While we are not being directly affected by Michael in the East Pasco area, many of my family and friends to the north are or will be. It's amazing that just over a year ago I was in Taylorsville, Mississippi escaping Irma. A few weeks ago, that same area took basically a direct hit from a hurricane, albeit a small one if not a tropical storm. And here we are almost half-way through October and Michael is about to hit land.

I leave you with an image found online...

Praying Hands and Cleaning House

Let's start with the cleaning house bit. No, not my actual house. I recently went through the blogs that I follow list and removed several from my list. Mainly due to inactivity for more than a year. While doing this, I noticed several are no longer available and/or have no way to "Unfollow." I wonder how I can remove those from my list? Life goes on, I suppose...

I have done a bit more stitching on Praying Hands in recent weeks and have meant to share a post before now.

I'm hoping to pick up my stitching again in coming weeks. For now, I am taking things slow as I continue to deal with some health issues. Have a few more tests to do and then I'm sure there will be consults. Possibly surgery. But all I can do is put my faith in God's plan for me.

Someday... Yea

I wish I could tell you how I really feel. The flirting is fun, but I am beginning to develop feelings that go beyond friendship. Maybe you're not the one. Maybe you are. Only God knows for sure. I just want to say the words, but find those words sticking - not coming out. Why are you so handsome, so kind, so funny and fun? Why did you come into my life? Am I reading too much into the flirtatiousness? Am I just that lonely and longing for companionship, fulfilling companionship? I don't know.

I do know there is a fine line.

I do know that the sound of your voice, the emails and texts, they all bring a smile to my face. At a time when I feel so much sadness. I know the desires of my heart. God knows the desires of my heart. Do the two really meet? Or is it just my mind and the games of the dark one?

Praying Hands update

As promised, an update. The first picture is where I left off.

The second picture is what I completed recently. Mainly part of the left border to the top of the chart so I can complete that top section without getting off count. 

I got this chart from Yiota's XStitch. You can view her stuff on Etsy or Facebook.

Lettuce Lake Park (picture heavy)

Went on a little walk in nature yesterday. What started out as a visit to the local VA Hospital for an ultrasound on my kidney turned into a jaunt at Lettuce Lake Park in Tampa. Here are some pictures from what I saw.

This heron didn't know what to make of the gator

These are from my latest "pour" that is an abstract of Patriotic
