Still here !

Hello !

Yes I am still here. . .been busy quilting graduation and wedding quilts ( 'tis the season, you know ! ) Went to my first ( and hopefully not last ) quilt retreat . . . great fun, new friends. . . finished BIRTHDAY WEEK (always fun, but exhausting ). . . Happy Birthday to Everyone, I have 6 relatives and 5 friends who's birthdays are all in a span of less than 2 weeks, and to top it off we have been in a flood area for almost 2 months here. The rivers in town are all diked up, we are on water rationing to decrease the water flowing through our sewer systems which are overloaded, we are an odd numbered house, so we can only only wash clothes on odd numbered days, and am even thankful for that, the town next to us lost their sewer system, and most evacuated, and ended up not being able to use their sewer system at all, and having porta potties set up outside all over town. I hear we are dangerously close to that. . . so we are careful how much water we are using. Very Careful. We have National Guardsmen in town patroling the dikes, and helicoptors flying over head all monitoring the dikes and dams. Needless to say, it has been very "interesting" around here. THANK YOU, NATIONAL GUARD !

I'm so glad you're OK, Beth! I was wondering what happened! I hope you don't have to go the porta potty route! What a mess! Was it your birthday, too? If so, Happy Belated Birthday!
