This is how close the #WoolseyFire got to our homes... We live directly across the street from this hill, at this intersection. #SoThankful

So excited! "Treinta niños, dos cameras..." (translated by Google) "Thirty children, two cameras, failing batteries, endless energy. That was the general recipe behind the contents of this book, which is the proud production of 200 young weavers in the region of Cusco, Peru." Printed in Spanish with some text in Quechua, this book will have me reading with my Google Translate app, plus fingers on the Spanish text trying to follow along. #weaving #culture #Andean #Quechua

Encouraging story of today: Roadblocks were removed near my home last night. Roadblocks near "my" breakfast spot were moved a block away this morning, making the businesses accessible. "My" breakfast spot was open. "My guy" was on the drive-thru. And he tells me that ALL THEIR employees are fine and no one who works there lost their homes. And then they made me a tasty breakfast. I wanted to run in and hug them all. I love that they all lived, their homes all survived, and their jobs are back on the schedule so they can all be paid. <3 <3 <3 #WoolseyFire

Things that change when everything burns or is cutoff by roadblocks: (1) Getting gasoline. I usually fill up at the station by my driveway or the station one exit away, less than 2 miles away. It took 13 miles before I could exit on a non-roadblock to buy gas. (2) Getting a quick drive-thru breakfast sandwich. Usually I go two exits then back on the freeway. Today, my breakfast was 15 miles away. (3) Tonight when I go home, I will probably have to navigate the 3-4 roadblocks before being waved into the residential district again. And when Sweetie and Boyo went for an evening walk, I was nervous they needed ID with addresses on them to be allowed outside on the streets. #WoolseyFire

I love my sister, and staying with her for the evacuation from the fires. I also LOVE THAT I AM AT HOME, SITTING ON MY OWN BED. ❤️

Front (top) and back (bottom) progress so far today. Hand sewing is keeping me from stressing out. #crafty #textiles #handsewing #WoolseyFire #evacuated #somethingtodo

I am safely evacuated but there's no cell coverage at my sister's for my phone service. I am not getting texts or calls. Please use internet communication (messenger, email, etc.) #WoolseyFire

Today's hand sewing while staying evacuated from the fires involves making quilted cloth from scraps before making projects. #crafty #textiles #handsewing #WoolseyFire
