I did do some stitching last night and got caught up on my SanManville Hip to Be Square SAL. However, I may change a couple of the parts. My birthday twin, Barb called me today and she is thinking of changing the orange juice to an ort jar and the quince to a quilt. I like her ideas and told her I'll probably borrow them for my piece.

Today is my 61st birthday and it will be remembered as me getting through my first hurricane. Yep, Hurricane Ike came through, but I live inland enough that it wasn't too bad in my area. Our winds gusted at 51 mph, had approximately 3 - 5 inches of rain, and have lots of tree limbs all over the ground. Even my power didn't go out. Wow, I was very fortunate indeed, especially when I see all the devastation in Galveston & the other coastal towns. So I spent today putting all my plants and patio furniture back outside after sweeping up all the leaves & tree branches from my patio. Not exactly how I would have chosen to spend my birthday, but I'm certainly not complaining. I'm very grateful to have gotten through this hurricane with hardly any problems and I thank everyone for their kind words, thoughts & prayers for me during this time.
