Picking up granddaughter from school than going to the meat market for some bacon. Hubby is going to cook bacon and sausage on the outdoor griddle while I make fried potatoes and onions inside.

Packing some bags and getting cat crates out to be ready when ( or if, hopefully ) the evacuation order comes, we are only 2 miles from evacuation orders, luckily separated by a reservoir, so if lucky we may not have to leave.

Cameron peak fire for those wondering.

Baking muffins to take in to the bake sale. This is one of my short shifts, and truck will be in, so I won’t have time to make them fresh in the morning. This batch will be cinnamon strusel, I have the rest of the plain batch ready for blueberries, for tomorrow which is my other short shift.

That's the idea,

Based on the community meeting last night we should be good for another couple of days, but after that it really depends on how much wind we are getting.

Keep in touch, if you disappear we will be concerned.

Nah, I won't disappear. As long as I'm alive :)

Plus GPF is like the only thing that makes me not 100% bored out of my mind during the school day.
Lol, and if you need help understanding homework, you’ve got a few friends that might be able to help. Just don’t ask me about the math, that new way they teach it is lost on me.

So I ordered aquarium plants off of Dustin’s FishTanks, I should be getting plants they chose based on my needs, lighting, etc. But... Ups has the box just one town away, for the past two days. Temps are dropping into low 40s high 30s tonight. I reviewed their shipping and return policy. If the shipper screws up, they’ll ship me new plants for free. If I want a return it’s 110% refund. They truly stand by their plants. His YouTube Chanel is a bit loud from what I’ve seen, I prefer the calmer approach instead of trying to hype folks up by being super energetic in a video. Maybe he is that way most of the time, I prefer Rachel O’Learys calm attitude. But he knows his plants, and straight up says there is a 100% chance that they may come with snails as they are grown in green houses, and how to treat the plants to avoid them getting in the tank. I already have snails, not bothered in the least, but ups has me upset sitting on my plants for so long. I’m tempted to call them and just go to the ups place to open the box there and bring them home if they are still alive. I’ll update folks here, once I know if they are ok or not.

Good luck with your plants!

And it’s a day off of school today! Even better for me :)

( cause there has been a lot of controversy on Columbus Day as a holiday, but the teachers still neeeded the extra work day, so they just shifted it 4 days late )

So not happy with ups. So argue streets around here have a numaric “ name” which google maps uses, and a letter “name”, a-z, with a few having actual names like Union. Mine is O st, or some 4 digit number, and when I filled in the order form on the sellers website, it changed it to the google choice 4 digit number for street name, and I didn’t catch it. So UPS can’t find me... despite a quick google map search would solve it. So called the sender, talked with the lady running the office, got that fixed, so now I can expect them Monday as that’s when they deliver to boonies next.

Last roommate we had ordered packages all the time, they could find the 4 digit street number name just fine. Grrr.

Technically it isn't being called that, really just the end of the quarter for us, so the teacher sneeded and extra day for grading I think.

but hopefully your son will get off someday soon :)

it is nice to have a 3 day weekend!
