The Sisters Tea

My sister suggested getting together for tea every 2 months.  We certainly have not gotten together very much in the past few years and what a great idea for a lot of fun.

We have our date for our first tea, October 10 at her house.   That was a minor miracle just how easy it was to get a date.  If we couldn't have gotten the 10th, the next possible time would have been as far out as January 2016.

We are now in the process of deciding what will be on the menu.

Drought and Fires

We in California are so sick and tired of this stupid drought.  Everything is drying up or has already died.  My poor yards....

And then there is the danger of fire.

One of our sons moved up to the Middletown area in June  They were up there a couple weeks and there was a big fire that got as close as about a mile away.  Then, a second fire, the Jerusalem fire came a bit closer.  Then, the Valley fire, the third largest most damaging fire of California history came so close they didn't know if they still had a house for almost a week.  His car was in the shop and burned to a molten mass and his brother-in-law lost his beautiful house they had hand built.

Now that is over and though we are all hoping for a really nice wet winter, we are concerned for those in burned out areas for flooding, hills being washed down, etc.  Everyone is starting to really prepare for winter.
