Some of them hit pretty close to my hometown of Cushing. My Facebook was blowing up with people talking about the fires and how close they were getting to town. Some friends and family members were told to evacuate. As far as I know, everyone is ok, but it was pretty heartbreaking and scary.
Please keep the firefighters who I am sure are exhausted in your prayers. Also, please for the people who weren’t so lucky to have a home to come back to. Oh! Prayers for desperate needed rain and cooler temperatures would also be very much appreciated!
113 degrees is too hot!! Ugh… is it Fall yet? Speaking of hot, I went shopping this weekend for the tax-free weekend and even though it’s hotter than-all-get-out outside, somehow looking at sweaters and Fall clothes that are out suddenly made me feel cool and excited for the fall/winter. I would prefer cold and snow any day over the summer.
Side Note: I bought these shoes this weekend. I kind of love them! 🙂
Here’s to friends, family, cookouts, days off, lazy summer days, hotdogs,fireworks,lakes, and of course let’s not forget what its’ really about: solder’s and their families past and present who have fought to keep this land grand!!!!!
This month is going to be so crazy, but crazy good!
4th of July WednesdayLake trip this weekend – rodeo the week after that with an old friend – floating the river the last week of July…and moving in with a friend August 1st!

“I wish we could spend July by the sea, browning ourselves and feeling water-weighted hair flow behind us from a dive. I wish our gravest concerns were the summer gnats. I wish we were hungry for hot dogs and dopes, and it would be nice to smell the starch of summer linens and the faint odor of talc in blistering summer bath houses… We could lie in long citoneuse beams of the five o’clock sun on the plage at Juan-les-Pins and hear the sound of the drum and piano being scooped out to sea by the waves.”
