It's been one of those weeks and I'm glad its behind me, it started off well with mild temps and dry air, my flowers were all blooming, I was in and out of the mechanics shop with an oil change and new wiper blades, I renewed my gym membership for another year and the newest branch of my bank opened five minutes from my house, so far pretty good until this:
The house next door is a group home and this one man has attacked 3 times in the last 3 months, the last incident had him punching and banging on my car, the first incident had him trying to force his way into the house, when he couldn't get in the door he punched my son in the stomach. Being compassionate people we didn't press charges for assault as the man is mentally retarded we had hoped he would have been given a better caregiver. The second incident he was issued a tresspass warrant and we were told nothing more could be done because of his diminished mental capacity, well incident number three with the mailbox was the last straw. I was told this same person forced himself into the house next door and still no arrest.
I called the state of Florida social services department to make a formal complaint with my concerns which made the criteria for endangered or neglected adult so an investigator should be out to check up on the home to make sure all is in order and this week I will see an attorney to inquire what more can be done or should have been done. I want to know what about my rights? I do know one thing for sure I will protect myself from physical attack at all cost, stuff like the mailbox can be replaced.
So this week I had great need to do some slow stitching, for this Slow Sunday Stitching I have my hand embroidery on block 8 started and I could feel some of the tension slipping away as I stitched.

I find myself wanting to stitch more so I have some little tidbit to share each week.
