Rain, Glorious Rain
There have been a lot of opportunities to donate to the wildfire efforts. In addition to donating cash to the Red Cross the local Rotary were trying to collect 3000 used clean sheets in good condition to be sent to the evacuation centers and to be used for the firefighters/police who have been helping fight the fires. I had just bought a new sheet set the day before so cleaned out the cupboards and found some that I could donate. I also donated some grocery store points from an island grocery chain as they are donating cash to evacuees.
We have been super busy this week with work, something that always happens when hubby gets home from a road trip. Next Friday we are only working a half-day as I booked a fishing charter for Mom, hubby and I for 5 hours. To go deep sea fishing is a bucket list item and something I've never done (only freshwater). We have been eating out of the freezer trying to make room for *hopefully* the numerous fish we bring home. The charter costs $450, not cheap but was Mom's Mother's day gift, Hubby's Birthday and Fathers day gift and my Birthday gift. We are going for experiences, not things this year. I've been watching the charter company's facebook page and it seems they have been bringing in many large salmon and ling cod so things are looking good. Either way, we get out on the ocean where we love it and I will be taking lots of photos to document the trip.
Not much else happening here, I just was so excited to see rain I had to share the news!
