...a sigh of relief....

Well, I'm sitting in my living room with my hubby watching hockey. It's nice to be home, without a place to be until tomorrow night!

Today was a crazy day...

We woke up to crazy winds, like over 70kph!!! I had to bring my scrapbooking supplies to the crop, then take my son to hockey (all that before lunch). Upon our return (my hubby was drywalling our garage) I learned that our shed was no more.

...our shed was literally lifted from it's foundation and thrown everywhere. Some pieces flew over our fence into the construction area that is past our yard, some pieces flew over the fence into the trees bordering the lake and other pieces are still MIA. The wind has only now died down enough to risk going outside (but it's also 10pm and pitch black). It will be interesting to see the damage and missing pieces tomorrow when we try to find everything that was once in our yard!

Our neighbors are missing siding and soffits from their homes...and trees have fallen ALL over the place. Thankfully, they landed on the roads and NOT on anyone's home! Of course, I did not have my camera with me, so I don't have any pics to show you.

That adventure done, I headed out to the crop to teach my class and squeeze in a LO or two! It was nice, cozy and relaxing. It was fun. Here's the pic of the make and take we made.

I know this is not the greatest pic of the LO, but it reads "we love the beach...even on the cloudy days". I love make and takes, because even though it's the same template, everyone adds their own uniqueness and the end products all look so different. I was asked to keep it fairly simple because we had most beginners to intermediate scrappers. It was fun to see everyone's creative juices flowing during the class.

After a great homemade supper and a little creative work, I headed home for some much needed rest. As I sit here typing (sitting beside my man who is watching the hockey game) I realize I am more tired than I thought...

So, I'm off to bed.
