Eclectic, quirky, and sometimes edgy…this is how things look from my front porch.

Keep Calm and Carry On

I love this sentiment.  Posters like these were produced in Great Britain beginning in 1939. 

So, you know that the natural world is a little unstable in your region when you hope that Hurricane Irene will put out the wildfire that's been burning in the Great Dismal Swamp for months now.  When the wind blows a certain way, the haze actually hangs in the air inside my house. This week has been intense what with an earthquake and now a Cat 3 hurricane.    What's a girl to do but keep calm and carry on.

And let me just mention that those of us who hang unique things like handmade dollhouses from our fence and use seatless antique chairs to hold potted flowers in baskets are in a world of hurt when we need to remove projectiles from our property.  They don't seem quite so cleverly eclectic in the midst of a weather emergency.

Actually, I think the situation may be so grave that I need to follow my sister Kerry's advice instead:

Praying all will be well at 256! You'll be in my thoughts and prayers all weekend and yes! Eat cookies, too. :) Blessings, Debra
