Another quiet week here for us. Just waiting on a call from the counter people about when they plan on putting in our counters – we selected a new style of DuPont quartz for the top, and are waiting on shipment of the slabs. I thought only granite and natural stone were sold in slabs but it seems man made quartz is too. Oh well, we’ve been living with the kitchen for quite a while, guess a little longer will not hurt much, as long as it’s done by granddaughter E’s annual pool party scheduled for the end of August.
Smoke from the fire on Mt. Charleston has decreased considerably. There were some thunderstorms over the weekend, we got very little rain where we lived but I think there was some water falling up over the burn area which helped the firefighters. Supposedly the fire is now 60% contained, whatever that means. I don’t understand all of this effort – if the fire was started by a lightning strike why don’t they just let it burn? For thousands of years if a fire started there was no fire crew that put it out, isn’t that stuff supposed to burn off once in a while and make space for new growth?
Let’s go back to cloud pictures for a bit, this one over the park near our house. It reminds me of that painter that we used to see on PBS who talked about painting pretty little clouds.
