Crazy Ass Nebraska Weather

Another mothers day, spent with family. Its always nice to see the boys and grandma & grandpa. I believe that mother nature has had it with us humans. Yesterday had Tornado warnings most of the day, it was so hot and humid had to turn the ac on last night, tonight had to turn the heater on temp is 46. This weather is just crazy. Troy and Brandon were at the bowling alley when the sirens went off last night, I don't do well during tornados, but I did get my studio straightened up with all my nervous energy. I made a little space for Gracie and I in the corner of the basement, had a Adirondack chair, small table, ipad,  phone & Gracie's hat box bed all cozy and safe, my total melt down was short lived no more then 10min. Did I mention I hate tornados?? We had an actual river running through our back yard, and our window well filled up with water and started leaking into my studio, PANIC!!

My tornado corner.

I'm thinking I need some sand and maybe paint a beach scene on the wall. If only I had 10 more hours in a day!
What projects are you working on? I decided to table my manatee for my next show and start over. Since it is due on May 26, I guess I will be working on that. Stay safe in this crazy menopausal weather.

Wow, I believe I have lost my marbles!

Our MFAA Exhibit is due on May 26th, which wouldn't be a problem if I hadn't decided to scrap the piece I've been working on for the last 10 months. That leaves me 19 days to design, assemble and quilt a new piece. I  originally was planning on doing a manatee, but I am not liking it at the moment, and not sure what it needs, guess I will have to sit on it awhile, but don't have that much time. So starting from scratch.

Gracie has figured out how to get off the deck to chase the birds, so I am making her stay in the house and she is mad at me. She will jump up on my lap about every 15 minutes and try to lick me to death thinking that I will change my mind and let her out. She also had a bath tonight which she wasn't very thrilled about. 

"Pees, let me go outdoors to chase the birdies!!!"

"I know daddy would let me get them birdies if he was here!!!!" "and he wouldn't have made me take a bath and get rid of the stink I have been working so hard on perfecting"
Hope every one has a great rest of the week, going to be 90 here tomorrow - right into summer woohooo!!
