surprise me not

I feel as though I am sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for a surprise.
 A part of me loves surprises and then a part of me not so much. 
 As we sit waiting for Storm Sandy to surprise us or not, we all wonder what sort of wallop lies ahead as we busy ourselves with routine tasks to make us all feel as though we were in control (not).
Here is my pretty white pumpkin perched on a plate with a pretty porcelain berry that I found on my walk.  
I plan to continue on, about my daily business and my routine
Stormy Sandy, surprise me not.

Everyone, be safe and I hope we can all keep calm and carry on.
Let's hope we are all ready and that there are no surprises.

I'm hoping it is a mild version once it gets here....but East Coast people are prepared and use to this type of weather. I was in NJ when Irene hit I watched my BIL and learned from the best. Stay safe!

Waiting for the storm to come is almost worst than having it here! Kids are home and the lights are still on... Fingers crossed that we're seeing the worst of it.

Hope you still have power...we had dinner quite early thinking it was just about to go, but still on. Your pumpkin is dressed quite beautifully! I love those berries. Are they really called porcelain berries?
