Irma Is Ghastly!!

September 10, 2017

Good morning.  It's quite lovely here, but down South, Hurricane Irma (Cat 4) has made landfall in the Florida Keys.  The winds are horrific, and are being felt throughout the southern part of the state.  I'm watching storm videos on TV.  It is showing how bad the winds (gusting over 100 miles an hour) are in Miami along with some flooding, and Miami is one hundred miles away from the center of the storm. 

The eye of the storm is heading to make landfall in or near Naples, in the southwest part of Florida.  I have a stepson and two grandchildren living in Naples, and my son Gary Jr. also lives on the West side of Florida too, only he's further North.  I also have other grandchildren and some very dear friends living in Florida.  I pray that they will all come through this wicked storm safely. 

There's not much happening here.  I've been crocheting, trying to finish up these hat and scarf sets.  The blue (Lapis Lazuli) set is finished, and is really quite pretty.

I started working on the pink set (Tourmaline) and after just a few rows, I ran into some really bad yarn.  It just wasn't workable and there was quite a lot of it so I called the company where I bought the yarn.  They were really nice and are sending me two new skeins of the yarn. 

I've been looking over the yarn color pages in the Herschners catalogue, and I'm trying to decide which colors to order for another afghan.  Some of the colors are so yummy looking, they could be served up on a platter.  hahaha.

Daughter Deanne and Janice stopped by a couple days ago, and brought me a new little solar thingy for my porch.  This one is a scarecrow and pumpkins for Autumn, and is ever so cute.

Today I have a new quick page for you.  This one is just a bit of "watermelon whimsy."  Have fun with it.

Here is your download link:

Now I think I'll make a fresh cup of coffee and do a bit of blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Hi Edna,
I pray that your family and friends in Florida will be alright. This storm is a monster. It is late here but not finding much information on Irma as I thought that I would.

I stayed up late last night watching a TV series. Before I knew it, I looked at the clock and it was 2:30 in the morning. Cisco kept whimpering when Nathan brought him to me me. I would try to play and cuddle and he would cry. So I gave him a lot of love, but I put him back into his bed in case it is his arthritis bothering him. I am sure that it is the change in weather as the nights are getting cooler and the days are hot. Plus we have had some rain around us so I am just hoping that is what is wrong.

Karyn called me at 10:00 this morning. Matthew has lost his good winter jacket. I looked around here but did not find it. I knew that it wasn't here. I tried to get Matt to pack it with his winter things, but as always he was in such a hurry to get his things he said he would do it later and now he can't find it. Oh Well.

I am going to go and work on my blog. I will call you later on in the day. I hope that you got that nap yesterday. Hugs to you and Pogo from me and Cisco. Have a good day my friend. xx

That hurricane Irma is a bad one. It hit very stronly the island of St.Maarten, which is part ot the Kingdon of the Netherelands.
Lots of people lost there houses, there is a lot of dammage on everything, so it will take time and money to get all in order again.
They were kind f lucky that the next storm Jose didn;t hit them in full force too.
Hope your family will be safe in Florida.
Oh, I should comment on more things of your psts, but I took already lot of time and it is time I wake up Jan and get busy around here.
Sending big hug
