We are north central Florida to the west so should be fine with this hurricane heading towards us. Ocala.
The kids have their last day of school today for the week and are off on Friday and Monday - so they can prep the schools for shelters for those who have special needs and are in mobile homes.
We will pick up any projectiles from the yard this afternoon and then will pop some sand bags to Grandma tomorrow for her back porch. We will see if my oven gets delivered tomorrow or not. I sure hope so....
We have plenty of water (bottled and will fill up our two big blue water bottles leftover from the store with our tap water on Saturday),tubs will get filled and we do have the pool!, food, candles, flashlights and batteries. Hopefully Jose will take a turn to the east and miss the USA as he is following close on IRMA's heels.
Hoping all in the path are safe.
I expect lots of board games, books read and general kid playing over the weekend while I try and get a little stitching in. Part of prepping is making sure there is handwork right?
I'll be finishing the lime green on the trip quilt and maybe adding an orange round as a nod to the RSC Challenge this month.
Plenty of hand quilting options - the trip quilt on the frame, a border of quilting needed on a little orange peel quilt and of course the dresden plates all need quilting on their blocks. Fingers crossed that power stays on, if not..... the grill will be working to cook off the freezer =).
I think we are all prepped just a waiting game now.
