Sometimes, when life seems upended by unexpected matters of the day,
just sitting at home is required to calm the mind.
The long, very long, like around the building queue, to get into the
Department of Motor Vehicles to renew my driver's license,
impossible. 90F, humid, no shade, and of course no seats.
I gave up and came home! Will try another day.
My cousin in England's lovely husband undergoing cancer surgery today,
awaiting good news.
Hopes were dashed late last week as my newly found American second
cousin lost her home in the horrific Redding, California 'Carr Wildfire.'
I'm feeling helpless with 2,848 miles between us.
Some rain showers at night seem to be helping the figs ripen at last,
however they just don't have a good flavor this year and I will not
be making jam.
August here already. I don't know about you, but I'm
already thinking about Autumn, my favorite season of the year.
We will be traveling this month and next, just short trips but to
lovely places. This is the year to spend time with special friends,
including blog friends.
I need to start packing. . . . . . .I'm looking forward to
getting back in the sky, and out on the road, to view the
spectacular scenery we have right here in North America.
It's just so sad to see how quickly it can be obliterated
by fire and other earth-shattering happenings.
