Hello Fall!

Yesterday I wrote a huge post, pressed save and who knows where it went because it did not show up on my blog!!!

Been having some much needed rain and snow in the higher elevations!

This photo was posted on FB yesterday morning- about 40min to our east in the mountains!

The precipitation and much colder temperatures have aided in getting a handle on the wild fires! We have had over a million acres burn this summer.

Fall has officially arrived.

The trees are starting to change their colours

I spent a week out in Seattle when the air was do bad from the smoke! It was making me sick. Curtis put me on the train in Shelby and I the next morning Cait picked me up in Seattle.

This little minion started preschool while I was away! He told me today, it is awesome! He gets to ride a bus which makes his day!

Mo scrapbook layouts! But I have been making cards

Linking up to the Simon Says Stamps Wed. Challenge where you need to pop it up!!

September has Arrived!

September 1 has blown in the door!

The big grandkids headed back to school. One in 5th grade and the other in 4th.
The photo Kirsten sent me their first morning back!

Cooper starts preschool this next week!!! He has his "Cars3" backpack and lunchbox all ready to go! Time is flying much too quickly!

Wildfires have again dominated our news! Glacier National Park lost an iconic historical building last night due to wildfire! The Sperry Chalet lodge!

I stole these pictures off the internet to share!

Our state has been burning up for weeks and no one seems to care! The governor finally declared it a state of emergency! I have people I know that have summer cabins in areas near these fires!

And the smoke is bothering me personally! Smoke has been a bug irritant for me for a long time. Just a camp fire sends my allergies over the top! I either wake up with a headache or have one by noon. Curtis is sending me out to the coast to visit Caitlin next week, where the air is clear.

So I have been hibernating in my basement sewing, escaping the smoke! Thank goodness for air conditioning! We need rain desperately and there seems to be none in our forecast.
