Thanks for all the Ike related well wishes. My father fared rather well. He was in an area that was told not to evacuate, so they moved his 92 year old mother in law in with them until normalcy resumes. (one less senior for the home to deal with.) Over all they fared well, getting to the potty in the pitch dark was the hardest part from what I hear.
No news on how the dogs took too it, but with enough "chicky" I am sure they were fine.
The only damage that my father saw was to some trees & the fence. A few neighbors had some roof damage. They have gas & water - which is good. I know when we lost our electricity, I was happy to have a gas stove. No electricity - they are expecting to be out for up to 2 weeks... Now that is a long time - even without Nintendo addicted kids. (The Nintendo reference probably dates me, not that we had one... We did not even have cable & when the TV broke, we survived without that for a while too.)
CSA - peaches, apples, pears, acorn squash, tomatoes (off the top of my head...) I did not take any of the parsnips (I only use those in soup & we are not having soup weather!) or bell peppers.
Baby - don't forget there is a ticker at the bottom of my page... But on Friday I get to have the 3 hour glucose tolerance test - my sugar was high on the initial screening. So I may have gestational diabetes - which could take my birth plan & throw it out the window... Ah well, healthy baby is what I have to keep thinking about...
I'll post my weekend sewing in a few. Now I need to read what you all have been up to!
