So there she is. Sorry about the weird joints between pics. I did manage to get that gold blackwork border finished at the top too. I'm glad I did it -- it adds a little something.
I'm also late with my TUSAL report, so here it is.
It always looks the same, doesn't it? Oh well. I just keep squishing my fibers down.
We're still in the midst of cleaning up from Irene here. The basement is drying out very slowly. We did a massive amount of getting stuff up from the basement, both salvageable and non-savageable, this weekend. We are waiting to see if we get more flooding from the rain storms for the next few days -- a frontal system first, and then the leftovers from TS Lee. I'm praying that we stay dry down there, but am fearing the worst. Hopefully if there's more flooding, it won't be as much as from Irene.
Once the rain is done, we've hired some flood damage people to come with a dumpster to throw out all the water soaked things down there, dry the basement out, and treat the whole basement with anti-microbial treatment to prevent mold, etc. This is scheduled for Thursday if all goes well. So slowly but surely. (Yes, it's an unfinished basement.)
The boy child starts his senior year of high school tomorrow. Rather unbelievable to me. And over next weekend, the girl child will be taken back to college too. She's also a senior this year, which is also unbelievable.
Some of you asked how Mia did during the hurricane. Truth to tell, she was just fine. I think she might have been a bit scared once or twice, but overall, she was pretty relaxed and dandy. lol!
She was a bit clingy though, wanting to be close to us. I'm wondering if this is a good sign (keep in mind Mia still hisses and bats at the girl child, which is why this is so bizarre).
Mia also cuddled with the boy child a lot.
Once again, I apologize for not answering your comments for a while, and not commenting on your blogs as much. Hopefully I'll be back to normal soon.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a happy, safe, dry week. (Except for those of you who need rain of course.)
