Another smoky day in our neck of the woods. The air quality hasn't been as bad as it was last week. We are sitting at a 9/10 at 5 a.m. this morning.
The Elephant Hill fire is now at 110 000 hectares. The wind we had on Friday made it take off and it has started coming east towards Kamloops. We are still safe though many others are evacuated. Daughter had to move her horses once again due to the fire's direction. We do not need any more wind to stir up the fire and set it off again.
Our temperatures have been in the low 30C (88-92F) and everything is growing well.
Our little peach tree is doing well and we will be eating fruit soon. The watermelons are almost ripe. With the temperatures where they are, everything is growing fast.
The upstairs of the house is now clean and I am ready to work in the basement. It isn't dirty but more dusty. I am hoping to have it done in two weeks. One early morning will be outside cleaning up the front entrance of the basement suite. Then it will be inside.
The yard still needs some tidying up. I am thinking early mornings to do a bit and then indoors. We did the big weeds at the edge of the lawn one morning and got it done before it got too warm and smoky. It all comes down to planning.
Elliott has a new toy and is thoroughly enjoying it. He goes inside it once in a while but he spends most of his time beating up the outside.
He still loves to help me knit.
And his favourite past time activity is to sleep in our chairs.
Sewing is on the back burner until the house is clean. It will happen again as I have the urge to sew.
Until the next time..........................
