This 'N That

Skies like this and worse seem to be a daily occurrence in Iowa the past few weeks.  We've had flash flooding, thunderstorm warnings, and tornado warnings on a regular basis.  Already this morning we were told to take cover because of the thunderstorms and forewarnings of baseball size hail and thunderstorms in the state.  It's hard to find a time to mow the lawn, and it's hard to weed since the ground is saturated and the flowers want to come out with the weeds when you pull!  I feel for the people in CR and IC who suffered through the flood in 2008.  I'm sure they're getting nervous.  Enough already!!

Wow!  Another week has gone by since my last post.  Seriously, I haven't felt like I had much to blog about.  I don't want to bore you with the info from the workshop I had to take last week.  It was a week of four LONG days which left me mentally exhausted. 3rd-5th grades in my district are involved in a study done by the U of I.  We will be teaching science in a different way.  Now, on to putting it all into practice in the fall.

Friday Bud had a little minor surgery, so I've been playing nursemaid while he relaxes and takes it easy.  I even had to feed the cows since he can't lift the buckets.  Any of you who know me know that isn't my choice of activity for the day!

Sunday and Monday we had a nice visit from my aunt and uncle from Texas.  We did a little shopping, eating, gambling, and baby holding as we went to see GS Grayson and my newest great niece, Dakota.  It was nice to see them.

I have done a little sewing, but I don't have anything completed.  Hopefully that will be coming soon. Here's a sneak peak at a little embroidery I've been working on.
I hope to be released from nursing duties long enough to get some serious sewing done one of these days!

Love your embroidery! I know what you're talking about with the weather in Iowa, my son lives outside Des Moines, and I talked to my daughter in law last night. She said the same thing, they're taking cover more oft than not. She also said the warning sirens don't even bother her anymore, she's so used to hearing them, and just heads for the basement shelter. I hope I never see one. Where abouts in Iowa are you?
