First the IF stuff: My lovely sister-in-law sent me an awesome care package with lots of band-aids for my injections (Winnie the Pooh and Hearts & Stars), a bouncy ball to throw at people who say stupid things (her words), a cool bag for my stuff, cotton pads, really tasty cookies (seriously go get some Milano melts!), Halls for my sore throat from the smoke, and several other things, but this captions is too long :)
All my meds and needles. Its far more depressing to see it all spread out at once. (For some reason the pic would not flip)
Now on to the fur kids: Cali & Branigan. This was one of the first times that she let him get close.
Lola hiding among the shoes.
Branigan with his huge puppy smile.
Branigan with his favorite toy Kiff. Branigan is named for Zapp Branigan from Futurama so his little green friend had to be Kiff.
Last but not least, some fire pics. The fire made the clouds beautiful colors. This was taken from the valley below our town on day 4 or 5 of the fire.
This is one of the views once we were allowed back in time.
Gotta love the fires in the background of the Welcome Home sign!
One of the AWESOME choppers that has been fighting this fire.
This is technically a volcano, just a dormant one. It totally looks like one!
There are 18 choppers working to fight the fire. It is currently 50% contained so they are still working on it!
Another cool view. It was crazy to come home and be able to see the fire. It was literally on all parts of the mountains!
The smoke sucks, but it does some cool things for the sunsets.
Well that is all for now. I'll try to put pictures in at the times that they make sense instead of doing them all at once from now on.
