Waiting for IKE

All the patio furniture and plants are sitting in the hall. We have Olivia with us because Portia and DK left Thursday on a long-planned weekend trip to Colorado with friends. Hey, kids--wish we were THERE, too.

Beatrice is happy, as always, that Olivia is staying over. Both seem a bit clingy, no doubt because of all the stuff in the house and the empty back yard. We'll take them for a walk this morning before the winds get too bad.

Babs came home to weather the storm with us and is having her boyfriend come as well because his place is in a flood-prone area.

I made a Grace Cake after all. Too much nervous energy.

Last night we went out for Tex-Mex and margaritas. That made us feel better.

Dear Readers, thanks for your concern and good wishes. We should be fine--just inconvenienced. I'll post as along as we have power. We're planning to leave after the storm if the power will be out for an extended period of time. Pray for the folks who will be MORE than inconvenienced.

For now, just waitin' on Ike.

Thanks for the update. I made a Grace Cake on Wednesday.

Glad Beatrice and Olivia can be together for the storm.

I'm praying for you and all of Texas.

Batten down and hang tight, QG!

Praying for the safety of all on the Gulf Coast of Texas...

Hope Ike is nothing more than a wet, windy tree-trimmer.

Take care!

Praying for all of you of course. Tell Beatrice and Olivia that their Northern doxie cousin is sending doggie prayers too.

Praying for all who are sitting, waiting and hoping.

We are all still praying from here in the upper part of the State.

Keeping a weather eye here, too. Take care!

May God protect and take care of all of you.

Thinking of you everytime the TV is on Ike. Most disconcerting comment: "If you don't live near the retaining wall you can expect certain death."
