Hello dear friends, 2022 zipped right along until it is now in the past. Today we've been blessed with the first day of a new year. May we all find peace, be gracious to others, find contentment, live each day fully, and be thankful.  My word for this new year is 'serenity', the state or quality of being serene.  Serene ~ calm and peaceful.   The past three years have been filled with anxiety, fear, unknowns. For me it's been a time of reflection, of looking to Jesus for peace, comfort, provision and protection. There has been more negatives in mainstream media than positive s ..read more

Good morning Folks,  Thanks for all of your prayers. I was pretty calm, although I have to admit a couple of fear niggles did come up, but I prayed and left them with God. I slept good last night.  We had light rain and some wind all day yesterday until around 9:30 last night when we had about 30 minutes of 'heavy' rain with stronger winds. All in all we got around 2 inches of rain. Winds at that time were 27 mph.  All night was rather quiet. I woke up around 3:15 checked the weather and saw that Nicole had made landfall north of me about 56 miles away. She hit as a Cat. one hur ..read more

Greetings from Plum Cottage, I've done my preparing for this storm, except for two window coverings. If the storm gets worse, deacons will be here to finish up what I couldn't. We've had some rain and wind already. The storm could make land fall from our area to north of us in Melbourne. A cat 1 hurricane has winds from 73-90 mph. My dear SIL sent me this song a little while ago and it is very encouraging and faith building. Just what I need. She also is fearful and the song is helping her. Keep us both in prayer. We encourage each other.  Ok, that's the latest. Enjoy each day you are ..read more

Good morning Folks, just before 6 p.m. yesterday, I got an email from electric company saying they were preparing for possible power outages as subtropical storm Nicole could possibly become a hurricane with projected path being my area. Holy Moly! First I had heard about this storm. The adrenaline started pumping and I started thinking of things I needed to do and I started praying. I listened to 'Be Not Afraid', God is in control, and other fear destroying you tube videos. Those helped a lot and I went to bed feeling more peaceful.  Nicole has shifted a bit to the north and I'll be watc ..read more

Greetings Folks ~ Here we are into November. This year has zipped right along. We had a week of lovely cool weather, then it went back up into the 80's, so I'm still using the a.c. It's not as bad as it was a couple of months back. I got out and mowed this morning, I got what I wanted to do done and the battery died. There was a nice breeze and I barely broke a sweat. I hand watered some potted plants afterwards. Rain is expected for a few days, and that would be nice. I do need to do some laundry if the weather is nice tomorrow. I use a 'solar dryer', a clothesline. I enjoy hanging out the we ..read more

Learning curves

Greetings Friends ~ Well, we 'had' a cool spell, only lasted about a week, last week and this week have been back up in the 80's. It looks like it's going to be like this for the next week or so.  It's not as bad as it was during the summer, but still warm enough for using the a.c. Well, I have a new computer with Windows 10. My old computer was from 2011 and Windows 7. So, I am learning my way around windows 10. A young friend of mine from church set me up, transferring files from old to new computer. Nerve wracking, when you are hoping you will have your 'stuff' in new computer. We had ..read more

Good morning Friends ~ Here it is another gorgeous day in s.e. FL. We've had a cool front move over us and it has been wonderful. Wednesday morning the temp dropped to 63 in the middle of the day and basically stayed there until the next day.  This morning it is 66.  I've got some work to do along driveway fencing, clearing out all of the plant life I can, leaving some to be trampled, and leaving what I personally can't take out myself. The old driveway fencing is going to be replaced. I am thrilled to say the least. I want to get out there this morning to get started. I don't know w ..read more

Hello Friends, thank you so much for prayers. Do pray for all who were in Ian's path. There is so much horrible devastation, last I heard 35 lives lost and there could be more as search and rescue continues. This storm came up so fast and turned deadly. I am thankful for being spared. I have to admit I was scared. I prayed, read uplifting Bible verses, listened to and sang some songs. We had strong winds and really strong gusts. In this little wooden cottage I hear so much that freaks me out. Thursday morning I could hear thunder to the southeast, and it was weird sounding. We were under a tor ..read more

Hurricane Ian

Good morning folks, where I am, southeast FL, we are under tropical storm watch. The west coast of FL is bracing for Ian. We will see if it stays on the predicted course, or comes more our way. It if turns this way, I'll have to get out the plywood hurricane shutters. SIGH! I wasn't nervous until a little while ago when I saw a you-tube video saying it could be heading our way, as worse case scenario.  I am praying for all in this hurricane's path. Sorry I've not posted in awhile, summers really drain me of energy, and always make me feel somewhat ill, so I hibernate. Any work I do, is in ..read more
