Good News, Bad News

Good News - I had time this morning to make 40 exchange blocks which my Bee group is exchanging each month for a year. I had 40 blocks made already, so now I have 80 total. We need 400 some to make a quilt. I think these little blocks will make wonderful scrappy quilts.
Bad news is that it is raining and has been raining steadily and although I have no leaks in my basement, the water is filling up in my window wells and coming through the edges of the windows. I have been mopping up, but it is hard to keep up with the steady flow of water. Fortunately the water is only in the part of my basement where there is no carpeting or quilting stuff or furniture. It is in a room where the laundry shute ends and where I store cardboard boxes. The boxes are wet and will have to be thrown out (not a big deal) and I just have to keep mopping so that the water does not seep into other areas of the basement. No fun. But I know that there are many, many people suffering floods and other devastation because of the weather. My little water problem is just an annoyance.

Today I am grateful that my Texas family is safe in Missouri.
