this would be pretty...




if it weren't so tragic. Will the entire state burn up before the wildfires are contained? No rain. So dry. And the wind. It is relentless. A fire broke out last summer on the property next to us and burned about 15 acres. Knowing the strength and stamina that it took to put out that small fire, coupled with the fact that breathing was sometimes impossible, multiplying that by thousands, makes it hard to fathom what the firefighters are living through. Some don't. PRAY FOR RAIN!





On the bright side, I can hang my husband's jeans outside and they're dry in 15 minutes. {Ladybird is concerned, too.}




But, not overly so.

It did rain a little...enough to make us feel safe for now. We're thankful for every single drop!
