Weather or Not

I have been praying for Houston during their troubles. Now I have added Florida to the list. When will it stop?

As someone who lives in a state where hurricane has been known to hit, to me, storms are scary. Watching the Weather Channel, I wonder how we would react, sitting bumper to bumper in evacuation traffic. I feel sad for them, as your home and belongings are left behind. You wonder , if you come back, what you’ll come back to. Watching people call the Florida Attorney General and report price gauging makes me wonder, although I know the answer; don’t people have a conscience ? Taking advantage of people in the most stressful of situations is just downright wrong!

Keep the hurricane evacuees in your thoughts, and send some prayers or good thoughts their way!

For the rest of the nation, I would only wish more people would realize that Mother Nature isn’t fooling,

Hurricane Matthew

It’s the scary time of the year, and I am not referring to Halloween.

As I type this, Governor Rick Scott of Florida is issuing an update on Hurricane Matthew, including housing, mandatory evacuations, traffic, gauging, …I could go on and on.I am working my prayers for all concerned down there,as I can’t even fathom what is going on there.

In the meanwhile, things are kind of quiet here** knock wood**.

You can tell it’s October because I managed two things.

I managed to get Kasia and Zush to both sit for a picture with the pumpkin.

I also managed to get my mums.

Stay safe where ever you are!

Fall

  
I could never live in Florida, or any place where leaf color changes never occur.

I was the type of kid who, in grammar school, always went for the forest scenes on folders. Be it leafy, verdant green forests, or trees ablaze in their autumnal coats, you could have made book on the choice I’d make.

Being older now, raking becomes part of the season and my admiration for the colors never fades.

After all, there is always the promise of spring to wait for!
