Feeling a little anxiety about the unknown . . .

We returned from a wonderful vacation almost two weeks ago and I have been feeling sorta lazy since then. I think I'm ready for the summer to be over and the school year routines to begin again. I've made an effort to enjoy every day and try to stay in the moment this summer and I think I've done a pretty good job of it. I've taken lots of photos but haven't posted many of them. I still have my beach pics in the camera!! Right now, our focus is on preparing for this possible unwelcomed guest.


This is Hurricane Irene and we live right above the little dot where New York is. The news and weather channels are reporting that we could be experiencing weather unlike any other in an entire generation. We're starting to prepare for Irene today by taking down our backyard tents that we've had up all summer and bringing everything inside so it doesn't blow around. Our basement hasn't had any problems with water, thankfully, so we're hoping it will be okay and we'll be able to go down there if we have to. Our neighbors have decent sized trees in their yards but hopefully they are far enough away to not do extensive damage if they fell. My husband has already been called in to work on Sunday morning for a 6 am to 6 pm shift. He works for Con Ed which is the major electricity and gas supplier to Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx. We're hoping he can make it back home after his shift is over but it's not looking too promising. Everything is just a big question mark at this time . . .

Many blessings ~ Wendy
