Outdoor Wednesday


Today I am participating in Outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan at Southern Daydreamer.


I took this picture Tuesday morning before it was very light outside. An owl (can't see him) was hooting out in the backyard and I had to come out and look. That's the moon peeking through the trees.

Now there's never a dull day in Oklahoma. We had a beautiful morning followed by F2 or F3 tornados in the afternoon. There were two or three tornados around us but none were closer than about 4 miles away.

Please remember those who have lost their homes have been hurt in the tornados.

I thought about you when I heard the weather reports this a.m. We get a few tornadoes here but nothing like when we lived in OK. Glad to hear you're safe!

Those were from last year. I see a few daylilies sprouting but so far, that's it!

April said...

Hi Stacey~

When I heard that tornadoes had hit the Ok. City area, I, immediately, thought of you. So relieved to hear that you're OK...those storms can be scary and deadly. I will definitely say a prayer for those who weren't as fortunate.

Amy said...

Oh Stacey,
Tornadoes are so scary. I am so glad you are alright. I imagine that this time of year can be very changeable as far as weather goes. Stay safe! Amy

Wendy said...

Beautiful picture. I'm so glad your okay! I was praying for all of y'all in OK last night!!

Beautiful Pear Tree Lane said...

Shelia said...

Oh, Stacey, prasie God you and your family are safe and sound. I know these storms can just be devastating! My heart and prayers go out to all those who've suffered!

Thanks for you advice on my living room. You know your winged backed chairs are about the color of my walls! My chairs are tufted right now but I want them to be recovered without that this times - just like yours. I love that fabric and you're calling it right. It's beautiful. Your living room is just so lovely!
Thanks Dear One,
Shelia ;)

I was thinking of you Ok bloggers when I saw the news from Edmond this morning. Glad you made it okay.

Empty Nest Full Life said...

The weather here is gorgeous, but I do not look forward to tornado season. I will pray for those families. Jackie

Belinda said...

I love that photo, with the trees and the moon shining brightly...I too love to hear the owls. And isn't it amazing that even though they are quite large creatures, we hardly ever actually see them, just hear their wonderful voices. :-) So glad you are safe...tornadoes are so unpredicatble and terrifying.

Carol said...

I sent you an email Stacey.
Hugs,
Carol

Lori said...

Sit A Spell said...

My mama is in AR, so I was watching the weather channel and talking with her on the phone last night...thought of you when your area was hit so hard.

texasdaisey said...

So glad you are ok. Hoping my other friends in Edmond are ok.
Debbie

Judy said...

Isn't it amazing how quickly a day's events can change? From the peaceful and beautiful moon picture...to nasty tornadoes. So thankful that you all are okay, and truly thinking about those who lost so much. We have a high wind advisory, and that seems minor compared to tornadoes.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Oh Stacey, I did hear about these tornados on the news. Not being very familiar with the geography of OK, I did think of you. So glad you didn't have any. I'm saying a prayer for those who were hit by these tornados. laurie

Darlene said...

We were watching a lot of the tornados in Edmond and I'm glad you were not damaged by any of them. In our area it ended up being an EF 4! They said winds of 166 miles per hour. SCARY!!

Rachael said...

Stacey-

I am glad you are okay! I wondered about you when I saw those tornadoes on the weather channel!

Stay safe :-)

Barb said...

Glad you are ok, I have family in OK and thankfully they are all fine....Barb

Stacey @ The Blessed Nest said...

Ohh, I'm glad that you're ok!! Must have been a scary time!

Bo said...

Hi Stacey...I am so glad the storms missed you and I have been keeping the others in my prayers.
;-) Bo

Daphine said...

Yep, we heard about the tornados there. Glad you're okay.

Will definitely say a prayer for those who are now without a home.

Blessings friend!

bj said...

Hi, Stacey girl...well, did your sweetie man bring you candy and flowers for V. Day? Mr. SweetNothings brought me a pretty card and a large heart-shaped box of CHOCOLATE COVERED STRAWBERRIES. OH, MY...I did give him the biggest hug and kiss, too! tee hee.
Hope your Sunday is a great one...
