What a weekend....shopping, eating, fire, movie......what's not to like, right? Well, I liked everything but the fire.
We decided to go to Bend to do a little shopping on Saturday morning. While we were there, we got a call from our Son asking us about the fire in Culver. WHAT??? He said it was west of where we live....and didn't think it was going to make it to the town. So, we finished up our errands, grabbed a wrap at Togo's (my new favorite fast food place) and then headed for home. I kept checking KTVZ for updates and it wasn't close to where we lived and they had a lot of help from surrounding communities, so we felt better.
As we approached our little town, we could see the helicopter dumping water on the fire.
Once again, just plain stupidity and no common sense played a part in yet another fire in our area. This one is 'under investigation' but it's being blamed on someone who wrongly disposed of their hot charcoal while it was windy....AND there is also a ban on campground fires. HELLLLOOOO???? grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. As a result...at least 2-3 homes were lost.
On a lighter note, while I was in town, I bought a few new things to wear after getting rid of almost all of my larger clothes. Doing the Happy Dance!!
Sunday, we went and saw the movie War Room. It was another good movie put out by the Kendrick brothers. I really enjoyed it!!!
The theater was nearly packed and there was a lot of laughter in certain parts. Good movie but it won't appeal to everyone....not any gore, sex or foul language. THANKFULLY!!!
Then, we came home and ate KFC and played Pinochle with our Granddaughter and her boyfriend and then had some Marionberry pie to celebrate DH's birthday (which isn't until Tuesday).
Very full weekend!!! And, the weather has gotten a tad cooler and best of all....the skies have cleared up. After living with a smoky haze for over two weeks, I am so happy to see my 'Mountain' again and blue skies!!!
Didn't get any stamping done over the weekend and the few things I have made, I can't show just yet as they are for an upcoming stamping get together over in Salem and also for my Card Buffet. But, I'll share soon!!!
Have a fantastic day!!!
