Donatables Done

Not the Rubbermaid tote of donatables, but it IS a Rubbermaid tote of our stuff!      And yes, you have seen this pic before.     I have to start recycling the pix, just like the posts!

 

slob, humor, DD1's things

Rubbermaid tote.

 

Last Monday, about 3 weeks ago now, I worked on 4  kitchen cabinets.       Going thru and de-cluttering, and evaluating expiration dates on the food.     Do you know how hard that stuff is to read???       My eyes almost gave out, before the rest of me did!

It wore me out!!


But at the end of the afternoon, I had a half of a huge Rubbermaid tote full to donate! And some food to give away.

I felt so wonderful, to get that much done in a day!!        Yes, the feeling of accomplishment, and pride was there, underneath the exhaustion!

Caffeine Cackles

Okay, since I’m having a media storage crisis, which can’t be fixed right now, (I’m broke), I have to just reblog old stuff. Which I was already doing anyway, so – yay!!

Here’s an oldie, but a goodie!!

Sip some caffeine, of your choice, and have some cackles!!

(Sorry no pix.     Refer to first paragraph.)

Pre Preps

Pre preps for imminent, irritation Irma are on going this weekend.  I’m writing this on my phone Sunday night, as my desktop apparently decided it was time to desert this earthly travail.    Argh!!          (update:   Monday it came back to life, after I gave it mouth to USB port resuscitation!)

Talk about frustration!   How am I supposed to blog about hurricane preps on my tiny little phone keyboard??   Vewwy vewwy cawefully!!

Anyway, I took pix, and since I’m on my phone, they should be easier to insert.    Let’s hope!!

Water is always a first essential.    Got it covered.

slob, humor, water stored in the tub

Fresh water- yay!

slob, humor, Water Bob

My new best friend!

TY PopPop!              That’s for drinking.

Second essential is potty. Got that covered:

(I was gonna take a pic of all the tp, but you know what it looks like!)

slob, humor, water for flushing

Flush water- sooooo important!!

Next is food.

Brownies!!         Then peach Coke- of course!           I think that’s all we need.       ( I have lots of other food, it’s just not that important!   lol)

Lights:

slob, humor, flashlight, lantern

Lights- check!


DD1 took babies out of state.  So I know they’re safe.   DD2 was already out of state, so all’s good there.

XH had to evac his mobile, so I demanded asked him over here.   After all, somebody’s got to piggyback my fat butt outta here if the flooding is too bad!   Plus he has a 4×4 truck!

slob, humor, me and XH

Us!     Partying like it’s Hurricane Charley!

(He certainly seems to be happy to be here, doing all the prep work, doesn’t he???)


PopPop is safe at his work.

Grandmama’s building IS a shelter.  So she’s all good.   She’s having a sleepover with friends, in the laundry room!

Sister’s house is Cat 4 rated, so her and kids are safe.   Bubba and Shirley have a sturdy block house, so they’re good.

Let’s see who did I forget??   Oh yeah, Rose was already overseas, so she’s good.   And neighbor Jeannette went to a safe place as well.

All’s well that ends well, for us.    God protected us!!  

Praying for the millions still without power, and that lost their homes.

And still praying for Texas, and Louisiana.

Thanks everybody for all the prayers for us!!

An Irma post.

#1        #2- Pre Preps, this one 

Imminent Irma

I’m writing this Sat. On my phone.

Irma is on her way to try to huff and puff and blow my house down.

Go away, big bad wolf!

As soon as I can, I will log back in and let ya know how it goes.

Hopefully, she will fall for the chimney trick, like the story wolf did!!

Dolly, I’ll be texting ya for a hurricane recipe!

Love y’all!

Having a hurricane party here. Brownies and peach Fanta, yeah!!

slob, humor, hurrican

Any hurricane, ever.

Update: All good!    We never lost power, but lots of others did.  Haven’t heard of any lost lives yet, except that teenage surfer, who went out surfing.   😦                                          We have a small living room leak, in a place they had previously patched.  (I think that part is funny!!)        Lots of big limbs down in backyard.

God did a miracle, turning Irma, and weakening it!!          Thank you, God!!
