Praise the Lord Aunt Emmer

(I have no idea who Aunt Emmer is. It is an expression used by my grandmother and my mother to express gratitude for seemingly inconsequential things)....

Anyway, I'm baaaccck!

Wouldn't you know, the first time in over two weeks that I have access to the internet, and can announce that I am still alive and fairly well, blogger decides to do maintenance work on their site?

We evacuated two weeks ago today. We returned home October 1st. We have roof damage, two cedar trees down, and a messed up wooded fence, but other than that, we are surviving. We still have no electricity at our house. My parents got theirs back yesterday evening so naturally (duh!!), we are sleeping (and computing) at their house where it is cool. But (praise the Lord, Aunt Emmer!)....we have a cool front coming through tomorrow!

We have been blessed and we have so much to be thankful for but things are such a mess around here and will be for some time. It has been a lot to absorb.

I'll probably be posting sporadically since I am at my mom's house. Even when we get electricity, I still won't have Internet access. Mine is through the phone line and we accidentally ripped the line loose when cleaning up the front yard. November 2nd is the tentative date for repair. I don't know when I will catch up on my blog-reading. I am anxious to see what has been going on in my little corner of blogdom.


  1. I am just so glad that you are alright!!! ~applaudes~ I am sorry that there is damage but I am thankful that you are okay.

  2. YAY! You're BAck!! Glad you're OK!!!!! :o)

  3. I am so glad to hear you fared relatively well and welcome back....and we missed you! Hooray!

  4. Have been check in here. Good to read that all is okay.......

  5. Its great to hear from you. I was really beginning to wonder...

    Best of luck with the clean up!

  6. haven't been here before (I think) and yet I find someof my favourite people hanging out here. Why wasn't I invited to the party? Grrr

    Sorry to hear about the damage and lack of internet but glad you are ok.

    I loved this bit on the side :I had questions. I had a few answers. I had them all neatly arranged and matched up in a pretty little box. I dropped the box and everything got all mixed up. But it's okay, really.

    It really IS okay. What I've seen here so far, I've liked!

    Be blessed :)

  7. Thank goodness!!! I was beginning to wonder if you were all right! So glad that the damage was just to stuff.


Don't just sit there staring, say something!
