My shopping for shoes post will have to wait :) Yesterday our area we love and call home was impacted by unreal winds - strongest winds since 2000. You can check out the forces of hurricane-force winds and the details of our area's destruction here . Our home was not affected except power outage for about 18 hours. Our office lost some shingles and also power outage for the day. We stayed warm when we returned home with our snuggle bug, blankets, and our fireplace.
Our usual candle decorations were used to add some light for the evening.
My thoughts are with all who were affected as clean up begins. We drove past our old house in Centerville city which reports $8 million in damage thus far - winds reported up to 102 mph. Our old homes fence and shingles were fortunately intact.
We had RSI Christmas lunch. We had a gift exchange and had so much fun sharing. I was so touched by everyone's thoughtful gifts for each other. It felt like a grounding lunch after such an ungrounding past couple days. Some in our office still don't have power at their homes.
After the Muppet Movie (so cute with some pretty great messages!) we went to the Festival of Trees. This is the beautiful tree created by a dear friend in memory of her three children: Rock -n- Read. I found myself just standing there and thinking about them and such a place to put life into perspective.
Best wishes for your weekend. What is happening in your part of the world?
