autumn blessingsI cannot believe I almost let August go by without one entry here.Autumn is right around the corner.  I guess I have been busy getting through the hot days and nights of summer. Gone are the blogging days when we never missed a day to post what was happening in our world. Facebook and twitter are so immediate to everyone blogs take a back seat. It’s been 10 years now since that horrible hurricane  Katrina reached our gulf coast states and destroyed so many lives. I add this photo here. It was something that I could not believe. A stadium full of people who were trying to survive in the floods that occurred that day. dome20evacueesTen years later things are better but not back to total normal. Many homes will never be rebuilt and many moved away and relocated. Here is a link to a good report of how things are going now.

Here in my neighborhood..People are moving in and out in a pretty good pace here in the complex. We have had a weird summer of cold days and then really hot days. The local county fair came and went and the farmer’s market is loaded with vendors selling the last of their crop for the year. Soon apple and pumpkins will take over. Just didn’t seem like the summer lasted long enough this year…I dread the long long winter months. So for now I will just keep this here as  a reminder..beach












I was a caregiver for the elderly on and off for over 30 years.I am now retired and enjoying a new life. I love blogging and have kept a personal journal for 40 years. I enjoy the freedom of being creative and interacting with the millions of other bloggers in the world.I love learning the new things that the computer world has to offer. I have made friends that will last a lifetime blogging, something I never ever thought would happen. I hope you enjoy my blog,and will continue to visit me in the future.

We’ve had some weird weather here in Pembroke too, Carol…will not miss the heat but know what you mean about the long winter…lots of people moving around here too, but that seems to be the norm for the seasons…a lot of changing location just prior to school starting…fought with my ac all summer, will NOT be sorry when that machine is out of my window,LOL! love, Katie.

  2. I look forward to fall—the weather and the colors! My favorite time of year! Enjoy the tail end of summer. We’re looking forward to some RAIN to tame these fire conditions all around us.
