“Doo Doo…Look’in Out My Back Door”

Who from the boomer generation doesn’t remember that Credence Clearwater tune?

As we’re waiting for the inevitable flooding that is to come, I’m sitting on my screen porch getting a little bit of natural light and trying to do some knitting. It’s funny how not much knitting is actually getting done, with my brother calling and other distractions. One of which is the amusement of watching the cardinals feed in the rain, looking for insects that are washing up. I managed to get one photo, and had to get wet to get It!

What’s left of Hurrican Florence, the birds come out in the rain

We are in the second day of no power. Thanks to our neighbor’s generator, we had coffee. My husband made breakfast on the grill out back under the carport. I had managed to bake a meatloaf and make a pot of soup yesterday before the power went out.

That meatloaf was delicious with the eggs this morning! It’s a good think I kept that cast iron skillet!

As for the power, it may be a while. I’m tempted to take a drive and assess the town around us, but good sense rules that out.

We have some T-bone steaks to BBQ for dinner. Tomorrow is my birthday.

(ok. I’m going to be 59)

Perhaps I’ll try baking a cake on the grill?

God Bless Everyone!

Hi! I'm a retired Bridal Designer, and am now spending my time getting back to pleasure crafts! My husband and I are still newlyweds, nearing our 3rd anniversary on October 2. I was single 33 years! We moved across the country from Phoenix Arizona, to Lumberton N. Carolina. The slower lifestyle agrees with us! Both empty-nesters, Jim and I are finishing the work on the 1950's bungalow style cottage. Fortunately, this home has a huge addition.... adding about 40% to the original size. Having to quit the sewing trade due to a disability, I spend my time on projects for home, family, and pleasure- as I feel able. Jim, now a Pastor/Judeo Christian Rabbi; is retired from the tile trade, and currently joins his friend in local ministry. This includes a bible study twice a week at a local prison. Join us as I document the journey in our changing lives!
