My picture was taken at Sunset and you wonder if it will storm again tonight. We had a very quick moving one go through last night. It didn't last long and depending on where you were at if you had any damage. They said that the wind was 40 miles an hour. 
I got off work at 4 because the guys wanted to go home. I still had work to do, but you know what, if I get my statements done on Monday, If not I will finish them on Tuesday which will be the first day of May.
How many remember making May baskets and hanging them on doors when you were a child. You opened the door and there was your May basket.  The roses are blooming and the peonies are in full bloom. I guess if you decorate graves you are going to have to use artificial ones because everything we have always used will be gone. 
My adventure started off early to go to breakfast. We had to change our mind about where we ate because the first stop they had no electricity for some reason. It was fun going through the lights at busy intersections without them working. Everybody was courtesy.  Oh yes, the mail recovery unit found the checks that I was missing. I was happy about that. 
We went to the quilt shop today to get the needles she had ordered for me and look at all of the pretty fabric. They have expanded their shop and had several rooms to go through. I found the border for my grandson's pillowcases I am working on. The material had horses and long horn cattle. They had a chair for my hubby to sit in while I looked around. They are so friendly and helpful. Customer Service makes it much more fun to shop.
I found my new shoes. They are Sas "Maria ". They are made in the USA. Really comfortable on the feet. I haven't found any new slacks that I like yet plus he was getting tired.. I did get my new purse I ordered from E_bags.  I like the E-bags that fit over the handles of the wheel chair and are reasonable priced. We went to Joann's he wanted some yarn to finish his afghan that he is working on at the moment when he feels like it. 
Enough of my rambling for one night. You all have a wonderful weekend. We are to have rain again. Hopefully no storms. Take care.

It sounds like you have had some bad storms. We've had rain and we need it! Not much is new here. Just a slow weekend. I'm glad you found your shoes and hope they are comfy! Have a great evening, Shirley and big hugs!

So much of your post is a lovely adaptation to what is... a powerful remember of the importance of going with the flow.

I am glad you got some shoes and some yarn and had a nice little get away. It is always nice when you feel well enough to get quite a bit of stuff done.

I am so glad that we don't usually get bad storms here. They are scary.

We always went and picked Mayflowers on the first day of May in the woods in PA. It was a wonderful time of life. I hope you have a wonderful Sunday, Shirley. xo Diana

That sounded like a fun outing.

Hi, Shirley, it sounded like you and hubby had a very nice day. I love looking at fabric. I don't sew at all, but I could spend hours looking at material and dreaming about what it could be made into. I hope you have had a good week. The weekend is just around the corner now! Blessings to you~ Vicki

Surprise! Bet you thought I'd never pop in. Well, Everyone's asleep..yes it's 6p, and they're asleep. We went shopping yesterday and today...storms came...not much sleep...I stayed up here in case electric went out. Ate a little early in case storms start up again like they're supposed to.
