One year ago today!

One year ago today my town was virtually destroyed. Of course, most of the people were evacuated after having learned the lesson from Katrina. Many of the Katrina evacuees were evacuated to Orange, TX, which is where landfall was. Those poor souls had to evacuate once again. I was in North Louisiana taking care of Mom, who was recovering from triple bypass. Fortunately, my home was spared, but it was easy to make the decision to move closer to my parents. None of my friends were spared. Everyone had damage. I am now happily planted out of harm's way.


The wind is still so fierce that working (or doing anything else) outside is not an option. My motion light stayed on all night because of the wind. I don't know when it is going to end, but a cold front is supposed to arrive today......not soon enough for me!

Since I have been staying inside, yesterday I baked brownies (bad idea). Today I have been making scrapbook pages. Six more were completed today. This is my favorite one done today.
