CA fires

The latest I've heard is that there are 15 dead and 200 missing in the wine country wildfires.  One of my sons is in the wholesale grocery business, and I believe he lost two stores to the fire.  This morning's newspaper shows acres of rubble - nothing standing at all.  I just wonder how it can all come back to something near normal, but then we can say the same about Houston, Puerto Rico, Mexico City, etc.  You just never know when or where or how the next disaster will strike, but this seems to be a year of disasters.  My heart goes out to all those affected by them.   I just read that looters are robbing homes after their owners flee from the encroaching fire.  I can't imagine anything more despicable!

After going back to bed after breakfast yesterday and accomplishing very little for the day, I did it again this morning.  I know it must be my diet - I've been eating cereal and fruit in the morning, whereas I had been trying to eliminate wheat where possible.   Also, I know I'm drinking too much milk with the cereal every morning.  I will finish what I have on hand and then try to eat other kinds of foods.  

Did I write yesterday that today I was going to deep clean my kitchen?  Not a chance today!  I haven't started sticking to the floor yet, but I know it will happen soon if I don't scrub it.  

The sun is descending in the west and it's a huge orange ball.  Really beautiful although I can't look at it for more than a second.

Have a good evening, and I hope to be back tomorrow.


  1. I am like you just wondering when the next tragedy will strike. We have had so many of them in such a short time span. There are despicable individuals everywhere who prey on people who have already been victimized.

    Hope you get to feeling better.

    1. It's difficult to even imagine robbing someone who has been through so much grief and probably lost most of what they had anyway.
