Hail storm

Friday was a nice warm day. I worked in the yard and cleaned raised beds and added some fresh garden soil. That night, I hear my phone ding with a weather alert warning of large hail and high winds. I have never seen hail that size in my life. We are waiting to have a roof looked at but we were lucky not to have the damage others did. A lot of my friends had glass busted out on their cars and holes in their siding. I feel sorry for any animal that had to be hit by the hail! But between the hail & corona virus, i hope 2020 doesnt get any worse.

March 2020

March has been a decent month so far! Nice temperatures and last week we had plenty of sunshine! My daffodils have begun to bloom around my yard and even one crocus.
I got two quilts back from Rooster Creek. The camper quilt, was quilted with paw prints! I love it! And the other one Just Add Sugar, she did a geometric shapes. Very adorable too!
And today my friend and I made a trip to Missouri Star Quilt Company. Not that I needed any more fabric but I found some I felt I needed to add to my stash. And if I have to be quarantined, I guess I will have a lot to work on! I hope and pray all the corona virus goes away, for good, and soon!

February 2020

January brought us colder temperatures and snow. This first day of February brought us 40+ degrees, sunshine & daffodils coming up. I put up the few Valentine's decorations I have after i finished a quilt top this morning. I took the camper quilt & another one i had, to be quilted, at Rooster Creek. I'm looking forward to see what design, Teresa Cuno, the owner, picks out for me. And tomorrow is Superbowl Sunday. The Kansas City Chiefs made it, for the 1st time in 50 years! My husband is making chilli & in making meatballs. The stores will be packed with the excitement of our beloved Chiefs. I am not a football fan but i like the commercials. And J-Lo is the halftime show.  Other then that, I'd find something else to watch.

Happy New Year

This has been an unusably warm winter so far. The week before Christmas we had snow. Christmas Day was in the 60's and my sister and I sat on my mom's deck in the warm sunshine. And today, Mid Missouri is under a flash flood watch. We have had thunder & lightning today. Right now there is no rain and the temperature is 60. Made for some awesome fog on the Missouri River. But tomorrow they are calling for sleet and snow! No wonder I am sick but as they say, if you don't like the weather, stick around for a bit. Wishing everyone a fantastic 2020! I hope to take some fantastic photo this year especially in June after a cruise.

December 18, 2019

 Last Sunday and Monday, we got a little snow in central Missouri. Just enough to make the roads slick and the dead landscape a pretty white. As I was on my way to work this morning, I saw we had a fog hovering over the snow. I drove down to the boat access on the Missouri River and snapped a couple photos. It was a beautiful sunrise shinning through the fog. I wish I had used my camera but all I had was my cellphone. The snow will be gone soon and the temperatures will be back up to the 60s next week. I love the snow and always hate to see it melt.

Fulton's Holiday Open House

My husband & I like Fulton a lot. Fulton has great restaurants, adorable old houses with lots of charm & 2 great universities.  Tonight I wanted to see the Holiday Open House on the brick district. We went early to eat at one of our favorite places called Beks. After dinner, we walked around and looked at the Christmas decorations and enjoyed the Christmas music.
