and lass
Money and fame
Doesn’t mean you have class
