And They Called the Wind....Florence

How Grandma O'Quilts practices  "self care"!!
A $4 bunch of Stock...I was going to get my favorite Sunflowers,
But this reminded me of my childhood in Phoenix
when we would all take a ride to Baseline road to
view acres of Stock.
Thank you, Trader Joe's.
In my grandmother's aluminum coffee pot vase.
When children sneak their I-pads under the covers to watch
U-tube in the night, the next day, the I-Pad fairy snatches them.
Lynsey's was lost for a month...Found this morning when I
went to look for scraps for potholders.
You know, it was not my fault...
The dog ate my homework.
The Queen Bee met Monday at my house.
Here is Linda's super fun quilt.

The backing from Kathy Doughty's new collection.
Potholders...saving grace for my anxiety.

ALS is a dragon to be dealt with.
My way is to poke him with a needle in revenge..
And burn him with a pot...as in potholder...stay tuned.
Just so you know....
The real reason I am a substantial woman.
It is how I was born.
Here I am...all fluffy at 4 months!!!!

Ok Ok Ok
There are other reasons too
At the end of the day...with no control in sight...
The old grandma with her grands slay Florence with candy corn.
Our dear Ms Florence is headed smack dab toward Charlotte
and my house in the woods with my dear darlings and two cats and a dog
and...me, old Grandma
We are planning a downstairs family sleepover...
TBTG my son is with us....it is supposed to be quite a ride.

We all thought when we left Miami all those years sgo, we’d escape stuff like Florence. Stay safe up there. Glad your son is with you.

Oh dear,dear fluffy,tuffy,beautiful and substanial grandma! You and your family are in my heart, my thoughts and in my "on my knees for all of you" prayers. Grab those loved ones tight and know you are surrounded by angels as big bad wolf Florence huffs and puffs awsy... your love for one another is your wall of fortitude. You can do this even if you don't like it or her one bit! Blessings to you and yours ♥️

Hope that Florence is not as bad as feared. Hope you stay safe. I am keeping an eye on the news for updates, Hugs

This is why I keep coming back to your blog, because I can hear your voice and feel you as well. Blessings Diane.

Yes you need a treadle, and I need a hand crank for long car trips! Love your baby picture! So sweet! Stay safe!

I am thinking about you, Mrs. O’Q, you & yours. I hope Ms. Florence is much less than expected (the Weather Channel does us no favors, whipping us all into a pile of worried, jangled nerves). Let us know how you are!
