    What a beautiful post with VERY artistic and lovely photos. I will have to check to find out where you are located. It must be frightening to be in the path of a hurricane. I cannot imagine. On the prairies in Alberta… we are not on a fault, not near the ocean… and the locusts are long gone.
    I now want some of those recipes…

    Be safe and stay dry! I learned about fruit infused water when I was traveling… Come to think of it, it’s a great idea to try again! Thanks for the inspiration.

    Everything looks great! Beautiful photographs as well!

    Oh I feel your pain. Rainstorms are pretty common over here. Don’t forget to stock up on your batteries for your flashlight and cell and candles if/when the batteries die.

    So nice, Bonnie! I want to know more about how you made that golden, delicious looking fish and the strawberry avocado salsa. Otay?
    Hope you guys are well and that Texas wears through the storm. Cauldron Boy is flying into Dallas on Sat-hope it’s okay by then. I’m actually really worried about it…
