Hurricane Irma

All I can say is what a mess the next hurricane could create, and praying everyone in the path stays safe.

In the meantime, I need to restock on food and I hope that the grocery stores are back to normal. The gas stations have had a lot of covers over the pump. No gas.

The USS Kearsarge and USS Oak Hill, which were headed to provide relief in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, are staying off the east coast of southern Florida for the next few days — out of the path of Irma — awaiting a decision as to whether they will they proceed to Texas or be ready to help with Irma, according to a military official.Ryder also told CNN that Air Force search and rescue teams that were assisting in Texas have “returned to their home stations to recover and prepare for a potential response to Hurricane Irma.” http://www.cnn.com/…/key-west-navy-evacuation-hu…/index.html

Prayers go out to all that face the wrath of Hurricane Irma.

The US military has ordered the evacuation of over five thousand personnel from a Naval Air Station in Florida in preparation for Hurricane Irma.

Late…Late…Late

I received an email from the journalist who is writing the story on me for the university that I received my graduate degree from and so I was in the middle of responding to her when someone knocks on the door.

I figure it’s my battery operated radio I ordered for the storm, that still hasn’t arrived. That’s okay. I’ll be all set when we have another. Though hopefully we won’t have anything this bad again. I keep saying this because the flooding last year wasn’t supposed to have happened either.

It wasn’t the delivery man! My daughter showed up with baby and wanted to take a walk as she’s going stir crazy. Man, was it hot out. And muggy. And hot. We walked nearly 4 miles.

On the walk, we saw a great white heron, an impassable walkway for the baby in her buggy, toadstools, and a maintenance guy was going around to all the trash receptacles and letting out all the water in them.

Then we went to a restaurant that was open, just to get out. She’s going back to work early to deal with deliveries of food to her school district, but the kids and rest of the staff won’t be starting back until the 11th.  Too many staff members were affected by the flooding.

We donated to an animal shelter last night, and I just learned one of our local authors lost everything in the flood, so off to donate for her.

Hope your day is great!

Fairy Mushrooms–Night and Day

Actually, the first one was taken in the early morning hours when it was really dark out, and the second, midday when it was pouring out.  See what a difference it makes when the lighting is different? From autumn moodiness to spring brightness.

That was supposed to be curly parsley that the fairies were tending to, but it looks like they started a mushroom garden instead. You know how the fae are.

I just got the final proofing for Heart of the Wolf for re-release in January. I didn’t know that I could make any changes to the actual book–I’d been working on the final changes to the novella I added–but they’re giving me the opportunity to make changes to the decade-old book. That’s like a redo button. Yay! What did I say ten years ago???? I have no idea.

Okay, behind on Billionaire still, and planned to catch up, but then….the proofing came and I always have like 2 weeks, and that’s it.

Off to work. Think we have more rain and it’s been flooding in some areas, so this is a great time to stay home and write/edit!

Have a lovely day!!
