hurricane preparations

Preparing for the hurricane, Steve and I did a few things. First- buying food at the last possible minute. Second- filling the bathtub with water in case we didn't have running water (and needed to flush the toilet, not drink. priorities). and third- clear out the back yard.

Well, nothing happened with the hurricane. Everything is paved and runs away from our house. and our house is shielded by all the other houses, so hardly any wind. I was fine with that. Which is good because first - we only bought stuff for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and I don't like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. second - our tub must have a small leak in the plug, because we woke up in the morning and all the water had drained out. and third - mr. peabody loves all our items from the backyard which were relocated into our house. not only does he love chewing on all my plants (what am i going to do in winter?!) but he sat on our porch chairs for 5 days (I finally put them back outside tonight). and gave me evil looks (like the one pictured) every time i got near HIS chairs.

So I got bored and made this cozy for a pint glass (filled with hot coffee!). I couldnt get a great photo, but you get the idea. it's mint green with two white stripes and a white bow. the bow looks overpowering, but it's just the right size.
