Well, still here!!! The tornados didn't blow us away..
Just missed us...
But I will say, it was a nail biting nite, Tuesday, I didn't sleep much.
Was really worried about all my animals at the vet clinic.
Thanks for all of you that sent e-mails to check up on us.
The house I live in, is pretty new, about 5 years old.
The old house was actually picked up during a tornado and dropped into the basement.
Which is not normal, the tornado usually will take it away.
The previous owners were on the stairs when it happened, so that was too close for comfort and sold the house to us.
Last year the tornados tore thru our local towns, it was just horrible, the destruction and all the animals who were lost...
I am franticly getting ready for CHA
. Will be leaving tomorrow.
As much as I hate leaving the homestead, it is vital that I do so professionally.
I am a homebody and wish I didn't have to leave, but the upside is I get to see all my wonderful friends who not only are my art buddies, but animal lovers!!!
and I have already been plotting out food places we want to eat at:)
Thai for sure!!!
This is one of my favorite pictures I took of Claudine
