Update on things

First, a cargo ship from Jacksonville, Fla. to Puerto Rico was lost at sea due to the cat. #4 hurricane, loss of 33 lives.  So tragic.  The Coast Guard, etc. is looking for any survivors, but so far they think all went down when the ship broke up in the storm.  The ship was the El Faro.  Some of the life rafts have been found.
#2- DD and family all safe and well in Sumpter, S. C. There was 7 days of heavy rain there, along with Charleston, and other parts of the state due to a low pressure system.  It kept the hurricane off shore, but really knocked out roads, bridges, etc.  Many people in Columbia had to be evacuated due to flooding.
We signed paperwork and gave the kitchen people a check to re-do the kitchen on Friday last.  It will take 2 weeks for the cabinets to arrive, and be put together.  They will then come out and knock out all the current cabinets, and countertops.  We finally decided on granite, as the quartz that would go with the cabinets was too flat and "bla" looking.  Everything will be very traditional, sort of an off-white color, with darker countertop.  The vinyl flooring will come last, and the new lighting will before the floors (I think).  It will be so wonderful to have good lighting!!
I'm trying to work on a twin red & white quilt for grandson #3.  The top is almost done, just have to put the last 2 strips on the sides.
Getting ready for dinner now.
More later.  Stay safe.
