fresh tomatoes from the garden, mozzerella cheese drizzled with balsamic vinegar...
and a warm peach pie, made by the dear neighbor lady and delivered to us. It tasted so good! What a kind gesture on her part.
This afternoon, our daughter discovered some exciting finds at the local Goodwill store. The dessert plates above, were one of those finds. Lucky her!
Another find was this battery operated Barney. He danced, sang, and laughed and he cost $2.00. The little ones were so entertained, and spent the evening playing with this purple friend.
Who would have thought that $2.00 could bring such joy:)
How many people who went through this storm, will hold thoughts of a dancing Barney in their 2011 storm memories?
I got to spend time with my little buddies. They will have no recollection of "Irene" years from now. Not necessarily on this picture, but they are looking more alike than ever.
Speaking of "Goodwill"...our oldest grandson made quite the find today, with these brown plaid slacks. He promises to wear them during the first days of his senior year, this week. Always, a trend setter in his own right:) I told him that my dad had a pair just like them about 30 some years ago. We will see if he actually does wear them:)
As we drove home, we found ourselves wondering what it would be like for us in the overnight hours, when the storm will be close to us. Everyone is stocking up on groceries and water. Now we watch and wait. My heart goes out to those who have and will face the brunt of this storm.
As I lit my candles this evening, I heard that over one million people on the East Coast are without electricity tonight and many have experienced far reaching affects.
I am so thankful for everything tonight, especially God's loving care over us, through it all.
It certainly is proving to be an interesting week.
