{its a blustery day, pooh!}

holy cannelloni batman!! for the last 2 days it has been intensely windy and rainy, the wind gusts and rain have been very intense at times!! i am so over it, i can't even tell you! the kids are out of school, mark is out of work (yeah!), but i am working and i have decided to commission the bank to get windshield wipers for the drive-thru window... i can hardly see out of them. On the upside, we haven't lost electricity. Just a few little "brown outs" every now and then and believe it or not, but satellite has been great. That is still shocking to me because in Virginia if it even threatened a little rain, the satellite went out...and the electricity would go out on a perfectly beautiful day! I am loving the underground electricity, what an invention! well, we've got lots of party prepping for tonight. Mark and the kids are going to start making Lumpia today which I haven't made since we lived in Hawaii. Its a recipe that I got from a little phillipino lady at our church. i am kinda excited about it. Please Fay go away, you are not exactly helping with the whole luau theme of poor Lex's party.

I hope Fay leaves you soon - but don't send her our way...giggle...
Lumpina (?) - ok, I have to know...what the heck is it? I am interested in all things Hawaiian.
Hope you have a GREAT weekend!
HUGS!

Lumpia sounds interesting?

Hope Fay is firmly in your past now.

Hope the weather clears up for the B-Day party. I'm intrigued, what is Lumpia?
Happy POW!
