Are you ready for the weekend? Do you have a mini vacation planned ? I was so ready for time to go home tonight. It has been a long hectic week and I was glad to see it come to an end. We got everything taken care of and have the lumber setting on the ground for a big project that is suppose to start this next weekend. We were happy that our supplier had it so that they wouldn't have to wait. Some people can be very impatient. Our plans so far for the weekend will be My great niece's wedding this Saturday evening with a dinner-dance following the ceremony. I made them a set of tea towels for their wedding present. I need to get back to doing some to sell. My Halloween ones are turning out pretty neat that I am making for my daughter-in-law to give as a shower gift. I have my first craft show the first weekend in November. My daughter-in-law and I will do it together. She was going to take a few days of vacation to have some me time and work on crafts that she wanted for the show. She and my son do wood working. I probably will do one craft show with my grandson. It is a good way to spend quality time with him.
With all the damage from the hurricane, the floods, the drought, the earthquakes and the fires will we ever return to normal. Do foreign countries offer to return some of the money that we have given when they had a disaster? I don't think there will ever be enough money to pay for everything that some people thinks we should. I just wish they would figure out a way to send water like they do other products to the areas that really need the water. We have pipelines running across our countryside for oil and gasoline, why not water.
I am quite sure some people would have loved to send water to Texas to help them. After being out of your house for over two months, and can't really get in to see how much damage there is would really be hard to take. I don't know how well I would be able to handle it if I was in their shoes. When you look across, the fields the crops are gone and it just looks like a big lake. They keep saying the river is going down, but I can't really see the difference as of yet. The air guard must think it is because they are returning things that they had moved to higher ground. They have even brought some of the C-130"s back to the base.
Well I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. If you travel, be safe. It may not be your driving, but the one coming from the other direction.
