Here on the East Coast struck Hurricane Irene. Thankfully, I didn’t have to wake up to any damage. The only noticeable remnant of the storm (from my window) was the branch that had fallen at my front door.

I am happy to say though that this natural disaster made me see life a lot differently. I woke up this morning expecting the worst. In fact, I went to bed @ 3 am thinking that I would literally have to weather the storm for a few days without power. To my surprise, it was business as usual with the exception of my cable being out on one of my televisions (which is minute considering and I believe that the little people have elected to watch movies today anyway). I am truly grateful!

On a lighter note:
Friday night, I stopped in Sephora and although I stated that I would not purchase anymore makeup (who was I fooling) until I used more of what I have…I…I…well at least it was all on sale!

So a friend of mine  joked that while others were out buying water, batteries and gas I was buying MAKEUP. lol. Where’s the surprise in that? I guess I could’ve done some looks and uploaded them but this weather makes me so incredibly lazy. Besides I am still catching up on past episodes of the Young and the Restless. Must I tell you that I have arrived –FINALLY– at episodes dating back to December of 2010.

So I am officially blaming my lethargy on the weather, my choice of warm beverages and the most wonderful banana bread that I have ever tasted in my life. (By the way, I’m not a fan of banana anything. It was my daughter’s idea to add that loaf to our weekly order of homemade loaves from http://www.facebook.com/EdensTouchBread. They also added specialty butters to my order for last week. DELICIOUS!). So back to this laziness…ther are so many factors–including this blog—wait, this is work! #productivity

Well, Irene, thank you for going easy on me and to those of you who are cleaning up this morning and without daily luxuries (e.g., electricity, habitable shelter, etc.) my prayers are with you.
