I'm Back From The Holiday

I am back from my trip to our "north" home....
It's about 5 1/2 hours from here...
When we arrived the temp was 89....
the next day it was 57.....
Our county has a ban on burning anything it has (is) been so dry....
there was a wildfire in Upper Michigan.....
when we left it had burned 21,000 acres and was 10% contained.....
so sad!!
While we were North we went to a Memorial Day parade in Mackinac City....
and hit a deer on the way home.....
luckily we had the truck and not the car....
we have a broken grill, broken headlight, and bit more damage.....
the deer, well he has a sore butt for sure, but took off in the woods....

We came home to more dryness....
the grass is a "lovely" burnt yellow....
my flowers are suffering badly.....
my veggie garden looks good though....
as we had our 10 year old granddaughter water daily for us...
she did a good job...

I will be posting a few things later....
after I catch up on things here!!

The fire is still burning and has done some awful damage.Sad.
It was hot here in Traverse City and we had tons of rain.
