There's this gal Irene that no one really likes. I hate to say it, but she just causes trouble wherever she goes. I have my Cherish Club scrapbooking group this Friday night and she's been hinting that she's going to show up. After sending out my reminder to the club members yesterday for RSVPs, I'm not getting much response. They all are pretty sure she's going to be here. I may have to cancel. All because of Irene.
Living in Florida, we are used to tracking and preparing for hurricanes. Fortunately, you never really see much panic. People calmly buy their water and canned goods, the hardware stores are busy with shoppers buying wood to block their windows, and if you're like me, you are starting to think about packing up your scrapbook albums in large waterproof containers.
The only thing different about this time is my husband is in Denver on a business trip. But it's okay. My father-in-law's senior living facility is a certified category 4 hurricane shelter, so that's where we're headed if the need arises.
So today I will join the shoppers and get my necessary supplies and have the news on all day in the background while I create in my studio.
