For the past several days we have been trapped in the house from all the rain Tropical Storm Debby has handed us! At first we needed a lot of rain. It was sooo dry we were having a lot of forest fires. Tropical Storm Bryle gave us some rain first, then Debby came a few weeks later. She has dumped about 15' on our poor town!!! The creeks are flooding into to homes. Roads are washed out and people are stranded and cant get out. It's horrible! I pray for the ones that have gotten it bad.

We are pretty high where we live. I would hope so with it being called "Highland" LOL Here is a few pics of our yard and at the end I will post some pics of roads/bridges that are washed out.

Side of the house

Front yard

Side yard and the pond in the back ground


Pond again

This is about how close it got to the house...not that close. It's all dried up now!!!

the street leading to our driveway

This is a ant ball Jeremy had to take a pic of...LOL It was gross!!!

This is the Middleburg Boat Ramp in one of the nearby towns(someone posted a pic on FB today and you can't even see the rails to the dock :( )

Washed out bridge near the school I work at

same washed out bridge but worse....

This road is the road my sister lives down.
 They said it will probably take 3 weeks before they can reopen County Road 218!!! It's crazy because people have to drive very far to get around to where they need to go. So sad!!! Hoping and praying they get fixed faster than that...geez!!!

Pinterest :)

I don't know about ya'll but I just love pinning away! How about you??? I have been pinning for months and keep telling myself I am going to make all these things but never do. Oh, I did make a taco pizza once but never a DIY project.

I have no excuses since I am out for the summer (woohoo)!!! So I decided last week that I was going to try a small project! I love decorating for the holidays and I have family coming in for the 4th of July. So, I made a flag wreath. It was so easy. It just took me forever to get going on it since I have been reading 50 Shades of Grey (blog on that later when I finish my last book)!!!

Here is my project.....

The supplies I needed

Add caption

You fold them into triangles and then stick a pin through the bottom

I did some adjusting and still need to do some...LOL

She was driving me nuts!!! Barking and snorting at me! I guess I wasn't giving her enough attention or something! Beau must of had her toy!!!

Almost done....

It's all done!!! I see some room for improvement but I am very proud of myself :))
