Mom says I should enjoy the sunshine and the open windows as long as I can because Irene is coming.
Usually when we have company, Mom makes the house look nice. Instead, Mom has moved all the small stuff from the porch to the basement, and moved the flower planters off the railings.Mom went food hunting last night, because she said if she went today it would be crazy. It turned out to be crazy when she was there last night. She said the store did not have any Bananas! Can you imagine? No bananas. Mom bought strawberries instead. Fortunately, Mom also stocked up on stinky goodness for me!
Even though Mom does NOT want Irene to come here, she will be cooking a chicken, some eggs and even baking a cake! I told Mom I thought that was pretty dumb, but she explained that if we lose electricity we will have food to eat, and she said, what the heck, having a cake would be good too.
So we're ready and waiting. Irene should be here on Sunday, and she will be bringing her strong winds (60 MPH) and lots and lots of rain. We hope all our other friends will be safe.
