We Survived

Yup, that's about the extent of the damage at my house.
I went out to do a little surveillance this morning.  We're fine.  It was very windy and rainy, but we didn't get as much over here as they did to the east.  They said though it was a Category 1 Hurricane, it was really more like a tropical storm. 

No trees down in our yard.  I made the hubs and the Daisydog sleep with me in the basement.  There were tornado warnings all over the place and you could hear the wind howling outside all night long.  I was worried more about the wind than anything.

We had a dove adopt us a little over a month ago.  It's one of those white ones that is probably released at weddings.  The poor thing got lost on it's way home.  We can't get close enough for him to let us touch him, but we're getting there. I was worried about him.

Recently, he brought home a girlfriend.  She's a regular old pigeon.  There's a little love story going on in our back yard though I was concerned for a bit because she only came for one night last week and I didn't think that Dovey was that kind of guy.  I thought that doves mated for life and to see this little hussy fly in for one night made me a little bit suspicious of their relationship.

She and Dovey came home together last night and hung out on the roof all night.  I took a peek out this morning and they were a little worse for wear, but were alive so I'm happy.  I worried about them all night.

It's still raining and it is likely to rain for most of the day.  I think I'll stay in and knit.


  1. I hope all the plants are ok!!!
    Seriously though, I'm glad the hurricane wasn't worse than that. I'm also glad that your little love duo made it, despite their unprecedented romance.

  2. Thanks, the plants are doing quite well except the sunflowers which seem quite weary. You wouldn't believe it, but Dovey came home tonight with two other white doves. They're not banded. I don't know what he thinks he has going here. Seems we are some sort of dove sanctuary now.
    Good food, I suppose. :)

  3. Happy to hear you survived Irene! I have to say, I really like the overall feel of your blog. Some blogs are cluttered and the words are pastel colors which make them hard to read, but yours is refreshing and fun. Good job with your design!

  4. Thanks, Lorena! I'm glad you like it! I'm currently working on a redesign. Sloooowly.
