Hi this is Rhiannon (I'm the oldest daughter!),
Just a quick note from My Mom. We are so happy and thankful to still have a home. We finally got back into our house on Friday!! The Electric came back on Saturday - Yay! Still no Internet at home though. We're waiting for the Internet guy to tell us where to replace the burnt pole. We seem to be in a bigger hurry then he is, but there's a million things to do at home anyway. Lots of clean-up inside and out. Also we're trying to make room for my grandparents and my aunt to live at our place for awhile. Camp trailers in the yard for sleeping and privacy, inside for intense bonding over Grandma's fried tacos. No worries about mom and her quilting though. When we were evacuating she grabbed more quilts than anything else. I can't say much though because I grabbed all of my quilts and stuffed them in my car too. Also during all this mayhem and craziness, mom has still been working on a basket quilt project. Thanks so much for all the kind and supportive comments. As soon as we get the Internet at home again , Mom will check back in and start returning some emails.
