Our life this week on paper

My family came over to my house when they were evacuated because of the wildfires.  As they waited for word on if they still had a house or not,  we kept busy...We went to the barn and ran in the grass and  cooked and ate and then did some drawing before bedtime....I asked the girls to draw pictures of how they felt about things...
The baby made this illustration.....She is 3... 

Emma did this one...

I assured them all would be fine and it was...They were able to go home the next day...House still standing..

Bob pushed his way out of the fenced yard this week while I was at work...Mickey came home to this note on our door.  

He got a talking to...


ps..I intend on having a relaxing peacful and simple weekend..wish me luck.

Oklahoma firestorm 2011

Oklahoma has been in a state of emergency lately.  Things have been happening all over the world it seems.  One disaster after another.

On Friday, Oklahomas drought and high winds,  combined with low humidity, created perfect conditions for an extreme fire danger...And sure enough, it happened.

Fire broke out in the town of Harrah.  This is where my son and grandones live.
This is their home.  It was this close.

The swing set was saved..

The detached one car garage was was a total loss.

That fire burned their garage and continued across the yard and just skimmed the back corner of the house.  

Others on their street and throughout the community of Harrah were not as fortunate.

The fire also knocked on the front door of my sons house.  Firefighters kept the blaze back, as you can see where the firetrucks drove through the front yard.

This burned tree remains.  My son says he will try to save it.  It also survived a terrible ice storm a few years ago..

This little sign of spring just kept on keeping on through the ordeal....
Giving us all cause to pause and give thanks.

I get no respect around here

Seems the whole crew on Peebly was quite upset about Bob and Marley going to the groomers last week.  I did not realize there would be so much jealousy about it..

The cat wouldnt look at me..

Hey Alice!
She kept turning away. 

The goats kept staring and staring at Bobs new doo.. 
Geez, would you make them leave me alone?!

Hey Lady!  Why does he get to go and get his hair done?  What about us?  What are we, chopped liver or something?  Look how cute we are.  We want new doos too!!! 

Yeah, take this!!!
Goodness, thats rude!!

Do you forgive me now?

Its hard pleasing everyone..
