|Our first bounty...We had a total of 3 apricots..and 3 yellow|
tomatoes..all are yummy!
|The fire over the mountain!|
I went first to Smith's to get some more groceries since we knew Russell and family are coming to visit. Of course what I didn't realize is that some of the stuff I picked up at Smith's I had also ordered from Walmart. Oh well, other than a hefty bill nothing will go bad.
Left there and headed to Walmart pick up area and the girl came out in her mask pushing the groceries. They instructions say open the trunk area and stay in your car. She came to the window, and of course I had to have her repeat everything she was saying as everything she was saying was garbled. Finally got they substituted the water I ordered so we ended up with 48 bottles instead of 64. I get that they were out but I ordered 64 because that's what i wanted. Oh well, she left I closed the hatch and time to go home. I'm not crazy about the pick up but I might do it again, just not sure at this point.
I got home and got some lunch going. The rest of the day flew by as they all seem to do. In the mail I got the sweetest flag that Zoey, Paul and Lisa's daughter was selling to fund her way to cheer camp. Lisa went to school with our sons way back when. Love it!!
|Our front door entrance ...|
We were sitting outside enjoying Happy Hour and saw out back there was a fire starting up over the mountain. We found out it's up near Gardnerville, again.
|More of the fire.. :(|
|Happy Hour in Yerington!|
|Watching it build..:(|
Tuesday morning we awoke to a smoke filled valley here. No way could you see the mountains and the smell of smoke was thick. I went to the Mansion and pulled the bedding so it'll be fresh when company comes. I love hanging out sheets but they would have been smoke smelling once they were dry!
|Waking up yesterday morning...|
|No mountain to see!|
Ken and I kept busy going through some pictures, cleaning etc. We found some more things in the shed to hang up outside. Finally, after 7 years they'll get hung haha. I ran to the post office to get a package in the mail for Jacob and then by Raley's quickly.
We had lunch and later in the afternoon I was making some potato salad for Ken and broccoli salad for me Ken took the Dodge for a drive to see if he could find some new trails. He came back and said that it was getting late, or if I was done we could take a drive in the Can AM. I'm done! Let's go!
|The sun a beautiful red|
|Smoke filled skies..|
|We went through a tunnel!|
|This was quite a hill!|
|On our way to the craggy mountains|
Had a wonderful 20 mile drive to areas I would never thought we could go. Pretty cool! Russell had texted and said they would be coming Thursday instead of Friday! Yay! They are stopping at The Beacon, for Rum Runners on the way (South Lake Tahoe)..so late afternoon or early evening. 😍
|Closest we've ever been to these mountains..|
|Love these mountains..|
|Garbage even in the mountains..|
|Those mountains straight out are where we were..the craggy ones!|
Sat outside and enjoyed happy hour and Ken barbecued some awesome chicken thighs and a chicken breast for me. Nice that the evenings cool off and we can enjoy being outside. All day it looked like we were under cloudy skies and then the sun would come out. Luckily there wasn't too much wind for the fire fighters.
This morning (Wednesday) we awoke to cool temps and fairly clear skies here. The Numbers fire is holding at 18,000 acres burned. 1 home and 20 outbuildings gone. No cause yet, except it was a beautiful day and no lightning or thunder..hmmm.
|We got our some of our stuff up today..💙|
Time to get a move on, we've got company coming TOMORROW!!...💙💙😊
Just a reminder...
Have a great day!
