Hello Friends, you may have heard by now that my county in Southern California is burning. Again. I am writing this while sitting in a Starbucks coffee shop. We were notified of our evacuation as the first to receive the notification. But. We weren't at home, so we were unable to pack anything. However, we are ok and so is our home.
So here are my Five Faves From this new Fire. Here is the link. Hope it works! Until I can get my computer, I can't seem to link up... Www.susannesspace.blogspot.com
1. We are safe.
2. As of now, our home is safe and secure.
3. We had a place to sleep last night. Friends invited us immediately to stay with them. Actually, we had numerous offers for a bed. We were amazed and overehelmed by the immediate response of so many people offering help.
4. Following on #3, we were encouraged and felt so very loved by so many calls, emails and texts from friends and family checking on us. Those misty eyes of mine --maaybe it is the smoke in the air; or maybe not.
5. I am so thankful that The Professor and I were together when our phones began ringing with mandatory evacuation notices. I had planned to drive up to the shopping mall by myself, but in the end I waited for him to finish a task and he went with me. Otherwise, I would have been fighting my way down toward him on very.very.very slow back roads and he would have been walking out of our area to evacuate. Together is better. Even though we took that road to our friends' home, we were together.
