Hi there! How was your day today? I hope you were able to get some creating done! I've been busy doing nothing but waiting. Well, I did make a potato salad to go with our BLT's tonight. We still have our evacuee company which is helping me stay busy. We're just constantly looking for updates on the fire! We also rounded up the same sheep we moved about 10 days ago...not easy and a bunch of chickens. They are now being evacuated to the coast! What an adventure! My family and I are all safe. We're still on a warning of evacuation but not an order yet. The winds have been in our favor and we actually could see the sky and sun today. It was wonderful and heartbreaking at the same time...because the fire is moving towards our neighboring communities. It's about five miles away from us now. We are still praying for rain....lots of rain! The winds are predicted to change on Friday, making it come our direction faster. Please pray for rain, the firefighters and all those involved in getting the fires out...not just ours, but all those that are burning throughout the Western United States!
Here's a fun tutorial using one of my favorite designer papers!
