First an apology to my 7yo Alea. I mistakenly said on the last post that she did not practice the piano. I was wrong. She does practice in a drive by style. She will walk by the piano and shoot out her rendition of "Old MacDonald has a Song" then be on her way. Last night the girls organized a piano recital. There were invitations and posters decorating the refrigerator and chairs put out for the audience. Even an intermission. My 11yo Nicole held a flashlight as a spotlight on the performance. One DD organized and one DD performed. I can see how this is going to play out.
We had a Sunday afternoon trip to Pine Crest Lake. There were a lot of people, but I knew there would be. We had to circle the parking areas 3 times to find a parking spot before we found a guy loading up to leave. I blocked traffic for a while but hey, where were they going to go anyway? DS and I swam a few laps to the buoys and back the water was great and refreshing!I thought this was a cool tree. Probably sick or something standing all by its self.
There was a Craft Faire in Twain Harte this weekend. We had to go and see what was there, and who was there. My kids can't believe how many people I know. But really, our community is quite small. We joke about not running out for a quick trip in your PJs because you will run into 3 or 4 people you know.
I saw Betsy and Doreen from our Guild selling raffle tickets for the opportunity quilt.
A quick game of miniature golf and we were on our way.
I have those Geese arranged in a way I like them. Now all I need is a chance to sew them together.
We're on fire. There is a fire burning in the Stanislaus National Forest about 15 miles from our community. Yesterday is was estimated 650 acres were burned and the fire is expected to last about a week. There is a lot of smoke in the air and lots of people with respiratory disorders. But, I did get a shot of the sun rising through the smoke. Very dramatic and very orange.
