Eek!
Momnan, do you have tornado warnings by you? I know parts of our state do.

I ate a few leftovers for dinner and got so sleepy. I just finished a short nap, and I am still sleepy. It is also cold here in northern California. Hubby (who hardly ever turns up the heat) turned it up! Weird weather!

This was the scene from the TD Garden in Boston earlier tonight, this was the first major sporting event since Monday's tragedy.




Very emotional, brought tears to my eyes.

Hey Snowflake!
So far no tornado warnings...flooding is a big concern.
This house hasn't been prone to it in the past, but received an email from the city saying it is a possibility and they are asking us all to do our part to keep the burden off the sewers as much as we can.
Are you doing alright where you are?
Thanks for checking in on me!
Hugs!

Not many plans for tonight. I think I may have popcorn for dinner. I am not really hungry. We also have enough leftovers in there, so I don't really have to cook. I think I might go eat now; my stomach is growling. TTYL
Sorry about your friends (((hugs)))

Time for some TV time with Hubby. Dessert, too. I think I told you I bought three pies on Frieday from the auction that benefits crippled children. TTYT

Of course!! Thanks for the hugs
Sending some back to you!!

Glad there are no tornado warnings in your area. Scary stuff.

I hope you don't get any flooding.
You guys are in my thoughts & prayers.

We have a flood watch in effect, but haven't heard from the city either.

Stay safe!! Xo
