Just Friday

Well, Irene really kicked us in the butt - I'm so glad to have our power back on and finally, after two weeks, feel "normal" again.  Mother nature really can throw a wrench into things for sure.   We had no power for almost five days, like many others, and it really, truly was awful.  We are all electric at home, so, needless to say, those cold showers were really starting to put me in a bad mood. The big guy and I ended up checking into a hotel - I just couldn't take it any more.   In the end, we are thankful - it could have been so much worse.  

My friend and I followed through with our trip to the Cape, and despite the lack of power there, we did make the best of it.  We laughed, ate, shopped, hung on the beach - all that Cape stuff.  We came home a day early, but we had fun - who needs power, right?  We still had daylight.





Here's our cottage,


Fun at the beach,



The water was WICKED cold,



I've more pictures to edit and post.

I've also some Magpie layouts that I wasn't able to post earlier.  Tara has done it again, so head on over and snag yourself a kit before they are sold out.  Lots of fun stuff in the box!

Here are two more, and, as always, except the lace, twine, and a punch here and there, these are created with ONLY supplies in the kit,



I've more to post over the weekend, and, oh my love, I spent the day on Wednesday playing with my Amy Tangerine loot!!  

Enjoy your Friday.
