First Sky Photos in November

 Happy November!

Things are still busy at my end but I'm also feeling a bit sick and it has been raining a whole lot. Pouring rain in fact.

I'm on some new medications and it is upsetting my stomach and making me feel nauseous now and then. I'm on the lowest possible dosage and trying to adjust to it but it is slow going.  Other than that, the medicine seems to be doing what it is supposed to but doctors want me to work up to taking more as I'm not anywhere near a full dose yet. I would hate to have to stop it taking it. For now I'm not complaining too loudly to the doctor.

I've been busy with multiple appointments and follow ups with insurance people regarding my accident. I guess I'm about half way through this process and I don't have the energy to do much about the follow up just now. It will all get done soon enough if I just put one foot in front of the other.

Given the pouring rain I haven't been able to get out and take photos but there was a slight break in the sky on Thursday so I captured these 3 photos to share (click on each to enlarge).

In other news, I wanted to update about Janet and her girls in Kenya; the separated woman who was chased away from her ancestral (birth family) home by her brother.  We have now managed to assist her with 2 months rent, an inexpensive smart phone, a bit of food money, a simple solar light system, and a bit of funds to stock her new store. Pastor Jonah ordered the phone for her and she was expecting to collect the phone on Wednesday, Kenyan time.  Janet and her eldest daughter are travelling to Nakuru, Kenya on Thursday, Kenyan time where they will visit wholesalers to try to find appropriate stock for the village store. I know her eldest daughter has her own thoughts about what her mother should stock but I am trying, through Pastor Jonah, to get them to buy what is most practical for the majority of potential shoppers. Later when they have started to gain footing they can expand to others things. It's a bit tricky as the eldest girls have minds of their own and they are putting pressure on the mom during her most difficult time. Please keep them in prayer. There are some other developments concerning the brother but I will leave that update for when I have concrete information to share. If anyone would like to donate (Pay Pal link on right side of blog) to Janet and her daughters, they still have many needs: rent, air time, food,transportation, school fees and clothing among them.

Over the next month I've got a lot going on, some of it fun.  I hope to share here as time goes by and if I'm permitted to take photos at events.

Joining in with Skywatch Friday.

Take care.


  1. I hope once your body adjusts to the meds, things will be a little better -- or that they can find a good alternative. I can't imagine the hassle of dealing with the aftermath of the accident. I hope you will be very well compensated.

    1. Thank you Jeanie. It seems to be taking long to adjust to the meds but I hope I can do it! The compensation will not be so good since the province changed it's legislation last spring by moving to no fault insurance and capping settlements (to lower car insurance rates).

  2. Great sky shots of autumn ~ Xo

  3. Sorry to hear about your health woes. Feel better.

  4. Wishing you a speedy recovery. Hopefully the side effects will slowly disappear after your body gets used to those new meds!

  5. Sorry about your fmedical issues. It is hard to keep up with things during such times.

  6. Hope you will soon be feeling better with the new meds and that they will do the job they are intended for. I am sorry for the woman in Kenya, but how wonderful that she is going to be able to start a new business venture that will support her. Praying God will take care of her and protect her in every way. Love your sky photos. Praying for your general good health and healing and strength. (((hugs)))

  7. I do hope you will adjust to your new medication soon, if you don't perhaps your medical team will be able to find suitable alternatives.

    Lovely images on your post.

    All the best Jan
