Hurricane Dolly

Our family is watching Hurricane Dolly closely since it is headed for southern Texas. My parents have a home on North Padre Island where we stayed for 6 weeks this past spring. (You will see lots of news coverage coming from South Padre Island which is a much more populated area of the island.) This is where we fell in love with Texas. Dad said that the estimate he saw was up to 20" of expected rainfall. Yikes!

We are keeping updated on Dolly by accessing the National Hurricane Center website.

Poor Dad. Today he had a stress test that was part of his annual heart checkup. He flunked. However, he said that he did not realize the test was 5 minutes long or he would've endured the last minute. He made it to 4 minutes and decided he'd had enough. So for the next 24 hours he is hooked up to a heart monitor. Thankfully this is all outpatient.

Five of my children just left to go visit their Granddad. They took a blackberry cobbler and sourdough rolls, fresh from the oven. Wow, it's peaceful around here now!
Anna is busy sewing a quilt to send to an orphanage. All she has left to do is the binding. If you would like to sew up a quilt for charity, let us know. We will give you the precut pieces to make a crib size quilt. We may even have enough fabric to do a twin size.

I'll be sure to show you Anna's finished quilt. She is also finishing up a quilt for her new cousin, Abby. I'll get pictures of that quilt, too.

Many blessings ~ Kathie
