Falling down on the job!

I haven't posted in weeks! What's up with that? Just a total lack of ambition. 

We survived Hurricane Sandy. Our power was out for two hours last night, and Mom's was out for 18 hours- hers just came back on. I'm so glad Ralph is retired- it was so scary when the power was out and the wind was howling. It was just so dark! All the schools were closed yesterday and today. Tomorrow is back to the real world.

Today is a sad anniversary. It's one year since Sam died. She fought the good fight for ten years with grace, dignity, and a snotty sense of humor. We all miss her so much! It snowed the day she died, and we had Hurricane Sandy on the one year anniversary. Is she trying to tell us something? 

I really have to learn to post pix here from my phone, and from FB. I have a lot of beautiful pix from David and Juliette's wedding. 

Dave and Juliette have been married for over 2 weeks now! We drove down, and it was a beautiful drive. As soon as you leave NJ, it's not flat anymore! Five minutes from the hotel, the car started to make a funny noise- not good. I texted Ed and got some advise from him. 

The day of the wedding, Steph and Dan and Manda and Ben went to Antietim in the morning, and brought us back lunch. The wedding was at 4.30, on the grounds of a B&B. The B&B is built along a hill, and was built by the brother of George Washington! 

The ceremony was beautiful! The bride cried, the groom cried, we all cried! It was a lovely evening.

The next morning Ed and Ralph took the caravan out, and no sound! yay! To be safe, we had Steph and Dan bring Manda and Ben back to the airport, since they had an early evening flight. We made it home fine, they made their flight, and all was well. 

And it's going to be November! We have birthdays- Kevin, Morgan, Donna, Joseph, Franny, Carol.

I joined yet another ABC swap on the HGTV message boards. I took the letter P and got pumpkin fabric. I cut the squares today, and Ralph will mail them off to the swap hostess for me.

And the beat goes on!
