So everything is still up in the air as to if Irene is going to turn in our direction or not, but my parents are preparing bc it will most certainly hit CT. I just got off the phone with my dad who is pulling the boat from the water as I write this.. they have two houses right in the path... Both within a few miles of the beach. So far for us it looks like some rain... Maybe... I still can't get over them evacuating nyc! That just seems insane to me... I mean heck, where will all those people go? But pretty much all of New England will be in my prayers this weekend, as the far majority of my family lives there. at least people are as prepared as they can be.
On another note I have a busy day today! Mike and I are going to see a girl about a piano. Then if we like it rounding up a truck and a few people to bring it home!! Yay!! Then from there heading to Corning for lunch we were going to go to Thali of India for our wedding anniversary on Monday but it's closed.:( so instead we are going for lunch today with Heidi who loves the food there as much as we do! Then we have TONS of stuff to get done around the house so I will be busy busy!!

My day started off with me being awfully tired, but a quick stop at the Dunkin Donuts drive through and one large iced coffee later I had enough pep for the day! :) I headed off to Meals On Wheels for my Friday delivery. This time not with Sid which surprisingly made it a Tad more enjoyable. I took Tessa and she was delightful today.
Afterword we did a bit of tag sailing. Found a cute pink bean bag chair for Heidi, some $5 Xbox 360 games for Mike and Tessa found some clothes she wanted. Then we made a quick pit stop at Weis for some milk and pectin. I found this great easy recipe for making fresh preserves. When my father came to visit last week he brought along with him some blueberries he had picked fresh in PA... They were awesome! We made an amazing jam from them! Michael and I admittedly sat there and polished off a whole jar! LOL! (4 oz jar thankfully) I plan on posting the recipe for sure!!
I made one of my favorite recipes for pot roast and baby red potatoes for dinner.. Then Michael came home with some BEAUTIFUL flowers for me!! Some yellow lilies and a purple flower I have never seen before. Such a sweet man! Dinner came out nice Heidi and papa really enjoyed it. Then we had a nice calm, relaxing night watching food network. I am lucky right now, Michael and Heidi have gone off to bed and I am sitting here with a nice cup of Gut'nact tea... Listening to some nice soft jazz on NPR. *sigh* heaven...
