Even though I haven’t reported what’s going on, I’ve had a busy week. I no more than got my house cleaned up than we got several more inches of heavy rain, so heavy that it came in the quilt shop and I had wet carpet to deal with. This cupboard had to be pulled out so the floor could dry. All of this because I had Rick take down the gutter because it was so hard to get at to clean! So now I will have to cut down the shrubs that made it impossible to get a ladder close to the building in order to clean the gutters and have the gutters installed again. Ugh! And it’s all my fault!
It’s also time to pick the hydrangeas – nearly past time, some are already brown but that’s ok – look how many there are on the tree.
Last week I had a baptism dinner, a dental appointment, a cancer screening and friends from Bainbridge Island, WA stopped for a visit so it was a busy week. And then there was 9-11 and all those memories. We were opening a camp that morning and 4 of our campers flew out of Logan Airport in Boston. They were forced to land in Detroit where they rented a car and drove to Iowa. Roy and Connie’s cousin was Tom Burnett who was on Flight 93 and was one of the 5 guys who attacked the hijackers. I remember Diane Sawyer and Charlie Gibson reporting on Good Morning America as it all played out. Where were you on 9-11?
