(sam niemeier on ellen a couple of weeks ago)
yesterday, i awoke to news that italy had suffered a devastating earthquake. my heart totally jumped a beat!!! our dear friends, the niemeiers (moonpie in the sky), are there in salsomaggiore with the us pizza team for the world championships.
before they got on the plane last thursday, i received an email as well as a phone text from "the notorious d" stating that they were italy-bound. that's the last communication i've had with them; hence, i've been more than a bit worried...
since the events are being held several hours north of the epicenter of the quake, i want to trust that they are all safe and sound. i have several times checked the team's blog for information; however, i get a message stating that their server is "down". hopefully, this just means that they are experiencing power grid problems!!!
please, send up a prayer for their safe return home as well as for all those who have been effected by this disaster!!!
yesterday, while sun bathing by the pool here in florida, i phoned home. john said that it was snowing and sleeting:? i told you all we'd been experiencing crazy weather in kentucky this year:/ he said, other than the VERY cold snap, all was good on the home-front:)
meanwhile, other than sunday, we have had beautiful weather here in florida!!! saturday was a beach day then off for dinner at joe's crab shack; yesterday was a pool day then off for a late lunch to pompano joe's for some amazing jamaican cuisine.
yes, it is as is sounds... a sunning and eating vacation:) "does it get any better than that???" i ask!!! and, yes, we have already had too much sun as well as too much food; but that is how we roll, ha:P
i leave you with a little fun...
ps. as always, thank you for the prayers!!!
