Smoke, Wind, And Dinner

Once again when we got up this morning we were engulfed in nasty, thick smoke.

Michael worked on the diesel pickup again today and after lunch took the big backhoe down the East Boulder to dig some difficult post holes for a friend.  Remember this spring how we were complaining so bitterly about all the rain we were getting.  Well, the faucet was turned off about mid-July and it is very, very dry around here.  All the moisture compacted the ground and then the heat baked it making it hard as a rock for digging.

I got a quilt loaded onto the quilting frame—I love listening to my iPod and audiobooks while working in the studio.  I am currently listening to The Help, I read it a couple years ago when it first came out and loved the book, now that I am listening to someone read the book to me I am hearing parts I missed and once again, I can’t put the book down!

Lonn and LoraLee came for dinner tonight and we had a great evening.  I made ribs, oven fried potatoes and spinach salad.  And, I was bad—I made homemade brownies.  A delicious meal and a good time with family.

An early morning tomorrow, very early! 



  1. This summer has certainly been one of extremes.

  2. Same kind of weather here this summer, but all in all it has been a great summer.....once the June monsoon moved on!

  3. Janna, be careful if you listen with earphones. I have done that for a long time and am convinced that that has contributed to my hearing loss. It started in July and so far has not gotten better. I have a hard time hearing the TV now. Very very annoying. I am now using my computer speakers to listen to my books. Just thought I'd let you know.

  4. Hope that smoke clears away soon. It's pretty bone dry around here too, we could use a real heavy monsoon.
