Happy Monday Folks!
BULLsEYE! Hurricane Leslie is set to hit us early tomorrow. It's unusual for us to see anything remotely close to a hurricane as they usually veer off into the Atlantic somewhere. But nevertheless, it's coming and we spent the entire afternoon taking in all the garden furniture and anything that's not blotted down. I don't think people would be so worried if it weren't for the fact that we got hit a couple of years ago with Hurricane Igor. Flooding, loss of power, downed trees, wash-outs... It's still fresh in peoples minds and people are going ape-shit crazy with fear. Personally, I wasn't around for Igor having opted to tromps around Europe and attend my Masters course in Italy. I find it hard to relate and people keep telling me that I'm not taking it seriously. Either way, the city is on high alert and I've got a sneaking suspision that there won't be work tomorrow. Not that I object to this. Maybe I'll get in a little Judy Garland and the crowd from the Wizard of OZ - one of my ALL TIME FAVOURITE MOVIES!!! :)
Another storm day activity option is also the bottle wine! Lots of wine. Myself and the BF have been hard at work over the past couple weeks encouraging our wine attempts to ferment. I think we've had success with his batch of wine (mine not so much). Anyway, it is now time to bottle! So exciting. Wish me luck scrapping of the all those labels - we may be doing our part for mother nature by reusing our old wine bottles but I'm certainly NOT looking forward to scrapping the labels and glue off these things!
On another note I won a give away by Sarah over at Sarah in Stitches. This package travelled quite the distance and I was EVER so happy when it arrived :) I love everything. The french charts - good thing I have an awesome french BF to translate for me! The beautiful box, which is now being used to house my specialty flosses. The fabric is so cute and I just LOVE the pin keep not to mention the bracelet. Thank you sooooo much Sarah for the generous giveaway!!!
Ciao for now!
Hoping I don't drown tomorrow!
