well, sandy left us with very little damage, just a bunch of small branches down and leaves blown all over the porch. i was surprised at this because the wind was crazy! it sounded like a freight train rushing past the house for hours and hours, and the windows were rattling away. we have two huge maple trees that i always worry about in the wind, one right over the camper, and one over the chicken coop and the house. we've been extremely lucky with those trees. i would hate to lose them!
when i went out this morning, the clouds were beginning to break, and there was actually some sunshine in the afternoon.
this weekend i did some sewing with this sewing machine, a 1964 singer, that i got at a yard sale this summer. when i got it home i couldn't believe the great condition it was in, and it had every single attachment and the manual still in their little box! i had also figured i would have to have it worked on, but i set it up and it worked great! i'm telling you, that machine is a real work horse!! they made them to last back then, no plastic in sight! i finished the little quilt i've been working on, and i'll take pictures of it once there is some sun!
hope everybody made out o.k. in the storm!!
