It will be OK

Seriously, there’s no time for this. I spent a lot of time this week worrying about and preparing for a hurricane. We’re expected to experience the outer bands of Hurricane Florence as she makes her way into the Carolinas. The weather forecast calls for tropical storm levels of rain and wind.

Everything is secured, we have “plenty” of water. Thankfully I live in a neighborhood of supportive friends. We have each other’s backs. There’s nothing more for me to do except continue prepping for my exhibit that will open on Oct 11. So as long as we have electricity, I’ll be quilting the last pieces of artwork.

This week is merely a reminder that you can never plan for everything. When things get out of your control, just take a breath and make the most of what you have. As my dad would say…it will be OK.

    I have been thinking of you as Florence approaches NC. Just last week we were expecting H Gordon and it veered a little, only giving us a few hours of drizzle, postponing the Reception for an art exhibit one week and nothing more. Wishing all hurricanes could be such non-events. Be safe and report in. Good luck on your preparations your Oct. 11 show.
