Hurricane to your left. Hurricane to your right.

Hurricane season is definitely here. H and Ava just got back last Sunday from Houston and now here we are in Florida preparing for Hurricane Irma. This feels like the longest drawn out hurricane ever! I pray there is no devastation in Florida. I wish it would just get on with it and go out into the ocean. 

(Yesterday 9/8/17 when mild gusts started. It was pretty sunny most of the day)

(Today 9/9/17. Overcast, rainy and windy)

Right now H is reading a story to the girls and I'm taking a quick moment to update my blog. The girls have been off school since Thursday and the schools will still be closed on Monday. We've been spending a lot of time outside but around 2 pm today the rain started and it's been off an on. There are wind gusts here and there and the conditions are getting worse now. Hurricane Irma should hit the Florida Keys early tomorrow morning. We are prepared and initially it was fore casted to hit the east side of south Florida, but it's now over on the west coast and we are out of the cone. We'll see what tomorrow brings but we are prepared. I think at best we just might get some tropical storm winds.

Due to everything that's been going on and everyone preparing for the hurricane, life feels like it's been put on standstill again. Before this came about I was still continuing to work on refurbishing a dresser and preparing for Ava's birthday party. She turns 2 this Tuesday but I'll be pushing her birthday party to some time later this week. Business has still been going. I've left the shop open and all orders have been shipped out. I'm hoping my mom can come visit next week. She's literally waiting as well to see what is going to happen with this hurricane. She originally wanted to drive out tomorrow afternoon from Texas. If the weather is going to be bad the rest of the week as well, there is no sense in her coming. We'll see what happens. Everything is just hanging in the air right now. 

Have a good weekend.
