We all need a little sunshine in our lives these days.
2020 has been one for the records so far.
Covid, protests, crazy weather...
Have you ever heard of a Derecho?
We had one here a few weeks ago.
Its a large powerful thunderstorm with straight line winds,
that cause widespread destruction.
80 mph winds, ripped out 2 of our almost 100 year old trees.
Many old trees in town were destroyed, store windows were blown out,
campers flipped, roofs blown off, oil tanks under construction collapsed.
It was quick and crazy.
Power went out, but thankfully we were only effected for about 2 1/2 hours.
It took 2 1/2 days, for many to get theirs back.
I'm hoping in my heart of hearts that it blew away any signs of the Covid virus

I love seeing when I go into my quilt room every day.
...and if you need another reason to smile
With all the destruction from our "Derecho",
my toilet planter was untouched!
So thank you Carla, for helping get us out of our "funk"
by stitching a little "Sunshine".
Do you ever find yourself thinking the universe is telling you something?
Just after I finished writing the post, I treated myself to a dark chocolate
You know how they always share words of wisdom on their sticks...
Yep, it's a sign I tell you.
And if "Dove Bars" tell you so, you know it has to be the gospel!
Please visit my fellow bloggers and see what is sunny,
in their neck of the woods.
