We are preparing for our 1st hurricane. Growing up in tornado hell makes us not too uptight about super strong winds and torrential rain though. :) And our city is in the evacuate-TO zone, so that makes us rest a little easier too. Still...we may well lose electricity this weekend so Aaron is at the store picking up a few things.
In other non-crafty life news: Amelia is doing well. She's reached a fussy phase unfortunately, but it comes and goes. Gas bubbles and over-eating/under-eating are mostly to blame I think. I wish the camera still worked...I'd love to bore you with a dozen new pictures a day. :) I'll have to settle for a video of the older girls being little Mommies. Lydia was fresh up from a long nap. Her hairdo is funny! But she was being such a sweetie I had to tape it. Unfortunately I missed her rocking and singing to the baby just before. I hope you can hear her ok. I forgot to turn off the noisy oscillating fan. :o\
Speaking of the camera....I'm comparison shopping digicams. The Canon Powershots to be specific. Do any of you have a Powershot? I'd really love to hear any feedback on these cameras. I'm reading good things about several of the SD's and the A's. I'm looking for something less than $300 that will take good macro shots of my clay things as well as be a good point and shoot for family stuff. But I've read so many reviews I'm totally confused.
Well, it's been a few hours since I started this post. Aaron had to go to several different stores to get groceries. Most everything is sold out. He just went back to w@lm@rt at 10pm b/c they promised a new shipment of bread by 10. Every store in the area was out of bread earlier!
We are stocked up on water, non-perishable foods, a gas powered camping grill (in case we can't use the charcoal grill due to weather), we have a new manual can opener, a new corkscrew, and 2 new bottles of red wine for Mom. I'd say he did a good job covering all the important bases. LOL! Please keep a good thought for us this weekend. Let's hope IF the power goes out it's only for a short period of time!
