Adapting My Photo due to Hurricane Sandy?

Posted on: October 30, 2012

I wrote this post Monday afternoon.  It is now 10:45 pm and our electricity which went out for two hours, just came back on, so posting this now.  Schools are suppose to open 2 hours late on Tuesday. There is flooding everywhere.  One block over from me is blocked off from traffic and road crews are out. Glad my husband got home….

As I have mentioned before, my husband is off only one day a week and is my photographer.  So how much fun is it when that one day is the day that the Tropical Storm is starting to arrive?  Well, there will be no photos in my favorite locations this week….

Outfit I put together to just hang around the house, of course the scarf is something I added to make it more blog-worthy!   I have to note, having selfish children take photos is not fun…. I am having intense sinus pressure headaches and I can see evidence of this in my photo… I really like this sweater and the color combo of pink and orange. Think I need to do to this sweater what I did to a bunch this weekend and throw it in the wash and dryer to shrink it up some.  It worked and helped me to preserve them… This  losing weight thing has all kinds of challenges…

Spent the day hunkered down with the rains pouring in and the winds whipping the trees all around my house.  Also kept waiting for the electricity to go out as it usually does during hurricane season.  Happy to say I am writing this at 4pm on Monday and still have electric, cable, phone and internet!!! I know from Facebook that some are not as lucky.  Apparently the storm is turning more inland and we have not seen the worst of it yet….  I live about 8 miles from the oceanfront, where they are experiencing heavier winds and floods.  A few roads in the city are closed off due to flooding.

Schools are all closed because of the flooding everywhere.  I am grateful for that.  My husband is out working in this.  Why not send out your home improvement sales force on a day when people are all stuck at home?   One of his biggest shows of the year, Home-a-rama shut down Friday, as the tent company came to pick up their tent.  It was the final weekend and a big loss…

Any excuse to hold my Dooney and Bourke, purse, but who am I kidding, I am  stuck inside from a Hurricane…. I also changed out the leggings to black straight leg jeans.  I prefer this look.

This is the first time wearing these Aerosoles that I picked up online on a one day sale for just $19.99.  I got four pairs that day and these are the most comfortable.

Tomorrow is weigh in day at Weight Watchers!  Hope everything is settled down as I am ready to get out of the house!   OOhh, I get to pick out an outfit!  Something to kill the boredom of being stuck inside…..Off to go play in my closet!  Wonder if I will get lost in there and forget to make dinner… It has happened before!
