Stormy Weather...Soon...



It's a perfect, sunshiny, blue sky day in
East Tennessee today.
Hard to believe we will probably
be dealing with the remains of 
Hurricane Florence
on Sunday and Monday.
Our local forecast is rain,
some wind, rain and more rain.

I have now lived in my little
cape cod for fifteen months.
I have a huge basement,
which has not flooded since I have
been here.
But my neighbor Sue tells me
it did once flood several years ago.
So,
I am enough worrier to worry about that.
I know what dealing with a 
My big concern is that I am storing 
all my sister Nancy's 
furniture and home goods 
while she is a care giver of our parents.
So I have a very full basement.
On my To Do list today or tomorrow
is to get everything I can 
raised a bit off the floor.
Just in case...

Fun road trip last weekend.
M was visiting and we drove
to Wise, Virginia and visited




Located about a hour away,
the vineyard is located
atop a mountain.
The drive was twisty and curvy.


But once we arrived we were rewarded
with a bucolic and pretty winery.


We had a tasting of several wines
and explored their small shop.


The vines for the concord grapes 
were open for "cutting your own."


Since I have never cut grapes,
I had to give it a try.


After a very short while
I had a nice bucket full 
to take home.


They taste as good as they look!

Godspeed for everyone 
who has already been, or will be affected
by the hurricane.

I am saying a prayer that you don't get hit too hard with the bad weather, Susan. I certainly hope you don't get water in your basement. That would be horrible.

Love those concord grapes. I grew up in an area where they scrambled all over the stone fences. We would collect then and make jelly for the winter months.

Have a wonderful weekend- xo Diana

I pray your basement does not flood. I have a basement and I am always worrying about flooding when heavy rains are predicted....I find no peace in this house because of that. It has flooded twice. we have a two sump pumps but flash flooding makes us use a submersible pump also. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie
