I still think we should just borrow the neighbor's cat and their litter box and set them inside the motorhome for a day or two? Heck, it's just parked in our driveway, so the cat would not be far from home.
We are gearing up to Halloween here at our house. It's kinda special to me cuz it's that big FIVE OH day for me too. ACK! Yes.... I am a witch, I do not just play one on tv, or in politics. tee heee joke there. But I was born on that trick or treat day, which ruined my big brother's outing. Mom went into labor and it cut short his trick or treating event. So I think he still holds a grudge, to this day.
I told Steve that for my birthday I want to go camping. I told the kids all I want for my birthday is *Good Kids*. That is what I always say. Tee hee.
Little granddaughter Allegra is getting all geared up for Halloween. She went pumpkin hunting with her parents and found the best one. Don't ya just love her tie-dyed tshirt???
Granddaughter Chelsea is getting excited too and practicing her Pumpkin Grins
Now I need a pic of grandson Jameson in his puppy dog costume!
As most of you know, some huge storms have been our focus the last few days. Wisconsin kinda got hit pretty hard. Lots of people are still without power on the 3rd day of storms, one of which is my dad. It has him all wound up and excited about it. He calls me just about every hour with updates on his power situation. LOL He has a generator at the cabin and has an LP heater we got him a couple years ago, so he is warm and has his precious tv. But he is going through all his gas cans of fuel quickly. The hard part is finding a gas station with power to run their pumps to get more gas. This is the third day and they might not get power till maybe tomorrow, according to the news reports.
At our house, we have not lost our power. We are not part of the big WisPublicService power company, instead, we are part of a small co-op power company that derives it's power from the little dam upriver. Some times we are the only ones to go out in a storm, and other times we are the only ones that don't go out at all! Like this time.
We only lost one tree in our woods from the wind gusts, some which were clocked in excess of 70mph. It sure made the house creak and groan and shudder. But now, finally, on Thursday the winds are dying down to only 30 mph, or so the weatherman promises. Our river is up a couple feet, but not near flood stage, so we are okay with that.
While I have been holed up here for a few days, I got ahead on some sock inventory and some orders for customers. (For my newest blog readers, I have an antique circular sockknitting machine that is about 100 years old and I can crank out nice wool or acrylic socks with it)
As soon as I got these socks done, I got an order for three more pairs last night, in different sizes and colors than what I had on hand. That figures! So today will be a cranking day if little Chelsea naps this afternoon for a while.
I got a few more rugs woven too, and hemmed up the edges. I have a few more rugs on the loom that need to get finished off. I suppose if the weather doesn't get any better, I can get to those this weekend instead of camping. Sigh. As much as I love weaving, I would rather be camping right now. There are only a few weekends left before the *SNOW* flies, and I have all winter to weave and play on the looms.
Well, naptime is over and the coffee cup is empty. On to my day, and hope you have a good day too!
