And it is hot in Oregon!  For the fourth day in a row we are over 90F.  That is hot!  Humidity is running about 14% - 22% and that means one careless spark can cause a forest wildfire, a grain field to explode into flames, or burn a backyard.  That's why I am staying inside, in the cool.

Packing continues.  Seems I just get one area done and another pops up needing packing!  Oh well, the liquor store boxes are just plain great.  Strong and just the right size for most everything.  Debbie will be here Wednesday to help with the loading, unloading, and putting things right.  She will be taking home a dozen of Mom's Ball Freezer Jars for herself and a dozen for Peggy.  Those things are selling for $12 each.  Which means any leftover will be sold.  I just plan on keeping a few for me.

Yesterday, we spent our 40th Anniversary packing.  We took it slow and easy.  Sometime in the next couple of months we will go to the Coast for a weekend.  We celebrated with a Taco Salad with Chicken.  Scott was so tired he was in bed by 8:30pm and he slept the night through.

That's it for today.  I won't be posting for the next few days.  Lot's to do.


  1. Best wishes for all your packing and moving to go smoothly :-) I know the heat of which you speak. I'm due north of you and we are roasting here too though I've heard rain in the forecast by Thursday. If that is true, I welcome it!

  2. Well, I'm just checking in to see how you made out with the move and the weather. My guess is it cooled down for you and made the move more bearable. Can't wait to hear all about how you are settling in when you catch your breath.
