Misc. this morning...

Technically
I am supposed to be a vendor
at a short craft show this morning...
technically.
 
So not there...
obviously.
After 4 days of little-to-no sleep
fibro flaring, headache raging
and yesterday the nausea set in...
at which point I had to bite the bullet
and tell my goddaughter I couldn't do it.
I HATE disappointing a 12 year old.
But
her mom will help her and her friend
and I pray they will sell lots of their things.
Mine is sitting in their storage boxes
on my kitchen table.
I hurt so bad last night
it hurt to hold my novel I was trying to read!
Today is a little better
ahhh--the difference some SLEEP can make!
 
 
Please say a prayer or two for this beautiful gal
Her  human brother wrote that
she's having trouble standing this morning...
If you've followed my blog...
you know that
a few years back her elderly owner
decided he could no longer care for her
and was going to have her put down.
My husband and I began a frantic search
to find someone who could take her
(we have 4 inside cats and our home is up on pilings
not good for a senior citizen like Carla...
although she did live with us for week or so!)
A lady from our church came and they fell in love!
Her home was one-level with a huge fenced in yard.
Carla thrived!
It may just be a rough day for her
we've had some cooler weather...
or it may be age catching up with her
both and...
anyway--we covet your prayers
for Carla, her family and our awesome vet!
 
On Wed. night I happened to peek out our front door
and the sunset was beautiful!
I don't know what I did-
but I accidentally changed settings on my camera...
so this isn't as pretty as it was in person
but here's a glimpse to the right...
 
 
 
and here's a glimpse to the left--
that's the ocean below those clouds...
and inbetween the houses...
 
This one is from our Widow's Walk...
looking toward Myrtle Beach
 
And when I went to take the next photos...
I kept seeing these sparkly flashes of light
when the flash would go off..
HUH?
 
as you can plainly see in the other photos---
it was NOT SNOWING---
although that's what this looks like...

 
after the 3rd photo-
I realized what it was---
we have these little tiny bugs we call
no-see-um's.
A gnat-like insect
and if the wind is laid down---
they SWARM the Widow's Walk-
and that's what the light was catching!
 
There was another critter I captured as well...

 
That's the baby (aka INKY) and yes, he's on our roof--
that is 3 stories up!
 


 I DO NOT like to watch him out there!
It makes me terribly nervous--he loves it tho!

 This pic looks spooky!
The flash reflected off his eyes---
 
On another note...
Baby Liam is officially HOME!
He left the NICU earlier this week
and is doing well!
Thank you for your prayers for him!
He's my "nephew's" first-born
and had quite a rough start
but is doing fine now.
 
That's it for me today.
I gotta take it easy---
I may try and label and repack
some of my craft stock
and/or make a couple of cards I need to do--
but I think it's going to me and the bed or couch
or lounge chair on the deck
for the bulk of the day.
Not much choice given how I feel.
Praying the new meds will help
but it's going to take some time...
 
Until next time,
happy stamping and scrapping!
Blessings,
