This is a rare weather prediction for the Sierras. Where we are in the foothills there is lots of rain BUT THERE WILL BE WINDS. High winds. Since we’re on the eastern side of the Sacramento Valley that is where the high wind warning is.
I’m not sure how I feel about this. In the past, we have booked into the Holiday Inn in Auburn and just left for the night. I’m not sure I want to do that this time unless it dire. The threat being 100-foot Ponderosa pines. But we have in recent years gotten thru without trees falling. And we have removed some. I’d say we still need to take down 6 more trees that are on the South side of the house and then in the back by the barn there is one of the biggest trees we have( probably 4 feet diameter at the bottom) that is leaning toward the barn but not the house. These winds have generally always come from the SSW so that’s where there are about 6 left. Some lean away and one leans towards. Of course, these trees have been around for at least 50 years maybe 100, but still, a gust of 60mph can do some damage. So I’m undecided. My anxiety probably will be the deciding factor. So if by 5 tonight or so if it’s just too much we can go. My daughter doesn’t want to go since her cat Ollie is not well and almost died yesterday. She has taken a floating holiday today. and she’ll probably need tomorrow too.
B has had a few days off from appts. How nice to just relax. Tomorrow he has labs and then if he needs an infusion it would be Friday.
I might go to the gym. I haven’t decided as my back is still bothering me from lifting something too heavy last week. I do have degenerative disc in some areas so it could be that. I’ll wait a week and see how it is. If it’s still bothering me I’ll ask for an x-ray.
I cleaned out the kitchen pantry this week and reorganized. I’m following along with ‘the minimalist kitchen’ by Faux Martha. Her blog is quite beautiful and her sponsor is OXO. So she has a huge following. I like her ideas and she seems very down to earth and not preachy. I really despise preachy. If you’re interested go to her website TheFauxmartha.com or YouTube put in Minimalist Kitchen. minimalist kitchen
