Colorado is smokin' hot

Yet another fire began today. We had some lightning, and with the heat and aridity of this summer already...a tinderbox. I took this photo from a cafe near downtown where I tutored a student today. I think that makes 4 or 5 wildfires that are burning in CO right now.

(And I have no idea why the text suddenly got all weird and centered.)

You can really smell the smoke from my place tonight. It's hard on the eyes.

Yesterday it was 102 degrees F, we're setting all kinds of heat records, and today we got a little gift: a day mostly around 90 and even below 90. Aaaaahhh.


For fun, I thought I'd show you my shins...they're all covered with cuts and bruises from the move, and from constantly banging into all the boxes and paintings that are stacked all over the condo.


 How do you stay cool? Apparently sleeping on glass is something to try:

The skinny, fanged Rumi monster.

I hope you are fine. And cats, too. They show on TV here a frightening disaster in Colorado. Be strong and safe, girl.

oh my girls keep knocking everything off of my glass table so they can lie on it.
Thinking of you...
