Is anyone else cold? Given last year’s brutal winter I know it makes me seem like a huge crybaby to whine about highs in the fifties but I don’t care!!! It’s September! It’s still officially summer! It should be sunny and warm during the day and just a bit brisk at night! It should be perfect right now! Ed Wilson is consoling me by telling me things will warm up throughout the week. Whew. Tantrum over (for now).
I should have posted the following photos last week, but in my typical fashion I got distracted by other things and never got around to it. So, here we go …
I got to hang out with Amanda Krenz and Emily Price last Tuesday when we flew to Louisiana with the Iowa National Guard. The invite came in Monday night and we all jumped at the chance to go. By the end of last week hundreds of Iowa Guard troops were on the ground helping with Gustav recovery efforts. It was a nice surprise to see these two ladies, although I don’t think any of us expected to spend as much time waiting at the Des Moines airport as we did (six hours)! Emily and I had fun making people in HyVee do double-takes when they saw us getting lunch together.
I think Megan’s mom is telling a funny(embarrassing)story about Megan. We had a lot of laughs.
More of the gang
Some of the loot
I should have taken a better picture of this quilt. Megan’s mother made it and it’s a Wizard of Oz theme. I love the tornado reference. Perfect for a meteorologist.
Have a fantastic week!
