A Little Rain, Please!.......My Actifit Report Card: October 16 2022
Hey everybody and thanks 🙏 for stopping by! 😁😎😔🔥
Our day began with heading to church ⛪️ to lead worship for the morning. I was a little apprehensive as the smoke from the many wildfires 🔥was blowing in with an easterly wind. It was awful. Our air quality was at 165, and I thought I could see the smoke actually moving!😳 The smoke has been affecting my singing voice to the point that I was working much harder than ever to try to keep my voice clear. Excessive phlegm! A nasty business for sure! It was so bad during practice that I actually let the congregation know if I dropped out, just keep going. God is good and He saw fit to give me what I needed. Worship turned out well and the people were awesome as they sang loudly! 😎🎶⛪️
This next picture is from our son as he stands out in the elk fields near his home. The white stuff aren’t clouds ☁️ but smoke 💨 from the Bolt Creek Fire 🔥 that is still raging. The winds just whipped it up that much more.
I asked him if he was under any kind of potential evacuation notice. He said no, as it would have to jump a couple of peaks before it became a problem.
One of the guys at church ⛪️ is a wildfire fighter; they’ve been called to active duty for the next 5 weeks. They usually work 3 and get 3 days off but not right now. We so desperately need some rain 🌧️ to help with the containment of the many fires raging in our state and on up into Canada!
Here’s our son’s dog Phoenix enjoying a ride on the ferry. I know what she’s thinking……..’where are the fish?’ She loves to go fishing 🎣
With the lack of rain, everything is so dry! With the wind that came this morning, it shook trees whose roots are loose due to lack of moisture. Yes, you guessed it-one came down and took out the power for the road. Usually it rains and with the wind that accompanies those storms, we have the same results. I guess if the trees are gonna fall, then they will! 😏
Our neighbor Joan collects gnomes. When we were out shopping yesterday, I saw these and could not resist getting a pair for her!
That’s gonna be it for now. Tomorrow brings a workday on my usual off day. It’s all 5 days this week instead of my usual 3. Extra Christmas 🎅🎄money, I suppose!
Take care and enjoy your week ahead! Please continue to 🙏for 🇺🇦
