Since I’m spending the day in front of my computer following flood updates and not accomplishing anything else, I thought I would blog.
Sorry for the boring photos and so many of them, humor me. I was pinspired to make some reusable produce bags. Can you see Miss Nosy Knickers having a sniff and again after I scolded her? I used tulle, sewed a double seam, and added a bit of stretchy cord along the top to help keep things inside. A half yard of tulle will make 4 medium sized bags. I think my total cost was about 85 cents. If only I had remembered to use my Hobby Lobby coupon!!
As I mentioned, we are in the midst of a flood event here. My first ever. Our neighborhood is on a little hill for which I am very thankful. Roads in every direction around us are closed and flooded at this point. I did venture out for cat food when it looked like we were well on our way to this very situation. The evacuation traffic was horrible but it’s one thing to be stranded for a few days, but to be stranded with three hungry cats…..
Our particular bit of the flooding has it’s own hashtag on social media if you are interested it’s #stvrainflood and another #longmontflood .
There is a rumor they are about to turn off the water. I’ve filled all my large cooking pots and pitchers and the bathtubs. I think I should go bake something while I can.
PS – I think I should begin a list entitled : Extraordinary Things that Happen When My Husband is out of Town
PPS – It’s still raining.
