Seaking Shelter

A quick update on "Sandy".
 
 
This pretty male Cardinal is seeking shelter in my fading hydrangea's.
 
If you go outside, you will get wet
and your hair will be tasseled.
 
So far, so good!!

3:30 p.m. Update, The Weather Outside is Frightful.
but everything inside is delightful.
We still have power and really good eats!!

  12. Hi Debbie, as NJ natives who have family and friends still there and blog friends now too, we hope everyone is safe. Things can always be replaced, but folks cannot so we are thinking of everyone, including the wildlife. Things are very wet with torrential downpours and wind gusts here on the VA eastern shore, but we are doing OK. Hope you stay safe as well.

  39. Thinking of you and the hubs, Debbie. I have a quilting friend in Wall that we haven't heard from since she posted a picture on Facebook of a downed tree in her front yard (fortunately away from the house). Hope you don't have damage and only minor inconveniences.
