Thanks for the update on wildfire smoke. I was wondering.

Can't be over soon enough, Plinius, but at least its better now.

Comment by Plinius on September 7, 2018 at 1:46pm

I'm glad to hear that Patricia!

Comment by Patricia on September 7, 2018 at 12:55pm

Smoke has been much better, Joan, but we still have some smelly days. Evacuation alerts are still up in many places yet, & some fires are by no means totally under control. Yes, the days are shorter & cooler, which helps a lot. Some areas are seeing frost which is also a plus. At least now I can scooter without the mask.

Sounds like a smart girl.

We had house guests last week, a yellow tabby cat named "Clyde!," my granddaughter. and her daughter stayed with us because they had sewer backup problems and the stench was described by them as "putrid!"

I was in my glory, with a little girl and a cat to play with! Brooklyn, four-years-old, develops a fine vocabulary. She chatters all day. I taught her "coral," "bivalved clams," "gastropod" "horseshoe-crab," and "ammonite" as we dusted my shell collection. She taught her Mom and Dad these shells and their names correctly when they came home.  

Clyde was well-behaved while here, although timid.

Patricia, how is the smoke problem? Did that last rain provide enough moisture to quell some of the fires?

Our temperatures returned to a lovely 80°F and even 60°F as the new highs. Wonderful to work and play outside. The smoke left us, hopefully from dousing fires. 

All I want to do is sleep; I seldom wake up before noon, these days, and night falls earlier each day. I get my few household and garden chores done, get dinner and do the cleanup and it is time for bed. It was only a few years ago that I woke up with the sunrise and worked hard all day on some project or another.

District 8 Fire had few fire calls this summer; they had more health-related calls. Laura and Michelle have their licenses now and respond to those calls for emergency care.

I see no reason why masks can't be used if no customers are around, & I see no point in leaving the doors open during smoke season. 

Comment by Grinning Cat on September 6, 2018 at 9:55pm

As long as the air quality in B.C. stays dangerous, and masks help, I hope they become the new normal for "showing your face to customers" if it must be done in the outside air!

On a happier note, while looking for something else I found these at the blog of the Dutch sisters Corry and Heleen:

Good night and pleasant dreams!
