In the Navy in 1950 my “buddies” told me to drink it or skip the coffee break.Naive, I believed them but needed four teaspoons of sugar to make it drinkable.Several months ago read of cold-brew in…Continue

I would be worrying, too, Patricia. If you were to evacuate, where would you go? Is there an evacuation plan for this season as there was last year? As I remember, that experience was made more tolerable because of the kindness of your hosts.

The neighbours are helping us out in many cases, & I have a housekeeper twice a month.

Rick's recovery has gone very well, so he's nearly back to his usual self. He's leaving Tuesday for Kelowna to have his 6 week checkup, right into another fire & smoke area.

Our daughter is leaving Kelowna on Tuesday as well to go to Calgary to be there for the birth of her first grandchild.......& its another smoky area, so I'll have both to worry about. Rick is flying, but Aurora is driving.

Patricia, with your need for surgery and Rick just getting through one, do you have someone who can help you?

Since smoke is everywhere, we'd have no place to go anywhere nearby. I am however thinking Iceland!!!! Hahahaha.

We have fires getting closer, so its time to get the cat carriers, & suitcases organized.

But no fire close to you? Must be very bad on your system - and how can you escape smoke?

Comment by Patricia on August 12, 2018 at 2:18pm

We can't see our surrounding forestry any much smoke.

Chris, your horrific weather has made the U.S. news. Must be bad.

Patricia, we're getting lovely sunsets (Ind.) from your smoky fires. Sorry you have to stay indoors.

Joan, I can just see you outdoors puttering around in the open spaces surrounded by trees. "Sweet life" indeed!

Sounds great Joan. Too smoky to be outside today.

Whole grains toast dunked in coffee! A splendid way to start my day. The first task is to refill the water tank in the greenhouse, gather ripe vegetables, replenish the bird feeders. Flocks of turkeys come to the feeding station daily now. They leave their lovely poop on the dry, sandy soil, giving promise of some fertile ground for planting. Then, I will have to get out the fencing. 

Life is sweet in the forest.

Agreed, Randy. All that sugar just masks the fruit flavour.
