the wind blew, the skies dumped buckets of water, we all had a great time

Hanging out at the yurt (for a good feed) last night with friends. We were out on the deck bbq’ing, and the skies got ominously dark, then came the lightning, thunder, wind, and rain. So we boogied inside… not wanting to be the tall things in a big field and all.

Did we close the window/walls before the rain? Of course not. And a lot of water poured in, so two of us ran out. It was like stepping under Niagara Falls. Except there was lightning. H had to use the aluminum ladder to get the higher windows. We survived…

But check out what the wind did,

eh-yuh, that’d be the toilet

However, the bbq sauce stayed upright bbqsauce

They also have a tent up, it didn’t survive the storm. DH says toilet paper is harder to tear.

Molly’s mum, Molly Bee Herself!, and me

And that wicked, evil, wonderful woman left me a Firecracker chocolate bar. O-M-G, this is incredible. I think I’m totally addicted. Can I say that after just one? Love that popping hot feeling… I did some research and see that I can get their products at Pier 1. You know I’m going there today!

more about the quilt

Auntie asked for pictures of me and the quilt, so I sent here these,

bwa ha ha ha

I did send some with my face, with the corner folded… but they’re all really crappy fuzzy pictures, so I guess I’ll be taking some more.

knitting news

The scarf is coming along fine. I’ll try to blather about it in ravelry. Since I don’t have as much time to sit and knit as I’d like, I find myself thinking about the next project, and the next one, and the next one…

    Once again I am blown away by the quilt. Glad you all survived the storm. Someone went up on an aluminum ladder? Sounds like a candidate for a Darwin award…

    Well I’m glad the BBQ sauce stayed upright! :-)
    Hopefully, it wasn’t too big of a mess in the port-a-potty – ICK!

    So cool that you met Molly Bee in person! And love the tipped over porta potty photos – a night to remember, indeed…
