Battening down the hatches...

...and preparing for Hurricane Sandy to hit here, sometime today or tomorrow.
If it really will, or not, I guess remains to still be seen.
I am spending my lazy Monday day off with knitting, hot chicken broth, bread baking, writing some notes out, washing laundry, tea drinking, editing pictures, and reading around here.

“The rain set early in tonight,
The sullen wind was soon awake,
It tore the elm-tops down for spite,
And did its best to vex the lake:"

“It takes a real storm in the average person's life to make him realize how much worrying he has done over the squalls.”


  1. We are preparing as well, here. Right now we are getting lots (and lots) of rain!!! I pray you all stay safe and dry! :)

  2. Praying you are all safe and that the storm passes without event. Stay safe,


  3. Praying for all of your lovely family.

    I can't believe how big this storm is for even we are having 35 mph winds. Lake Michigan is under gale force warnings.

    I made homemade fried chicken nuggets and roasted fall veggies for dinner. There is nothing like good smells from the kitchen to make one feel cozy when the winds are blowing outside.

    Now I must set the dinner dishes to soaking. Victoria was on my chair first and is not willing to budge an inch so I write sitting on the very edge of my own chair. It is a sign from God... finish your work before play! ;)

  4. Your day sounds perfect to me, I believe we'll have one like that soon too. :o)

  5. So sorry about your cold...praying for everybody out east!!! I've always said "buttoning down the hatches"...LOL! Maybe I've had it wrong! :P

  6. Hope all is well, at your home. I have been praying for all. My sister in NJ had a tree come through a bedroom wall. Terrifying, but they are fine. In Toronto, we have had steady rain and some wind, nothing as bad as others have experienced, though.

  7. I hope you and your family are well. Please write as soon as you can, our prayers are with you.


  8. Hope your family made it through the storm safely, Rosie! Please do give us an update soon.
