Stormy Night

There is no way that we are going to be missed tonight with looking at the radar. They are saying hail and high winds. I hope they are wrong, but probably not.
It just means a night of not sleeping very well because the severe weather watch is in effect until 3 A.M.
What is wrong with the younger generation? They want a paycheck, but they don't want to earn it,  you see them standing around, talking on their cell, or text messaging. They can be text messaging the person across the room from them.
I always believed that you did your job the best that you can. Oh, well, I guess they don't care now days.
I started using some new type of fabric that you copy your picture and then peeled the back sticking it to whatever you wanted to embroidery. I must say I am not overly impressed with it. I think I will go back to my light box. It is hard to get the need through it. Maybe it would work better on a different kind of material.
My grandson and his puppy Abby waiting for story time. I think it will have to be another night. Abby sleeps on his bed right beside him as though she is his protector. He has a lot of fun with them. I wish she had gotten a picture of him reading to his daddy. He is so ready for school to start when he can go all day. He has really enjoyed summer school.
Well I hope you all are staying as cool as possible. Be sure to drink plenty of water if you are out in the heat. Have a great week.

I hope you did not get hit with severe storms, Shirley. I saw them on the weather channel and because of the rotation of the whole storm they were watching for tornadoes. That system is moving in our direction, but usually by the time they make it up to our part of Michigan they have worn themselves out and we just get rain. We are to have scattered thunderstorms today.
The picture of your grandson and dog is so cute! It is wonderful that he is doing so well with his reading and school. That is sooooo important today, more than ever! The kids of today do not know what a world they will be facing when they have to get out into the work force!
Sometimes I find a product that is supposed to make things easier and better and it doesn't. The old fashioned way of doing things is usually the best!

Keep cool and stay safe.

Hi Shirley,
Well I so hope you do not have the storms that we had last night.
It was a terrific hail storm with 70-90 mile an hour winds. Lots of damage and broken windows for so many in my area with down fences etc. We are so thankful as our home was spared from damage this time around. More rain expected tonight again.
Love your grands pic with his darling dog. Too cute.

Stay safe tonight.
Hugs from Texas, Celestina Marie
