Everyone is waiting for Irene.
There has been so much coverage on the news that I am sick and tired of it.
And it hasn't even hit us yet.
The rain started yesterday though.
We got some real heavy rain last night.
Didn't even know rain could come down like that.
It sounded like nails hammering in to our roof.
What I did know,
was that my hydrangeas would not be looking good after this weekend.
So I decided to bring a few in yesterday.
I don't know why I haven't done that before.
I barely cut any off, and I still got enough for several vases.
The mopheads are so big that you just need a few,
or just one, for big impact.
Decided to get some mint, basil and rosemary too into a bouquet.
Just incase I didn't feel like going outside in pouring rain to get herbs for cooking.
Or making a drink.
So, here comes thunder.
And the wind is picking up.
I hope that our big pine trees stand tall and proud through this.
I hope that our house keeps the water out.
I hope that we get to keep our electricity.
that my East Coast friends stay safe!
I better go make some coffee now while we still have power.
