Bob and I are back from our bi-yearly buying trip.
On our way down we stopped at the Toledo Zoo.
we were able to see a baby gorilla who was so cute.
He was very active and doing what kids do.
His mom was nearby making sure us humans
would not come through the glass.
Then we saw a baby polar bear who was sleeping
next to his mom.
Southern Ohio the rivers were running fast
and high, with flooding in some places.
Tornado warnings were issued in Indiana
where we stopped in Ohio on Thursday night.
Thunderstorms could be heard all night.
In the morning we woke up
to 4 inches of rain that fell overnight.
The venue we go to, lots of vendors
were under water...their goods which were
set up were ruined.
It was a big old mess.
However, we still continued to shop...
and shop we did.
By Saturday afternoon our van was full...
we were tired and decided to head back home.
We were able to buy things
for both Back Porch and The Urban Garage,
but no prims.
The only prim item that was within my budget,
was an old book,
which I will keep for Christmas as it
is a Psalms & Hymn book.
I paid only $1.00 because both covers were gone.
Still good for my small book collection.
This book dates at 1846.
Still a beauty in my eyes.
If you have been noticing the pics
in this post...
I have quite an extensive collection of baskets.
These are only a few.
I have many more.
You might say I am a hoarder of them.
They are everywhere.
Including our bathroom.
Well friends I have much needed laundry to do.
Will visit you all later on
and answer my comments later too.
We may have some storms move in later today.
Going through the marsh yesterday
South of us...homes were already flooded,
while others the water was inching closer.
I have never seen the water levels this high.
They expect the levels will not recede until
September or October, so they have put
residents on notice to be able to evacuate
at a moments notice.
We are safe right now.
TA TA for now.
Hope you all are enjoying your weekend!
Love of Basket Blessings To All!
