It has begun.
No matter how old I get, I still get nervous.
They have extended the warning, I have the tv on still right next to me.
I'm going to try to get out to lock the birds up... but if I can't, I'm not going to worry too much... they will have to go through the night with temps dropping... and make it through with their lights on in their henhouses... but that won't kill them.
We have a storm shelter here in this house, thank heavens!
I have been working here at the house all day, after running out to get the birds fed and watered.
I did see this beautiful sight on the way:
It is almost a block worth of flowering trees on two different properties.. an absolutely glorious sight!
I came home to this!
And several hours of showers which we sorely needed.
And was this kind of day for the dogs. Abby was staying close while I folded clean clothes and put other things away... I'm still working on it here at the new house.
I found a sack of toys I had bought at the thrift store before the move... and the one Abs has in her mouth has a sound thingy... and says a phrase. When she picked it up, it talked to her! She went crazy!
This was dinner today, I worked on it after putting things away.
I have to tell you, it takes a while... those are meatballs, only I kind of tore them up as I ladled them...
but my gosh, delicious! I found the recipe on Facebook, posted by the Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond, and the recipe is HERE. This is part of a promotion by Land O Lakes to pin to help America's hunger. If you go to the link, Ree will explain. Yes, I've pinned... and we'll be making this great dish for family at some time in the near future!
This afternoon, we have had a terrible situation in the county to the south of us...
a shooting by a Neo Nazi sympathizer of three persons... and a four in the hospital in surgery.
Our hearts go out to them, and our prayers.
