Well, it's still windy but over for Philly...

Hey everyone! What a mess and we were lucky here north of Philly! Seems the heaviest hit around 2:30AM and my electricity went out around 3AM. Very windy but I'm pleased to say other than me without electricity for 15 hours and Ma's basement flooding my family has come through this very well!

My thoughts are with the folks that are still struggling with the situation and some of the pictures on TV are heartbreaking. If you're warm and dry in your home please thank God, hug your kids and appreciate this day.
Take care:@)

  4. I am glad it wasn't too bad for you! Is Earl still sporting his baggie? I was thinking about you today cause I made your lemon zucchini muffins but turned them into doughnuts. Awesome! I also did the baked beans, but it looks like we are going to have those for dinner tomorrow night. Boy those take a long time! Thanks for sharing the recipes!

  5. Thanks for the update, Lynn. Glad you got through this with no more problems than you did have. I do thank God for the beautiful days we've been having lately. I have a lot to be grateful for.
    Blessings, Beth
    p.s. Lynn, I invite you to participate in my next party - same day as yours - "Travels Near And Far." It can be about a big trip, or a visit to a place of interest right in your area. And I know Philly has a lot you could brag on! I was there many years ago and had a fun time.
    p.p.s. Love your "some of my favorite kitchen toys" widget. That's very cool!

  17. Blessings! I'm glad your and yours are okay. How scary to go thru a hurricane. I live right on the Gulf of Mexico, but you know they always seem to veer off and away from our coast (knocking on wood). I'm sending prayers for those in need.
