Good Morning........I finally found some time to post something on the blog! The weekend (once again) went by in a blur....running errands....yard work....lots of cooking! I made 12 more jars of apricot-pineapple jam.....I also made a 23 lb. turkey with all the trimmings for Dad's birthday... dinner. Lots of left-overs for this week...yum!
The smoke from the Lake Tahoe wild fire was so BAD yesterday....I had a horrible headache from it.... The fire called the "Angora Fire" started on Sunday afternoon.... quickly destroyed a total of 240 homes..the winds were so bad, the conditions so dry...plus lots of dead trees which created lots of fuel for the raging out of control blaze...people barely had time to get out...I feel so sorry for all the people who lost everything in the fire. Lake Tahoe is one of the most beautiful places on earth...it is a HUGE recreational area... since living only an hour away, Andy and I have spent a great deal of time there...my youngest sister lived there for many many years...it makes my heart sick to think of the devastation this wildfire has caused...as of this morning they are saying it is 40% contained. They still don't know how it started...but believe that it was "sparked" by humans.......Will people EVER..EVER...LEARN ???!!!!!
