alive and well

Just reporting in - you may know that some of the tornadoes on Wednesday passed near our home.  Far too close for comfort.  But our house is okay, just some twigs and leaves all over the yard and chairs blown around.  Some of our church members and friends have damage and injuries, but nothing too major.  The only real imposition to us personally is that "our" Hobby Lobby and Big Lots were destroyed, and we will have to drive to another until they are rebuilt.

Our hearts go out to the people who have lost family and friends and property.  At this point, I can't even wrap my brain around the level of devastation.  I keep looking at these photos and videos, and in some cases the destruction is such that it's hard to identify what it even used to be.  I guess I will have to see it in person to believe that places I see all the time will never look the same again.

the reason for the season

Wishing a blessed and happy Easter to my blog friends.

It would appear that my lamp is developing a case of the Zoobles.  Anybody know if there's a pesticide or something for that?
