When Nature Strikes
So, there was some severe weather here in Central Texas on Friday night, 3/25/05. Thought I'd share some photos:
This is the siding and window on the second story of the west side of our home that took the brunt of the wind and hail.
Two of our cars got really banged up, though no broken windows thank God. I find it odd that the minivan and the truck that were out there took almost zero damage. Both are much older model vehicles; maybe that's why?
There are more pictures than these in that photo album if you wanna live some of our March Madness vicariously. :P
On the knitting front: The kimono's back piece is finished and on a stitch holder and the left front is looking good. Though, I'm so exhausted today from yesterday's yard clean-up and headachey from the changing weather that I keep reading the pattern wrong and getting confused, so we'll see about further progress this week. And now that Ana showed me a last few steps in plugging her camera's memory card into the computer, uploading and editing photos, and mucking around with her webpage's galleries, I hope to have more and better WIP and FO photos posted here.
Someone encourage me to finish my damned Soho turtle. Or my grandmother's hat. Each involve easily less than an hour of work, and I want to start a Debbie Bliss baby tanktop, or another stuffed toy, but I'm not allowing myself until I finish something. I just can't seem to take my hands off of that Echo cotton. I love it.
My grandmother made some chicken soup today and sent it over with my dad. It's my favorite soup in the world, tied with the beef soup she makes that's the same recipe just different type of meat falling off the bone, along with cabbage, rice, carrot, celery, cilantro, lime juice... Yanno, there will definitely be some perks to having them living so nearby.
