Humor me with my showing you pictures of our hail storm the other night. I say humor me because I know that this storm is nothing compared to the snow most of you have been dealing with for months now.
I did find out during this storm that this ole grandma can still run. About one in the morning Tinkerbell and I were woke by a roaring noise that sent both of us jumping from the bed and each running in seperate directions.
Under my stairway in the living room there is a closet that I store Christmas decorations and my luggage. Every person usually has a plan in case of a bad storm to run and hide. In this ole farm house that is the only place I think might save me during a tornado.
I know that roaring noise and hail can mean a tornado might be developing and nothing scares me more than the thought of a tornado. I set a record running from the bedroom to the living room and then throwing out enough of my decorations to find a hole to sit in.
thank goodness that the hail did not destroy my car or the windows in the house. It did strip numerous trees of their leaves and branches. These pictures I am showing you are just of my front porch and back yard.
Clean up is still going on since there are 52 acres out here and lots of trees. I spent hours in my yard cleaning up the mess. Then this afternoon I mowed about three hours trying to mulch a lot of the leaves with the tractor.
It was a blessing that my landlady was not here that night because the poor thing would not have survived the storm. She is very frightened of storms and this one was very bad. The hail beating on the tin roof and the roaring noise that sounded like a train coming through was unnerving. My brother laughed at me when I told him the house actually shook. It sure felt like it to me while sitting under the stair way. lol
This has been a very busy week and passed quickly. I had to paint the windows in the dining room that my painters left me to do. I was so angry about them not finishing their job. It may take me a while to send them their check.
The windows were painted such a dark green that I had to give them three coats of paint. I was using Behr paint with primer but it still took three coats.
Tell me about your week and how your doing. I love hearing from you. My plans for the weekend are to spend some time catching up with you and enjoying your sites.
Also I am hoping that your sharing what your cooking for Easter because Christi is bringing her boyfriend to my home for the first time and I can not decide what to fix. They are celebrating Easter at his mothers on Saturday and then here Sunday.
It's late and I am very tired tonigt so I will say good night. As always I appreciate you coming by here and I love it when you leave me a note letting me know how you are.
Sweet Dreams and Love to All
