Good morning. Tis cloudy today with a possible chance of some rain. I've been watching the Weather Channel as they cover the storm damages in the middle section of our country. So far, there are already 28 deaths, with more expected. It is simply devastating to see what is happening to these folks.
I know I've said it before, but in my whole life, I have never known there to be so many of these severe storms that are leaving so much devastation in their wake. Trust me, I did not live my life in a cubby hole unaware of my surroundings. These storms happened only once in a while. Now it seems they are a daily event from mid-Spring until Winter when it is too cold to happen.
How does one recover after such a traumatic event such as these tornadoes? Especially when you have already been through it once before? I don't know if I could keep rebuilding.
On a lighter note, a friend sent me a photo that I thought I would share. I don't know who took the photo, but it is awesome. This poor kitty was abused and rescued, and later adopted by the young man in the photo who is holding it. (At least that's the information given to me)
Have you ever seen such a big kitty cat? This one is three feet long and weighs at least twenty pounds. It looks to me like it probably weights more. Wow!
I also have another really adorable photo that I found on the web. It's a female squirrel who rescued a baby she found in an abandoned nest. Our furry friends never cease to amaze me.
Yesterday dwarf Helen and I went shopping. First we went to an Ann & Hope store to look at kitchen curtains. Wowee!! I fell in love with this store. Every aisle had all sorts of goodies, and I was so tempted to buy more, but I was good and only bought some new curtains for our kitchen. I will definitely be shopping here again soon.
Next we went to the Christmas Tree Shoppe. This is one store where I could spend hours. I bought a shepherd hook (for hanging a plant or bird feeder) and some small garden fencing. Also, I got some more suet treats and a thistle sock for the birds, and a couple more sets of bulbs for the garden. These flowers will do good in the shade.
I finished my day off last night by crocheting while I watched a bit of television with Pogo snuggled on my lap. There's about six more rows to go and the green afghan will be finished. Woo Hoo! Well, that's my news for today. Till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
