Monday was the last full day of my vacation. Mom and I, took Rayna with us, and took a ride through the mountains of Western North Carolina. After dropping the books I sold over the weekend off at the post office and getting something to eat for breakfast we head off on our ride.
We stopped at a Wendy's in Marion. The smoke from want I believe is the Clear Creek Fire, which is one of like 14 fires in Western Carolina, could be seen from all around Marion. The smoke from the fire was very heavy along Highway 70, west of Marion. It is sad to see the forest burning. The good news is so far no one has lost their homes or lives yet. I was going to post about my trip last night but I ended up falling asleep from being so tired.
Today, mom and I went shopping for the last of the stuff we needed for the Thanksgivings Dinner. I was glad it did not cost as much as I was thinking it was going too. We even got a few extra things not on our list. Including my mom and me, there will be at least 14 people eating at my house.
