It's scary down here!

Trying to keep occupied by pulling out some orange and black. We've been waiting for Irma for days and it's nerve wracking. We've done what we could in order to prepare...considering the store shelves emptied out early in the week. We have been here before, just never for a storm of this magnitude. 

Please keep all of those in the path of this storm, as well as those who have already been touched by Irma, in your thoughts and prayers. We have so many friends who are our family in the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale many people we love all over the state. 

I've been away from keeping me busy. I know my friends in blogland are all out there...please think good thoughts and send some down our way.

Enjoy the day,


  1. We have family and friends down in FL too. Will also keep you in our thoughts as well. Lets all pray it heads NE before it hits FL.Janice

  2. For sure Robyn, you, Annie and family will be in our prayers. Your orange and black setting is rather spooky, a perfect way to redirect those other scary thoughts.
    Hope the rest of your day will be a pleasant one with Peace for all...

  3. Thanks, ladies. We just got family through Harvey in Houston...they did o.k.. It's been a stressful couple of weeks!

  4. I have family in the Houston area and they survived unscathed. I've a few friends in Naples, Florida and saying prayers for them. I love your orange and black display.

  5. Robyn, your black and orange display is very beautiful.

    I've been thinking of you and your love ones and I'm praying that you will all be OK and safe from the wrath of the storm. Very, very scary...

    Wishing you all God's merciful blessings for safety.
    Warm hugs, prayers and concern for your safety.

  6. always keeping you in thought and especially now in our prayers ~

  7. God bless you and your family. Will be thinking of you and praying for your safety and those in her path.

  8. I stopped into walmart after work today to pick up a few things and I felt guilty that I had such easy access to the water and bread. My friends daughter headed out last night with her family she lives in the Boyton Beach area they went out after 9pm and made it to Maryland tonight. She has little children I was so happy she left. Prayers to everyone.

  9. Stay safe, Robyn. Waiting for a hurricane is familiar territory for me -- I'll be thinking of you and all those affected. Lots of prayers.

  10. Hi Robyn,
    Sending you lots of Hugs, thoughts, and prayers, sweet friend!
    Big Heart Hugs~
