Water, Water, EVERYWHERE!

You know, Hurricane Irene had me about NUTS!  I was so afraid my lower level was going to flood.  For hours, I scooped water-bucket after bucket.  I knew if I didn't, the water would reach the bottom of my doorstep and it would seep in through the foundation...OH WHAT TORTURE!  I was stuck between scooping water OR going to Lowes to find a solution...I finally decided that I HAD to go find a solution even if I had to clean water up when I returned.  So...during the torrential downpour, I sloshed to Lowes to look for some type of downspout extender. They were TOTALLY wiped out.  OF COURSE They were wiped out!  Right?  I rushed over to Home Depot and found exactly what I needed.  PHEW!  Headed back home and saved the day!  I was about to have a nervous breakdown!

After that fiasco, I needed to relax a bit...CHILL I headed to my stamping room.  Wierd, I picked the most interesting stamps to use... What do you think my muse was telling me???
 Nautical...Who whould have thought?  Kinda gives me a little chuckle now that I reflect on it!
