Good golly Miss Molly! Where did the summer go? I can hardly believe that it is the first of September already. But I'm not complaining. The kids are back in school (can I hear an AMEN!) and Fall is just around the bend.
If you are wondering if Pennsylvania was affected by Hurricane Irene, the answer is yes. We live in South Central Pennsylvania, so the effects were not as bad, but we still went without power for about 13 hours and had alot of tree limbs and debris in our yard. We were very lucky compared to some other folks, some of which are still without electric. Continued prayers for them.
And yes, we were also affected by the 5.8 earthquake, which was centered in Virginia last Tuesday. It sent shock waves all up and down the East Coast. I was doing some work in the Walmart store during the quake and was apparently so engrossed in my work, I missed the entire 30 second tremor. Now I know this may sound a little twisted, but I'm kinda bummed that I missed it, especially after hearing everyone's stories about where they were and what they were doing at that precise moment in time. I am, however, thankful that it was only a mild quake and nothing more. It was a very scary moment for some.
I'm looking forward to our Labor Day weekend getaway to Deep Creek Lake, MD. My Uncle John owns a beautiful cabin there and we will be making the 3.5 hour drive with boat in tow on Saturday. Pray for nice weather.
We stay pretty busy during the Fall months. Wait. Who am I kidding. We stay pretty busy ALL the time. There is lots going on and lots to look forward to. It is football season and since Nature Girl is a cheerleader, we will be attending all the JV football games. I just love football season!
And there you have it.....Living Life's "Less Than a Minute Update".
I will leave you all today with this wonderful group photo of my Step-Mom's family, as we celebrated her birthday this past weekend at Friendly Farms. I am pictured in the very middle back row.
Have an awesome weekend, my friends. Stay safe and have fun!
