Fired

Well if I didn't know better I can sooo see where some of y'all, my dearest internets, would think I had been fired from my own blog...

But surprise I have not been nor were we in the recent wild fires. The biggest one in Magnolia was about 20 miles away. We had some friends that were evacuated and praise God their home was spared. We did a few grass fires near by that were brought under control before leaping onto the many (hundreds) of dead trees around here. It is very sad to see so many of our woods dying. If the wind blows too hard huge limbs fall as if they were leaves in autumn. I suspect that the first ice storm / freeze (if we get one) will bring down lots of the barely surviving limbs.

I have been doing stuff that has me away from the computer often. New leisure (lol) classes at the college. I spent this past weekend in Oklahoma with a friend. We took a Healing Touch International class. OMG - I mean really OMG!!! was it ever wonderful. But the real reason I brought it up was so many of their rivers, yes rivers, were dry and had grass growing in them. ~CRAZY~

And now back to our Dryness: I know y'all have been sending prayers of rain and I personally thank you super very much, we had a shower yesterday. Please continue the prayers and please add Oklahoma to the rain request.

love y'all my dear internets

Hi Paige! I'm glad to hear you are safe from the fires there. I'm still praying for rain for you all. The Healing class looks pretty neat. Looks like something everyone needs. I hope you have a good week ahead.

I would pray for rain for you but every time I do that we end up getting tropical storms.

Good thing you weren't too fired up!
Glad you finally got a little rain. maybe autumn will be easier on all those crispy dry places-
We've tons of new firewood for the woodstoves around here lately too- most of it hard wood Maple n Oak. If I had a buzz saw I'd be going to town making piles to season, n maybe made into furniture. n sculpture.

Truth be told, my friend, I have been wondering -and worrying too -about where you live and if you were possibly within range of those fires! A cousin of mine lives in a suburb of Austin and said she is about 15 miles from one of the fires. Thankfully, she was back east over the past weekend and I had not one, but two opportunities to visit a bit with her. Funny thing though, when they left Austin Thursday a.m., it was sunny, dry and hot -104 and when they landed in Pittsburgh, it was in the 50s and raining! First time she'd seen rain in a couple of months! And of course, don't ya just know it too but this past weekend autumn decided to arrive here and it was a very, VERY cool, no -Chilly -nope, COLD weekend where even I was freezing and I am accustomed to this kind of weather. Well sort of. Well, in my younger years I was! Just glad to see you're still kicking away down there and nice to hear that you all even had a shower (rain kind, that is) too! Just so you don't get belted with rain such as hit PA about two-three weeks ago though! Peace!

Wow, I wish I could send some of our rain your way, we've got a tremendous excess. Yuck. Although if we were in a drought I'd be saying, yay! lol.

Your healing class sounds ammmmmmmmaaaazing!

It's NICE to be away from the computer. I'll be doing that next week, camping.

Glad you are safe and sound.

Good thing is you can hire and fire yourself at will from blogging!

I hope you are okay down there! A month is forever and an age to not post (not for me, but I'm a slacker lately, meh.)

Be safe.
