Ninety two degrees at 6pm. There are about 40 active fires burning roughly 600,000 acres in Montana right now with no end in sight–no rain, none in the next ten day forecast. Our friend Eileen Ewan took the next photo–during our forest fire scare last Saturday. That fire is now considered contained.
With a list a mile long I spent the day on the phone and completing paperwork. Just little chores which pile up and all of a sudden need doing. I also had something exciting to do–I cleaned my sock drawer and under the bathroom counter–now isn’t that exciting!! 🙂 But it gave me a great sense of accomplishment–doesn’t take much to please this retired girl! 🙂 I’ve finished longarming two small quilt tops and have another one on the frame ready to go. The Cowboy worked on our current restoration project getting some of the flooring laid–it’s gonna look great!
YIKES–is that fall color we are seeing–if so, bring it on–of course I don’t have to spend the winter here!
Lately just as the sun is setting we’ve taken a drive up into our hay fields to look for critters–we’ve seen a few elk in our neighbor’s hay field but no chokecherry eating bears. Sunset was gorgeous the other night–smoke will do that!
This might be the best moon shot I’ve ever taken and I didn’t take it with the D5000–nope–took this one with an auto “moon” setting on my Nikon P600.
May the rain stop falling in Texas.
