Quilt drawing winners

Thank you to all who donated. Almost $1,000 was raised to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation!

Congratulations to Beryl who had winning ticket number 125 for the quilt made by Judy Laquidara:

And to Vicki M. who had winning ticket number 31 for the quilt made by Vicki Bellino:

Because of your support, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has over 30 therapies in their drug development pipeline. Many medicines in development will make treatment times shorter and more effective, but they still only treat the symptoms.

The most promising new therapies are small compounds that can potentially correct the underlying defect in the CFTR protein. They represent our best hope yet to control cystic fibrosis. On behalf of all people affected by CF, thank you for helping to further these efforts.

Just Another Day in May in Oklahoma

These are not in the right order, but,,,,, most of these I took by taking pictures off of the tv....

Shows the hail that had accumulated and in some of the pictures you can see some fog that was caused by the hail hitting the hot ground

This was from my front door as it was passing over my house
From front yard as the storm was coming closer

Look how blue the sky was...lots of hail

Downtown OKC wrapped in rain and hail

More hail

Left picture is of hail taken in a neighborhood and the one on the right is my poor Forest Pansy Redbud swaying in the wind....it was pretty strong in spots.

It's almost Quilt Raffle Time!

 The deadline to donate for quilt chances is Monday, May 24th 2010, 5 p.m. CST.

If you haven't gotten any chances yet, time is running short!  The quilts are just beautiful!  Follow the link above to look at them again.

Here is a picture of Katy with her older sister Kyra.  Playing in the yard and here comes the snake, lol. They live sorta "in the country" and all sorts of things wander by in their yard.  This one they could catch.  Not sure what happened to the snake.  I don't think I wanted to know.

At Least the Yard Looks Good

April was very, very stressful.  Between Aud and her ER visits and being on oxygen and having reactions to medicines, it has been pretty stressful. However, when you add on the "Oh, let's remodel the kitchen", and "Oh, better get these rooms moved around before we close in the wall" , and "Oh, it's time to get the yard ready for spring", my hair is getting thin. 

So, one of those Ohs is almost resolved.  I need one more load of rocks, and then I am calling it done.

Forest Pansy Redbud tree and irises.  

Front yard with azaleas blooming.

I think there are some better pictures of some of this, but it has taken me a week to get this post together so I need to get it done.
