Lots of smoke here!
Its been here for 5 days and 5 nights already and it doesn’t look like its planning on leaving anytime soon.
I mean LOTS of smoke!
Mom had a blog friend tell her this smoke is from all the horrible, terrible, scary, nasty wildfires in Idaho.
If the smoke is bad HERE—in the western part of Colorado…it must be horrible there.
Fuzzy and I really feel bad for all the animals and people and plants that are being damaged by those fires. We know what fire is like and we know how SCARY it is!!!!
Yesterday we all went to town. We followed Blade as he rode his bike to town, first time to town on his new bike, by himself. He did really well!
Since Blade is spending this week’s mornings with us (and his parents said he could) he really, really, wanted to ride the 8 miles to and from town. We all got to go because, well, it’s a long ways and he is still a young boy, and there are lots of huge trucks and really fast cars on that highway.
He said it was a long ways.
The going down was fun, the coming back w.o.r.k.!!!
(Dad put the bike in the back of the truck with us and hauled him UP the hill, then took the bike out and started him on the way again.)
Mom said—“Yep, that’s how it works, one way fun the other way work.”
That evening Fuzz and I went with Mom to fork ends back on the cut alfalfa and help Dad change water.
They only left me twice. The second time I really was hiding so they would think I wasn’t close by and I zipped up by Mom and Fuzzy and then passed them and got to the irrigation place FIRST!!!
HAHAHAHAH! I fooled them!!!
This is the last irrigation of the pinto beans…see how ripe they are getting. Next week or the following week Dad will start the harvesting process—-there a MANY steps to the harvesting of pinto beans!
I LOVE EACH STEP! I LOVE HELPING ALL THE TIME!!
We saw a frog …Mom said this was a first. We see lots of toads, but this is a cool little frog (he had a buddy, but I lost track of him) was the first for our fields.
Smoke makes for some pretty amazing sunsets, but Fuzzy and I agreed…no smoke or fire would be best.
I was going to tell you about Mom’s bees, but Mom said I’ve been on here long enough so I have to go now.
