Another Monday morning as g-son arrived early and hubbie got up and got his breakfast and took him to school.
I did chores on a muggy feeling morning but the sun is shining between clouds that are floating by.
After breakfast I pulled weeds from the outside patio until Rebekah came by to pick me up and go to a plant sale at the local community college greenhouse. We both thought the plants were a bit pricey but did find some heirloom tomato plants we figured we wouldn't find anywhere else that we purchased.
We then went to a nearby thrift shop to hunt for some pretty handkerchiefs for Rebekah to make some little keepsake bonnets from. The thrift shop was having a huge sale today so we left with a whole lot more than just linens, even a huge cedar chest !
Evy wasn't impressed with the sale or shopping especially around her lunch time but she was a trooper like she always is and we made it home without any major meltdowns.
I spent the rest of the afternoon working in the yard, getting some old stems off some of my plants and checking to see what didn't survive our extra cold winter. Looks like I lost my, several years old Rosemary bush, along with some of my Apple and Chocolate Mint and my Lavender. Two of the three roses I bought last year look like they are not going to come back and the huge potted red rose by the front steps shows no signs of life sadly. This was the coldest winter we have had in many years and the plants were not conditioned for that much cold.
After I picked up g-son we had to go back into his classroom to retrieve his forgotten folder again and I had a nice visit with his teachers. He said I "chit chatted" too long !!
After we got home he ate while I did some sewing. I am determined to attack the cut-out pile beside my sewing machine. I got these two little white baby bonnets made that I intended to get done for Easter.
Hubbie and I did chores and put Front Line on all the outside dogs. The clouds are low and dark this evening and we are expecting the storms to start rolling through our area later tonight. We are currently under a flash flood watch until Thursday.
One of the hardest hit areas was in Arkansas were tornadoes devastated areas.
We have battened down all the hatches we could tonight in hopes that the storms will weaken as they hit the mountains that serve as a protective barrier for our area.
God is in complete control and I can rest in His loving care.
Good Night and God Bless.
