Name: Mary
The dry side of Oregon
Be yourself, you can be no one else
Yesterday morning was calm so we burned 3 big piles of limbs. The wind came up strong in the afternoon which kept me busy with the hose to keep the fire where it was supposed to be. The smaller piles were no problem, they could not have gone anywhere because of being surrounded by green grass. The biggest one was north of the garden where there is mulch and some dry leaves, etc under bushes. By the time the wind got strong it was mostly burned down to smoldering large chunks and a lot of ashes. I kept the leading edge wet and soaked it all down good before dark.

We had a big pile of dry hardwood firewood that needed to go somewhere. We loaded it on the truck and trailer and took it to elderly neighbors who depend on wood for heat. As it turned out the timing was great, they were almost out of their winter supply. We wanted to get it out of our pasture before the cows come in the next few days. They would have had a wonderful time rubbing and scattering it then pooping on it. Same with the burn pile.

Today's weather forecast looks like a repeat of yesterday, high of 54, and tonight's low prediction is 23.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
