Hello Monday

Hello Monday. Here is to hoping this week is better than last. It has been a hard week here in Colorado. This is the view of the High Park Fire from my front door. The fire has been burning for 3 weeks now. MiniB has had some major asthmatic symptoms. This smoke plume actually looks pretty not so bad in this picture.

Hello ugly sky. Rain, please come and help us in Colorado. On Saturday a major fire broke out in Estes Park, just 1.5 miles from our cabin. They gave an evacuation order to guests staying in our cabin so they decided to forgo their vacation at our cabin. The Estes Park fire consumed 21 homes. We spent much of Saturday on pins and needles just waiting on word about what direction the fire was headed. Our cabin is safe. Thankfully though many lost their homes, no lives were lost.

Hello power wash! I love power washing our house. Or should I say I love when Brian power washes our house.

Hello power washed garage! Over the winter our cars drag in a lot of junk that they put on the roads for the snow. I'm always so glad when we can wash it out and stare at it for a minute because it won't last very long.

The temperature outside on Saturday was 102. After the stress of waiting to see whether our cabin was in the line of the fire, we decided to go out for some ice cream. Brian loves himself a banana split!
