Good Monday morning....I think! Other than being a typical, rushed, busy day...it is the beginning of a new week~and I wanted to wish all of you a fantastic week ahead. Here it is so very hot, humid and o so windy! The 3 fires still burning in Texas are about 95% contained now, but the areas are still under a SEVERE RED FLAG WARNING for the next 4 days. With the temperatures above 90 in the western portions of the state, low, low humidity and extremely dry conditions with the 20+mph sustained winds, it doesn't take long for another outbreak of wildfires. With 2.2 million acres already burned and loss of over 200 homes and some livestock....we are NOT considered a disaster area. Our Governor has asked for assistance in DEC, JAN, FEB, MAR, APR and finally received the rejection for assistance this month. The Prez is coming to our state tomorrow for a fund raising...think we ought to leave him hanging for 5 months before declining to contribute~let him see how it feels! Anyhow, we are supposed to see some relief in temps in next week or so with a chance of some scattered showers, but not to the areas in desperate need. Then we have the Mississippi flooding over it's banks big time and the tornado clean up in the south, the unusually cold wet winter still hanging on up north. We surely need a concentrated effort of prayer for this nation. I'm doing my share!
Hope all of you had a marvelous Mother's Day celebration. Me, I did what I wanted to do, made some pages for my sisters and a page for Amy/Michael's first anniversary~watched movies~played with my "girls" and read~totally relaxing day! I loved every minute of it. Here are the memories I made...hope you will be sharing yours soon!Kathy with her two sons, Jason/Jeff in a page from Raspberry Road's PansyGarden kit.My brother's daughter Sebrina with her mother Myrl in a page made from freebie by PascaleA.
