Fire Dream


I had a nightmare a few nights ago, fire was in the house, going up the walls, I tried to find the fire extinguisher,  I tried to find a way out, a window, a door... I woke up really scared. Could not go back to sleep because my mind went in gear... I laid there for over an hour making plans on what to do in our house if it caught fire... I went through scenarios of where we would, could be and which way to get Jake and both of us out safe...

I beleive the dream was caused by CNN coverage of the raging fires in 9 states. Note to self..do not watch the news before going to bed.
when i got up the first thing I did was test the fire extinguisher AFTER I found it.. it is now in plain sight in the cabinet by the stove...and I have a PLAN.... a leash in the garage, a leash in the bedroom, checked to see if my fat body will fit through the open window and planned how to get the fat body up high enough to go through the window... grab silver box, grab keys to move vehicles.

Do you have a plan? The Queen Of What If's now has a plan
PS after previewing this post, I added to the Fire plan, Save the Samsung Tablet.. he he he

Beautiful water pictures! My favorite is the last one! I guess after all that fire stress, you needed to do water art! Sometimes after I have watched something on T.V., I will dream about it. But you really put your dream into action...good action! No, we do not have a plan. Shame on us, we even have two cats. I think this post may help several people to do this! Even me.

Hopefully you will never have to utilize that plan. Have a beautiful day!

Important things first! The tablet, the dog, yourself then Bob...is that a fair order?? Teasing.

wow that was a scary dream!! I have a fear of fire too. We know our way out. My biggest fear is Madi will be scared and will hide and I cannot find her.
Her carrier is in the foyer closet.
For sure grab the Samsung
LOL

Regardless how you happened upon that dream, it sounds terrifying!
It's always good to have a plan; something I'd not thought of until now. There's lots I'd sacrifice for the sake of our crazy pups ... not counting DH! (*smile*)

Your photos are gorgeous! even if from a bad dream. Yes the news seems to effect us? No I do not have much of a plan but need to get one

Agreed Sandra that watching the news before bed is not a good idea, but glad it was only a dream that awakened you and nit an actual fire. There are ceiling sprinklers in every room here in the apt. We do not have a fire extinguisher now, but Grenville is a retired fire fighter.

Love the photos.
I do not have a plan. Glad you have worked one out!

Haha--we won't have to worry about the tablet, it'll be in your hand! A plan brings peace of mind, especially after a nightmare. My daughter had never used a fire extinguisher--until she had a small fire on the stove. She learned what a mess THAT makes in a hurry! But she now knows how to use it if she needs it.
