Goals for 2010

I began my quest last year (2009) to go through my stash bins and use up fabric, get rid of things that I no longer use in my business like sweatshirts. I donated the sweatshirts, denim shirts, etc. to the Union Rescue Mission. I figured that it was better to help to keep others warm during the cold months than to stay tucked away in my bins. I am still on a mission this year to go through things. It will take a long time as now I have my mil's things that my sil didn't want to keep.

Some day, I will have my mother's things as well. We were a storage place for my dh's cousin, who was homeless at the time (5 years ago), but had a storage unit that he was paying on but couldn't afford. My dh's cousin finally is in a place and picked up his belongings.

Today, my youngest son turned 21. I now have a household filled with adults. When I have the chance, I want to scan photos of my son as he grew up over the years.

Station Fire

Well, the rain awoke me up this morning at 3:30 am. The newscaster said that we would have a break from the rain until the afternoon. So much for the break. We are fortunate though that we are not directly affected because we are not too close to the burn areas. It has been raining here since Sunday, and it is expected to continue raining until later this week. Now, I like the rain. It can be so calming, but I don't like driving in it. It seems that when it rains that people forget how to drive or maybe because it is so hard to see where you are going. Sometimes, though it feels like our house sits under a waterfall. It is as if someone has a giant bucket and is pouring the water on top of us.

I thought that I would share some of the pictures taken from the top of our street of the station fire that was the mass fire that burned 160,577 acres. The people who live near the fire damaged areas are the ones who are now experiencing mud slides and floods.
