Floods, rainbows, birthdays, and a finish

Hello! I live in Central Indiana and we've had storm after storm after storm the last week or more. Today, very early, we received between 3-5 inches of rain and here are the results. All pictures are clickable.

This is normally a dry area near a lake and the water was over the road at one point, I think. There were evacuations by boat at a condo/housing addition right on the other side of this. That addition has a lake in the middle of it and a creek behind it (that was spilling into this lake)

This is approaching that lake. There is a walk path somewhere along here.

This is the "creek" that spilled into the previous lake. Normally, the first set of legs under the bridge you can walk to and not get wet.

This is one of the retention ponds in my apartment complex. Normally you can see a wide row of large white rocks.

Here's a double rainbow after a storm last week.

And that's it for the storm/flood pictures!

My youngest grandson, Jasper, turns 1 on the 24th and we had a party for him this last Saturday.

The birthday boy eating cake.

My oldest grandson, Jack, with a "faux" mohawk. Isn't that a gorgeous smile of his? The other boy is a friend but for the life of me, I can't remember his name!

Jasper's cake. It was yummy!

And my "finish". I posted about finishing the stitching last week, and I finally got it made into a scissor fob. I really like the way it turned out.

I thought I had another stitching finish, but I can't think of what it was. Oh well, maybe by this weekend, I'll have a finish to share!

It was also both of my daughters-in-laws' birthdays this month (Anna and Robyn) but I didn't get any pictures of them. They enjoyed the Bath and Body Works gift cards I got them.

Let's hope we have no more rain. There is a dam/levee upstream from us that is "leaking" and if we get more heavy rain, it may just give out completely. Yikes!

I hope you all have a great, dry week!

Eskie smiles,


  1. Northeastern Illinois is also looking a little water logged - and we have more storms today! I hope the flooding by you doesn't get any worse. Your scissors fob turned out great!

  2. Hey, Terri! Great bunch of pictures and your finished fob looks fabulous. (Oops- unintentional alliteration, lol!)

    Stay DRY!!!
