Well since all of you were praying so hard Gustav weakened in strength and I didn't have to go to Louisiana. HOWEVER... we are now watching Hanna on the Eastern Shore. If predicted correctly it will hit Florida and South Carolina. So, once again it is a wait and watch. I will unpack my bags and hope I can stay home. I know my kids and maybe hubby (LOL) will be glad to see me stay. You should have seen me trying to explain how I do things in less than an hour and what bills needed paid while I was gone. Hubby just looked at me and shook his head. I'm not quite sure he knew what all I was talking about. He just kept telling everyone I was leaving and he was going to change the locks while I was gone. He didn't tell anyone why I was leaving. So, of course my Mother believed him and got mad at him until he set her straight. My hubby quite the jokester.
I still did go shopping on Saturday for a few hours. I kept my phone nearby just in case. Our weather was beautiful and it was hard to believe what the south was going to see. We hit about 4 stores in about 5 hours with drive time. I picked up some items for my 100th post giveaway, so I can't show you those yet. Otherwise I'll show you what I got...
My favorite candle Butter Maple Syrup and yummy smelling wax dipped corn. I wanted these so bad last year.
1/2 price basket because the handle was broke. I fixed it with super glue turned it to the back and there you have it a basket. Now I don't normally do blue... but I liked the shape and the color.
I'm thinking bonnet and apron. On sale of course.
Yes knit stockings. I'm going to try to make some after Linda made some and inspired me to try.
And my candle shelf. I'm debating on having hubby drill holes to put candle in instead of having a jar sit on it.
And I bought 3 of Judy Condon's books. I can't seem to peel myself away from them. They are fabulous. I got Country on a Shoestring Of Hearth and Home and A Simpler Time . If you like Early American antiques and decorating there are great pictures in them.
Well, I must get back to the routine. Thanks everyone so much for your thoughts and prayers. You are all the bestest!!! And for those who still may be going down to the gulf to help or have family down there I will say an extra prayer for them.
