Hurricane Irma Just Won't Give Up!

September 12, 2017

Good morning.  I almost feel guilty saying that the weather here is awesome.  But today really is a lovely day and I'm thankful for it.  Last yesterday afternoon, I heard from Gary Jr, and all is well there.  I heard from my friend Rhoda, and they are okay too.  Last night I heard from Sean and they are all alive.  However, he has most likely lost both his home and his boat.  His place took a direct hit from the hurricane. 

Sadly, this storm is still ravaging other states.  It is now being called a tropical cyclone and is lashing out at Georgia, North and South Carolina, Kentucky, West Virginia and Virginia, and reaching out as far as Indiana.  I'm praying that Hurricane Jose turns and dies out at sea before he can add to the devastation.  How much more can folks handle? 

Give me a moment here, I'm making a fresh cup of coffee.  I had to drink my first cup cold, because I spent a lot of time on the phone trying to track an order that should have been here yesterday.  The company said it was hand delivered to a resident here, but that is not the case.  I was the only one home when the mail came and the package was not in the mail. 

I had ordered a magazine loader to help me load the magazine for my gun.  My fingers just don't work right when I'm trying to load the magazine.  However, I'm getting a refund instead of the loader.  I guess I'll just have to do a bit more practicing before our next time at the range.  (that will be this Friday)

One package that did arrive yesterday was the air freshener doll bodies that I had ordered.  Woo Hoo!!  Now I can start finishing my dollies.  There's no way I can sew all those little hook and eye sets on the dresses, so I laced up the backs of the dresses instead.  Today or tomorrow, I'll sit down and start putting the embellishments on the dresses.  Here are a couple photos of the dollies so far. 

The top photo is called "Beach Day" and the second photo is called "Cactus."  I have to say that these two are my favorites.  I love the colors in the yarn.  All my dollies have dark hair except this one little blonde, but they are all adorable.  I'll take more photos when the dollies are completely finished.

Yesterday I ordered my new blog book before the discount price ran out.  I like to take advantage of these sales.  Unfortunately, that means that I have expired all QP and kit links through the end of August.  Hopefully, you all downloaded the ones you wanted.  You can always send me your email address if you need any of the links and I'll send them to you.  These are the photos I chose for the front and back covers of my newest blog book.

Before I start on any chores today, I need to pick out a few skeins of yarn because I still have about four more dollies to make.  They are such fun to make.  After this, I'll be finishing up the bed dolls that I made.  These dresses also just need embellishments. 
Now I think I'll enjoy my new cup of coffee while a catch up on some blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.

Oh Edna,
Your dolls are just gorgeous. They really are just the cutest girls around. I love the colors too.
Oh your blog book will be fabulous! Love the photos that you chose. Pogo is just sooo cute! He seems to be losing some of his camera shyness or perhaps your just getting faster at catching him on camera! Either way he is a cutie pie.

I am so very sorry that Sean lost his home and boat, but thankfully they are alive! I really hope that Jose takes a turn for open sea and fizzles out. I am not sure anyone can deal with more destruction from these hurricanes and I was wrong in my comment to you the other day. The last day of the season is Not November 1st, it is the last day of November. But the weather channel said that December hurricanes can't be ruled out.

I am glad that you got a refund on your package. I think that all packages should be signed for. I see UPS just leave them in front of apartments here. Anyone could come along and just take them.

Time for more blog reading and coffee. Hugs to you and my boy.... xxx Beth and Cisco
