Weekends-After the Storm

Through the night hurricane Irene arrived in northeastern PA.  We live about 2 1/2 hours from NYC (with traffic being manageable).  When I went to bed, I really did not think much about how it would affect us.  So it was a big surprise to have 40 mph winds and lots and lots of rain.  

My husband and I took a walk with Frodo after dinner (remember we are now empty nesters) and I brought my camera.  

My weekend was filled with gratitude because:

-we fit everything in the Accord when we moved our son (pictures to follow tomorrow!)
-we had a really quiet laid back weekend.  With a revolving conversation of "what do you want to do?"  and the answer "I don't know, what do you want to do?"
-I have received some texts from the kids with snippets of their lives.  Enough to know everything is okay but not enough to satiate my curiosity.  
-I have so much time to knit like a demon possessed.
-AND most of all I only had two loads of laundry this weekend instead of four or five loads :D

  1. Glad you are doing well. I'm still trying to reach my sister' {Va.}; I think their power is out. How are you doing with the cooking for only two? I am still having trouble learning to cook for just four! xx

  2. I'm glad you are all well up there! My dad and stepmom were relieved they didn't have too bad of damage in Delaware. Chase and I were glued to the tv yesterday watching everything unfold.

    So glad you were able to move your son to school in the comforts of a/c! Looking forward to your post on the adventure.

  3. The only thought about my kids growing up and eventually leaving that doesn't terrify me is that some day I'll have so much less laundry to do!

    Glad you're okay!

  4. Good to know you weren't hit terribly hard! What fun to have unlimited knitting time... at least for now!

  5. so glad you only had minimal damage! and yay for a successful moving weekend and ample knitting time :)

  6. Glad there was no serious damage at your place! If you get too lonely, I'd send my almost 5 year old over to keep you company a while...he'd be a good Frodo herder ;-)
