FLOWER SATURDAY--

But first I did some slow stitching--
and I mean it has been slowwww stitching--
but one more area is done on the Fall sampler--
three little pumpkins that took at least 3 days to finish--

the next section is a quilt block and I need to change a color or two there--
but plan to start is soonnnn!!!!!

I did get dressed today long enough to go for a short walk and to sit in the sun a bit--
though that air was on the chilly side--
here is some great colors of  mums--








these are all planned all over the big hotel's property at the end of our parking lot--

I am still in alot of pain and discomfort--
the only comfort I have is--I have to be at least half way through the blisters   --right???
don't know if the side pain will ever go away though--at least it feels like it is never going to go away!!!  Soon--Soon----??????

        ENJOY YOUR SUNDAY AND 
 SOME SLOW STITCHING--DI

PARKING

Look at what has been parked right outside
my windows--
front end in front of the bedroom windows--
and the rest of the truck in front of the living room window--
and I can actually open my windows and touch the truck--
seems we are getting a roof on the building--
and they started on my little corner of the world!!!!
hope they don't leave it parked here all night!!!!???

********************************
and yes there is the cross stitch all set up-
now if someone would just 'feel' better and go over to it and put some
stitches in it ---that would be nice!!!

ENJOY THE VIEW FROM YOUR 
WINDOWS TODAY--DI

ON MY WALK

Last Sunday--
before I became housebound--
I found this interesting flower--
look how the center wraps around--



Looks just like a 'donut' with flower petals coming out the center!!!


Here is a normal bloom--
most of the flowers are about done for this year--

this looks like snow piled up here--

and a new butterfly for me--
a Cabbage White--
now to print it off and add it to my scrapbook!!

enjoy, di

WHAT IS GOING ON--

with me--
besides trying to find comfortable furniture and unpacking--

Unfortunately things here have not gone well at all--
and for the last 9 days have been in alot of pain--
and this week has found me --
Monday at a walk in clinic--then to the hospital for test--
seeing 2 doctors and then this morning a trip to the ER--
and today they discovered the reason for the pain--
and this is the doctors words-
"you have an Impressive case of the 'shingles'"
and they are going to be bad--by the looks of my front and back on the right
side of my body--
so this next week will not be a fun one for me for sure--
and the medicine they have given me to try to help it some--
is not agreeing with me either---
sooooooo???????

I believe part of the problem besides the stress of the move
and all the problems with furniture
is this apt is very 'unsafe' for someone like me who has chemical issues--
even with knowing my health issues and how concerned I was with even them shampooing the carpet and painting in here and that the apt needed to be aired out for 2 weeks before I got here--
the manager decided to have it sprayed heavily with pesticide--a very strong one--
and she did not call me in  Fl to tell me as I would never have moved back--at least not at this time--

so the good part is-
(we have to have a good part --don't we???)
is I have not boughten the good mattress and box springs--
or my good rocker--
so those 2 pieces of furniture will not have absorbed the chemicals--
though at this point I fear all my quilts and clothing have and will have to be laundered--
(my fabric is safe--it is all in large plastic bags--so won't have to launder them--)

so I have no idea where my future or life is going from here-
just know that I am not in for a fun week--
so any extra  prayers you send my way are greatly appreciated, and needed--
thank you--

SUNDAY--

First up is an actual --
photo of some work--
stitching kind of work--even--
one big section on the bottom of the Fall counted cross stitch is now
all stitched in==
had to learn a new 'set-up" for stitching with the move--
but did find a spot--
so this is for--

I also have a new project in the knitting basket-
really wanted to do something different after I just finished the lastest baby sweater
this week-
so this is it--
can anyone 'guess' what I am working on--

and as for this report--
I have to say I have lost 'total' track of the days--
I know I did really good until the move on Aug 27th--
but other than the counted cross stitching the last 2 days and
the knitting a bit each night--
I have not done any other stitching--not even on my hearts-
but we got a whole new week coming up--
so--
we will wait with 'bated breath' to see if Di gets to sew this week?????
In the meantime it is getting near the time to go racing with NASCAR this afternoon--!!

And over on Di's workbasket site (upper left hand corner)
is a few more photos of the Glass barge and the tug boats--

ENJOY A PET TODAY--DI

ANOTHER ONE--

For the 3rd Week end in a row--
this village has another big event--
It is a big event from Corning Glass works--
they are celebrating 150 yrs--

and they Floated a big barge and a couple ships to  end of the lake--
you could sit on the bleachers and watch them make a glass bowl--
this barge was on one side of the pier--
and these 2 vessels are on the other side of the pier and you can tour the larger one!!
and no festival is complete with out lots of food booths--
found this one and it made me smile--
and of course lots of music--
single acts-
and--
later in the evening bands--

and then some vendor booths--
liked this one--
and last night they had fireworks-
and they will have some tonight as well--
hopefully more on them tomorrow--

IN THE MEAN TIME--DO SOMETHING SPECIAL TOMORROW--DI

BUSY LITTLE BEE--

I did also get a photo of this bee on my weekend walk--
He was at the morning glory house--
"oh yummy--pollen--
"oh wait--there is some 'sweeter' pollen even down further in the flower"

**************************************
Remember when I almost moved to NY a year ago--
well--
that apartment would of been on the 2nd floor on this end of the building-
and do you the that huge piece of equipment--
it is working right under where my windows would of been--
they are also digging and building some kind of pump in the ground in that part of the yard-
they say they will be out there working for 6 months on it--ouch!!!  They are preparing to move the sewer system a mile down the road and out in the swamp area--there!!!!

and I don't have to look at it or really hear all that equipment working from where I am now--
instead this is what is outside my window--
my new hanging aster plant--
and this is the barrel of flowers that are under it-
and beyond the fence and to the right of the barrel is my view of the lake!!

I did take the bus to Walmart this morning--
and this afternoon I walked over town to the yarn shop==
and bought me a skein of yarn to knit me some mittens for this winter!!!

AND OF COURSE MY HEART AND PRAYERS GO OUT TO THE EAST COAST--
AND ALL THE HOMES, BUSINESS, AND NATURE THAT IN THE PATH OF FLORENCE--
WE ARE WITH YOU--

COLORS ARE EVERYWHERE--

I missed flowers--
and color--
that is one reason I returned to NY state--
(there are more reasons--but I missed flowers)
so on a short Sunday walk
I took me some flower photos
Black eyed Susan's--
how I missed you--
a favorite for me--
lots of orange flowers here--
lots of roses in this garden--
and lots of different colored ones at that--
these blooms were huge--
and I liked these tiny white flowers on this vine--

and then there was the Morning Glory home--
and talk about morning glories--
this house and front yard was loaded with pretty Morning Glories--
Ok enough for today--

we have another event here this week end at the end of the lake-
so hopefully I can share some photos of that--
THOUGH--
I  know it will be hard to enjoy it--
worrying about all my blog friends on in SC, NC and Virginia--
Be safe all of you--we need you

ENJOY YOUR HOME AND PETS TODAY-
AND TAKE TIME TO ADMIRE A FLOWER
OR SOMETHING COLORFUL TODAY--DI
