Fire all around......

I have never been scared of fire. I have never had an evacuation plan. I am now scared and now need to formulate a plan. Have you heard about the Lake Tahoe fire? It was being contained and today about 3, it jumped the lines and is spreading. It's much too far to burn all the way here (I hope), but we have friends that lost a house, and we have friends that work up there. My husband is the manager of a grocery store, and one of the stores up there is being evacuated. This fire is hitting too close to home for me.

** Edited to add..... From my house to the fire it is 37 miles. The fire will never reach here. I will NOT think about the 35 mile winds that are to come tomorrow, and I will not think about the fact that the winds are going to blow in my direction.

On the other side of us there is another fire. This one is small and will probably will be put out soon, but the thought of fire scares me. We live IN the forest. Right smack dab in the middle of it. If there was a fire, the houses would go up in flames in a minute. I really need to put some things together in case that ever happens.

I had my post planned out to show you this beautiful sock yarn that Susie dyed for me. It's beautiful and it really deserves it's own post. So I will leave you with a picture of 2 boys making "Bug Soup". :-)

There will be bath's tonight!
