Pictures of the things we are growing. I know the yard really needs to be mowed and it's obvious in these pictures, but that's one of my least favorite outdoor activities, Besides, it takes both me and Andrew being home during daylight hours so one of us can watch Isabelle, and nice weather. Very unusual. Speaking of nice weather, I can't get over just how gorgeous it is today. It's only in the 60's and breezy, with lots of sunshine. Now this is what I call spring weather. Save the eighty plus stuff for summertime. I have the windows open and as soon as Isabelle wakes up from her nap, we are headed outside.

Wednesday April 27 was a very scary night where we live. We spent much of the night in the basement hoping a tornado wouldn't come. We were very lucky that night. Our house was spared, and the worse we suffered was being without power for a few days. So many houses, and lives were not. As I've written before, Chattanooga, and the TN valley are not considered part of tornado alley, but we do see them every year, and they are more dangerous here because you can't usually see them coming because of the trees and mountains. Also, we don't have tornado sirens around here. Sadly, many people were under the misconception that the mountains block tornadoes, but as I think everyone learned Wednesday, that is so not the case.
