Smoky Days Are Here Again

Well, I was a little optimistic on the 3rd! The 3rd and 4th of July were beautiful! No smoke to speak of we sat on our deck most of the 4th! When we woke up on the 5th, this is what we saw. We have now had almost 3 straight weeks of smoke! It's to the point now that it's making me sick. The call it smoke intolerance or something like that. I was feeling like I had a really bad flu bug. I don't have any energy. It's also been hovering about 106 degrees for the past week, so the heat isn't helping, me or the fires! My only other complaint is that the kids are stuck inside! They really haven't been outside to play for 3 weeks! :( They are more than a little stir-crazy. This picture was taken at about 7 in the morning. That little red ball is what we call the sun! At least that's all we see of the sun lately! Okay! Enough feeling sorry for myself! The next picture will be a little more fun!

I don't envy you breathing all that smoke and having it be so HOT! I think we were lucky it was not very hot while we were in CA. Our weather here is pretty nice, too. I think this is the first year that we have driven home from CA and there wasn't a fire somewhere on I-15 that threatened to make us take a detour. I was quite shocked. Hope you guys are doing oksy. We're still wondering when you are going to come visit us....

p.s. I'm waiting for another card.....OH....I love your background, too.
