Just had to share with you the big Halloween Bash that Pea had at her place last night. Just click on Peas Corner and join in on a fun party. Look what I showed up in.
When it comes to celebrating she knows how to throw a party. I bet you will find yourself in costume too.
Pea is one of the reasons I love blogging. When your feeling down you can visit her and leave smiling.
I have not forgotten about the pictures I promised of last Sunday at Kaci's Juvenile Diabetes walk. Andrea was kind enough to email some to me so hopefully over the weekend I can share them with you.
Been really busy this week with the landlord out here. She and her sister drove down from Nevada and we went over a lot of things that are need of some repairs. Yesterday the tree guy removed ten more of her lovely old oaks and cedar trees. She is just beside herself that so many are dying.
Today an exterminator came out and we walk around the property with him discussing how he might could save some of these trees. Most have died from the drought last summer and she finally realized today that was what has been killing them.
Like you I have been watching the sad pictures being aired about our neighbors on the East Coast. I have to say it has just broke my heart watching this and not knowing what to do to help them.
I have lived through some horrible storms here on the coast when I was a teenager but this storm is something none of us ever want to see again. Incredible what our friends are going through.
All night I tossed and turned trying to figure out a way to do something that would help some of these suffering. I pictured myself asking for help on my blog and then loading big trucks full of all kinds of things they are in need of to just survive.
Right now it breaks my heart that I have a generator sitting out in the barn not being used by a family that so desperately needs one. At four o'clock this morning I was still awake trying to think of how I could at least load up a few big trucks and me drive one of them there.
Then I thought of a friend of mine who admits being a hoarder and her sister too and I thought we could solve their problem of what to do with all their stuff by backing up trucks to their houses and storage buildings and taking loads of unused items and furniture to all the families who have lost everything. I would even give up some of my things if I thought I could get it to them.
So what do you think? Can all of us bloggers unite and figure how to make life better for our neighbors who have lost everything.
What about you! Are you a hoarder? Do you have rooms stacked to the ceiling full of clothes, furniture, cookware, dishes, sheets and God knows what. Would you be willing to give it to those in need? It might be just what you need to do with this stuff.
I know your thinking well Maggie it's not your stuff so sure it's easy for you to give it away but the same friend who admits to being a hoarder just told her brother-in-law that she has never seen a hearse pulling a U-Haul to Heaven so with that in mind. You might could end up helping a lot of homeless people on the East Coast.
I know me I will lay in bed tonight again and try to figure out how to get people to donate generators, beds, food and medicine to name of few of the necessities.
My problem is being so far away but that should not stop us from helping.
Once again Any Ideas?
Love to all
