Getting Ready For Irene

Well ... I think we're as ready as we're going to be.

Bruce spent the morning cleaning out the gutters ... 

... and securing the patio furniture.  Actually, I started the furniture process but had a surprise encounter with a mouse in our shed and ran screaming into the house.

I'm so helpful.

I heated up some of yesterday's Sugar 'n Spice Pancakes for breakfast this morning.

I served mine up with plain yogurt and granola - a great alternative to syrup!  Much more filling as well.

I need to keep myself busy today.  The rain has started and Bruce is at work.  I'm hoping that they close the store early and he can be home safe and sound with me.  I'm praying for everyone who is affected by Irene right now.  Be safe everyone! xoxo

p.s. I installed the commenting system, "Disqus" into my blog.  I had been thinking about it for awhile and Melissa was the latest of my blog friends to install it and she inspired me to give it a try.  I HOPE this makes it easier to comment if you aren't a blogger user (you can sign in through facebook, twitter, yahoo, google, etc.).  You can also comment as a guest - you just need to click guest and put in your email (so I can reply to comments) - but your email will NOT be published.

If y'all hate it, I'll get rid of it!


  1. Stay safe, Sarah! I'll say a prayer that Bruce gets home early and safely, too.

  2. Cool!! My only wish is that it had something pretty instead of the sillouette of that guy LOL. Oh-well! So far i like the way you can reply & it automatically shows up here.

  3. That's what I like about it, too! There are definitely times when I get questions that I think other people would like to see the answers to - so when I answer via email, it doesn't show up here.

  4. love the top picture! lol
    be safe!! :)

  5. Hahaha, it's hysterical, right? He was hanging out of our guest room. :)

  6. Sending good, safe thoughts your way.

    It just started pouring here in PA ... getting nervous now that the storm's picking up!

  7. I think the hype is getting me more wired up than anything else!
