Stormy

Sunday, October 29, 2006

Stormy weather suited me just fine, but by 3 in the morning, the house was shaking and the babe was screaming. I have no idea how the power didn't go out, but luckily we were spared. We did lose a tree, as you can see from the photo above. It completely fell down within an hour of taking the photo. Our ocean view is enhanced by a tree's width. Stormy could also describe things with my brother, as you well know. But he called on Friday, and even though his tone was curt, he made the call. There is a small crack, an opening from which we will try to make things well again.

Mr. C and my older son went hiking and doing outdoorsy things in the 100 km/h winds, while the babe and I went shopping (yes! the Gods listened and Nova Scotia now has Sunday shopping). We sauntered through the bookstore and I bought Malika Oufkir's second book, and loaded up on books for the boys (including comics for the oldest). When we got home, I finished off my sons's new bedroom. It feels like I have been working on it forever, but it now means that he and the babe will each have their own room.

Ta-Da...

And, since Halloween is only two days away, we figured we had better start carving some pumpkins. So...Ta-Da again....And now, although it is only 8:30, it feels like 9:30 because of the g-d time change. Don't even get me started on that topic.

Here's to a good week ahead, friends.

    We started daylight savings time on Sunday morning ... bit confusing initially, but you get used to it. I like having the extra light in the evening, allows us all to do more stuff together outdoors.
    Your stormy weather is a bit frightening, although the view without that tree is spectacular.
    Hope you have a wonderful week.
    Take care, Meow

    So glad that stormy weather just bothered the tree. The older I get. the more frightened I am of storms. I guess as you grow older you don't feel invincable any more.

    That room is a dream. How lucky is your little one to have such a talented mom.

    I am happy your brother contacted you. He loves you cause he is taking those steps to keep in touch...

    Hugs,
    Connie

    Hugs,
    Connie

    Meow;
    I like the daylight savings in the spring, but it is the fall one that gets me; it is dark by nearly 5pm!

    Connie;
    Usually, I love a good storm, but this one has lasted for going on three days now! Enough with the wind! I hope your weather is warm and sunny.

    Chloe;
    You were right; he did call....I e-mailed you.
    I realized after I posted the photo of the bedroom, that there are some small details that are unfinished. I will post more again later this week perhaps. My son loves it; he is like a little prince in his own kingdom!

    We had some of that Friday! Did get a bit "breezy". Great on the phone call, it's definitely a start. Cool room!! Hate time change!! The essence of bureaucratic stupidity!!

    I really like the decorations in the bedroom Cathy. You've done a great job.

    And your brother called which is a start I guess.

    That wasn't a storm Cathy. That was the wind resistance created by my ex mother in law flying past on her broom preparing for Haloween

    Wow what a room!! l love what you did Cathy. Glad to hear that you survived that storm- it was a good one.
    Bests,xx
