Thank you Canada!

Saturday night I was working. Rusty called me to tell me that the fires had peaked the ridge! So I walked out of my bosses house, who lives across the lake, and sure enough the fire was coming down the mountain!

A few hours later the fire was gone! Canada sent down this water dropping aircraft, and it had dropped water on the mountain. Thank you Canada.

Yesterday I took time out of my hectic schedule to go by the lake and get a picture of this massive bird. I am so glad that it is docked in our lake. I think that is the biggest thing to our town in a while.

I have been working some crazy hours. Rusty has been working some really long hours. Last night we were both so dead dog tired, but we actually sat up until midnight just talking. It still amazes me at jut how much I love this man. I miss him so, when we are not together.

Rusty told me last night that we are not going to the ball on Friday. What? I bought a dress! I was so prepared to make small talk with strange women. I was all ready to hear all of your stories again. No ball this week. I guess that is o.k.

I am not sure if I have to work today. What I do know for sure is that I have to get this house cleaned up. The children are bitching because I have not cooked in a very long time. So I will cook dinner tonight.

I have to go mail a package, do laundry, and get some more sewing done. I swear my house work should go away when I am working a job that I actually get paid for!

Well I guess I better get dressed and get moving. I have so much that I need to do and I am just hoping to get some it accomplished today! LOL

Give me an hour of Michael's uninterrupted time over ANY party, any vacation, anything in the world. Our pillow talk is the best part of my day. It's where we laugh and giggle and ... stuff. Glad the fires didn't get you!

It is amazing what some real fire fighting equiipment can do.  So glad they stopped the fire in its tracks. But sorry you are not going to the ball.  I was looking forward to pics.  Tell Rusty he is disappointing us, too.  Oh well, maybe this is not a good time, too many people in California hurt and upset over all they have lost in the fire.  I noted on the news that a kid was arrested for starting one fire.  That burned homes.  What is to be done?  Glad you have escaped as much damage as you have.   I bet it will be nice to get back on schedule again.  It will make you appreciate hum drum life!   Gerry

That is soooo cool that Canada helped us out like that. YAY Canada! That's an impressive piece of equipment there. I bet that was quite a sight seeing that fire come over the ridge. I'd have been so scared!
Have a good day.
