It’s a beautiful day today. I love that our valley is all green. I think it looks better today than it did when we first laid eyes on it back in 2005.
The water truck, trailer and sheep are gone this morning. We have no idea where they are today or when they’ll show up in our valley, but know they’ll be here eventually.
I’m still reading Jean Auel’s “Mammoth Hunters” and enjoying every word, although I’ve read it at least twice before. It’s nice to be able to revisit good books.
I wasn’t aware that there had been an earthquake in Ecuador until our good friend Christopher Leenknecht posted on Facebook, asking for donations. The photo below shows workers putting a shipment of donations together, but far more than is shown is needed.
Christopher’s sister-in-law, Mari Maldonado works at South Bay Diesel and Hydraulics, Inc. in National City, CA, (100 W. 35th St., Ste. J-K, National City, CA 91950, (619) 498-1113 in the Accounting Dept. ) and she’s collecting items to be sent to the survivors of the 7.5 magnitude earthquake. If you can donate something from the list below, it would be greatly appreciated. They’re not asking for money, but rather non-perishable food, clothing and comfort items such as the items shown below.
*Water Bottle, sport drinks
*Diapers, baby food
*Non-perishable food items (beans, tuna, soup, etc.)
*Toiletries (soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste & toothbrushes)
*Tents, batteries, flashlights, tarps
*Plastic tables & chairs, etc.
Thank you and blessings for anything you can do to help.
Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Know that there are always others in this world who are poorer than you are, who are in worse pain that you are, and have more burdens to carry than you do. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.
