Middle of April already?

Boy, the time sure seems to be flying past here lately! Tax deadline is already here and Easter is next Sunday....1/3 of this year is already history!
Surely glad all those severe spring storms have moved out of here, we had 5 tornados (1 EF-0 and 4 EF-1) lots of LARGE hail damage and lots and lots of wind damage. Not too much of the much needed moisture though and what rain did fall, the wind has already taken it away and has caused lots of wildfires 90 miles west of us. More than 25k acres have burned, 30+houses gone and over 200 homes evacuated. The smoke was almost choking here, cannot imagine what it was like there. Lots of power outages from lines being blown down in the area too! Those roofers and dent removers are working overtime.
Yesterday was the most perfect day ever...the wind finally stopped blowing the new leaves and blooms off, it was not hot, not humid, no fires burning to smell the smoke, just gorgeous. I weeded out some crabgrass, cleaned up other's trash from the yard preparing to mow the grass....NOPE...darn lawnmower will not start. O well, I played with my potted flowers, you know...watering, food and cleaning out the dead stuff from them. Felt good about all being cleaner looking except the grass being mowed and edged.
This morning I thought I would scrap a few pages and chat a little before the races start. So here are my pages. Still trying to learn all the tricks for Gimp. I used a freebie from Miss Linda and a couple from Raspberry Road. Of course all the photos I snagged from facebook accts....LOL! Hope y'all all are safe from this wicked weather and that you are very busy making memories to share with all of us later. Chat more later~Luv, MatGorgeous Maggie
