Looks like we may be looking at a short autumn with snow expected. My area of Lake Erie is noted for "Lake Effect" Snow. The good thing about it is, the people east of us where the state goes back up north usually get hit earlier and harder than we do. Don't get me wrong.. I love cold weather.. but I can live without snow. Nowdays, I can't even dres in my sweaters and turtlenecks, because the flippin hot flashes have come back with a vengence. I have to dress
with something that I can strip down to and still be respectable.

I went to the doctor to get my annual diabetic eye exam. If this was my eye, this would be what it looks like. I'm not crazy enough to take flash photos of my dilated eyes. My eyes are healthy although he said "I'd like to see your fasting blood glucose a little lower (200-300). I just said "so would I". I'm starting a new med, and I'm going to see a nutritionist. I really want to get a handle on this. I've taken meds for it for 10 years, but it seems to be getting out of control. Anyway, it has been 5 hours and my vision is still ringed with clouds..

Here are some of the fabrics that I got from my recent "Break up the Kits" clean out. I am much more interested in making my own creations than working on someone else's.. I will put this stuff to good use. I have more photos, but Blogger is being a pain in the posterior. I can't get the other to upload. I have been trying for days to get my Art Quilter ring button below everything else, and all it tells me is, Error.. try again. Geesh...

Being a former northeastern Ohio gal I know about lake effect snow. As kids we used to tunnel through ten foot high drifts. I think it would be a cool photo to have orange trees against the white snow.
