  6. Hi Kathryn! Joy to you and so glad I have power today to link-in! Wrote my post last night before the heavy winds and rains set in. Currently - Monday morning at 9:45 - we have some nasty squalling out there, but thankfully still have power. Hunkered down and planning to use the "vacation" days this week to "prettify" some things around the house! Knowing God as our Refuge and Strength through the storms here in South Jersey - and blessings of His safe arms to all our other blogger friends in Sandy's path!
    Joy!
