Getting Back to Normal . . .
We were very blessed and Hurricane Irene weakened prior to hitting us, and since we have been experiencing a drought this summer, we did not get the damaging flooding that many other areas suffered. We lost power a couple of times, but it wasn't too long and we had frozen plenty of water and were very well prepared. Fortunately it has cooled down, but (UNBELIEVABLY) The Great Dismal Swamp is STILL on fire! It is now 90% contained so I am hoping it will be out soon. We have not smelled the smoke recently so that's good! So we had alot of raking to do and cutting up the tree limbs that fell, but no damage. : ) I have nothing new to show since I really have not been in my sewing room. Once we got power back, there was alot of cleaning to do and we had moved to the ground floor for safety and everything was out of place. Now we are catching up to prepare the children for school. I hope to have lot's of Wild WISPs tamed by the end of September!
