We survived Sandy

So we survived the storm, phew! Looks like Maryland didn’t get hit as hard as expected. I’m stunned by the photos of New York and New Jersey and hope everyone stays safe up there.

My Dad lost a big tree in his front yard that luckily didn’t fall on his house. We don’t have power, but there’s no real damage to our house — we’ll live!

All of the rest of my family is safe, to my knowledge. Thank goodness! I did manage to make a bunch of jewelry yesterday before it got too dark outside. I pulled our sofa up to our bay window and a nice little work station. Check it out… I strung black chain along with the beads! And it is aqua. Love it.

Hurricane Sandy

Hey all, you probably won’t hear from me for a day or two. We are getting slammed by Hurricane Sandy here in Maryland and will probably lose power for a couple of days. The hubby and I are as prepared as we can be… we’ve got lots of animal crackers and apples to survive the storm. That’s all you need, right? Oh, and water. And a flashlight and candles.

The weather isn’t too bad right now… no worse than any other thunderstorm. But tonight the winds are supposed to be crazy, so we’ll see how it goes. We also have a new friend! There is a hawk calling our yard home right now and driving our pup mad. Can you see it sitting on the fence?

Anyway, ┬áif you are on the East Coast, please be safe and be smart. Don’t go anywhere unless you absolutely have to. A lot of states have declared a State of Emergency, so this storm is no joke.

See you on the flip side.
