Blogmas Catch-up & Sunday Sew Love: 14 December

Eeek… what happened? I missed two days of Blogmas! :) Ooops. Well, day 12 was “Winter Activity” during which time Danny and I were out galavanting in San Fran in the rain… so I’ll consider that our winter activity :) Speaking of, it was really sad; we stayed in Union Square thinking there would be some awesome Christmas lights and such, and the power was out from the storm :( I didn’t even take one picture while we were there. Oh well; next time! Here are a few pictures from our county during the storm (stolen from Facebook… it didn’t get bad at our house):   Other wonderful winter activities I’ve been participating in include: watching movies snuggled up by the Christmas Tree (finally watched Shawshank Redemption – I’d never seen it – amazing movie! And I’m taking that as one more mark on the 30 before 30 list!) :), online shopping (I know it’s Christmas and all but still I think I have a problem… lol), baking, sewing, wrapping presents, and going to the …

My First Tornado

Experienced my first real tornado today! Well, I don’t know if you can say “experienced”… here was the extent of it: Went to the post office at lunch and as I was driving back onto base, I noticed the clouds looked funny.

But, by the time I parked, the tornado warning alarms were going off and everyone was running outside to take pictures (maybe not the smartest move…) before going downstairs into the tornado shelter. Anywhoo, I’m of course glad it didn’t come any closer. Really don’t want to experience one for real. No thank you there. Plus, last night we had a crazy hail storm that put poor little Finny boy into a nervous shaking fit :( Have I mentioned yet that I am ready for nicer weather. No? Ok, I’m ready for nicer weather. :)
