Summertime continues with.....

...a couple days of work with Tuesday being the busiest so far, my friends. Oh so happy to have time to relax and eat at Panera Bread.  Free drink tonight reward that went with  Creamy chicken and rice soup, Chicken almond salad sandwich and potato chips, a mixed berry scone, in the bag and hibiscus tea with a bit of unsweetened regular tea. Refilled tea before I went home. Snitched a few bites from the scone. Eating more of it now that I have it home! Let Megan have some too....."uhoo...."she says, "a scone unattended in the kitchen..." Good thing she left me a bit to eat! 

 Here's the sky once I got home. See all the pink....near sunset and there is smoke in the air from the fires in Redding, CA and further south in Oregon. I can smell the smoke in the air. So sad to have more fires again this year. Dufur fire, I wrote about last time, is over and so is the fire near The Dalles. Sigh! But fire fighters being sent various places to help out. Even the Army National Guard are being trained to help out as well.

Lord have mercy on us in the heat and drought. I came home, brought a few things in. Went back outside and watered the potted plants and in-ground plants..... More clean water in the bird bath as the birds are loving it! Our weather is giving us hot temps next couple days...97 and then down to coolness....maybe back into the 90s again next week?! What....live through it as we always do. 

Our son and wife, Justin and Erin, were notified last week that they had 60 days to find another place to live.  They live in a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom duplex. Hopefully what they found today will work out for them! A bit closer to us....but close to friends as well. 
Beth had her last chemo today! So happy that part's over. Now for rest and strength to help her in the coming days and years and hopefully cancer will go.away!!!! 

I'll be back soon with the weekend of fun with a few cute photos! Busy but good times. 
Have a good week! I'll be back!!!

Such a shame about the fires, my heart goes out to all those who have been affected. Hope all is well with you and your family.

Your Panera meal looks delicious. We have extremely unhealthy air quality again today. Temperatures over 100 today and a 107 predicted for tomorrow. Breaking all records and fires all around us. I detest winter but I almost think it’s better than this. Take care my friend. Blessings, Betsy

That is my favorite soup at Panera, I love it. And now I want a bowl right this second. Stay cool my friend.
