I have a very good friend that lives many miles away that is dealing with a medical issue at the moment. I thought she might like a cute card to cheer her up. I think I surprised her and she said that it did just that. Get well soon sweetie!
Now to the comedy portion of the blog for this week. I am a huge CHICKEN when it comes to thunder and lightning storms. I am terrified. Thankfully we just don't get many here in the valley of Oregon. That was until last night. I knew when I got up in the morning and saw those stinking clouds I was in trouble. (at least the storm waited until after the ScrappyDew Hangout on Google+ was over) About 9:12 pm (yes, I looked at the clock) it started. Just heat lightning at first and then the BOOMERS started about 45 minutes later. Wasn't bad, I could handle this. But when the power blinked and the house rattled I went into panic mode. Where can I hide....can't get under the bed. Plugging my ears just made my head and fingers hurt. THEN I remember I saw in the garage a set of noise cancelling ear phones (like the ones you use on a firing range). Slapped those puppies on and magically the boomers didn't seem so scary anymore. Of course this is after 3 hours of trying to stay calm. This danged storm lasted until just before 4 am. Of course then my kitty Spooky decided it was time for her to eat and got me up at 6:30 am. Gang, I was falling asleep in my lunch. Took a 3 hour nap this afternoon and all is well at home again. Still keeping an eye out on the NOAA radar for any threat coming at us for tonight but so far so good.
So what's happening in your neck of the woods? Any cool tips to share? Leave some love or a comment and I will quickly get right back to you!
Bright blessings, Jana
