5 a.m. update: Irene expected to stay off coast of Southeastern North Carolina
Hurricane Irene strengthened overnight and is expected to become a major hurricane Wednesday, according to the 5 a.m. update from the National Hurricane Center.

The current projected path shows the eye staying off the coast of Southeastern North Carolina, but hurricane force winds could brush the coast on Saturday.

A hurricane warning is in effect for Turks and Caicos Islands and the Bahamas.

At 5 a.m., Irene was moving west-northwest near 9 mph. A gradual turn toward the northwest is expected Wednesday. Maximum sustained winds are near 110 mph and Irene is a Category 2 storm.

Wow again almost a month gone between posts??

I can't believe its been almost a month since I last posted!!
I have been busy & still loving my new job!! I been getting stuff done around the house that was put on the back burner. My head is starting to be more clear & focused on the important things!!
I fired AT&T on the 16 & got a smartphone with US cellular & it's way smarter than me!! LOL They set me up with a gmail account & I told her I had set up a Google account with my MSN email & she said it wouldn't change anything! Wrong answer!! It changed everything, so I've been changing everything to work with the new email & I think I got it!!
I've been going green in my home & I tell you unplugging things you don't use everyday has made a huge difference in my elec. bill!! I'm loving it!!
Today I fixed my hot tub!! It was leaking so I shut it down awhile back, the water level only went down just pass the jets. So I found the jet wrench & went to work on the 2 jets that were closest to where it was leaking & ta da that was it!! Yippee!! So while I waited for it to fill back up I fixed my side screen door closer!! Than as a reward I floated around in the hot tub on my raft!
I finished quilting funky feathers on a quilt of Mom's!!

I also got the piecing done on the Chiclets quilt just need to get it's picture!!
