    Well, everyone up and down the eastern seaboard is getting drenched today. What are you going to do? I am going to get to the sewing room if I can get off here long enough to have breakfast and straighten up a bit. Want to get more done on my DGD's quilt for Christmas; plus I have a "date" for dinner. My dear neighbor across the street is a widower. His wife & I were great sewing buddies. So we are going to Red Lobster for dinner. Have a good day everybody :-) :D :lol:

    We are praying the rain will come south! I'm so sorry for all the rain and flooding along the east coast.

    I will be finishing up things and getting ready for my quilt retreat next week. I'm so excited!!

    That is so wonderful about your date!! I know you'll have a wonderful time!

    We just had a little shower this morning and it is supposed to be clear through the weekend so I'm having my yard sale this weekend. I'm dreading all the work but we want this stuff out of our storage building so bad. I finally decided "less is more" a few years ago and have been collecting and storing things that need to go in the yard sale. Anything that doesn't sale is going to be taken to our local donation center. I want the clutter GONE! ;)

    You could send us some rain, because we sure haven't had much moisture at all this year, not even in the form of snow.

    What is rain? Is that the strange wet stuff I have read about that supposedly falls from the sky?

    This has been one of the driest summers I can remember so I would gladly take some of that rain the east coast is getting.

    It has been raining here all morning. Went to exercise at Curves, stopped for groceries and now sitting here reading. Have a volleyball and soccer game to attend at 4 if not cancelled. Having grandkids for dinner and the evening while parents go to a concert at the new Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh. Hopefully I can get a few more rows sewn on my grandsons quilt I'm making for his birthday in 2 weeks. Have to hide it before he comes though. Actually we need the rain so I won't complain as long as it quits by tomorrow night for the football game our older grandson will be playing.

    We had over 5" come down last night and things are very soggy. (Just outside Norfolk, VA)
    Currently at the office but many are working from home due to flooded road ways.

    it's raining-at times a nice soft patter on the roof, other times a downpour. we need it terribly! I'm working in the office by myself right now, just had some blueberry toast and making a cup of chai green tea.

    Busy day- end of the month and we still will have a closing late today. Looking forward to tomorrow for "clean up" and assessing the files in process. Also interviewing a new employee- there's work to be done and I've maxed everyone out!

    have a great day all!

    We have bright sunshine here in Michigan. I went to Bible study this AM but when I came home I picked tomatoes. The last of the red ones-most will go into a soup for a gathering Saturday. I also picked all of my green ones which I will can green tomato mincemeat. OHH such a yummy recipe. I pulled up the vines and put them on the compost pile. Now I need to get to canning-but I would rather wait. Terrible! :roll:

    I washed all my windows. Probably the last time this year it will be nice enough to get outside and do them. Trying to get up from the computer and go and finish up a quilt. The sun is beautiful and warm today.

    It`s been a lovely sunny day here in The New Forest in the U.K. My daughter and I went for a long walk in the Forest and checked some of our ponies. The Autumn colours are just beginning.
