we are fine - nothing significant happened here just some wind, rain and power outages. if you are trying to call michael or me our phones are not working. as everyone knows new orleans and much of the gulf coast in mississippi is absolutely devastated. please send your good thoughts to them and if you can donate to the red cross or some other reputable charity that can help.

hurricane katrina is here. we are getting lots of wind and rain but it's not terrible (although i don't think i will be having my coffee outside today). i haven't seen anything big blowing down the street yet. we still have power. i think the plants in my yard are going to be really torn up and there are some birds hiding on our porch. i will try to post a video later.

We found the weirdest looking spider in the yard. Check out the close up. We should probably put that on a T shirt :)

It's never too early to get your holiday shopping done :) We're thinking of doing stockings for the holidays this year. Here's a green and red version; below that a white one and a pink one in progress.

I love Wikipedia. It squared an argument Maggie and I were having about what a certain backyard bug was called. I said Roley Poley and she said Doodlebug. We were both right.
